A dedicated Gobby session is now running on !

*UPDATE*: To address some initial security concerns, I've locked down this instance to Fedora contributors only. The password can be found in ~lmacken/gobby on (via ssh) Yes, this raises the bar a little bit, but more of a reason to get a Fedora account ;)

What is Gobby, you ask?

"Gobby is a free collaborative editor supporting multiple documents in one session and a multi-user chat. It runs on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other Unix-like platforms."

If you're running Fedora, simply install the 'gobby' package, and you're ready to go. Click "Join Session", and connect to "". You'll then be able to collaborate in real-time with others on code, documents, notes, etc.

Since this is wide-open for anyone to use, I've also setup a cron job that frequently commits the session to a git repository. You can view the changes to our gobby session via gitweb. Regardless, you should still save anything that you expect to keep locally.

So today I setup a Gobby server for us Fedora hackers to play around with. This will allow people to collaborate in real-time on code, notes, whatever. With the VirtualFUDCon this week, it may be a good place to collaborate on ideas and such. To check it out, install 'gobby', and connect to This is a test instance, so be sure to save everything that you expect to keep, and feel free to drop your comments/suggestions in the 'sobby notes' document.
