This came to my attention today:
It looks like it was compiled by one or two folks. I'm curious if
we've thought about whether the women listed here _want_ to be
identified specifically as a "woman in Fedora" or if having a
convenient list of women in the project is a Good Idea(TM) since
diversity efforts seem to be a magnet for trolls.
I would be a little chagrined if we had a list like this used against
us to harass people. Is this wise to have a pre-compiled list when the
individuals who are listed were not consulted first?

I am not sure whether we will be able to manage the video (we are
looking for a DSLR ) and then on the recording question we will need
to get approval from each speaker.
