Mindshare Monthly Report – FAD and First Actions

Establishing the Committee

The Mindshare Committee is officially established.

The Fedora Mindshare Committee represents the outreach leadership in Fedora. Mindshare aims to help outreach teams to work together better by providing them with a way to unify around Fedora’s messaging and work together to achieve goals.

We had a FAD where we we met to discuss how the committee is going to work and to discuss the initial issues we had on our hands. We did a little recap of good things and challenges:

Good:

  1. Events: Ambassadors organizing minor events and presenting at main events
  2. Budget process: Mostly working in part to a dedicated role in Fedora
  3. Design & Web: Two teams collaborating together and offering a good user experience and a model for collaboration
  4. Marketing: Fedora Magazine and generating talking points
  5. Docs: We have Docs, but at Flock when this was originally presented, the team was small; Docs FAD was last week and may impact this

Challenges:

  1. Communication: Missing effective communication between teams
  2. Best practices: Not shared between teams, some teams have efficient processes that could be used by others
  3. Reporting: The events we attend are not informing the project and helping us set direction
  4. Marketing: Disconnected from other teams and its messages need to drive outreach teams again
  5. Local communities: Strong interest from local communities but support is not in place to help engage and include them in the project

Having this list in our hands, we started a discussion, about the topics, our challenges and taking advantage of our good points. The first thing we did was create a list of objectives:

  1. Improving communication between teams
  2. Better collaboration and sharing of best practices between teams
  3. Supporting management of budget for impact
  4. More informed event planning with inputs from several groups

Fedora Autumn Elections 2017

As Fedora 27 has already been released, we run Fedora Autumn Elections 2017 electing members to three main leadership groups in Fedora: the Fedora Council, the Fedora Mindshare Committee, and the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo).

The Fedora Council is the top-level community leadership and governance body. The Council is a mix of representatives from different areas of the project, named roles appointed by Red Hat, and a variable number of seats connected to medium-term project goals. Decision-making is a consensus process, where the Council works together as a common team to find shared solutions and address concerns, with a focus on giving voice than on balance of power.

Additionally, the Fedora Mindshare Comittee represents the outreach leadership in Fedora. Mindshare aims to help outreach teams to reach their targets in a more effective way, by unifying and sharing their working process through an optimized and standardized communication. It consists of mostly appointed, but also elected members.

Lastly, the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee, or FESCo, provides technical leadership and guidance in Fedora. Furthermore, FESCo handles the process of accepting new features, accepting new packaging sponsors, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and SIG Oversight, the packaging process, handling and enforcement of maintainer issues and other technical matters related to the distribution and its construction. All of the FESCo seats are also elected by the community.

What I have found interesting in Fedora during the week 43 of 2017

My highlights from the past week:

Fedora 27 Server Beta & Fedora 27 Final are No-Go

On Thursday we met together with representatives of QA, FESCo, Release Engineering and few more people on so called Go/No-Go meeting. The goal was to determine whether the Fedora 27 Server Beta as well as Fedora 27 Final are ready to be released. Unfortunately we had to come up with conclusion that nor Fedora 27 Server Beta , nor Fedora 27 Final are ready to be released. We are going to meet once more on this Thursday, November 2nd, to revisit the status of these releases.
