The Fedora Diversity FAD (a.k.a. Fedora Activity Day, or a sprint) took place during the weekend of DevConf, 27-29 January. The original planning for this FAD started in August 2016, after the Flock 2016 conference. At Flock, the Diversity Team held a panel with open discussion about diversity and inclusion efforts in Fedora. Based on the feedback received during and after the panel, it was a priority for us to continue working on the objectives we had established before Flock. For the FAD, a majority of the Fedora Diversity Team was present along with a few others.

We made significant progress in accomplishing our larger objectives and to contribute to the Fedora Project mission and goals. The primary objectives we established for our FAD were completing plans for the demographic survey, building a campaign based on those results, and analyzing our Code of Conduct to find ways to better impact the community. This report covers each of these objectives, what we accomplished, and what we plan to do next.

Fedora Activity Day, Bangalore 2017

The Fedora Activity Day (FAD) is a regional event (either one-day or multi-day) that allows Fedora contributors to gather together in order to work on specific tasks related to the Fedora Project.

FAD in Bangalore

On February 25th 2017, a FAD was conducted in one of the admirable university of Bangalore: University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE). It was not a typical “hackathon” or “DocSprint” but a series of productive and interactive sessions on different tools.

Fedora Cloud FAD 2016 Report

The Fedora Cloud Working Group met on June 7 and 8 in Raleigh to work on deliverables for Fedora 25 and beyond. As it turns out, we had a really productive set of discussions and have some good ideas for the Cloud Working Group going forward.

Some of the discussions were around immediate action items, some were around ideas of where we’d like to go – and these will require additional discussion with the larger community. As a reminder, the working group tries to operate on a consensus model and with transparency as much as possible. This means major decisions are usually only taken after a discussion has been held on the cloud@lists.fedoraproject.org mailing list and have either gotten enough +1’s from members to pass, pass via lazy consensus, or get knocked down for one reason or another.

Here’s a quick sweep of major topics that came up over the two days!

Fedora Docs FAD 2016 Badge

The Documentation Fedora Activity Day held this past weekend in Raleigh, NC had an impressive collection of stakeholders across the Fedora, Red Hat and CentOS projects. It was certainly not your typical “hackathon” or “DocSprint.” There was much productive discussion, tools vetting, future planning, AND development.

Fedora and Mozilla Activity Days in Prishtina, Kosovo

As part of Open Labs Hackerspace, I was invited to Prishtina, Kosovo by fellow hacktivist Ardian Haxha. I was asked to facilitate various sessions about Fedora and Mozilla. Furthermore, I was happy to design the artwork for the event too. This greatly aligned with my work at Mozilla Community Design and the Fedora Design Team. Ardian is a hard-working community member of FLOSSK. He was heavily involved in the organization of the past SFK conferences in the same city of Prishtina. He recently rediscovered the pleasure of working with the Fedora and Mozilla communities again, so he decided to organize the Fedora and Mozilla Activity Days in Prishtina on the 26th to 27th of March.

We already had a number of blog posts regarding how Globalization (G11n) Fedora Activity Days (FADs) went. After all of these reports, it makes sense to have one post discussing the achievements from our Activity Days.

Python 3 Porting FAD: “We’ve done a lot of things…”

This article originally appeared on contributor Matej Stuchlik’s personal blog.

The Awesome

The Python 3 Porting Fedora Activity Day wrapped up this Sunday. In the span of ~48 hours and three continents, we’ve done a lot of things:

  • 32 people had made 126 commits to the portingdb, with 3,803 additions and 3,226 deletions, making the portingdb more useful for everyone.
  • We’ve filled numerous bugs for Fedora packages that lack Python 3 support, providing an updated .spec file for 9 of them.
  • Best of all, 7 upstreams received Python 3 compatibility patches!

This all with the help of people from around the world, from all sorts of distros, cooperating on-line and off.

I’d like to thank frafra, michel-slm, fujimotos, michaeleekk, rodrigc, barracks510, fitoria, rupe120, decause, sayanchowdhury, Richard Sarkis, Sebastian Dyroff, Fale, dperson, fabaff, Riamse, carlwgeorge, MSK61, jflory7, mayorgatellez, staranjeet, QuLogic, hroncok, booxter, tyll, pigjuliux, williamjmorenor for making this awesome, and abadger, threebean and encukou for handling all the awesomeness. 🙂

What’s next?

One thing is for sure, this isn’t the last Python 3 Porting day! It’s been a lot of fun and we’ve learned a lot, so we would like to have another P3P Day in a month or two. Be sure to tweet at me, or join the #fedora-python channel on Freenode, if you have any suggestion on how to make it even better than it was. 🙂
