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.
Yesterday, taking advantage of the post-New Year enthusiasm of our dear Fedora Project Leader, I enabled a WordPress plugin that connects this blog with the Discourse forum at discussion.fedoraproject.org. If everything works correctly, Community Blog posts will start a new thread in the Community Blog category on Discussion. Discussion will function as the comments mechanism for the post instead of the native WordPress comments.
If it doesn’t work correctly, well…let us know. Matthew and I are figuring this out as we go, so it’s possible that not everything was configured correctly. Let’s give it a try and see what happens!
