Kernel 4.18 Test Day 2018-08-21

This version will also be the shipping kernel for Fedora 29. So it’s to see whether it’s working well enough and catch any remaining issues.

Feedback needed on Fedora event guidelines

The Fedora Diversity & Inclusion Team is working on a new set of best practices and guidelines for Fedora-organized events. The team is looking for feedback from the wider Fedora community, both remote and in-person at the upcoming Flock 2018 conference.

What are the Fedora event guidelines?

Fedora event guidelines are a set of practices to help foster inclusion and grow diversity in Fedora-organized events. We value the participation and involvement of all people – speakers, attendees, and volunteers alike. Everyone can have different challenges or circumstances that affect their ability to participate in an event. Through these guidelines, we want to ensure that we think about the challenges of each and every person. It enables us to work toward helping all people to fully participate, and feel welcomed and comfortable.

Call for Outreachy mentors for Winter 2018

The Fedora Project is looking for project mentors in the next round of Outreachy. For those who aren’t familiar, Outreachy is a paid internship inspired by Google Summer of Code for people underrepresented in tech. Interns work remotely with mentors on projects ranging from programming, user experience, documentation, illustration and graphical design, to data science.

Every idea or project needs one or two responsible mentors to teach and help the intern. Please note that Outreachy applicants are expected to make a first contribution to the project they are applying for so mentors need to have proper tasks defined for applicants to work on. Mentors should be able to commit at least 5 hours a week on most weeks from the beginning of the six-week application period (around mid September) through the end of the three-month internship (Mid March). You should have a real interest in their success and be engaged and excited about the project.
