Actually that's not a bad idea at all. The nature of a large/broad
based event often obfuscates the fact that there the project itself is
made up of smaller collectives.
A "community" (and we have used that word in abundance in this
conversation) is really a group of individuals who have a form of
shared interests and goals. So, if a group of individuals who have
taken a few first steps in learning how to make their first
contributions to a Fedora (sub)project decide it would be nice to
celebrate a release they were participating in - what is the exact
nature of the concern that we are trying to discuss?
There’s no problem in doing a number of smaller/micro events. However,
it has to be planned properly, in advance, before making an
announcement. It could be done over the mailing list, IRC meetings, so
that the organizer can get feedback from the community to do things
the right way.
I am going to re-hash what I mentioned at the Pune FUDCon - we do
to get off this notion of only the blessed can organize Fedora events.
The centralized model failed us at the very point we lacked ownership.
Trying a de-centralized approach could be a good step forward.
The community is not a religious organization where you require
blessings from a high priest to lead events. Your contributions and
consistency are the only metric that makes you earn trust in a
community. What we focus in the Fedora Community that people become
contributors first, to evangelize for the project, and not just
evangelizers burning community resources doing no contribution.
Let's cut to the chase - what is the worst that can happen?
a boat load of events which are springing up everywhere? What's the
downside in that when contrasted with the fact that we haven't been
having regular meetups both for Fedora and participating across other
exciting communities (eg. k8s, adb etc)?
+1 from me for a number of events, but it has to be planned keeping
the community in page.
I think you are mixing up your knowledge of what comes to you as
of your day job and what has been publicly posted. And I'd like to
understand why you think this call-for-action is not "doing things
To be honest, I have always kept my day job and community work
separate. I have contributed to the community when my day jobs were
not favorable to Open Source contribution, and now at Red Hat, my day
job is to do Open Source work, but does not always include
contributing to Fedora directly. I still contribute to Fedora outside
my day job, because it’s fun.
