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.

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.

Nest with Fedora: 2021 Edition

Hello Fedora Friends! Phew, it’s been over a year of living with COVID and everything that has gone with it. Although living in a pandemic has been stressful (to say the least), Fedora has thrived through this time, and we have been connecting more than ever. So it is with mixed emotions that I am announcing that our yearly contributor conference will be virtual: Nest with Fedora 2021 edition.

Fedora Code of Conduct Report 2020

The Fedora Project’s Code of Conduct and reports are managed by the Fedora Project Leader (FPL), Matthew Miller, and the Fedora Community Action and Impact Coordinator (FCAIC), Marie Nordin, as well as the Red Hat legal team, when appropriate.

In 2020 we had more than two times the number of CoC reports when compared to 2019. Due to dedicating a lot of time and effort to these situations, we spent a significant amount of time trying to understand why this was happening at these rates. We came up with a couple of theories.

Community Outreach Revamp Objective

In June of 2020 the Community Outreach Revamp was developed. The initial plan was drafted by Marie Nordin and then edited and approved by the Mindshare Committee. Implementation began soon after by co-leads Mariana Balla and Sumantro Mukherjee. It quickly became evident that the Revamp is of monumental proportions and will take a lot of coordination, people, and hours to complete. Although Fedora rarely has non-code related Objectives, the Revamp falls under similar work-load category to other Objectives and is crucial to the future of Fedora’s community outreach.
