Interesting point. My instinct is to de-personalize it; too often it
seems that we try to rally people around personality and celebrity. I
wanted to emphasize that it is a group effort, and since the group is
made up of "whoever shows up and works", it's hard to name those folks
Still, I can see some other ways that personalize it, so it appeals to
humans :), without making it a cult of personality.
On the Friday of SCALE 8x special events, the Fedora Ambassador team
is conducting a Fedora Activity Day (FAD). The focus of this FAD is
preparing the Fedora Project/JBoss.org joint mentoring organization
for the upcoming 2010 Google Summer of Code. Team members, including
Fedora contributors Ben Williams, Larry Cafiero, Scott Williams, and
Karsten Wade, plan to create process and how-to content. They are
looking to find and solve mentor problems, and educate the wider
JBoss.org and Fedora projects about how participation is conducted
this year. The work prepares the Fedora/JBoss.org organizations for
improving capacity for more students and mentors even beyond the
Summer of Code efforts.
