I learned about the Fedora Marketing team through Fedora Ambassador

in the community and Fedora is excellent.
This is the first FOSS project I have worked on! (I'm currently
improving my Python skills, but somehow drawing circles, creating lines,
and general pygame tinkering doesn't seem like a distributable product,
This is the first Marketing project I have worked on!
My skills, which I hope to utilize in Fedora Marketing, include:

I am wondering about Fedora Cloud marketing strategy.

Red Hat Selects New Fedora Project Leader
By Sean Michael Kerner | February 07, 2012
>From the 'Thanks Jared!' files:
It looks like current Fedora Project Leader Jared Smith will not be overseeing the Beefy Miracle Fedora 17 release. Smith announced leadership changes at the Fedora project today that will see a new leader in place.
Smith became the Fedora Project Leader in June of 2010 as the successor to Paul Frields (who had held the post since 2008). I've had the good fortune of speaking with Smith for every Fedora release during his tenure and was always impressed with his depth of knowledge and insight into what really matters - both at Fedora and for the Linux world as a whole.

There's a new sheriff in Fedora-town. Earlier this week, the Fedora Project Leader torch was passed from Jared Smith to Robyn Bergeron. We talked to Bergeron about her previous involvement with Fedora, the challenges the project faces now, and what she wants to accomplish.

New Fedora boss pushes for the clouds
Robyn Bergeron takes the reins

Red Hat has appointed former Fedora program manager Robyn Bergeron to that distro's next project leader – and she has plans to make the operating system more focused on cloud services.
Bergeron takes over from Jared Smith at an interesting time in the market, with the industry increasingly looking beyond the basic client/server environment into cloudier areas, and with a greater variety of computing systems to choose from. One of the areas she’ll be examining is the usefulness of Fedora for cloud services, she explained to The Register on Tuesday.

"The Fedora Project has launched a beta version of the Fedora Packages
web site, which provides access to various information on the software
contained in Fedora. The web site, which is primarily aimed at
developers, gives a brief description of and shows the contents of the
packages that make up the distribution. Users can also find out which
version of the packages are used in which Fedora versions and which bugs
are assigned to a package in the bug-tracking database"
The Fedora developers are currently working on implementing the plan to
move all files stored in the Linux distribution's /bin/, /sbin/, /lib/
and /lib64/ directories to equivalent sub-directories in /usr/. Symbolic
links will ensure compatibility with scripts and software that may
otherwise be caught out by the change."
