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.
