we're supposed to have a regular meeting today. Unfortunately, I'm very
busy this week and I have to finish something today, so I'm not sure if
I can make it to the meeting today.
Is here anyone who'd volunteer to chair the meeting in the case I don't
show up? There is a bunch of people who attend the meeting regularly and
know the drill, so I'm pretty sure we have good candidates.
You may have heard about Kevin Carillo's FLOSS community survey:
Fedora wasn't initially included in the list of projects for the survey,
but Kevin very kindly offered to add Fedora to the list. However, the
survey closes this Friday, and when I spoke with Kevin last week there
were 0 respondents for Fedora. :( He suggested that we advertise it a
bit more in the community to find some respondents.
So, I could use your help in getting the word out about the survey. The
basics are this:
- The survey is aimed at new contributors, who have started contributing
no earlier than January 2010.
- The survey is anonymous.
- The survey is run on open source software (Lime Survey) and all of the
(anonymized) data will be published under an open license and the
research results will also be published openly.
If you are close to a new Fedora contributor, would you mind telling
them about this survey? If you have time, could you help blog to Planet
Fedora about it?
Thanks for any help you can provide, folks!!

Please join us for our weekly FAmNA meeting this Tuesday at 9:00pm
Eastern in #fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.net.
I'd like to remind everyone that it is important for us to get some work
accomplished at these meetings and staying on the topic is important
to that end. All comments are welcome from ambassadors during the
meetings but please wait until the Open Floor to add any subject
matter not included in the meeting agenda via a ticket.
Feel free to add to the agenda. The easy way to add an agenda item is
described at the bottom of this announcement. Especially if you have
an event coming up that needs some attention.
This week's meeting leader: Jon Disnard
== Meeting Agenda ==
=== Announcements ===
Time for brief announcements.
=== Orientation Topics ===
After giving this some thought I have concluded there is way too much
material for one meeting so we'll add one or two topics each week
until we have everything covered. Please add topics or suggest future
topics for us to cover.
=== Tickets ===
Tickets scheduled for discussion at this meeting can be found at
Please read through each ticket in advance so you can be prepared to
discuss them at the meeting.
=== Select Next Meeting Leader ===
=== Open Floor ===
Unscheduled topics can be raised during the open floor if time
permits. Discussion of any topic will generally be more productive if
participants know about the topics in advance and have some time to
think about them, so please add your topics to the meeting agenda in
the ticket system when possible.
If you would like to add a topic for discussion at our meetings please
open a ticket at
and set its milestone to meeting.
I propose a simple web-FAD to clean up the package maintainer's
wishlist. It shouldn't really take up more than an hour if we have a
few people working on this.
Q. What is the wishlist?
A. It's a list of packages that fedora users would like to see in the
fedora repositories. Unfortunately, the list is not well maintained and
thus, gives inaccurate information to package maintainers.
Q. Benefits of the clean up?
A. Package maintainers will benefit from a well maintained wish-list.
It's a good place to direct prospective package maintainers too, when
they're looking for packages to get started with.
Q. How much time will it take?
A. Maybe an hour and a half, two at the most.
Q. What do I need to carry?
A. A connection to the interweb, a web browser, IRC client. Optional but
recommended: Pizza, bacon, coffee, beer, $food, $music.
Q. Why APAC specific?
A. Folks from one region are more likely to be available at a certain
time. Any one interested is more than welcome to join in, as always. :)
Q. What do I need to know?
A. Reading/writing/wiki editing. Use of package manager tools, bugzilla,
packagedb. Should have FAS account to be able to edit wiki.
Q. What do I need to do?
A. Simple workflow:
- Pick up a package listed in the wishlist
- Check if it is already packaged, or if a review ticket has already
been filed on bugzilla
- Modify wiki page accordingly.
Q. What can I learn during this FAD?
A. Using yum/$package_manager; using bugzilla; package maintainers
process; meet people, get to know your community folks, above all, *have
Q. Future plans?
A. See if anyone would like to take over the responsibility of
maintaining the wish list. We could even repeat the FAD every month or
I haven't thought of a time yet. APAC folks, are you up for it? Please
reply with a date and time that is convenient to you. Sometime this
week, Wednesday/Thursday would be nice.
Please forward the e-mail to other APAC regional mailing lists. I'm
cc'ing the Join and India lists.
Please only print if necessary.

Does Fedora or Red Hat have any plans to have some kind of exhibit for CES
I missed the free registration, but I'll be attending anyway.
I think it would be good to have an exhibit there.
