Getting more metrics: Fedora net promoter score survey
by Matthew Miller
Hey everyone! I happened by chance to meet someone at Red Hat who works on
Red Hat's Net Promoter Score program. NPS, if you're not familiar, is a
metric based on the simple question "How likely are you to recommend this?"
on a scale from 0-10.
I think this can be very useful, especially as tracked over time. And it
turns out that the group at Red Hat who does this would be happy to provide
this to Fedora as a service.
I'd like to make a link to this survey available on some of the various
Fedora websites. (Get Fedora, Fedora Magazine, Ask Fedora...)
We'll ask that basic question and a couple of followups like "Do you
participate in the Fedora community" and "What are your top challenges?"
(This is different from the demographic / contributor survey and won't ask
any of those sorts of questions.)
For, like, a hotel chain, you usually get this survey as an email to some
customer list. While we have email addresses of Fedora contributors, for
obvious reasons we aren't gonna be using those for this in bulk. I also
don't feel good about using the announce list — I will probably
include a link to the survey in future release announcements, but just
sending mail about the survey itself doesn't feel like what people signed up
to that list for.
I am thinking, though, of creating a "please survey me" mailing list that
people can opt-in to — if you sign up, we'll email you once every three
months or six months or so.
What do you think of this idea overall? We also have the option of creating
more specific surveys focused on an edition or spin, if your team would be
interested in such a thing.

Approval required: Weblate deployment
Dear council members,
in August 11th, I opened this issue:
https://pagure.io/Fedora-Council/tickets/issue/268 (Long term funding
request: translation platform hosting)
in September 4th, the issue was closed as validated.
1. we got a test from Weblate:
https://translate.stg.fedoraproject.org/stats/ where we got 63
contributors for 33 languages, doing over three thousands contributions.
2. The Weblate dev did the work to send events to fedora-messaging for
community monitoring https://pagure.io/fedora-infrastructure/issue/8291
3. The change proposal was validated:
4. We have a working internationalization system for our docs:
https://docs.stg.fedoraproject.org/fr/project/ with some incoming
progress stats: https://jibecfed.fedorapeople.org/docs-l10n/localization/
But because of contract and legal question not being fully answered, I
had to stop deployment.
It's been a month with no change, I need your help.
We had some requests from libvirt team (also including libvirt-glib,
virt-viewer, entangle, osinfo-db, osinfo-db-tools, libosinfo,
virt-manager, libvirt-sandbox) but I can't start the work with them.
The https://ovirt.org team also asked me to use the fedora Weblate
instance for hosting their translation.
Can you please:
* give me the approval to continue deployment even if administrative
aspect aren't finalized
* confirm you won't have any hosting agreement with Weblate based on a
string or words volume, as this would prevent us to welcome any relevant
new projects (as long as they use one of the open-source licenses we
allow in Fedora, it should be sufficient)
* validate the work done by Weblate dev to send events to
fedora-messaging, and give them the required credential to send events
Time-outs in a project are like sport, they break the rhythm.
It's been a month of waiting, my time like many others is on a voluntary
basis, I don't have time allocated over a period of time that I can
choose to spend as I see fit, can we please move forward? There is still
a lot of challenges to face.
Thanks a lot for your help,
