Maria Leonova has asked to be replaced on the Mindshare committee. I would
like to call for nominations for who would like to serve on this committee
to represent the design/web teams. The seat is representing both teams, so
after nominations, if there is not consensus, we may need to have some sort
Please reply if you are interested.
nb, for the Mindshare committee
Join us on irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting-1 for the Fedora 30
Beta Release Readiness meeting. This meeting will be held on Thursday,
2018-03-21 at 19:00 UTC.
We will meet to make sure we are coordinated and ready for the Beta
release of Fedora 30. Please note that this meeting will be held even
if the release is delayed at the Go/No-Go meeting on the same day two
You may receive this message several times in order to open this
meeting to the teams and to raise awareness, so hopefully more team
representatives will come to this meeting. This meeting works best
when we have representatives from all of the teams.

Now where F30 aka Fresnel is in a stage, where it becomes acceptable as
theming for our always awesome looking distribution its time to speak
about the future.
I think the way we do with the voting and following the letter scheme
with inventors works so far fine for us. But there are some negative things:
a) it might be just me but I have the feeling, that the timing isnt
right anymore. We have lesser time to work on ideas we have and finalize
b) people still want their saying in it, I filter out votes from outside
the design team
For a) I might have a solution, we just start earlier with the voting
process. We could already start for F31 now and have the result before
F30 is released. That should give us more time and we even can vote for
F32 already what would give as even more time. Time we might need in the
future but also bringing some other things back. The need for release
banners and stuff like this is still there but it always depends on the
progress of the work. I mean we finished a banner for F29 just a week
ago, so way after the release itself. And the future might bring us even
So if you can agree to this, I already have prepared the votings for F31
and F32, so opinions?
for b) I have spoken a while back with Mo already of this, but she was
not convinced. Looking back into our past, the problem we had with the
"codenaming" was simple that the line in the table "possible design
ideas" was nearly never filled and it became more and more crazy with
the names then and we had an harder and harder job. So the problem is
not finding a name as more for us the name is a starting point which we
have to connect to an visualisation. So people want to have their saying
and we want also ideas not just the vote for a name. The solution for
this is let them vote when they give as an visual idea for it. But there
the limitations of the way I so far use start. It is possible to add an
upload field to google forms the uploads go to my google drive, as on
google always size is not an issue, I can let them upload until 1TB,
the problems are you have to do with your google account and we have to
find a way how we as design team can look at it. Should be not the
problem I can share the folder with the team. Problem is more its
legally a greyzone as google drive is for personal use. So in long term
a small app has to do this job, its same coding effort as nuancier was,
think we could convince our heros to help us.
But here more the question, do we want to test that for F31 and/or F32
how people take this? So what are the opinions?
