Fedora Council elections scheduled
Fedora Project Leader Matthew Miller has announced the election schedule meant to fill the two new "at large" slots on Fedora's upcoming Fedora Council governance body. "These positions are of strategic importance, with a full voice in the Council's consensus process. The primary function of the Council is to identify community goals and to organize and enable the project to achieve them." Nominations will be open from November 4 through 10; voting be open from November 18 through 25. The week in between will be for campaigning. Miller also encourages potential candidates to consider the time commitment the new roles require. "We recognize that this level of commitment is difficult for many community members with full-time jobs not directly related to Fedora, and the intent is not to exclude those contributors. At the same time, these positions will require a meaningful commitment of time and responsiveness. If your other obligations make this impossible, please consider suggesting candidacy to other community members who you feel would be able to bring your voice to the table."

KVM Matures, and the Use Cases Multiply (Linux.com)
Over at Linux.com, Adam Jollans has a report from the recently completed KVM Forum that was held in Düsseldorf, Germany October 14-16. He looks at a talk that he gave on KVM's relationship to OpenStack and the open cloud, a new white paper on KVM [PDF], and a panel on network function virtualization (NFV): "In the past, communications networks have been built with specific routers, switches and hubs with the configuration of all the components being manual and complex. The idea now is to take that network function, put it into software running on standard hardware.
The discussion touched on the demands – in terms of latency, throughput, and packet jitter – that network function virtualization places on KVM when it is being run on general purpose hardware and used to support high data volume. There was a lively discussion about how to get fast communication between the virtual machines as well as issues such as performance and sharing memory, as attendees drilled down into how KVM could be applied in new ways."
