Podcast: Fedora lead – Robyn takes the mic

When you get a chance to sit down with Robyn Bergeron, current incumbent leader of the Fedora project you take it. Robyn and I have recorded before in February but this time we had some time on our hands without any pressure and decided to record a really amazing show talking:

These shows ARE longer than I usually broadcast but it’s Christmas and genuinely you very rarely get to hear behind the scenes at a major Linux distribution and this is a real chance to get that opportunity.

Podcast: Robyn Bergeron talks Fedora

Today’s podcast is with Robyn Bergeron who is of course the Community Project Leader of the Fedora Project, the erstwhile evergreen Linux distribution sponsored by Red Hat.

Last June Robyn and I were in Boston together and I meant to get her in front of one of my microphones to record a podcast but it was the last day of Red Hat Summit and people were packing up and getting ready to disappear all points east and west and it never happened.

So it was a given that the first opportunity I had to record something with her turned into a forty five minute recording I’ve cut down to about 25 minutes or so for this podcast.  We talk Fedora of course, releases, release criteria and etiquette, conventions and community, we talk OpenStack, we talk Aeolus and JBoss and all things technical that make up Fedora’s capabilities as part of upstream RHEL.

Listen carefully and you may even hear John Mark Walker from Gluster.org muscle in on the recording. Do of course download and listen, or subscribe via iTunes, Stitcher Internet Radio, Podfeed or via the RSS using your client of choice.
