CommOps takeaways from Flock 2018

The annual Fedora contributor conference, Flock, took place from August 8-11, 2018. Several members of the Community Operations (CommOps) team were present for the conference. We also held a half-day team sprint for team members and interested people to participate and share feedback with the team.

This blog post summarizes some of the high-level takeaways and next steps for CommOps based on the feedback we received.

What we talked about

Our team sprint was significant for planning future goals and milestones for CommOps. Our sprint was a hands-on session split between Fedora Appreciation Week planning and exploring new questions to answer in fedmsg metrics.

  • Fedora Appreciation Week
    • Revisited timeline, updated roadmap (see latest comments in #110)
    • First draft of new roadmap in Etherpad
  • Metrics, fedmsg, and data analysis
    • Grimoire dashboard delayed – but how can we start answering questions now with tools we have today?
    • Interactive activity to generate ideas on most valuable / interesting metrics to review
    • Tentative plan on how to start

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.

Happiness Packets and Fedora GSoC 2018

I was selected to work with Fedora on the Fedora Happiness Packets for GSoC 2018! A shout-out to Jona and Bee for helping me with the proposal and initial PRs!

About me

Hi there! My name is Anna. I go by the username Algogator on IRC and elsewhere.

  • I study computer science at the University of Texas at Arlington.
  • Python is my favorite language. Been using it for everything for the past 6 years.
  • Huge open source fan. I started a Firefox club at my university. Currently president of the Python user group at UTA (PyMavs).

What I’ll be working on and why

The Happiness Packets is an open source platform to spread gratitude and appreciation among contributors in the community. For Fedora Appreciation Week 2018, having a Fedora themed Happiness Packets site will encourage and make it easier for people to send positive feedback to their peers (anonymously if they like). I’ll be mainly working on integrating fedmsg (to award a Fedora Badge for sending a message) and adding authentication (for FAS) to the Django project. Read more about my work on Fedora Happiness Packets over the summer on my personal blog.

Introducing Contributor Stories

The Fedora Project community is a strong, caring community sharing the same Four Foundations: Freedom, Friends, Features, and First. Becoming friends is a natural consequence of our work as contributors, working together to advance free software. All of us have a good memory about someone or maybe a funny or inspirational moment with another contributor.

Contributor Stories are just that: the record of our best moments with our Fedora friends. The story can be about our work in Fedora or something personal or unique which you would like to share with the community. Contributor Stories are a part of Fedora Appreciation Week, starting in November 2018.

Why have Contributor Stories?

The purpose of Contributor Stories is to recognize a contributor who has impacted you at any time in Fedora. Let them know what you are thankful for and share a common memory or experience you remember. Taking the time to single out someone to give thanks is one of the best ways to make a personal impact.
