Hot Topics

Its not too late to share your feedback on the F40 release cycle – a survey is live until Monday June 10th, find it at this link and please help us understand what works well for Fedora and what aspects you think could use a little refinement.

There is also a discussion post on the right kind of questions we should be surveying our community on when it comes to AI. The feedback period will close on Monday 10th June and the survey on AI and Fedora will go live to our community the week of June 17th .

And finally, but not by any means least, the Git Forge Evaluation is underway with an investigation team forming under Tomas Hckra of CPE, FESCo and general Engineer Extraordinaire. There is a discussion topic live asking for people to give their availability who want to also be involved in looking into the technical aspects of Forgejo and GitLab for Fedora, so please check it out. A very important note too – if you have not already done so, please share your requirements for a git forge in the investigation teams repository (ironically on pagure…for now).
