Hi folks -
We are more than a month since we have had enough content for another issue
of FWN, and so I thought I would post openly to the News, Ambassadors, and
Marketing lists, asking for some dialogue around this, and seeking some new
Fedora Weekly News is a very important vehicle for letting both the Fedora
community and the external Linux community, know what the happenings are
with the Fedora Project. FWN has been around for many years and is a
trusted brand that the community looks forward to each week.
Writing for FWN is definitely a time commitment, on a weekly basis, and so
its understandable that FWN's volunteer beat writers sometimes have a hard
time contributing on that regular a basis.
But, if we don't have writers for FWN, we don't have content to produce an
issue, and the community loses the vibrant voice that they have relied on in
Do you have suggestions for making FWN an easier time commitment? Should
we consider moving FWN to a biweekly frequency for some beats that don't
have enough content for a weekly beat?
So, I would like to hear from both current beat writers to FWN, and
community members that perhaps would like to get involved as a writer for
FWN. The bar is not high for participation. You basically need to have:
1) Continuing interest and passion in the Fedora Project, perhaps on some
particular aspect or subproject that you'd like to write on
2) A bit of familiarity with Mediawiki tagging and conventions, and the
Fedora Project wiki Style Guide
3) A Commitment to produce a beat on more or less weekly basis
Thanks for your time and consideration! I look forward to hearing from some
of you and your ideas to make FWN a viable and vibrant media vehicle for the
Fedora Project again.
