Fedora Contributor Annual Survey Data Set Available

Over the summer of 2021, the Fedora Council held the first annual Contributor Survey. The survey received 800 complete responses, which exceeded the goal of 500. We have processed the data, which are available for download.

Coordination of the survey was a wonderful community effort. Fedora Council member Aleksandra Fedorova proposed and led the survey effort with support from Marie Nordin (FCAIC). Many teams across the Fedora Project contributed, including: the Mindshare Committee, the Outreach Revamp Team, the Design Team, the Websites & Apps Team, and the Community Platform Engineering Team. Aleksandra and Marie presented a session at Nest with Fedora which goes further into the process and outcomes.

Upcoming Mindshare Committee Election: What to know

We released Fedora Linux 35 and that means it’s time for the elections for various governing bodies in Fedora. This includes the Mindshare Committee. One seat is open on the Committee this election to serve two release cycles (one year). We invite you to vote in the upcoming Mindshare Committee election, and even run for the seat if you are inspired! Participating on the Mindshare Committee takes 1-3 hours weekly, as well as the expectation that you will attend any face-to-faces (virtual or in-person) if possible. This is an opportunity to support the Fedora Project in an organizational capacity, and you don’t need a lot of experience. Each Fedoran’s perspective is valuable to the work that Mindshare does. We would love to have you be a part of the Committee.

Fedora Stories: Fedora Week of Diversity is here!

Fedora’s Diversity & Inclusion Team determined in the spring of 2021 at a virtual meetup to evolve our yearly “Fedora Women’s Day” event to the “Fedora Week of Diversity”. Fedora Week of Diversity runs October 3–9th and features a series of interviews with community members telling their Fedora stories. We also started a Recommended Resources page in the D&I Team Docs that we will continue to improve upon. Last, but not least, we (finally) published the videos from Fedora Women’s Day 2020 to the Fedora YouTube channel. This week will be full of highlights from this content to showcase Fedora’s diversity!

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!
