Remembering Thomas Gilliard (satellit)

I’m sad to report that Thomas Gilliard (satellit), who was a
valued member of the QA team for many years, passed away last week. His
wife contacted me with the news. Thomas was a regular and reassuring
presence at QA and blocker review meetings and ran many thousands of
tests since he first joined the team in 2009. He was particularly
dedicated to testing our Sugar builds. We’ll miss him.

Fedora Ambassadors Revamp 2020 — call for volunteers

In the past times the Fedora Ambassadors Program had some issues, which made the Ambassadors Team feel disheartened and discouraged. This caused the Mindshare Committee to step up and to gather community input to improve the Ambassadors Program, which gave birth to the Fedora Ambassadors revamp proposal and to create a temporary taskforce which would work on the plan of action in the proposal.

If you would like to apply to volunteer, you can comment on the Pagure ticket with your FAS ID.

Using source-git to maintain packages in Fedora

This blog post is a followup to the discussion and lays out a concrete plan of what we want to do.
