Robert added concerning the communities issue.
At the end of 2010, the Fedora board decided to agree on "strategic
goals" for Fedora, so they can focus their work in 2011. When we looked
back at what had happened with these goals one year later at FUDCon
Blacksburg, we realized that hardly anything wa up with so far:
1. Improve budget management: We want to make payments for our
contributors easier and faster. Budget needs to be more
transparent. We want to move decisions from FAmSCo to the local
communities. Reporting for credit card holders needs to become
easier. We are working on all this for a while already but
hardly made any progress, because there are big changes inside
of Red Hat. It is unclear who will manage our budget in the
future and we don't even have exact figures of our spending in
the last year. So as soon as there is some progress, we can
start working on this. We already set up a new trac instance
Would be nice!
2. Improve the elections: I have been spending a lot of work on
new FAmSCo election guidelines and I want to continue with this
because I think there is still a lot to be improved. Even if we
have the best guidelines ever, we can improve, participation ,
documentation and the process. My goal is to have one simple and
streamlined election process for the whole Fedora project.
3. Solve conflicts about local communities: As FAmSCo chair, I
received a lot of mails about conflicts in various local
communities. I was asked to make a decision, but frankly
speaking I cannot. I am willing to help and to act as a
middlemen, but it is not on me to decide who gets a certain
domain or not. Instead of solving these conflicts one by one it
is better to think about how we want to deal with them. Maybe
the Fedora community working group can help? I don't know, but I
continue to work on it.
I have been involved with this for months. Actually for ID and IT, as I am
maintainer of fcomm.org
Robert is working on a proposal.
It is involving RH legal also for domain names.
We already are a "working group" :-) Nice to see you here ;-)
If you like my ideas, I would appreciate your help. If you don't
them, I am looking forward to your feedback. And if you have more ideas
how to make the Fedora community a better place, lets discuss them.
