I am Udit Sharma , a student of Kautilya Institute of Technology, Jaipur. I
am doing my B.tech in Computer Science. Currently in my 3rd year. I am web
Developer/Designer for last 3 years & contributing a lot to Open Source
Environment, I love Open source & I love Linux especially Fedora
Distribution. I am Mozilla Campus REP too and handling a lot of projects
under Mozilla Campus Club.Today I sign up for Fedora Ambassador program to
spread the word Fedora to the people.
I was searching for some press stuff for F10, but at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing/PressReleases I did'nt found
there any texts about F10 I can use out of the box. Does anybody know
where I can find it?
For F10 I can update the presskit, but maybe someone has some main
points I can put in.

"Paul Frields, Red Hat's Fedora project leader, told me that this
'decade' release of Fedora was the best ever without any significant
bugs. Yeah. I've heard that before.
You know what though? Based on my early work with Fedora 10, Frields is
right. This is one clean, mean cutting-edge Linux distribution. "
An interview with Max Spevack, former leader of Fedora Project on his
role in the community architecture team
"There's a continuum of distros with respect to how they view freedom,
and I think we take a pretty hard line in terms of what we will or will
not include in Fedora and on the repositories, and I think people
appreciate that and want to see Red Hat defend free software as well.
That's what I mean by keeping trust."
Details out upgrading manually, using cd/dvd, using fedora-release and
yum, preupgrade. A fairly complete reference
"Once a release is available, you can run PreUpgrade at any time by
entering the command preupgrade as root (in Fedora 10 and later, you
will be able to start the program directly from PackageKit, the default
software installer). PreUpgrade is a wizard that steps you through the
necessary upgrade steps. Your only input to the wizard is to select the
distribution to which to upgrade, and click the Apply and Forward
buttons to move through the wizard. PreUpgrade downloads the packages
needed by the upgrade, and you can continue to work until you are ready
to reboot and finish the process.
Using PreUpgrade is probably the easiest way to upgrade, and from the
traffic on the Fedora user list, it's probably the one that most people
plan to use on Fedora 10."
"Having shelled out a lot of cash, Red Hat is pretty pumped about KVM,
and as Fedora project manager, Frields isn't being subtle about Xen.
"People should look at that as a harbinger," he says. "Fedora has always
been the trendsetter for Linux technologies, and a lot of the
technologies in Fedora become de facto standards."
"Fedora 10 has a number of neat-o features that Linux enthusiasts will
want to take out for a spin. The Network Manager now has an "instant on"
collaboration feature that allows for a machine with an Ethernet or
mobile broadband connection to share that connection with other wireless
machines in its vicinity."
Somewhat, a long article but worth a read
"A less stressful but still demanding background issue is the rapid
growth of the community. According to Frields, membership in the Fedora
community has gone from under 2000 to over 15,000 in the last year.
Frields attributes this growth to a number of factors, including the
effort under his leadership to make the steps in becoming part of the
community easier; the doubling in size of the ambassador program,
Fedora's grass roots evangelism effort; Fedora's emphasis on good
relations with the upstream community (that is, the individual projects
that go into a distribution), and the realization by business that
Fedora is the place to see the content of upcoming releases of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. "
“This is the first step for a bigger road map for Fedora 11 and beyond,”
said Frields. “Open a document without the right fonts installed, and
that will be taken care of automatically. Open a data file you don't
have the right application for, [and] it will be able to provide that
