recently FAmSCo has agreed that a new governance body should be created
to better reflect the current changes in the Project and to meet today's
needs. The new body should replace FAmSCo, and extend its scope to other
outreach teams such as the design and marketing teams.
We've also agreed that it doesn't make much sense to organize elections
to a body that is going to cease to exist in a couple of months and
we're asking the Council as a higher authority to extend our mandate
till F22 , so that we have enough time to figure out a new governance
model for the outreach part of the Project and finish the transition
from FAmSCo to the new body (FOSCo). New elections should be organized
to the new body after F22 when everything is set.
You can participate in the discussion about what the new body should
look like in the ticket .

Hi everyone! I wanted to refresh Jiri's post (forwarded below), and
also (and this is why it's a new thread) broaden the discussion to be
a little more global. I've talked casually about this in the past here
and (more) with various people in person, but I think it's time to
start putting thoughts into actions. :)
I'd really like us to have some big-picture thinking around events we
spend money on this year. I think there are three primary groupings of
1. Flagship Linux/Open Source events where we maintain a presence in
the wider community. This are the big-name events -- LinuxCon,
FOSDEM, whatever, where everyone is there and we should be too. It's
an audience that already knows about Fedora at a high level, but is
a place were we should also show off new and cool things we're
We don't necessarily need to hit every one of these, but we _should_
be at some. Which events are these?
(It'd be great to have people speaking at these, too, and a lot of them
take non-technical community talks, so speaking doesn't just need to
be a developer thing.)
2. Places we don't normally go, specifically focused on Server,
Workstation, and Cloud. We should showcase Fedora Server in sysadmin
conferences — LISA is one, and I hear that LinuxCon EU is also
sysadmin-heavy. And we should get Fedora Workstation into developer
conferences that we don't normally pay attention to because they're
not Linux focused. (What are these? Where are they?) And we should
get Fedora Cloud into conferences where people are into new scale
out methods of application deployment and cloud computing in
3. Small grassroots LUG, community, and expo events. These don't have a
lot of global impact, but put together, they can have cumulative
grassroots effect. These are primarily centered around individual
ambassadors and their interests and local community — how can we
best support that? What's the right balance with the other things?
For each of these, we should not just _go_, but have an intended impact
and message, and find a way to measure how successful that was, for
improving results next year (or deciding to go elsewhere).
What do you all think?

Fedora Project Leader
i am so happy to give my "audit trible plus" two day training just
upfront of this year nullcon security conference in Goa.
Because i do the training as part of my contribution to the FOSS Eco
System and not for commercial reasons - and because Fedora covers some
of my travel costs, i got the opportunity to register 3 more Fedora
Community Members for free to get access to the conference, including
the amenities like the Lunch/Tea-Coffee, nullcon networking party etc....
on the 06 and the 07th Feb 2015 see http://nullcon.net/website
PJP already joined me in 2012 - and it was a really nice opportunity to
meet and to spread Fedora! https://pjps.wordpress.com/tag/nullcon/
If you are an active Fedora Contributor from India and interested,
please open a request ticket in
and cc me(jsimon) and Tuan(Tuanta) there!
(Also include in the ticket if you need sponsoring for accommodation and
transport, if yes, please use the official APAC Fedora community
process. Because we do not have much time till the conference starts
this should be done asap in case you need it.)
Would be really nice to have a small Fedora gathering and to hack on the
