I suggest we add the following folks to the Docs FAS Group:
Eduard Lucena (x3mboy)
Sean Assam (sassam)
I am going from weak memory so please feel free to nominate others.
Assuming they are both OK with and there are no objections, I'll add them
on 25 April.

I would like to start the conversation about what we might be able to
contribute to Fedora that will be mutually beneficial for both projects.
For the last year or so, I have been the lead of a project to develop a
Fedora remix and in this process the team and I have learned many things we
feel may be useful to the upstream Fedora community. We have created our
own custom RPM packages, are in the process of automating our build
infrastructure(not using Koji as it is too large scale for us), and have
setup an RPM and ISO download mirror. Much of this process was fumbling
around in the dark trying to find the right way to do it. I have included a
number of links to various resources about the remix below.
Please let me know if there is interest in this. The team and I would be
glad to work with you.
#rit-tigeros on irc.freenode.net
I am not sure how Fedora specific that is but that seems somewhat
relevant. Do you have a link to this effort? You are correct though that
our docs contribution is primarily how to configure infrastructure used to
build and host a remix.
Please let me know if you have any other insights as to how our one-off
contribution will fit in the larger Fedora docs effort.

You are kindly invited to the meeting:
Docs Writing Hour on 2018-04-11 from 14:00:00 to 15:00:00 Europe/Prague
The meeting will be about:
Join members of the docs team in #fedora-docs for writing time. This is a great time to focus on writing and talk about challenges and blockers related to producing content.
There is no formal schedule for this meeting. Attendees should show up and use this as a way to block writing time into their week.
Hello Docs' Team!
As part of the last meeting (last I attended) I took the task of create a
when is good to everyone choosing an hour in their week to work writing
docs. The idea behind this is to have a dedicated time to work with the
docs' and move the work forward consistently.
The link to vote for the hour you can take is this:
The deadline for voting on this will be one week (Until Next Monday).
Please vote for your preferred time.

Has anyone considered a request for a DuckDuckGo bang for Fedora Docs?
Bangs are one of the unique features of DuckDuckGo. With an alias, you
can search thousands of websites from DuckDuckGo.
For example, it would be cool if `!fdocs rpm` searched the Docs site for
RPM documentation. If I knew there were a DuckDuckGo bang, I would use
it all the time.
There is a form to submit a request for a new bang, but not sure if
someone with more awareness of how search works on docs would want to
fill this out.
I wanted to throw it out there, since Eduard and I had a conversation
about DDG bangs on Twitter. :-)
