[https://insight.fedoraproject.org Fedora Insight] is a [http://drupal.org Drupal-based] website that serves as a place to publish and share news, articles related to Fedora and [[Marketing|Fedora marketing materials]] in various formats. Insight makes it easy for users, developers, and journalists -- people who aren't yet a part of the Fedora contributor community -- to keep up with recent highlights without following a dozen different blogs and mailing lists.

{{Anchor|Agenda}}
  
===Background===
+
== Meeting agenda ==
  
For the F11 release cycle, Marketing switched from a task-based model to a schedule based model. This went well, allowing us to keep better in sync with what was going on and what types of information were needed to be created/put out at any given point in the cycle. However, there are still many kinks and areas for improvement as were defined in document: [[Marketing/F11_cycle_retrospect|F11 Cycle Retrospect]]. Bottom line, complacency is not a formula for success and we must always be looking towards the future and improving it.
+
* Review previous action items -- [http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-meeting/2012-01-03/insight.2012-01-03-21.00.html Previous meeting]
 +
* authfas update
 +
* Office hours
 +
* Hackfest info?
  
Looking forward, we have always floated the idea of having a Fedora Magazine and the going logic is that we may be able to model Fedora Marketing around such conventions which would not be dissimilar to a magazine.  The focus would be not only on producing the content that is required for each release cycle but also on producing relevant and interesting content, in many forms, audio, video and text-based for the consumption of both the general Fedora community and the Open Source community at large.
+
== How to help ==
  
===Present===
+
{{admon/important|Personal Information|Fedora is a very visible and transparent project. Its mailing lists are archived and mirrored in many places on the internet outside of our control. Please use caution when sharing personal information with Fedora on a mailing list, because it is not possible for us to remove any postings from the wider Internet universe after they are sent. For more details, please refer to [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal/PrivacyPolicy Fedora's Privacy Policy].}}
  
Currently, the state of project/community produced content is clearly scattered.  We have many groups, such as Marketing, Ambassadors, Docs, Design, etc. all creating great content for a variety of different purposes.  The amount of this content is effectively multiplied by how much we care to and/or use the services of the translation team to localize this content.  Once this is done, there are various and sundry methods of distributing this content.  We have Fedora Weekly News, Docs Beats, Fedora Planet, local ambassadors newsletters etc.  There is not one central process or policy for creating content and distribution channel/plan.  Also, much of our content is not clearly licensed.
+
=== Decide what you want to do ===
  
Much of this content is also centered milestones and it may be possible to fit it into recurring schedule-based publication which would help overall management and tracking.
+

===Future===
+
=== Become part of our team ===
  
There are many questions to ask. What do we want this to be?  Who should the audience be?  How well do we actually know our audience to make that assumption?  What types of content?  These questions are what we are trying to ask and answer now so we can get a solid picture of how we proceed further.  We need to clearly answer these questions to clarify our goals.  Goals are in the goals section below and they will and should be refined by the community as a whole.
+
# Join the {{fplist|logistics}} mailing list and introduce yourself. Let us know:
 +
#* Your name
 +
#* Your skills/experiences/interests -- Even if you're active within another Fedora team, there may be other Fedora folks who haven't had the chance to meet you yet, so let them know who you are and that you're around!
 +
#* The first task or ticket you plan to work on (see "Current issues" above) -- if you want to work on something else, tell us what it is
 +
# (optional) Check out any other [[#Communications]] channels that you might be interested in.
  
We might want to strive for something akin to a journal style format for community created/relevant content and including Fedora Marketing content might work best.  We should start by investigating sites with similar goals/audiences.  We look at sites like https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWeeklyNewsletter, http://fullcirclemagazine.org/, http://planet.laptop.org/, http://www.olpcnews.com/, http://planet.sugarlabs.org/ -- not to mention [[FWN/LatestIssue]].
+
=== Development ===
  
What we want might be a magazine, which is not really a magazine format, more journal-ish (technical, non-nephyte) but also not afraid to include some stuff for newbies, and mostly a platform where interesting content would show up for the community's consumption, which would act as a central hub.
+
If you know something about Drupal or are a fast learner, we welcome you! We are working on designing the next group of features for Insight.  Here are the use cases we've outlined thus far:
  
Also, the goal should be to create something which is well laid out visually and consistent with the design teams work and general philosophy.
+
* [[Insight use cases for calendar]]
 +
* [[Insight use cases for status and microblogging]]
 +
* [[Insight use cases for events]]
  
==Goals==
+
We're also starting to look forward to Drupal 7, and have started documenting critical path requirements for a future migration to Drupal 7 from Dupal 6:
  
===Centralized Content===
+
* [[Insight Drupal 7 Dependencies]]
  
There are too many avenues to information now, its innundating. Blogs/Planet, FWN, Ambassadors own work, etc.  Also, a majority of this content is text, whereas we would like to make more multimedia content.
+
=== Marketing ===
  
===Content Schedule===
+
The [[Marketing]] team will be publishing its [[Marketing#Release deliverables|release deliverables]] on Fedora Insight, and will be the second users of the platform after [[#FWN]].
  
Well established guidelines for what needs to be produced/is being worked and when it must be published by.
+
We're currently figuring out additional content (other than our release deliverables) that would go into the [[#Content_workflow]]. Our current thinking is several ideas that have been filed as [https://fedorahosted.org/marketing-team/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reopened&component=Fedora+Insight&order=priority multiple tickets in the Marketing trac instance].  
  
This also helps in running a proper marketing campaign.
+
If you want to help with the Marketing side of things, do the following:
 +
# Follow the instructions in the [[#How to help]] section of this page.
 +
# [[Joining the Fedora marketing project|Join the Marketing team]], if you aren't already a member.
 +
# Email the [https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/marketing marketing list] and let the Marketing team know you're interested in helping with Fedora Insight.
  
===Flexibility/Creativity of Presentation===
+
=== Packaging ===
  
Journal Format
+
We could always use packaging help for Drupal and related modules.  If you see an unassigned (''NEW'') bug in [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/showdependencytree.cgi?id=662103&hide_resolved=1 this tracking list], that means there is a package review needed so we can make more progress.  The [[Package Review Process]] page will show you how to do a review.  It takes some time to do a good package review, but in the process you can learn some technical skills and about how this process ensures a good experience for Fedora users installing software.
  
Better able to target an audience

=== Content workflow ===
  
===Standardized Feeds===
+
This is a content workflow envisioned for Fedora Insight.
  
One OFFICIAL Feed for each media type--audio, video, text/print

=== Drupal ===
 
 
 
* imo, way more features than we actually need. [[User:Mchua|Mel Chua]] 15:52, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
 
* bad security record, the sort of PHP app that infrastructure ''doesn't'' need --[[User:Ianweller|Ian Weller]] 15:54, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
 
* There's no way we would put up a Drupal instance ''in addition to'' Zikula.  If we can do this project with a CMS, we'll do it with Zikula, which has already been through the entire process of community requirement gathering, evaluation, and is well into testing and packaging phase. --[[User:Pfrields|stickster]] 17:47, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
 
 
 
=== Wordpress (wp) ===
 
 
 
* mizmo: i am hoping wp is chosen though because its a known quantity and [the Design team has] done themes for it before
 
* has it been integrated into infra's systems, and met their security/packaging requirements?
 
 
 
=== Wordpress, multiuser (wp-mu) ===
 
 
 
* ianweller: wp-mu i don't think is the right choice for foobar, it just complicates things and we don't need multiple blogs, unless of course we want to run the entire thing under the blogs.fp.o umbrella
 
** which, in general, we don't. --[[User:Ianweller|Ian Weller]] 16:11, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
 
** would it not be possible to take that as hosting though, and have it point to a different domain? it would give us all the power of a normal wp install, but have the happy side effect of already being deployed!
 
* A CMS isn't just for serving up somewhat static, undated content. It also can provide blogging capabilities as well; Zikula, Drupal, Joomla, et al., all do this just fine. --[[User:Pfrields|stickster]] 17:48, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
 
 
 
=== Zikula ===
 
 
 
* stickster: there's a great deal of crossover between what Foobar proposes, and what the new CMS (Zikula) can/will accomplish. Foobar sets out a lot of Marketing-specific goals, and I think most or all of them can be achieved through an implementation via the CMS.
 
* ke4qqq (Dave Nalley) summarizes Zikua: After a long period of input, eval, and testing by multiple groups (primarily Docs, but also Infrastructure and others), Zikula has been chosen as a CMS. It has a responsive upstream that's developing new modules for our needs and has even joined fp lists to help us collaborate on getting this up. It wil first be used for docs.fp.o, which currently has no CMS; FPC and F-Legal are also interested in using it - but we haven't mapped out that really well thus far - but it's after docs.fp.o makes the move. polecat (John Poelstra) has stepped up to coordinate teams for a production schedule and some meetings.

This project is no longer active. We're now working on Fedora Magazine instead.

Fedora Insight is a Drupal-based website that serves as a place to publish and share news, articles related to Fedora and Fedora marketing materials in various formats. Insight makes it easy for users, developers, and journalists -- people who aren't yet a part of the Fedora contributor community -- to keep up with recent highlights without following a dozen different blogs and mailing lists.

This wiki page is for people interested in working on and contributing to Fedora Insight itself.

How to help

Important.png
Personal Information
Fedora is a very visible and transparent project. Its mailing lists are archived and mirrored in many places on the internet outside of our control. Please use caution when sharing personal information with Fedora on a mailing list, because it is not possible for us to remove any postings from the wider Internet universe after they are sent. For more details, please refer to Fedora's Privacy Policy.

Decide what you want to do

I want to work on the theme and appearance of Insight. Join the Design team, and look at our page on How to work on the Insight theme.
I want to help develop and maintain the Insight system. Introduce yourself to the team (see below), and look at our page on How to develop for Insight.
I want to represent Fedora in the Drupal community. Join the Ambassadors team -- being a Fedora representative is more than just being a fan. We would love to have you on our team once you are versed in how the project works.

Become part of our team

  1. Join the logistics mailing list and introduce yourself. Let us know:
    • Your name
    • Your skills/experiences/interests -- Even if you're active within another Fedora team, there may be other Fedora folks who haven't had the chance to meet you yet, so let them know who you are and that you're around!
    • The first task or ticket you plan to work on (see "Current issues" above) -- if you want to work on something else, tell us what it is
  2. (optional) Check out any other #Communications channels that you might be interested in.

Development

If you know something about Drupal or are a fast learner, we welcome you! We are working on designing the next group of features for Insight. Here are the use cases we've outlined thus far:

We're also starting to look forward to Drupal 7, and have started documenting critical path requirements for a future migration to Drupal 7 from Dupal 6:

Marketing

The Marketing team will be publishing its release deliverables on Fedora Insight, and will be the second users of the platform after #FWN.

We're currently figuring out additional content (other than our release deliverables) that would go into the #Content_workflow. Our current thinking is several ideas that have been filed as multiple tickets in the Marketing trac instance.

If you want to help with the Marketing side of things, do the following:

  1. Follow the instructions in the #How to help section of this page.
  2. Join the Marketing team, if you aren't already a member.
  3. Email the marketing list and let the Marketing team know you're interested in helping with Fedora Insight.

Packaging

We could always use packaging help for Drupal and related modules. If you see an unassigned (NEW) bug in this tracking list, that means there is a package review needed so we can make more progress. The Package Review Process page will show you how to do a review. It takes some time to do a good package review, but in the process you can learn some technical skills and about how this process ensures a good experience for Fedora users installing software.

Content workflow

This is a content workflow envisioned for Fedora Insight.
