The responsibilities of the representative involves representing the team to the Mindshare committee and collaborate with other groups/teams/SIGs that work with them. Being a conduit between the two teams, the representative is expected to invest a fair amount of time and have good communication skills.
Representatives are critical in keeping communication between the team and Mindshare flowing. As a Mindshare representative, you will be involved in the following activities:
Participate in the fedora-mindshare IRC/Matrix channel’s weekly meetups
In the fedora-mindshare Pagure repo, review and comment on tickets
Work closely with the representatives from the other outreach teams to ensure that the most effective decisions are made
Give the Mindshare Committee valuable input
Share best practises: one of Mindshare’s objectives is to remove any hurdles or impediments to sharing best practises
Ascertain that the team is represented, and bring any challenges or barriers they may encounter to Mindshare meetings
Ascertain that the Fedora budget is managed efficiently across all locations
Listen to the Fedora community’s needs, problems, and hopes and transmit them to the Mindshare Committee
Duration of service
The service will last for two Fedora release cycles, or a year. However, depending on the personal circumstances of those serving as Representatives, terms may be shorter or longer. In the odd case that the representative(s), Mindshare Committee, or the Websites and Apps Team choose to change representation, they must show appropriate justification. The Websites and Apps Team will then choose a new representative based on the SOP.
This section outlines the process of nominating and selecting representatives. The selection procedure outlined below begins when a current representative, the Mindshare committee, or the Fedora Council requests a rotation of representatives.
Potential delegates will have a two-week period to nominate themselves. Nominees can be self-nominated or nominated with the approval of other members of the Websites and Apps Team. Nominees must be members of the said team, have a basic understanding of various Fedora sub-projects, and have enough time to complete the essential obligations.
If no nominees are found, the Websites and Apps Team will collaborate with the Mindshare Committee to extend the search message and request more time. If no nominees are discovered after that, the role will be rotated among current Websites and Apps Team members until a new representative is found.
Teams you will be closely working with
