Clarifying Proposals

fedora magazine workflow 2

The Editorial Board reviews each proposal and creates a specific article description.

Proposals might be discussed with the person who proposed them, with subject matter experts, and anyone who wants (or has the technical ability to) give an input. We encourage anyone in the community to provide feedback to the proposals!

Discussing and approving proposals

Proposals are submitted to the Fedora Magazine Discourse forum as topics, and discussion happens right there.

Opinions and additional relevant information is welcome from anyone.

If an editor is happy with the proposal, all they need to do is to reply "+1". Proposals with two or more +1’s are approved.

When a proposal is approved, a new card is created in the Kanban board in Fedora Magazine Taiga, in the Article Spec column.

When the card is created, add the Role: Editorial board member group to the Watchers. This ensures editors are emailed when the card status changes, so someone can react.

This card now represents a specific article and goes through all the other steps of the workflow.
