Dear Fedora council members,
we'd like to inform you about a rebranding effort for the Fedora Atomic
Workstation that we (Fedora Atomic Workstation SIG) have initiated.
The name we have chosen is "Team Silverblue".
We have created a document that explains the motivations, goals
and history behind this effort:
Our goal is to turn the Fedora Atomic Workstation into more compelling
product that will help bringing new users and mindshare to Fedora
as a whole. A new leaf on Fedoras tree, if you will.
We hope you like it, and support us. We will be happy to come and
present this initiative at the next council meeting, if you have questions.
You are kindly invited to the meeting:
Council (Subproject Report) on 2018-05-02 from 15:00:00 to 16:00:00 US/Eastern
The meeting will be about:
The Fedora Council will hold our regular Subproject Report meeting this week
at 3:00pm US/Eastern in #fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.net. All are welcome!
To convert to your local time, run:
date -d 'TZ="US/Eastern" 3pm tomorrow'
This is not an IRC meeting; it will be conducted via video chat.
(We use meet.jit.si, an open source videoconferencing tool.)
This week's primary meeting chair (usually the FPL or FCAIC) will
reply to this message with specific information.
We're just setting up the website - we can migrate it all to the Fedora
websites when some Fedora resources for it are available, for now we'd just
like to change wherever it says Atomic Workstation to Team Silverblue
(Fedora Silverblue once it's properly on the Fedora website and everyone
feels like it's ready). Legal should get back to us about both Team
Silverblue and Fedora Silverblue at the latest next week.
We will start renaming things and announce it all next week when website
and docs are up - we wanted to inform you prior to any announcements.
Have a great week,
