Say thank you this November during Fedora Appreciation Week 2018

Fedora Appreciation Week is a new event this year organized by the Fedora Community Operations (CommOps) team. Fedora Appreciation Week, abbreviated as FAW, is a week-long event to celebrate the efforts of Fedora Project contributors and to say “thank you” to each other. Fedora Appreciation Week begins Monday, November 5, 2018 and runs until Sunday, November 11, 2018.

What is it?

The Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day inspired the CommOps team to organize a similar event of appreciation for contributors who make Fedora what it is. This includes all types of contributors, from development, design, infrastructure, marketing, engineering, and more.

During this time of appreciation, users and contributors alike are highly encouraged to select either an individual or a group of contributors to thank for their efforts in Fedora. Appreciation can be given as a karma cookie in IRC, a short note of thanks on a mailing list, or a longer form appreciation such as a Fedora Happiness Packet.

This year’s Fedora Appreciation Week will occur during the 15th anniversary of the Fedora Project on November 6, 2018.
