For those of you unsure whether to laugh about this at FUDCon, just a link to show these really exist, despite the name.

Dear lazyweb, is this possible with AMQP?

Producer sends messages to the server. Messages are not lost if the server is restarted. Messages are not lost if the producer is sending a message and the server is down.

Multiple consumers can connect to the server and receive all of the messages. Some of the consumers will be connected almost all the time. Other consumers will poll (they will be fired off by cron jobs). In both cases, the consumers should receive all of the messages that the producer has sent.

Terminology like "fanout" and "durable queues" seems to be where I need to look but I'm not sure if they're really the same concepts.

FUDCon Live!

Just a quick FUDCon note: We are trying to make it easier for people who are not able to make it to FUDCon itself to see some of the things going on and get some value from the sessions. Check out the FUDCon Live wiki page for a list of sessions, when they're happening, and logs from finished sessions.

Looking at the logs, you may notice that they're logs from IRC. This is because we have people transcribing highlights from all the sessions into irc channels as they're happening. This is an opportunity for people, not just to follow along at home but also to ask questions and join in with the conference sessions.

How to join the Fedora Live IRC channels?

  1. First, view the FUDCon Live schedule to see what sessions are currently taking place.
  2. Then use your IRC client to go to
  3. Third, join the #fudcon-room-[NUMBER] channel that corresponds to the room number that the session is being held in.
  4. Sit back, read, and ask questions!

Here's an example:

I'm interested in the Sysadmin & Developer Panel. I see that it is in Room 7 on the wiki schedule. I open up konversation and go to as the server. Then I /join #fudcon-room-7 and participate in the conversation that's going on.


I was afraid that the FUDBus to Toronto FUDCon would be a bust when I found out that our planned wifi and AC Power was not to be but it turned out to be quite productive. I spent most of the day talking to Dave Malcolm about getting Python 3 Packaging Guidelines and packages into Fedora. We've simplified a bit of it, clarified other bits, and the only really difficult thing left is figuring out whether to allow one srpm to handle modules that build both python2 and python3 subpackages or separate srpms for python2 and python3. There's pros and cons to each that we'll have to weigh against each other before we can settle on a solution. We'll keep thinking about this and hopefully have something finished by the end of FUDCon.

I also got to talk to mizmo about how to become better at designing user interfaces with inkscape. By happy chance, she's doing a presentation tomorrow on just that topic and gave me a sneak peak with the slides she prepared. So as not to spoil her presentation, all I'll say for now is that I think it's a *very* useful presentation. Mo showed both a broad overview of making mockups in inkscape and the key specific features that she uses. Much like mmcgrath's presentation last year about how system admins in infrastructure have handled problems, this is a presentation that will help you on multiple levels. It will give you skills to design UIs and better work with inkscape to create artwork. It will also show you something of the process and thinking of a UI designer, an often underappreciated but hugely important part of our work.

Other bus topics: A bit of discussion about replacing cvs with a new version control system, updating packagedb and cvs acls to allow a comaintainer-only packager group, and arranging with lmacken to do a TG2 quickstart with csrf and fas auth plugins sometime during the hackfest. If I canget that to work, I'll be able to write a guide that tells others how to use these pieves of python-fedora in their TG2 applications.

Before Language

Patter patter swish is a shower running in the morning
Tchic-tchic, tchic-tchic is a car that won't turn over in the cold
Crunch crunch crunch is you and I walking through frost sheathed grass.
