#127: FAD at OLF?!?
Reporter: bethlynn | Owner:
Type: enhancement | Status: new
Priority: major | Milestone: Future releases
Component: other | Severity: urgent
Dear Fedora Community,
The bad news is that I am taking a 6 week break from this Project. I am
still interested SELinux marketing, free software marketing in general,
and the Docs project as the GNOME beat writer. For now I need to focus on
the Ohio LinuxFest - ohiolinux.org - OLF.
and now for the good news
The Fedora Community is welcome to hold a FAD at OLF on Friday September
10. If this is going to happen, someone needs step forward and own the
coordination of said FAD. I know that the marketing project wanted to do
something FAD-ish at OLF. This is your chance to stand up and make this
Please get back to me by Monday August 9 at noon Eastern with this info:
1. the name of the person who will own the FAD with contact info
2. and the url of a Fedora wiki page where you will organize what sort of
"activity" are doing and when
If you get this info to me, you will be assigned a room.

"When we ship Fedora updates the story is more of the same, more
drivers and fixes to existing drivers," said Dave Jones, Red Hat's
Fedora kernel maintainer. "There are some great features in every
release, but it's mostly more of the same from our perspective."

The current feature list is indeed a little bit .. ahem... lacking on the end-
user front, you're right, honestly.
The creation of Fedora's marketing talking points is mostly an ad-hoc process
done by, well, anyone who is interested at all, marketing, or ambassadors, or
infra, or design or... :)
So, I guess the question then, what do *you* want to see that attracts "end-
users"? :) Granted, Fedora 14 won't ship Firefox 4 (your biggest
disappointment I'd guess, based on your blog post), but there has to be
*something* that users will care about? Anything new in microblogging on the
GNOME end? What about in evolution or gnome-games or ...? (I'm just listing
off random ideas... I'm not a GNOME Desktop Edition user, and probably dont
have much to give to the "end-user" experience discussion outside of the KDE
Plasma Desktop Edition release.)

I think that's more of a FESCo decision, correct? I'd assume that it'd be
taken out, and the fallback provisions (shipping GNOME 2, basically, with
GNOME 3 still labelled as "experimental") would be followed...
All the best,
