,----[ Quote ]
| The joined organization, named "DuraSpace," will sustain and grow its 
| flagship repository platforms - Fedora and DSpace. DuraSpace will also expand 
| its portfolio by offering new technologies and services that respond to the 
| dynamic environment of the Web and to new requirements from existing and 
| future users. DuraSpace will focus on supporting existing communities and 
| will also engage a larger and more diverse group of stakeholders in support 
| of its not-for-profit mission. The organization will be led by an executive 
| team consisting of Sandy Payette (Chief Executive Officer), Michele Kimpton 
| (Chief Business Officer), and Brad McLean (Chief Technology Officer) and will 
| operate out of offices in Ithaca, NY and Cambridge, MA.         


PackageKit in Fedora 11.

,----[ Quote ]
| In Fedora 11, we have a number of features that are the result of a planned 
| process of maturation. We often put new features into the distribution with 
| the purpose of garnering more information on how people put a technology to 
| work. Then that information can be digested by developers to help them design 
| and refine their software. It’s a cultivation mentality: By focusing more 
| attention on advanced technologies, we help them mature and improve faster. 
| Including them in a popular, high-volume distribution whose mission is to 
| advanced free and open source software is a natural strategic fit.

Red Hat Fedora Claims It's the Leader in Linux
