Hello from Fedora Diversity and stuff side of the wheel.
My country has been experiencing some randomly 2h power outages, that's why
I've been in/out most of the meetings. Sorry about that.
Now that apologies have been made and after reading most of the logs
related to budget, this year I think that Diversity shouldn't require much
since our first efforts are to identify our minorities, and get a bigger
perspective. Beyond people attending to different events to talk about the
Diversity team (which will come inside each event budget) don't think we
would need much.
There is a special gathering that we will held this year, the Fedora Women
Day, which is intended to join all Fedorian's Females into a huge
online/presencial event to share knowledge and experiences. Since we have
females all around the world, I don't think that an in-place event could
gather so many females as an online could do, however, if some small budget
could be allocated to move locally people or just send a thank you box,
that would be it.
The FWD is not held because we care more about females than other
minorities, is just because was the first idea that came up and so we
pushed, as we are doing the same with the survey, articles and statements
that are already out there. Our goal is to make awareness events every year
with each minority (and probably some day a larger one with everyone) to
show our diversity with pride and make a comfortable space at Fedora where
everyone can feel at home.
All of this is new just as the position is, so there was no way to put a
request before on the budget planning.

The "same-as" numbers were already in our stars for this year, because we
are actually seeing the results of the "same-as" process that we've always
had. The new process officially started Q1FY17. If we wanted to make the
case for growth in this cycle, that is something that needed to happen by
the end of Q3FY16.
For clarity, while this year's budget numbers are not yet officially
official (despite it being six weeks into the fiscal year, and those of you
who have been around a long time know this is normal), this year's budget
process did start somewhat earlier. The requests from Red Hat departments
were due in October of last year. Please do not shoot the messenger over
how odd this timeline is. But that's what it is. So if you want a bigger
budget in FY18, you've got between now and October--that's now roughly five
months--to show major change. And FWIW, it is also not only Fedora that
has seen less budget than it would like this year. It is a lean year all
