Thanks, updated https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWD_Pune .
 The speaker and attendee list to be moved
to Wiki from the etherpad.
 The new contributors and speakers can
also join the Fedora telegram group, since not all of us
are big IRC fans.
 The organizers are also suggested to
do more social media posts about the event, so as to
create more awareness around this event.
 The organizers are suggested to try
reach out to college students (not just via emails
or messages, but by physically going down to
colleges) since this event can be a good place for
new contributors to know how to get started with
their contribution as well as meet other existing
and experienced community members.
 The new speakers can try and do
some actual contributions before the FWD event so
that they can also share their experience (and
blockers) at the event. They could also join the
upcoming Fedora monthly meetup and release party,
planned on 9th July, at Pune.
A few of the local Fedora ambassadors and event
organizers for FWD Pune event met this morning
for a quick discussion on the proposed event and
here we have the meeting notes for everyone:
 Apologies that this part wasn't well explained
previously but the list of talks that you see on
the pirate pad, mainly under the 'Getting Started with your Fedora
contribution' section are going to
be flash talks for 5 mins each. Since we
couldn't find existing female contributors in
all of these different contribution pathways, to
share their experience with us; a group of
volunteers decided to try finding out details
about these different contribution pathways, how
to get started, the related IRC channels and
mailing lists for each and finally give a 5 min
presentation about their findings. This can save
the rest of the audience's effort to do a
complete research on the different contribution
pathways (which is often the first barrier in
contribution) and they should have most of the
data at hand to now go back and start
contributing. The FWD event was also thought of
as a first step to initiating a consistent women
contributor community, where each month we could
take up one of these contribution pathways and
make it as the flavor of the month...doing some
actual hands-on contribution together for that
chosen project or pathway. This can probably
even be clubbed with the monthly Fedora meetups
that we have in Pune. That ofcourse can be
discussed in more details with the local
If anyone has any further questions on any of the
above points or any suggestions for the event in general,
please do feel free to shoot a response to this thread.
I hope I have covered all the points that was
discussed in today's meeting. If not, today's meeting
attendees, please add those points to the thread here.
