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 by an editor in the Kanban section of the Fedora Magazine Pagure in the ideas column.

When the card is created, and the author is known, the owner is assigned in the Assignee field under the METADATA column. This ensures the author is emailed when the card status changes. This operation is performed by the editor.

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