I just posted a kinda long message about marketing and ambassadors to
the Fedora Council discussion mailing list
I know not everyone on these lists is subscribed to every other one,
and rather than cross-posting and watching the discussion get
fragmented, I decided to post just in the one place. However, I'm
interested in all of your feedback, so I'm also cross-posting *this* a
bunch of places.
Don't respond here, please — instead, if you're interested in this kind
of thing, please join the Council list and followup there. Thanks!

It would be a pity if "Flock is a better FUDCon" because the corollary
is "FUDCon is a bad Flock". Instead of going down that zero-sum path,
it would worthwhile to have structured discussions around outreach and
how the project itself can accrue value by gaining more contributors
Organizing a FUDCon (like the PP) at a place with minimum contributor
presence without looking at a plan for a build-up to the main event
does make it capital intensive. Local speakers (who are absent) are
supplanted by speakers who have flown in. It may make for a good
event, but I would think it makes for a shaky foundation to sustained
growth. If large events like FUDCon are not creating enough impact,
what alternatives exist to ensure that there is growth. In fact, do we
know for sure that there is lack of growth? Can we look at what other
OpenSource projects are popular in the region and attempt to build
alliances? Do we do this already?
This Thursday, we will meet on irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting-2
to make sure we are coordinated and ready for the release of Fedora 23
on Tuesday, October 27, 2015.
Please note that this meeting will occur even if the release is
delayed at the Go/No-Go meeting on the same day two hours earlier.
The meeting is scheduled at 6PM (UTC). Please follow the [FedoCal]
link to find the time of the meeting in your time-zone.
You may received this message several times as this meeting is opened
to all teams. I also hope this will raise awareness and more team
representatives will come to this meeting. This meeting works best
when we have representatives from all of the teams.
Thanks for attending, Jan
