Meetings

FESCo meets each Wednesday at 18:30 UTC on the Freenode IRC Network (irc.freenode.net) in #fedora-meeting.

FESCo meeting discussions will last for 15 minutes. At the end of the 15 minute discussion one of the following actions may be taken:

  • If there is a vote to continue, then discussion continues for an additional 15 minutes.
  • If there is no vote to continue the discussion after the initial 15 minutes, ask those members who are discussing the issue to clearly write up their thoughts and position on a wiki page for consideration at the next meeting. Each view point can list their thoughts as a separate proposal, or work off-line with others, to come up with a single proposal acceptable to them all. The wiki page is used in the next meeting to guide discussions and voting.

All requests for consideration by the steering committee (including group sponsorship requests and maintainer-ship issues) should be submitted as a ticket:

Meeting Minutes

You can find FESCO's meeting minutes at the fedora meetbot site as well as posted to the devel@lists.fedoraproject.org list after each meeting. Note that meetings prior to the 2010-10-20 meeting were on Tuesdays.

Mailing List

FESCo has a private mailing list for sensitive matters. This list will have as subscribers only the current FESCo members and the Fedora Project Leader. This list should only be used in very rare situations with private information. The FESCo chair will make sure any discussion on this list that doesn't need to be private will be resent to a public forum (FESCo trac, devel list, etc).
