Board Replaced by Council
This document is obsolete and preserved for historic reasons. As decided by the board on 2014-09-09 the new top-level governance (Fedora Project Council) is in effect since 2014-11-26.

Meeting Schedule

In addition to the email lists on which the Board will conduct its business, there will conference calls at least twice per month. The Board endeavours to hold a public meeting every two weeks; right now they are held via IRC .

The Board will attempt to make every other meeting a public IRC meeting although special meetings may shift the schedule around a little bit.

Sometimes the FPL will be unable to attend a meeting. We'll make an effort to find out if someone else can lead the meeting on the board mailing list. If no volunteer appears, we'll announce that the meeting has been cancelled on the Advisory-board list.

  • If you will not be present for duty, arrange for a substitute. The easiest way to do this is swap with the next person on the roster. Record your changes here.
  • Notes are taken interactively in a Gobby session, in wikitext. The * bullet mark is very useful, and members are encouraged to attach names to statements for better transparency.
  • This template can be used for gobby meeting notes:
  • When the meeting finishes, the secretary lets the other members know when they plan to publish notes, no later than 24 hours later if at all possible (but often only an hour or two later).
  • Members departing Gobby implicitly agree with the published notes.
  • The secretary:
    1. ...publishes a copy of the notes on the wiki, with the page name Meeting:Board_meeting_YYYY-MM-DD.
      • Please remember to add the category link [[Category:Board_meetings]] at the bottom.
    2. ...emails a copy of the notes to the advisory-board list and the meeting minutes list, using the subject Fedora Board Recap YYYY-MM-DD.
      • Please include at the top of that email a link to the wiki page. You can use this link (only valid the same day as the meeting).
  • The secretary assumes responsibility for republishing minutes from public IRC meetings.
  • If a meeting is to be canceled the Chairman will send a note to the FAB list stating that.
