Howdy Badgers, and happy New Year! This topic is a continuation of our last meeting so we can identify a regular meeting cadence and get this train rolling. Here’s what you need to know!
- Starting a monthly Fedora Badges community roundtable on the third Wednesday of every month, at 13:00 UTC.
- Next proposed meeting: 2023-01-18T13:00:00Z
- Launching two “sub-teams” of Fedora Badges for developers and designers.
The details below are how I am thinking to organize things. If you have other ideas or suggestions, please offer them up! Or an acknowledgment is okay too.
Because Fedora Badges is a large project with several different workstreams, @eocarrol and I thought it made sense to have a monthly call with all Fedora Badges stakeholders to raise concerns, work through challenges, and have some social time. This will be the one common place where anyone working on Fedora Badges can congregate and ask questions to the larger community.
Once a month might seem too infrequent, but more on that in the next section.
Based on the Whenisgood poll responses, I chose the third Wednesday of every month at 13:00 UTC as the possible time. I know this is not a perfect time for everyone, but it felt like the best compromise given we have participants on almost all sides of the planet.
So, this would make our next meeting on 2023-01-18T13:00:00Z. I have set up a calendar invite in my calendar and will also add one to Fedocal, but first I wanted to get feedback before making it official.
Fedora Badges sub-teams and breakouts
Next, we are thinking to have two separate “sub-teams” for Badges: one for the designers and one for the developers/sysadmins. This way, each team can meet to discuss topics most relevant to their skills and backgrounds. Then, if there are topics that need to be addressed by everyone, we can push those topics to the monthly roundtable.
However, we will need some help to make this possible! It would be great for us to have two co-captains for each sub-team. The co-captain will take responsibility of chairing meetings, organizing discussion topics, and posting updates here on Fedora Discussion and Matrix.
Right now, @t0xic0der has volunteered as a co-captain of the Development team. We still need a second co-captain for the Development team, and we will also need two co-captains for the Design team. Anyone who is interested can either ask questions or volunteer in this thread. Anyone can also write me a message on Matrix to know more about co-captains.
If we don’t have co-captains identified by the 18 January roundtable, then we will use that meeting to identify co-captains and make plans for each sub-team to have regular meetings.
Questions? Thoughts? Ideas?
That’s all for now! Things will be slow at first as we get going again after the new year, but there is a lot to look forward to. I’m open to your questions, feedback, or any thoughts you have about our plans for reviving Fedora Badges! Hope to see folks online soon.
