Want to tame Firefox and make sure it follows your organization's regulations?
Here is my little write up on how you can do this on Fedora:
It'll explain how to generate a policy to enforce your DoH settings and also provide a very basic RPM spec file on how to deploy such a policy to your systems.
I spend some time of my evening tinkering with my notebook's settings and a UEFI update. In order to make it easier for you, I wrote a little summary on how I did it and how maybe your next firmware update looks like:
If you look for a hardening guide for your linux system, I can recommend "The practical linux hardening Guide" by trimstray.
1. It's based on SCAP policies.
2. It uses standards
3. It provides you with references and rationals, not just actions
This will allow you to consider whenever or not you should apply this configuration to your setup.
#Fedora is about to stop providing x86 bootable images. Which means your x86-only hardware will no longer work with Fedora 31.
There are good reasons to stop using #x86 hardware and I hope it's possible for you, to work this out. If you are a Fedora user and you run on x86-only hardware and you have no way to get any kind of newer hardware, feel free to reach out to me, I guess we can figure out a solution :)
More details in the Fedora Magazine:
Friends at Fedora with a Yahoo account, please watch out:
TL;DR: Yahoo filters mails form Fedora's mailinglists etc. So when you want to stay in the loop, you either have to check bugzilla and Hyperkitten yourself, or maybe just get another mail provider.
I recommend to get an own domain while switching (if you not already have), that makes switching in future so much easier 😉
it's time to support your Fedora Userbase as simple as possible.
Packit-as-a-service is here, which simply integrates with your upstream repository and allows builds on the latest version of Fedora, so all your project can be automatically picked up by latest Fedora release engineers and integrate it into the next version of the OS.
(More docs should follow soon)
If you wonder why people love to use the CLI on Linux one of the main reasons is piping commands.
The #Fedora magazine just published an article teaching the basics. Maybe you'll enjoy it, give it a try :)
Do you use `pass` as password manager on your machine?
There is an extension to verify your passwords against the HIBP database of known passwords and make sure that your password wasn't exposed during a data breach. (Of course without telling your password apart)
This extension is packaged on #Fedora as pass-pwned.
Brian "bex" Exelbierd wrote an article about it, and how to install it on any other distro on opensource.com:
it's time to vote ☑️

There are many community projects out there but not all of them are equally big and equally democratic.
The Fedora project is quite big and organizes hundreds of contributions and contributor in a democratic way with various groups and places where you as well as any other community member can be elected:
Feel free to join us and participate. You don't need to be a developer, a translator, an innovator, a supporter, …

The Fedora Magazine provided a new article about using the Fedora Account System (FAS) and how to use the desktop integrated Kerberos Login to have SSO enabled for all Fedora services:
And did you know, that the FAS works with CodiMD when you enabled the OpenID login?
Just sign into: https://<your account name>.id.fedoraproject.org 🎉
And yes, you can try it on https://demo.codimd.org
Looks like I made it to install fluidkeys on Fedora using a own RPM 🎉
Will try to use it tomorrow and see if it fits for my usecase.
Already thanks a lot @paul for working on this!
Oh and this is my first golang package, thanks a lot to all the Fedora contributors who made the tooling so easy.
Using Gnome and want to speed up your workflow?
Switching the application is easy, `Super-key + tab` and you can switch through applications. But what if you have multiple windows per application?
`Super-key + ^` will do the job. It let's you either switch through windows of your current application or through windows selected using `Super-key + tab`.
Bored at your Grandma's place? Sit down with her and write down your and her favorite recipes :)
We all know that mom's and grandma's cooking is the best, so share it with the world!

Not only can you spend some fun time with your grandma, you can also share her knowledge with the world and who knows where this knowledge will live on for decades :)
I guess you know Gravatar? This service where you upload your profile picture and every platform that knows your mail address can use it to generate a link for an image?
There is a #FLOSS alternative around it's called #libravatar. It has been around for such a long time, that the original authors decided they got too old to do it. They decided to shutdown the service this year.
Now the #Fedora Community stepped in and will continue the service:
P.S.: It's federated ;)
