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 ambassadors.
 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.
 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 organizers are also suggested to do more social media posts
about the event, so as to create more awareness around this event.
 The new contributors and speakers can also join the Fedora
telegram group, since not all of us are big IRC fans.
 The speaker and attendee list to be moved to Wiki from the etherpad.
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.
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.
