Fedora Newsletter – July 2022

DSpace news - პარ, 05/08/2022 - 21:23

We hope that you all enjoyed your July long weekends, whether it was for July 4th in the US or Canada Day north of the border, we hope that the weather was nice, the BBQ’s were hot and drinks were cold. As we move officially in to summer, we wanted to keep you updated on some of the things we have going on in the coming weeks. Read on to find out more. 

News You’re Invited! Fedora Summer Open Houses 

We are officially inviting you to join us at one of our 2 upcoming Fedora Open Houses being held this month. These open houses are meant to be an opportunity to share use cases, ask questions and come together to learn about what we’ve been working on. In the interest of accommodating different time zones, we opted to host two separate events – one catering to North America and one for those in the EU/UK. We hope you can join us for one (or both!) of the following sessions: 

Tuesday, July 26th from 12pm – 1pm Eastern – https://bit.ly/3PkEJ0Y 

Wednesday, July 27th from 10am – 11am Eastern – https://bit.ly/3c2iiiQ 

The Open House events are FREE to attend, so bring your colleagues and friends to listen in on the conversation. The more the merrier! Check out all that is going on in our new Community Calendar

IMLS Grant Migration Toolkit 

At the end of June, the first draft of the Migration Toolkit was released to the community for feedback and comments. This toolkit is a result of the IMLS Funded Grant Project – Fedora Migration Paths & Tools: A Pilot Project. Pilot Partners at the University of Virginia and Whitman College collaboratively created the content for the toolkit to provide resources for migrating from Fedora 3 to the newest, most supported version of the software, Fedora 6. It contains instructions for the migration process, templates, metadata remediation best practices and user stories collected throughout the course of the grant. You can also find links to the migration utilities and validation tooling created as a result of the work. 

You can see the Draft Toolkit here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZGrofJU-vAYOitGJabJ10Brcvo_oFjTO46FxEK7vmgM/edit?usp=sharing 

We are asking the community to review the contents, instructions and templates contained within the Toolkit and provide feedback and comments. All comments should be entered before July 29, 2022 at which point the Pilot Partners and Fedora team will review and finalize the document for community-wide distribution and use. We look forward to hearing your feedback! 

Technology Update 

In June, the committer and tech team delivered Fedora 6.2.0, which contained some non-critical bug fixes, improvements to the HMLT UI and a new Statistics API. This Statistics API, a feature of which was requested by community users, will allow you to gather information quickly and easily about the contents of your repository at a given point in time.  

Additionally, the team has continued to work on optimizing performance and resolving bugs. They have focused on updating dependencies and have spent time adding features to both the migration and validation tools. Both tools now support “resume” functionality so that you can restart a migration or validation from where the process previously stopped. You can also now opt for a “head” only (ie. The most recent) migration if you don’t need to return your entire Fedora 3 version history. 

The team continues to meet every Thursday at 11am Eastern if you would like to join us for our weekly Tech Call. This call is open for anyone to join, even if just to listen in on the conversation. All are welcome!
