** At a technical level, I'm going to continue working to improve Fedora's hardware support and make it as easy as possible for users to get Fedora onto their systems. At a social level, I want to be actively involved in the user base discussion. Fedora isn't just about satisfying the users we have, it's about the users we want - and it's important for us to identify what stands between us and achieving that goal. The hostile tone present on many of our project communication channels is a barrier to involvement and fits poorly with the inclusive focus of much of our publicity. This needs to change.
