Hello Mel,

Greetings.  :)

Thanks for your posting update.  :)

> Indeed - what you're seeing is the initial design sketch for  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Insight, which will be launching  around the same time Beta comes out. You can see the test version going  up at https://publictest6.fedoraproject.org/zikula/ (warning: *very*  rough! *very* much a test! *NOT DONE YET!*) and follow along on the  http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/logistics/ mailing list if you  are curious.

Cool, URLs noted and tried them both out.  Seems as you said, the https://publictest6.fedoraproject.org/zikula/ is a work in progress...I got the following error this weekend and today, when trying to access the URL -

Warning: Loader::require(includes/classes/Smarty/Smarty.class.php) [function.Loader-require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/share/zikula/includes/Loader.class.php on line 326

Fatal error: Loader::require() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'includes/classes/Smarty/Smarty.class.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php') in /usr/share/zikula/includes/Loader.class.php on line 326

I'll try that URL again later on.  :)

> Yep! Thanks for the reminder - we will be working on press kits starting  in a few weeks. Had to get the slogan and the talking points done first, though. ;)

Cool, when those appear, then please send a yo ho and I would like to look and see this.  :)

> (more feedback on talking points?

What I think / thought was cool stuff in the latest release of Fedora...Dracut, GRUB with ext4, and IPV6.

read about the Dracut product and I have been trying that out.  At this
time, I am not very impressed with Dracut.  After conducting about
eight or so kernel updates on my variety of systems, Dracut is slow
about 20+ minutes in order to invoke the kernel update.  Afterward,
doing kernel updates, I receive the ABRT indicating I had a kernel
failure...sort of a false negative if you can see my mind.  So I am
sort of actually happy that Dracut is not in the list.  :)

As a future RHEL6 system administrator, an important aspect to be aware of in F12 is IPV6 support as well as GRUB with ext4.  :)
> how can we make these more useful to you?

If I was not familiar with a talking point, then "help me" to be able to convey the content.  The use of effective presentations which have been done in either video/sound and/or podcast will help will doing the presentation of material which I may not have first hand experience on.  My thought is if others have presented or created content on this, then give me a URL to review so I may integrate their content into my "speech."  :)

> I would be particularly interested in what the "user" talking  points sound like to a non-technical person - do they make sense?

I think that for both a user as well as a system administrator, the XZ
payload content using the LZMA format, is right on the money.  :)

In the user section for PackageKit, does not do it for me as a user.  I am not excited by the content.  The PackageKit content is a little beyond my technical understanding as a user.  I think
that as a system administrator, that would be good stuff to read.  :)

> are  they compelling?)

The NetworkManager and video content hit the points.  :)

Also, the libguestfs and virtualization content are well understood by me.  :)

As a talking points reference of main points, the content is there.  :v)

Mel, I guess samples of the main F12 talking points which is useful for doing my presentation.  I will practice with the current "F12 talking points" content and always make sure that additional F12 information is available as a reference.  :v)

Please have a great day!  :~)

Thank You
