OK Remy Afew questions 1) on your .next page it has quarterly reports are those reported by the regions or by Redhat or both
2) it lists Quarterly Budgets, so if we are under budget on one quarter do we keep that money or (use it or lose it) is it lost?
Date: Wed, 4 Nov 2015 23:35:35 -0500 From: Remy DeCausemaker <email@example.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Discussions with the Fedora Council and community <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: [Ambassadors] Fedora Budget.next - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Budget.next Message-ID: <CALiMsejHV-JvD+h+chLBsXfmxquy-J5Gt8Mn3X9JCWie4FKLMw@mail.gmail.com> Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8" Ambassadors, As some of you may be aware, there have been some changes to how Budget is proposed and allocated for the coming fiscal year. This conversation has been happening on the Council-discuss list, and through meetings with members of the OSAS team: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/council-discuss/2015-October/013742.html With input from the council, OSAS, and other Ambassador Leads, I've taken the results of these budget meetings up until this point, and the discussions around FOSCo/FAMSCo, and created a wiki page to help explain our best understanding of how things should work going forward. The policy seen here is a blend of the results from public discussions and meetings over the past year on mailing lists, in IRC, and at FLOCK: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Budget.next *tl;dr* - We're proposing 3 delegated roles in each ambassadorial region for treasurer, logistics, and storytelling. We're keeping our reimbursement and other policies as close to the same as possible. There is a now quarterly budget timeline with scheduled FADs and planning. There will be a webpage available in the near-ish future at http://budget.fedoraproject.org where folks can find the budget and policies related to it. This is not a permanent, set-in-stone policy, but we need to start somewhere, beginning with the new budget year (FY17) and the next Fedora Release (F24.) We can always come back and tinker and change what is on that wiki page, but for now, this is what we'd like to propose to close the loop on budget. Please read the wiki page, as the daemon is always in the details, and we can use as much informed input and feedback as we can get. I'm hoping to spend about a week gathering feedback, and then move forward implementing these new budget processes together with all of you Thank you Ambassador Leads and fellow council members for your early input and efforts on this. Your feedback helped to round off some of the rough corners, and provided a consistent reminder to adhere to the Fedora-way of defaulting to open. This formalized regional approach to budget is the first step in working out a larger community-wide strategy around integrating subprojects and other Fedora constituencies with eachother--but that will be a whole nother conversation after this one. Looking Forward, --RemyD. -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...
