Commitment to community: Fedora CommOps FAD 2018

The Fedora Community Operations (CommOps) team held a team sprint, or Fedora Activity Day, from January 29-31, 2018. CommOps provides tools, resources, and utilities for different sub-projects of Fedora to improve effective communication. The FAD was an opportunity for us to further our mission by focusing on two primary goals and two secondary goals for 2018.

The CommOps FAD aimed to carry out these primary goals:

  • Pursue plan of deploying a GrimoireLabs dashboard, visualizing fedmsg data
  • Launch Fedora Appreciation Week in 2018

This article explains what we accomplished in our FAD, how we have progressed since then, and what is next for the team.

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 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.
