+Earlier this year I was at South East Linux Fest in Charlotte NC, and
6
+listened to a talk by Clint Savage (Herlo) about a new Enterprise Linux
7
+rebuild project that he was working on. The goal of the project was to
8
+make a community based enterprise rebuild that operates very similar to
9
+Fedora. I was intrigued, like most people the giant gap between RHEL 6
10
+and CentOS 6 was frustrating to me; the idea of a community run
11
+enterprise distro sounded great.
12
+
13
+
14
+The question was how can I help? The answer was "What are you good at?"
15
+Since GoOSe is just getting off the ground they need help all over.
16
+Naturally I started working on documentation stuff, but because its a
17
+small community the team needed someone with PostgreSQL experience so I
18
+started helping with that as well.
19
+
20
+
21
+What I am doing is not the point of this post. The point I am trying to
22
+make is that in a large community like Fedora, it can be hard to find a
23
+task that interests you, someone is already packaging your favorite
24
+stuff, or people are working on infrastructure you know and it can be
25
+intimidating to try and jump in.
26
+
27
+
28
+GoOSe is a new project and there is plenty of stuff for people to work
29
+on. It is also a small group of people working on it at them moment
30
+which makes it that much easier to get acquainted and feel comfortable
31
+working with the group.
32
+
33
+
34
+If this sounds interesting to you, or you want to hear more jump in
35
+#gooseproject on freenode, or visit the website. You can also see source

+Collaboration and community are truly at the heart of everything Red Hat
9
+does. Seth Vidal, a longtime member of the Fedora Project and Red Hat's
10
+Fedora team, espoused these values and represented the best of open
11
+source. He was a lead developer of the yum project, the software package
12
+manager used by Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and other RPM-based
13
+distributions. He played a significant role in the Fedora infrastructure
14
+team, working tirelessly to keep the lights on and leading the efforts
15
+to make building and managing third-party package repositories easy for
16
+Fedora developers. With permission from Seth's loved ones, it is with
17
+great sadness that we share that Seth died tragically on July 8. The
18
+entire Red Hat family extends our sympathies to Seth's family and
19
+friends during this difficult time. In the last 24 hours, Red Hatters
20
+from around the world have expressed their condolences and remembered
21
+Seth on memo-list, Red Hat's infamous internal mailing list where Seth
22
+himself was a regular and passionate contributor. We've seen Seth
23
+described as funny, smart, charming, sometimes opinionated, and always a
24
+fervent supporter of open source. Seth's contributions span far and wide
25
+in the open source community, and his impact will live on through the
26
+millions of people around the world who touch open source each day.
27
+Thank you, Seth, for everything you contributed to open source, to
28
+Fedora, and to Red Hat. We will miss you, and you will never be
29
+forgotten.

+#+TITLE: Docs FAD
2
+#+DATE: <2014-03-28>
3
+
4
+The Fedora Docs team recently held a Fedora Activity Day (FAD) and I
5
+think it was a big success. Late last year the team was talking about
6
+how to make it easier for new people to contribute to Docs, and after a
7
+lot of great discussion it was decided that we should get together to
8
+find a solution. Since the team is spread out all over the global we had
9
+two meeting locations linked by video conference. One group was located
10
+at Red Hat's headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina and the other was
11
+in Brno, Czech Republic, with a few others (like me) joined in from home
12
+to as well.
13
+
14
+As the date of the FAD approached more tasks where added to the list,
15
+and while we initially wanted to talk about new contributors, several
16
+other tasks also got completed. Over the course of three days we worked
17
+of the following tasks.
18
+
19
+
20
+- A mentoring program
21
+- Videos for new contributors
22
+- The Documentation Guide
23
+- Docs Office Hours
24
+- The new publican site
25
+- Plans for handling Docs in the Fedora.next world
26
+
27
+
28
+** Contributors
29
+In order to help people get started in working on Fedora documentation
30
+the team has committed to several tasks. Firstly we are going to revive
31
+the mentorship process, this means that when someone shows interest in
32
+helping work on documentation someone from the Docs team is going to
33
+work with them to make sure they have the tools and skills needed to get
34
+things done. While we have always try and help people as a group,
35
+assigning new members a single point of contact will help people to fell
36
+more comfortable asking questions start out strong. Along with the
37
+mentoring we have started to allocate time each week for members of the
38
+team to be available on IRC to answer questions. Starting this week we
39
+have office hours set for Thursdays from 1800-1900 UTC and Sundays
40
+between 1500-1600 UTC.
41
+
42
+** Docs Website
43
+With the migration to Publican 4, we are also working on refreshing
44
+docs.fedoraproject.org. The new site is built using RPMs for each guide
45
+and will allow the team to refresh documents quicker and easier. Over
46
+the course of the FAD Jared, Pete, and Nick did a lot of work to get
47
+that new infrastructure working.
48
+
49
+** Guides
50
+Several people worked on improvements to guides during the course of the
51
+FAD as well. The Documentation Guide received a lot of attention, adding
52
+information from the style guide along with numerous other updates.
53
+
54
+
55
+** Fedora.next
56
+In order to make sure we keep up with the changes happening around
57
+Fedora, the group has decided to send a representative from Docs to each
58
+Working Groups meetings. Jared will be working with the Cloud group,
59
+Pete with the Workstation group, and I will be working with the Server
60
+group. Additionally, we have added a section to the release notes to
61
+highlight the changes in each product.
62
+
63
+** Conclusion
64
+I was very happy with the outcome of this FAD, and hope that it will
65
+revitalize the Documentation team. The action items we have for work
66
+should help the team to stay focused on what needs to be done, and that
67
+should allow us to create better documentation for Fedora as we go
68
+forward. Thanks to Red Hat for providing space for the FAD, and to
69
+everyone who participated.

4
+I have been using Fedora for a long time, what started out as the simple
5
+usage of an operation system turned into a passion for a great
6
+community. I have always thought that the 4 Fs of Fedora where a catchy
7
+yet honest representation of the project, but recently the 2nd F has had
8
+a whole new meaning to me.
9
+
10
+
11
+In January my wife and I had our third child who was born with several
12
+medical problems. I made a passing comment to someone about it in IRC
13
+and I have been blown away by the amount of support I have received
14
+since that time. Someone once told me that users are great but making
15
+users contributors is what strengthens the Fedora Project. If Fedora had
16
+all the users in the world, but no new contributors where being added
17
+everything would fall apart.
18
+
19
+
20
+That idea is obvious and true, but now more than ever I see how
21
+important the idea of friends are to the community. Over the years I
22
+have made many friends in the Fedora community and that has only
23
+strengthened my passion for Fedora. When you receive so much support
24
+from people who you only talk to online, in a time of need, it is an
25
+amazing thing. People I do not normally talk to regularly reached out to
26
+me to offer support or sometimes just to talk. I think that the amount
27
+of support I have from members of the Fedora community may have been
28
+better than what I had from people I deal with in person on a daily
29
+basis.
30
+
31
+This post is not to talk about my issues, my son is doing better, it is
32
+to highlight all of the amazing people we have working on Fedora every
33
+day. Fedora is made up of a wonderful community of smart and helpful
34
+people. While I think that freedom, features, and being first are all
35
+valuable attributes for Fedora to aim for, to me the friendship is the
36
+most important.
