Fedora Community Outreach: Revamped

The Fedora Project has been a diverse project since its advent. In earlier years, Fedora outreach was primarily executed by a group of people referred to as Fedora Ambassadors. The Ambassador Program has had many success stories of community growth during its 15+ year history.

However, as time moved on the program began to grow, but not scale and adapt. Different bodies of governance within Fedora had different ideas of how things should be run. With no scalability, participation in the program declined.

The Fedora Action Impact Coordinator, Marie Nordin, created a team formulated of two co-leads, Mariana Balla and Sumantro Mukherjee, and a group of volunteers (Temporary Task Force (TTF)). With a lot of help and input from the rest of the community, over the course of 18 months, we gathered feedback from community members, updated and created new documentation, created new graphic elements for the different outreach teams, and established a new cadence for the ambassadors' meetings.

If you are looking to do the same in your community, this is a great use case.

Session chairs: Andrei Veselov and Richard Filo
