Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!
I wrote this post a week ago, but wordpress ate it while publishing and I published only the title..
By the way, I decide to organize meeting on 2009 planning activities, opened to all Italian fedora contributors. We discusses (and discussion is still in progress) about:
• Sponsorship: find guidelines to define fair and clear get-give process
• Fedora release parties: how to improve it, how to make it more interesting?
• Fedora lab: It was on agenda but who had to speak about it (I prefer to maintain secret his identity), felt asleep during the meeting
This meeting was more a brainstorming, to have a starting point.
We are proud to announce that Symbolic1.2.1 has been released today.
With this minor release we didn’t add new features, but concentrated our work to improving User Interface and simplify the User experience.
We did a lot of work on documentation by rewriting most parts of it, by adding “quick start” tutorial, troubleshooting section.
You can find screenshots of the new interface (which is a bit different from previous release) on demo website section.
You can download RPM for Fedora 10, RHEL 5 and WAR here.
If you need help or want to contact us to report bugs, submit patches and ideas you are welcome, the best way is to use our mailing list.
