Default ISV guide to the Summit

To all of our partner friends:

We've received a lot of inquiries from our partners about packaging their
software in RPM format for use with Fedora. With good reasons:

* Millions of Fedora users can install any RPM in the Fedora universe with one
simple command.

* RPM is the cornerstone of Linux systems management applications, allowing
sysadmins to manage a complete list of all software on their systems, through
many different tools.

* RPM is also the basis of much of the appliance work that Red Hat is
advancing. Putting your software into RPM format makes it much simpler to
build Live CDs, network install images, or even virtual appliances around your
software solution.

Any open source software provider can package their work as an RPM for Fedora.
Getting software into Fedora is not as easy as it could be, but it's not that
difficult, either -- and we are committed to working with our partners to make
it as painless as possible.

At the Red Hat Summit / Fedora User and Developer conference, developers have
unprecedented access to the knowledge of the Red Hat and Fedora communities.

of RPM and Fedora, we would like to recommend the following sessions:
