We had a Marketing meeting today in #fedora-meeting. Only 3 people
attended, mailga, MarkDude and me.
We hoped to vote on some stuff in the meeting, and since only 3 members
attended, we will continue the discussion in the list, so everyone will
have to chance to comment ;)
1)In the last meeting in late July, we went over different roles that
people can take on, and mailga with croberts have made a draft wiki page
with the different groups and coordinators/contributors of each
group. Any comments on that? Anyone that would like to contribute and
join a group?
2)We also discussed the option of having bi-weekly (for now) marketing
meetings again, and as the F21 release is approaching, we could organize
weekly meetings. That will help us be more organized, knowing what needs
to be done until the launch. Any objections?
The meeting minutes can be found here

Thank you Kalev, done.
The rewording you sent me throuhg IRC is also pushed to the repo already.
Part of our Fossetcon sponsorship includes the opportunity for a bag insert.
a) Suggestions about what that content should be? (It's Sept. 11-13)
b) Does anyone have time to make it? (We can reach out to the design team as well.)
I was wondering if we could add a search box on the magazine front page.
For instance, I remember reading about a family tree app, but can't seem
to find it at the moment because it's buried somewhere in the many posts
that we put up after that. A search box would help in such cases.
Join Fedora! Come talk to us!
Just a little reminder that we will have a marketing meeting tomorrow:
Date: Tuesday, 26 August 2014
Time: 20:00 UTC
(credits to mailga for the agenda)
Please keep in mind that the meeting might last up to 2 hours.
Hope to see everyone there!
During Flock we had a talk about being active contributors and membership in the FAS marketing group and we have come to the following:
To stay active in the FAS group you have to make at least one contribution during a release schedule, if you have not made any contributions you will be removed from the FAS group.
We have a lot of inactive members and when I did start to remove people, I got a lot of feedback from them saying why they were removed. This happens in the FI-Aprentice group where if you do not reply to an email each month you are removed. If you are removed from the group and would like to rejoin that is totally fine, we want to see contribution in order to be in the group.
I will post this new information on our Marketing wiki page as well.
