Community Outreach Revamp Update

In the winter months, the Community Outreach Revamp team conducted a survey. We set ourselves to host, curate and report back our results, with some interesting conclusions. Furthering on the same train of thought, we are working with the Fedora Council and Mindshare Committee on community-oriented questions for an annual contributor survey. We hope to receive a greater and more diverse set of responses as the annual contributor survey will be targeted toward Fedora’s entire contributor community, not just Mindshare and Outreach teams.

Fedora Community Outreach Revamp Update #4

We launched the Community Outreach Revamp in July of 2020. The goal of the Revamp is to identify what makes Fedora’s Outreach teams struggle, create a clear plan to move forward based on community feedback, and execute that plan. All of these efforts focus on creating a cohesive, sustainable, and empowering Outreach program for Fedora.

As of January 2021 the Revamp is now a Fedora Objective! With the Fedora Council approving the objective after community feedback, the Revamp becomes a medium-term goal of the Council. The co-leads of the Revamp, Mariana Balla and Sumantro Mukherjee, are Council members through the completion of the objective. We will provide updates on the Community Outreach Revamp at the regular Council meetings. More details about the Community Outreach Revamp as an Objective can be found on the wiki page.

On Saturday, 20 February 2021, we will give a talk on the Community Outreach Revamp during the DevConf.CZ conference. The co-leads, as well as Marie Nordin (FCAIC), will share the vision of the Revamp, the progress that has been made so far together with some very interesting findings, and what the expectations are upon the completion of this initiative. Join us to find out more and to ask your questions on Saturday from 2:00pm to 2:25pm CET. This session is part of the Fedora track sessions.

Community Outreach Revamp Objective

In June of 2020 the Community Outreach Revamp was developed. The initial plan was drafted by Marie Nordin and then edited and approved by the Mindshare Committee. Implementation began soon after by co-leads Mariana Balla and Sumantro Mukherjee. It quickly became evident that the Revamp is of monumental proportions and will take a lot of coordination, people, and hours to complete. Although Fedora rarely has non-code related Objectives, the Revamp falls under similar work-load category to other Objectives and is crucial to the future of Fedora’s community outreach.

Fedora Council November 2020 meeting

As usual, the Fedora Council held an annual strategy meeting last month. And as usual for 2020, we had to conduct it virtually. Instead of meeting somewhere in person for a few packed days, we decided to split it into several half days over a few weeks.  Ben Cotton, the apparently untiring Fedora Program Manager (FPgM), already published the minutes through Zodbot. In this post, I’ll cover some of the discussion in more detail.

Fedora Council August 2020 meeting

Every year in the days before Flock, the Fedora Council holds a face-to-face meeting. We had expected to do this in Detroit this year, but… you know… COVID. Instead, we held a virtual face-to-face over two half-days. Unlike in past meetings, there was little Big New Idea discussion to have. Instead, this meeting focused on catching up on work in progress. Minutes are available in the Zodbot archives.

Fedora Council January 2020 in-person meeting

The Fedora Council stuck around Brno the day after DevConf.CZ to have a day-long working session. This is part of our newly-adopted regular cadence of in-person meetings. We mostly used this day to follow up on some items from the November meeting, including the vision statement.

Fedora Council November 2019 meeting: Councily business

This is part two of a four-part series recapping the Fedora Council’s face-to-face meeting in November 2019.

In addition to the big topic of the Fedora Project Vision, we used the opportunity to cover some other Fedora Council business. Because it’s a lot, we’re breaking the reporting on this into two posts, kind of arbitrarily — here’s the first of those.

Extending the Minimization objective

Earlier this summer, the Fedora Council approved the first phase of the Minimization objective. Minimization looks at package dependencies and tries to minimize the footprint for a variety of use cases. The first phase resulted in the development of a feedback pipeline, a better understanding of the problem space, and some initial ideas for policy improvements.

Phase two is now submitted to the Council for approval. In this phase, the team will select specific use cases to target and work to develop a minimized set of packages for them. You can read the updated objective in pull request #64. Please provide feedback there or on the council-discuss mailing list. The Council will vote on this in two weeks.

Renewing the Modularity objective

Now that Modularity is available for all Fedora variants, it’s time to address issues discovered and improve the experience for packagers and users. The Modularity team identified a number of projects that will improve the usefulness of Modularity and the experience of creating modules for packagers. We are proposing a renewed objective to the Fedora Council.

You can read the updated objective in pull request #61. Please provide feedback there or on the devel mailing list. The Council will vote on this in two weeks.
