Let's hope all this made sense... --colin Present: Bob-Laptop foosball Matthew Miller Craig Anderson Thijs_H Matt Frye Karsten Wade Gregdk w0ndersp00n Alex Maier Elliot 'sopwith' Lee Jeremy Hogan * how do we explain fedora? I.e. facilitating explanation. Greg suggests: "Fedora is a series of projects. The central project is Fedora Core, which is a leading Linux distribution, sponsored by Red Hat and supported by the community." * Who maintains copy about Fedora at Distrowatch? * How do we come up with a (release) name for Fedora Core 5 * How do we incent contributors to less sexy projects like Bug Team? * Logos - hats, periodic tables, puppy. Bob-Laptop has decided to create a page for Fedora logos (this is step 1). Step 2 - solicit more ideas Step 3 - Cull the best ideas, and get RH creative review/refinement Greg will take us thru Step 3, community marketers to push till Step 2 * Swag/goodies - we want to make sure people making small contributions get recognised. Budget is miserable, but there's a supply of caps (~200), t-shirts (~500) and RH Bumper Stickers (~tonne :P) at RDU. We don't want levels of contributors, as it discourages folk. All contributors are equal. * Swag distribution is a problem. Matt Frye to do this (failing which Colin will do it). Jeremy Hogan talks about a fulfillment site. Both Hogan and MattF to work together * How else can we allow contributors to be rewarded? Mention in release notes, easter eggs in the OS, @fedoraproject.org aliases (action: colin/seth), recognition in RH Magazine (Karsten Wade and Matt Frye are going to try and get 2-3 interviews of Fedora contributors in each issue of RHM - ACTION: write mail to Tammy Fox, cc'ing greg and colin), sending a personal letter of thanks, about:my_name_here in Firefox (ask Chris Aillon about this), possibility of mention in the *RHEL Release Notes* * FUDCon 3 in London - hats off to Alex Maier. Do we want a new naming scheme? Like FUDCon <City> <Year> (i.e. FUDCon London 2005). Will coincide with LWE in London (no weekends, save on budget). LWE UK will support FUDCon 3 with in-kind donations (go Alex!); Alex to work on FUDCon London 2005 page on the wiki. We need to get speakers next.
