A Fedora Activity Day (FAD) was organized on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at the Red Hat office premises in Pune, India.

Discussion in progress

This was an activity based event, where there were no talks. The various topics suggested during the FAD included development, packaging, and documentation work.

The newbies worked on GNU Hello RPM packaging, while others worked on pushing updates to existing packages, and packaging new software.

I had submitted a new Csmith package release for review, and packaged and submitted sized-types, and netlist-to-vhdl Haskell packages for review. Lakshmi Narasimhan completed the package review for sized-types.

I had requested Fedora Infrastructure to make Agilo for Trac (Apache license) available. It was made available for testing during the FAD, and I tested the same with the Fedora Electronic Lab trac instance. All the Agilo plugins are now enabled in the trac for use.

We also had an F17 release party during the event, where Rahul Sundaram cut a beautiful, tasty, F17 cake.
