So we've come a long way in the last couple of days.  I always
appreciate enthusiasm for something new and you certainly seem to have
it.  Please be patient with the team though as it's very difficult for
us to determine serious contributors from fly by night people.  And fly
by night people really do take a bad toll on our work.

The task list as I see it is you'd still like to see eGroupWare to track
articles, progress and calendar stuff.  In theory this could be used in
other areas of our infrastructure as well.  So the first task I see for
you is to get eGroupWare packaged and in Fedora.

Beyond that I'd like to ask you to contact Thomas Chung about Fedora
Weekly News if you have not already done so.  It sounds like the two of
you are targeting very similar audiences and Fedora Weekly News is
absolutely outstanding in my opinion and more contributors will only
make it better.  I think it would be best if the two of you worked
together to find commonalities like branding/look, release cycle, tools,
etc.  Then Thomas's group could continue to report on all things Fedora
and you could add to it maybe interviews and technical documentation.
Perhaps Thomas would like to use Plone in the future for Fedora Weekly
News when it comes out.

What do you think?


I already am working with FWN and Thomas :). The plan is to include FWN articles in the magazine  ;). And I'm not a "Fly by night" person, I didn't just "show" up, i've been an ambassador for a long time (at least 1-2 years).
