Fedora Community Outreach Revamp Update #4

We launched the Community Outreach Revamp in July of 2020. The goal of the Revamp is to identify what makes Fedora’s Outreach teams struggle, create a clear plan to move forward based on community feedback, and execute that plan. All of these efforts focus on creating a cohesive, sustainable, and empowering Outreach program for Fedora.

As of January 2021 the Revamp is now a Fedora Objective! With the Fedora Council approving the objective after community feedback, the Revamp becomes a medium-term goal of the Council. The co-leads of the Revamp, Mariana Balla and Sumantro Mukherjee, are Council members through the completion of the objective. We will provide updates on the Community Outreach Revamp at the regular Council meetings. More details about the Community Outreach Revamp as an Objective can be found on the wiki page.

On Saturday, 20 February 2021, we will give a talk on the Community Outreach Revamp during the DevConf.CZ conference. The co-leads, as well as Marie Nordin (FCAIC), will share the vision of the Revamp, the progress that has been made so far together with some very interesting findings, and what the expectations are upon the completion of this initiative. Join us to find out more and to ask your questions on Saturday from 2:00pm to 2:25pm CET. This session is part of the Fedora track sessions.

Fedora @ FOSDEM: how you can participate

This year, we are doing FOSDEM virtual style!

As expected, the conference is going online for the 2021 edition, which gives us Fedorans the chance to learn, share, and spend time with each other and the greater FOSS community. We need your help in making this a fun experience for everyone!

Community Outreach Revamp: call for AMA questions

As a lot of you might know, we have started our journey towards revamping Fedora’s outreach efforts. In this process, we have come to a state where we urge the community members to ask us questions and discuss the progress of the revamp process.

We are holding an Ask Me Anything (AMA) on December 10th 2020 at 1500 UTC in the Mindshare Matrix channel. To facilitate, we have a discourse thread for the community to post their questions in advance. Of course, we will also accept questions on the day of the AMA.

The FCAIC along with the Taskforce Co-leads will answer the questions.
