Good news, everyone!
An unexpectedly high number of people stepped forward to lead the Silverblue community. Unfortunately, this also means we had to make some choices, which means not everyone could be taken on board - but we did decide to spread this role out and give several good people a chance at shaping the future of Silverblue, both in community and, subsequently, other decisions. This means that if someone decides to stop contributing or finds they don’t have enough time, there is no sudden halt to progress.
@saurabhthakre who will be the main go-to person for Silverblue community-related things. He is going to focus on GitHub with varying involvement in the forums and social media, so ping him if a PR you did hasn’t been merged in a while or you want a clearer picture of things.
@jakfrost who has already contributed to the Silverblue documentation and will keep a check on the forums as well, so if you’ve got anything related to the communication on the forums, please ping him and/or Saurabh.
@Lailah and @ketudb as the main persons for social media communication (Twitter and possibly Mastodon and others), but also taking on other parts like forums and checking on GitHub, with a varying degree of dedication, dependent on their availability.
This setup was decided based on skills, communication, Silverblue involvement, and also time availability. As time goes on, people can be added or stop their volunteer work. Our volunteer team is spread out globally, which hopefully also helps with reaching the global community.
To summarize, we have four people taking on the Silverblue community - please reach out to them if you see someone behaving badly in our forums or elsewhere. In addition, you can contact them on the forums with ideas and suggestions.
We will adjust these roles accordingly and will check in about 3 months (or earlier) whether something needs to be changed or added.
I’d like to thank everyone for their time. We are happy about contributions to documentation, website, and code for all involved projects, such as rpm-ostree and Flatpak. In addition, here are some things to tackle:
- starting cartoons/animes around Silverblue with a story behind it
- Instagram (from team pics to conference events to objects that fit the name to screenshots, and more)
- YouTube videos
- blog articles on the main website or, even better: Fedora Magazine, opensource.com, DZone
To the volunteers: If you’d like to put your profile links here, a quick introduction of yourself, or just say hi as replies to this post, you’re most welcome.
Thank you, everyone - stay cool!
