      • #info "Publicizing "Fedora affiliates" (or groups using Fedora)"
      • There's been a lot of feedback added to the ticket, differing from whether this is an Ambassadors task, what the name of the program should be (and what it implies), how to keep in contact with the affiliates, and how intense the process is. Please take a minute to review the comments, and then let's discuss what the next steps and action items are.

      • #info "Transition to FOSCo - Nomination of the marketing coordinator"
      • FOSCo (Fedora Outreach Steering Committee) is planned to be the future replacement for FAmSCo (Fedora Ambassador Steering Committee). FOSCo would have more participation and involvement from multiple areas of the project. mailga nominated jflory7 as the representative for the Marketing sub-project and wanted other members of the Marketing team to review the nomination.
    • #info === Ticket #226 ===
      • #link
      • #info "Screenshots for Fedora 24"
      • Screenshots for F24 are listed as an action item for the release cycle around now. We opened the ticket to see what needs to be completed, where the screenshots will be used, etc. If mailga is around, he may be able to advise on this, but if not, any other Marketing member who knows about the process may be able to add more context here. If not, we should skip for now and come back once mailga or another Marketing member is able to add more info to the ticket.
    • #info === Ticket #227 ===
      • #link
      • #info "Create the release announcement for Fedora 24"
      • It's that time of year! We need to begin discussing the release announcement and how we want to shape it this year. There were some concerns about how to do so for Fedora 23, but we ran out of time to make those discussions into something tangible. Now, we have some extra time to plan this out. Please review the ticket briefly, and let's move discussion here to the meeting about how to proceed.
