The August 2007 meeting of the Triangle Linux Users Group (Sponsored by 
Red Hat, Inc. http://redhat.com/) will be held at 7pm, August 9, at Red 
Hat on the Centennial Campus of North Carolina State University 
http://www.redhat.com/about/contact/ww/americas/raleigh.html).  Our 
speakers will be Max Spevack and Greg DeKoenigsberg of the Fedora 
Project and Red Hat, Inc.

The talk is on Fedora 7 from the perspective of a free software contributor:

1) How packages get into Fedora.  Who owns them, how they are built, etc.

2) The compose tools that actually create the distribution.  How they 
work, how to contribute to them, and how to use them in order to spin a 
custom version of Fedora.  A demonstration will be in order!

3) Fedora's community perspective.  How we try to build community -- 
both technical and non-technical -- and how people can become involved 
in Fedora.

Max Spevack is the current Fedora Project Leader.  He has been with Red 
Hat since 2004, previously as the QA team lead for Red Hat Network.  He 
has a BS in Computer Science.

Greg DeKoenigsberg is the community development manager for Red Hat. He 
is a former leader and board member emeritus of the Fedora Project.  He 
has been with Red Hat since 2001.  Many of the members of TriLUG know 
him better as "Darlene".

There will also be a key signing arranged by Paul D. Boyle.  You can
