Objective Idea: Fedora Community Outreach Revamp

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


This objective will be an initiative to revamp several community outreach teams within Fedora that are struggling to function, or need more support to truly become a success. The objective will bring together Ambassadors, Ambassador Emeritus,  Join SIG, and Advocates all under the same umbrella of CommOps in a clear and cohesive structure. 

Work involved:
The objective will be based on a proposal that has been approved by the Mindshare Committee. [1] The revamp is being co-led by Sumantro Muhkerjee and Mariana Balla with the support of Marie Nordin, FCAIC. Sumantro and Mariana will co-lead the Objective as well if approved. 

There has been a call for volunteers, and kick-off meetings are being arranged. [2] The proposal is also inclusive of the different teams under Mindshare, assigning tasks for each team to own. A further breakdown of tasks, timelines, and blockers can be found on the Revamp Trello board. [3]

Desired outcome:
The desired outcome for the Community Outreach Revamp is for Fedora’s outreach teams to be functioning successfully. The teams should be reinvigorated, understand their different roles clearly, and have all the tools to effectively outreach. Another desired outcome for this revamp is to rebuild contributor fulfilment in various ways. 

Why this initiative should be a Fedora objective:
This initiative should become a Fedora objective for a variety of reasons. It is a large coordinated effort that will take 6-12 months to complete. Community outreach is an important aspect of the Fedora Project that does not get as much visibility as some technical initiatives. Making the Revamp an Objective will bring increased visibility. It will help to interest more people to contribute, and furthermore it will also bring credibility to the work that is being done. It will also create accountability to the Council to ensure the work is moving forward. 

Feedback from the Council: 
Please respond to this mail with thoughts, considerations, or suggestions for improvement. Once we receive feedback we will begin putting together the formal Objective proposal. [4]
