Community Outreach Revamp Update #5

In the winter months, the Community Outreach Revamp team conducted a survey. We set ourselves to host, curate and report back our results, with some interesting conclusions. Furthering on the same train of thought, we are working with the Fedora Council and Mindshare Committee on community-oriented questions for an annual contributor survey. We hope to receive a greater and more diverse set of responses as the annual contributor survey will be targeted toward Fedora’s entire contributor community, not just Mindshare and Outreach teams.

Community Survey Results Summary

As a part of the Community Outreach Revamp the Objective co-leads, Mariana (marianab) and Sumantro (sumantrom) along with FCIAC, Marie Nordin (riecatnor), tried to capture the “bright spots” of what motivated the engagement of Fedora Ambassadors. The team approached the situation by developing a set of questions and implementing a community survey.

The idea was to primarily capture:

  • Why people do outreach for Fedora
  • How people participate in outreach currently
  • What do people want to be doing for outreach

The community survey received over 40 complete responses (over 100 incomplete) and the results we found provided some interesting and clear insights for the Revamp. The co-leads, FCAIC, along with Vipul (siddharthvipul1), Ashlyn (lilyx), Alberto (bt0dotninja) and Sayak (sayak), spent several meetings analyzing the responses question by question.

Test Week: Internationalization (i18n) features for Fedora 34

All this week, we will be testing internationalization (i18n) features in Fedora 34. Those are as follows:

  • kasumi-unicode: — kasumi-unicode will be generated newly with kasumi.spec in kasumi project.
  • ibus-anthy for default Japanese IME:— The current default Japanese IME(input method engine) is ibus-kkc and the default is going to change to ibus-anthy to develop Japanese IME more effectively.
  • ibus-m17n as default Sinhala IME :— The current default input method for Sinhala is ibus-sayura. This should change to the ibus-m17n input method “m17n:si:sayura – sayura (m17n)”
