Call for Projects and Mentors for Outreachy December-March Cohort

Fedora will be participating in the upcoming round of Outreachy (December 2021-March 2022) and we are looking for more projects and mentors!

Being a community of diverse people from various backgrounds and different walks of life, the Fedora Project has been participating as a mentoring organization for Outreachy internships for years. The Outreachy program is instrumental in providing a rich experience in working with free and open-source software. Fedora is a proud participant.

If you have a project idea for the upcoming round of Outreachy, open a ticket in the mentored projects repository. Even if you don’t have a project idea, you can volunteer to be a mentor for a project. As a mentor, you will guide interns through the completion of the project. We are also looking for general mentors for the facilitation of proper communication of feedback and evaluation with the interns working on the selected projects.

Please submit your project ideas and mentorship availability ASAP. The deadline for projects to Outreachy is September 23rd. The Mentored Projects Coordinators will review your ideas and help you prep your project proposal to be submitted to Outreachy.

Mentoring can be a fulfilling pursuit. It is beneficial for you, the intern and applicants, the Fedora Project, and the overall open source ecosystem. Join us in fostering the growth of our community and the love of open source!

I’m looking for YOUR stories from Fedora history

Hey everyone! In a couple of weeks, I’m going to be giving a talk at Open Source Summit called “35 Fedora Releases in 30 minutes“.

This is basically going to be a whirlwind tour of our history. I was there for a lot of it, but not all, and certainly not from all perspectives. In preparation, I’d like to get more of your input. If you’re interested in sharing what you remember about Fedora Core 3 (Heidelberg), or Fedora Linux 8 (Werewolf!), or even F23 or F27 or whatever, or anywhere in between, I’d love to hear from you.

If you’ve got something interesting to share, please contact me. Reply to this post, send me a message to @mattdm:fedora.im on matrix, send email, tweet at me, etc. We can set up a video call, or you can just send ideas, or whatever.

CPE to staff EPEL work

We are pleased to announce that Red Hat is establishing a small team directly responsible for participating in EPEL activities. Their job isn’t to displace the EPEL community, but rather to support it full-time. We expect many beneficial effects, among those better EPEL readiness for a RHEL major release. The EPEL team will be part of the wider Community Platform Engineering group, or CPE for short.

As a reminder, CPE is the Red Hat team combining IT and release engineering from Fedora and CentOS.
Right now we are staffing up the team and expect to see us begin this work from October 2021. Keep an eye on the EPEL mailing list and the associated tracker as we begin this exciting journey with the EPEL community.
