Q&A

Fedora usability testing

  • dcr226 reported, he and mharris were doing some testing with Fedora 15 for a total newbie, I've also done a fair amount in and around my peers. I guess its just food for though and data
    • Fedora is sooo close to being usable by AverageJoe, just a few tiny adjustments to the process. Perhaps promoting "mind broadening" to some of the guys working on anaconda and the live.isos - the process of finding, downloading and installing Fedora
  • should be reported directly to Anaconda and websites team (or design team)

Fedora 15 retrospective

  • an open Fedora 15 retrospective page at where people can give feedback [1]
    • jsmith to schedule meeting for next week to go over the retrospective
  • the issue with incorrect recommended installation space in release notes should be reported there too, not to forget

How to join documentation team

  • DrManhattan asked, how to help documentation team
    • ke4qqq answered with wiki page
    • jsmith recommended joining mailing list or IRC and offered help with tools etc.
  • this led to broader discussion on mentoring and spread and recruit topics
    • see full log

China Ambassadors mentors

  • Haowei complained that only a few Chinese ambassador mentors are active
    • this is to be discussed on FAMSCo meeting
