Great to hear that!!
I'm open to change the meetings to any day/date people find it suitable,
however, best way to push things is to start with them and not just talk
See you there tomorrow!

As some of you might have heard, I've been AFK due personal reasons, yet,
we are back on business. I need to thank you all for your understanding and
In order to retrieve some of the lost time, I've moved the meeting for
tomorrow at 12:30UTC  at the #Fedora-diversity channel.
I would like to discuss the ideas already proposed, hear about yours and
make plans to kickstart the efforts into making everyone feel comfortable
within our community. Some of the topics we will discuss are:
* Diversity Survey (we already have some ideas for the questions that we
would like to discuss)
* Reports (mostly based on our current contributors - how and when to
* Inclusion programs (please, if you are part of one or know some, don't
forget to step by)
* Your ideas!!!
Everyone is invited, hope to see you all there!

This weekend, FAmNA will be present at BrickHack 2016, a hackathon event
at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Western New York. There's a
new post on the Community Blog announcing our presence here this weekend.
Feel free to read over it and share it on your own social media feeds! A
little extra noise could definitely help. Thanks all!
Justin W. Flory
as Matthew announced at DevConf.cz our primary marketing focus for this
year are Python developers.
In EMEA, we've reacted and increased the number of Python events in the
list of planned events (several PyCons, planning to be at EuroPython
again...), but I realized we're not ready for that at all, or at least
I'm not aware of anything.
We have no marketing materials. Miro created a "Fedora loves Python"
sticker for Python CZ, but that's all we have in EMEA. Today, we were
offered an opportunity to add our swag in conference bags at PyCon SK,
but we don't have anything usable. Something like a flyer that explains
why Fedora is the right system for a Python developer would be great.
And it's not only about marketing materials, ambassadors should get
instructions what to show Python developers, so that it won't end up
like showcasing a la "hey, Fedora is cool, it has Firefox,
LibreOffice,... and look it has windows just like Windows or Mac". So
we would definitely need at least some talking points.
Is it something that is already being worked on or we have to start it?
If we spend a sizable amount of money to send people to Python
conferences, we should get maximum out of it.
After working for the past couple of weeks with the websites and
infrastructure teams, I'm pleased to share with you all
Thank you nb, robyduck, nirik, puiterwijk, and threebean for your patience
and mentorship :)
So now, budget stakeholders and leaders (Ambassadors, Council, and FAmSCo)
you can visit the site and provide feedback and input.
The actual budget numbers for this year ARE NOT ACTUALLY ZERO, so don't
panic or anything, they just haven't been reported yet ;) When they are, I
will update the website accordingly.
Contributing to Budget.fp.o
If you would like to help work on the budget site itself (PR's are
certainly welcome) please join #fedora-websites on Freenode and talk to the
team there first. The team is transitioning where our repositories are
hosted, and are making some changes to the fedora-web workflow (while
branching for F24-alpha.) In the future, you should be able to clone the
source for the budget site (and the other Fedora Websites) at
https://pagure.io/fedora-websites. ***WARNING*** Since our production
environment is built from the master branch, be sure to be working in an
alternate branch (git branch budget, for example) Starting now, you can
file tickets for the budget site on the Fedora-websites repo on pagure:
Budget Tracking -- Still a Regional Responsibility
I will be relying on ambassadors to be tracking your expenditures (like you
always have) so I can be updating the budget numbers section on a quarterly
basis, with reimbursements depending on event reports from regional
delegates. I will help report your budgets on
http://budget.fedoraproject.org (coming soon), but it is still up to the
REGIONS to keep as budget is spent. The good news though, is that now you
have The Community Operations (CommOps) team here to help support
publishing event reports and gathering and reporting metrics.
Budget Data and Files
When there are working budget documents, data, and information fit for
public consumption, I have created a new repo for sharing such files at:
https://pagure.io/budget (it is mostly empty for now, but feel free to
start putting your proposed budgets there if you have them Ambassadors.)
There is in the plans (but not yet implemented) the idea that we can use
webhooks or other git-magic to have the budget numbers and contacts on
budget.fp.o update automatically based on the data in this repo, but that
will likely be a feature for v2.0. For now, I'm OK with starting manually
until we hammer out the details and settle on a process.
I would like to start adding all the Regional Delegate selections to our
staging instance in preparation for the site hitting production in the next
week or two, starting now. So, if your region has chosen delegates already,
you can respond here with their names and email addresses, and I will add
them to the site. Alternatively, you could also file tickets on the budget
repo in pagure, (or file pull requests updating your regional delegation's
.yaml file) and I will merge/close them as I update the site.
***The budget process is going to move quickly from here, so Ambassadors
please have your delegation choices sent to me, filed into tickets, or
included in a pull-request by Friday March 4th.***
Budget.next and The Future
I'm excited to help Ambassadors and Project Leadership bring more
transparency to the budget process--one of my core charters as the first
ever Fedora Community Lead. I am hopeful we can develop a process that will
improve reimbursement turn-around, while creating metrics on action and
impact we can use to strategically adjust and improve our financial
situation in the future.
P.S. - I've cc'd a number of public lists in this email, so take special
care when replying to this post.
