Teaching metrics and contributor docs at Flock 2017

The Fedora Community Operations (CommOps) team held an interactive workshop during the annual Fedora contributor conference, Flock. Flock took place from August 29th to September 1st in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Justin W. Flory and Sachin Kamath represented the team in the workshop. CommOps spends a lot of time working with metrics and data tools available in Fedora, like fedmsg and datagrepper. Our workshop introduced some of the tools to work with metrics in Fedora and how to use them. With our leftover time, we discussed the role of contributor-focused documentation in the wiki and moving it to a more static place in Fedora documentation.

January 2017 Elections Retrospective Report

In this election cycle, the voter turnout is above its average level. It is great news as it shows increased interest of the Fedora people in community affairs.

This election cycle was hit by some planning issues as we were running the Elections over Christmas 2016 period. At the beginning I was worrying about the turnout due to the Christmas, but fortunately this was odd and we are more than good from this point of view.

You’re invited: FOSCo Brainstorm Meeting, 2016-07-18, 13:00 UTC

For some time now, Fedora has discussed the idea of the Fedora Outreach Steering Committee (FOSCo), a body to coordinate all our outreach efforts. Now it’s time to make it happen!

FOSCo brainstorming: you’re invited!

On behalf of FAmSCo and the Fedora Council, we would like to invite the Fedora community to an all-hands.

Roll call

So far, the following participants have confirmed attendance.

The fact that we already have a good team of volunteers should not stop you from attending. In fact, we would like to hear more voices from all stakeholders. The more, the better! To get an idea what FAmSCo has been working on so far, please have a look at the wiki page and current status.

None of this is set in stone yet, and we feel we need your input before we go any further. We are looking forward to your comments and to meet you next Monday!

Fedora CommBlog Keeps it 100

Shout-out to all the Fedora CommBlog Contributors who have helped us surpass the ? posts milestone!

“I contributed!” 2015 Gource Video Series (3/3)

I contributed!” is a special series on the Fedora Community Blog which helps Fedora contributors understand and get a feel of the activity happening in different areas in Fedora, especially areas other than what they personally participate in. These visualizations for 2015 are made using Gource videos generated by threebean using fedmsg2gource – a CLI tool used to generate Gource videos from fedmsg history,

In this third and final part of the series, we present some subsystem videos which produced interesting patterns in Gource visualizations.

To help better understand what these videos represent as well as to learn more about Gource and fedmsg2gource, check out the earlier articles in the “I contributed!” Gource series here and here.

FOSDEM 2016: Event Report

FOSDEM 2016: Event ReportOrganizing the #DistroDevRoom

 

As a longtime FOSS advocate and conference-goer, I have woefully from afar followed the press and event coverage after FOSDEM for many years, wishing on my lucky stars that someday, I too might be able to attend this premier FOSS event in Europe. And this year, finally, I got the opportunity to not only attend, but to help organize the Distributions DevRoom. Devrooms are a sort of mini-track within the larger conference, and ours focused on the common problems that Linux distributions, packagers, and other developers working at grand-scale community collaboration have to face.
