Raleigh, We Have a Problem
Something is going on at Fedora Project central, but what exactly it is, we don't quite know. In a brief message to the Fedora announce mailing list last Thursday, Fedora Project Leader Paul Frields revealed that the project's "infrastructure systems" were experiencing an "issue," which was under investigation by the Infrastructure Team. He warned that service outages were likely, and went as far as to recommend that users avoid updating or downloading any packages until the problem was resolved.
In an equally brief follow-up on Saturday, Frields reported that work was continuing on the "issues" — the nature of which he did not disclose — with the then-current focus being restoration of the account system and certain application servers. He also indicated that some systems would be upgraded in the process, utilizing the opportunity provided by the downtime. The message closed by advising that outages were expected to continue for some systems, and asked for users to remain patient while the repairs are underway.
As of this writing, no further updates have been forthcoming, and the project's Weekly News report contained no additional information about the status of the issue, other than to note that a considerable amount of work was underway to make repairs. Breaking News will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
