Take a look at <https://fedorahosted.org/famsco/ticket/373>
be able to once you're logged in; the FAmSCo trac requires a FAS
account but I don't think anything else). From that ticket:
With the new Fedora Council, some of the broader budget discussions
are being brought up into a higher project level, and at the same
time, FAmSCo has successfully delegated other responsibilities down
to the regional ambassadors' committees.
Meanwhile, the project really lacks coordination between various
areas of outreach — Ambassadors, Marketing, Design Team (which is
responsible for branding), and support efforts like Ask Fedora and
even Documentation and Web. This may also include areas of the new
Fedora.next Working Groups which touch on these areas — branding,
marketing, conference attendance in support of a particular
product, and etc.
The new Outreach Representative on the Council is meant to help
with this, but: a) we'd like that person to be selected by an
elected community body, and FAmSCo is the current closest match,
even though it doesn't encompass everything, b) having a group with
this shared responsibility reduces the workload on one single
individual, c) having a committee connected into the various groups
will help prevent cases where that person happens to have a
blindspot due to their background in the project, and d) having a
coordinated outreach group would be useful in itself.
This new "FOSCo" group would mirror FESCo, and to jointly represent the
interests of all of the outreach-oriented parts of the project. Design
is a little bit of a tricky one because in some parts it's more
engineering and in other ways neither outreach nor engineering, but
some aspects (like branding) seem to make sense.
The current FAmSCo group is generally in favor, but also in some ways
that is group which would be least impacted. So, what do you think?
If people are generally in favor, I'm thinking we'd start this with the
Fedora Project Leader
