Board Goals

  • Reminding folks that the Fedora Board (with feedback from FAmSCo and FESCo and other groups) came up with three strategic goals for the Fedora 16 and Fedora 17 development cycles:
    • Improve and simplify collaboration in the Fedora Community
    • Improve and encourage high-quality communication in the Fedora Community
    • It is extraordinarily easy to join the Fedora community and quickly find a project to work on.
  • That's the "strategy" -- let's remind people to work on the tactical side of the goals

Board Blog

  • Toshio brought up the question of what to do with the Board blog
  • At a minimum, we should restore the archive to a wordpress instance
  • Continue to blog significant board discussions/agreements rather than every thing discussed
