Lets start with some distro news:

- Fedora 18 finally appeared and plans for inclusions in 19 are being worked out
- Ubuntu going rolling release? No…
- If you are using MoinMoin for a wiki, you better update… It is rather critical!
- More software nearing python-3 ready. This time django is close…
- Given how much is still using libjpeg-6, I’m not sure I’d be compressing JPEGs using this yet…
- Bye bye systemd myths – and here goes the prize for best comment.
- Another post in the “autotools mythbuster” series – the main “book” is worth a read too
And some collected commentary:
- How to get involved at Gentoo – most applies to Arch too..
- A quite good summary of what it means to be a rolling release
- What is the best MAKEFLAG for your number of processors?
- I’m always impressed by the ability to brick things just by booting!
- A fix for a timing issue in the “-ck” kernel, discovered by an Arch user tying to compile glibc
- Hrmm… which one is supossed to be the bad guy here?
