Basic FAmSCo activity

What is this section's purpose?
This section gives some quick health indicators about how much FAmSCo is communicating. Sometimes FAmSCo members can't make a meeting due to travel or conflicts with their $DAYJOB, but the combination of meeting attendance plus email is a nice metric.

FAmSCo meetings

FAmSCo held 3 meetings in February. Attendance was as follows:

  • 3 out of 3 -- Joerg, Maria, Susmit, Rodrigo, Luca
  • 2 out of 3 -- Max, David

So far this year, FAmSCo has held 6 meetings. Overall attendance has been:

  • 6 out of 6 -- Joerg, Maria, Susmit
  • 5 out of 6 -- Rodrigo, Max, David, Luca

General accomplishments or decisions

What is this section's purpose?
This section discusses the non-regional achievements within either FAmSCo or the larger Ambassadors project from this month.
  • First Townhall meeting was held on 8th February. It was generally constructive.
  • Concerns were expressed about "Bad" booth behaviour. FAmSCo discussed about it and decided to leave the behavioural decision to the event owner.
  • FAmSCo has decided to create a page for "things to show on your laptop during an event".
  • FAmSCo was notified about a case of dispute between a mentor and a mentee. FAmSCo decided to create a SOP for ensuring prompt action for settling such disputes.
  • FAmSCo has decided to have a mentor meeting. The goal is to collect feedbacks for improving the mentoring process. It will be held on 1st march, 1900 UTC at #fedora-meeting-1.
  • FAmSCo has decided to open up the FAmSCo trac, but not before Max deletes all the tickets with private info.
  • Paul Mellors is now a Mentor.
  • FAmSCo has decided to replace the Ambassadors FAQ with a page like this. Help is needed from the ambassadors for building this.
  • FAmSCo will triage all the outdated pages in category:ambassadors. The pace will be 20 pages/week.
