Meeting Minutes - 02/09/2005

Marc Wiriadisastra (StrikeForce)
Patrick Barnes (nman64)
Karsten Wade
Alex Maier
Rahul Sundaram
Robert 'bob' Jensen


* Mentors - Patrick has been contacted, so there's some mild success.
Marc will contact everyone by next meeting, and report progress. Do we
need a mailing list where all mentor traffic is cc'ed to or does that
sequester mentor traffic? Help in public might be intimidating, so 1:1
email might be better. Mentors will provide a list of required reading

Action: So, fedora-mentors-list redhat com for mentors and mentees to go
to if confused. private 1:1 chats can happen, with a summary (faq
styled, onus on mentee), to go to fedora-mentors-list. Greg sent for
list creation immediately, kudos.

Lead: Marc Wiriadisastra
Co-Lead: Patrick Barnes

* FUDCon schedule is finalised. Rahul will send to other news sites, and
create the list of standard sites to send PR to. Why are registrations
<lxmaier> a) predict number of people who show up
<lxmaier> b) collect email addresses for future reference

* CMC's and trusting translations:
We make:
1. Clear positioning statements
2. Empowerment of individuals to be wrong.
3.  A strong culture of KNOWING the good word of Fedora.

ACTION: Colin to incpororate the "code of good behaviour" into the CMC
stub document.
ACTION: Greg to request a fedora-cmc-list, private list for CMC's,
similar setup to fedora-maintainers
ACTION: Add: frequently made mistakes, what to say/what not to say,
responses to FAQs, avoid BIG MISTAKES

Some BIG MISTAKES (gdk):
1. Directing people to copyright/patent infringing code.
2. Not using the Red Hat name in vain.
3. "don't go sending people to legally infringing content in our name".

Be aware of Trademark guidelines and ForbiddenItems (on Wiki). Make sure

Idea: <lxmaier> we can request that beginning CMCs CC one of the
marketing mentors when they do their evangelizing

Karsten asks if CMCs can send people to forbidden stuff in their own
name. Marc, Patrick, Alex, says no. Greg  mentions that we should wait
for the FF to be established.

<gregdek> A stray mention of FORBIDDENITEMS right now could expose RH to
a shitload of litigation.

Let CMCs know the landscape now, and that it will change soon

* Swag, skipped again

* Logo: Frist draft from a Real Designer(TM) available soon. We can't
place a vote on logos, as establishing a brand is something that
professionals spend a lot of money to do. Folks will have input, and if
a huge majority of folk *hate* the logo, it will be killed

* fedoralinks.org has links; does it need further fedora-ification?
Poking hrishi/dfong might be useful. Bob mentions 278 votes collected,
majority for this site design

* Fedora Marketing Kit: different purposes, different kits, but similar

0. Those not on Linux
1. Novice end users
2. Developer/sysadmin types
3. Potential individual contributors - no single path/defined way of
doing "cool stuff" for FC. HelpWanted page helps? 
4. Potential business contributors

* Meeting is now weekly, not bi-weekly. See you all next week
