Yellow Black Lives Matter update

See fedora-diversity#135. Discussed previously at Council face-to-face sessions. Diversity Advisor has a clear path forward for this issue.

Green Fedora Women’s Day 2020

We did it! Fedora Women’s Day 2020 took place October 16-18, 2020. A few pending action items remain to officially close out FWD this year:

Green Documentation improvements

The D&I Team is focused on improving our documentation and making it more useful for event organizers.

Red Team policy and governance

The various roles performed in the D&I Team are not documented, e.g. Team Lead and Council Diversity Advisor. Justin and Marie met in November 2020 to look at next steps on this area. Justin will propose a first draft of the Diversity Advisor Role Handbook page by the end of 2020.


Green Engineering

Point of Contact: David Cantrell (dcantrell) More information Update date: 2019-08-19

  • No major issues at the moment.

Green Mindshare

Point of Contact: Eduard Lucena (x3mboy) More information Update date: 2019-09-25

  • 12 event request filed for events which are approved some of which are in Dec 2019 and some of which happened recently. we haven’t rejected any event request until now.

  • 3 just swag request filed and approved (some shipped)

  • Call for Fedora 31 Release party Blog is up and live

  • We are trying to come up with a single mentored project rather than two separte GSoC and Outreachy. Idea is to unite the two and form one single structure which will enable potential mentors to submit their projects throughout the year and leave room for small PR open for the community to contribute making us a project rich org with a handful of open project year round.

  • GCI is going to see the same change, where the tasks will be written by potential mentors and we will filter the tasks and mentors which finally will go in GCI.

  • Mindshare is driving a discussion with Fedora Join how to tie contributors to their specific interest areas after they join Fedora.

  • We finished GSoC and Outreachy successfully.

  • Boot disk mirroring (RAID 1) support is complete

  • /boot is now mounted read-only, and /boot/efi is no longer mounted by default

    • Kernel argument changes are managed via rpm-ostree kargs.

Update date

Our biggest concern currently is a large backlog of issues and slow progress on resolving action items for those issues. That said, Fedora Workstation is a mature product, and the issues we work on are generally improvements that are not time-sensitive.

Some issues to watch include:
