Mindshare Committee F2F Readout

The Mindshare Committee held a face-to-face spread over two days, June 7th & 14th. We met for a total of four hours, spending half our time on discussion and half playing GeoGuessr. We discussed topics such as new logo swag and what we want to do at Nest. We also got a sneak peak at the Community Survey results. Another goal of the F2F was to actually see each others faces and spend a bit of time out of IRC hanging out with each other. In a pre-COVID world, we definitely would have met up a couple times already—we miss each other!

Help make Fedora awesome by taking the first Annual Contributor Survey!

The Fedora Council is running the first Annual Fedora Contributor Survey and we want to hear from you! The survey will be open to take for the month of June, and there is a shiny Fedora Badge to earn. Our goal is to gather authentic and valuable feedback to better support the Fedora contributor community. We plan to analyze the results and share findings at Nest with Fedora, 2021. Take the Annual Fedora Contributor Survey today!

The survey was proposed and developed by Council member, Aleksandra Fedorova, with support from Marie Nordin (promotion & feedback coordination) and Vipul Siddharth (LimeSurvey wrangler). The Council as well as the Mindshare Committee gave input and feedback on the survey several times as it was being developed. The Community Outreach Revamp Objective team also pitched in on the Community Engagement section of the survey. The development of a yearly survey falls under the Revamp’s activities and we want to keep survey fatigue at a minimum so it made sense to tie these two initiatives together.

Updated Chart for Fedora’s Organization

The “How is Fedora Organized?” page on Fedora docs has been updated with the org chart below. This chart shows governing bodies, teams, editions/spins, and initiatives. Is your Fedora thing missing? Feel free to open a ticket on the Fedora Mindshare Committee Pagure repo to ask for an update.

Policy proposal: New Code of Conduct

The Fedora Council has been working with the Fedora Community Action and Impact Coordinator to update and improve Fedora’s Code of Conduct. This work began with Brian Exelbierd during his tenure as FCAIC and was then picked up by Marie Nordin at the start of 2020. The new draft of the Code of Conduct is more comprehensive than our current Code of Conduct and will be accompanied by a set of Clarifying Statements. The Clarifying Statements are a work in progress.
