Ohio Linux Fest (OLF) is coming up fast (09 - 11 September) and we
need to figure out if we want to do a Fedora Activity Day (FAD). From
a Docs perspective, the timing couldn't be better. Although it would
seem quite early for the F16 release it's actually a great time to
really get hacking on guides and such and leave small tweaks for post
FAD. This would also leave a lot more time for the L10n team to do
To determine whether a FAD should go forward we need to figure out two
things: who can attend and what do we hope to accomplish. I know
several of us have already said that we are planning on attending. I
think we can possibly handle VoIP connectivity as well for those in
As far as goals I'd have to start a list that includes:
1. Working to make sure the Release Notes are on track.
2. Working on the User Guide.
3. Smoothing out the translation process and removing barriers.
I just started a wiki page to better document this. Go there and
help spread the love!
Great idea, Eric. By the time you're plotting out a budget (if it's
needed), I would suggest the goals be measurable. How about something
* Prepare Release Notes by completing the following tasks (not sure
what this is nowadays, but it might be something like):
* Review and ratify organization (essentially, confirm Docs team
is happy about the way it works, and if not, change as desired)
* Erase old content from wiki
* (insert stuff here)
* Complete the following chapters in the User Guide:
* For the translation bullet -- figure out the process changes needed
on the list (with trans@ folks), then figure out what needs to
happen at the FAD to make them a reality.
By the way, I sent in proposals for some talks in Ohio, and if I'm
selected and can swing the travel, I would love to participate.
