Here’s your weekly Fedora report. Read what happened this week and what’s coming up. Your contributions are welcome (see the end of the post)! The Beta freeze is underway. F34 Beta release candidate 1 was declared no-go. The Fedora Linux 34 Beta Go/No-Go meeting is Thursday. We will target the “target date #1” milestone of 23 March.

I have weekly office hours on Wednesdays in the morning and afternoon (US/Eastern time) in #fedora-meeting-1. Drop by if you have any questions or comments about the schedule, Changes, elections, or anything else. See the upcoming meetings for more information.

Remember that many locations are changing to/from summer time in the next few weeks.
