Call for Papers for Flock to Fedora 2018
Flock is the Fedora Project's annual contributor-focused conference. It
alternates between European and North American locations, and this year
will be in Dresden, Germany from August 8-11.
What will we do at Flock?
* Communicate the Fedora Strategy. Everyone in Fedora should understand and
feel well-aligned with the project's goals, both long-term and tactical. We
should all understand the messaging we're using to attract new users and
* Plan the Next Strategy. This strategy doesn't come from the top down, or
from thin air, and it's not dictated by our sponsors. It comes from the
community. Because we're so big and distributed, Flock can't be the only
place where we get new ideas, but it is a summit where we present, learn
about, and discuss them.
* Build Community Connections and Engagement. We do amazing work as a
global project, but there's no substitute for direct human interaction.
Flock helps tie us together. In-person discussion, collaboration, and fun
social events help us function better on IRC and mailing lists throughout
