2024-05-23 DEI Team meeting summary

Hello again! The DEI Team met last Thursday, May 23rd for our fortnightly meeting. A lot of focus went to the F40 Release Party, which started the next day after our meeting. However, we managed to get a lot done!

  • @ekidney wrangled our 2024 Q1 team report, coming soon on the Community Blog
  • The DEI Team is looking for video interviews about being a Fedora contributor. Our campaign for submissions continues. You can be a part!
  • Help us populate a Fedora media library on GitLab with openly-licensed images. This is intended to become an archive of Fedora photographs, videos, and other media that shows in detail what it is like to be a part of Fedora.
  • We will add a new issue template to our GitLab repository to streamline the process for existing team members to nominate new members.

That’s all for now. It was a busy meeting, with eight people and two bots participating! See you next time for our A/V meeting on Thursday, June 6th! :wave:
