So, do we have enough time to spread the word, if the Fedora Activity
Day is to happen this Saturday ? Or should we propose it for the July slot ?

This is where we need the help of all social-media savvy folks on this list.

We will still encourage folks to work on Fedora Infrastructure stuff,
but upstream project specific contributions are valuable to Fedora too.
So we can have a mix of all.

Contributions is not just about development, but includes testing,

We could also through in a few sessions/workshops on topics of interest
like packaging for example.
