Congratulations and many thanks to everyone who was involved in the effort to unbundle zlib from rsync! Looks like this long standing bug that’s been a sore spot for many distributions is finally being addressed. It almost makes me want to create a Fedora 18 Feature page for it :-)
If you were at the first day of PyCon Santa Clara this year, you might have seen the picketing employees outside the main hotel/conference center. Looks like the reason for that protest has made it to the attention of a group that’s going to send a petition to the Hyatt management.
