The Fedora Project Board holds at least monthly public meetings on IRC.

There are two IRC channels available on Freenode (irc.freenode.net). To participate, join both of these channels:

  • #fedora-board-questions -- this channel can be joined and used by all community members like any public channel. There will be a moderator present to review questions, and the Board members can watch this channel as well.
  • #fedora-board-meeting -- this channel can be joined and viewed by the public but only Board members can communicate on it by default. Here the Board members will cover an agenda and then take Q&A. Community members will be "voiced" in the channel to ask questions and discuss with the Board in an orderly fashion.

This setup promotes an orderly process when the Board takes questions or open issues. The length of the Q&A will depend on availability of the Board members and interest from the community.

We look forward to seeing community members at the meeting. We also hope you will enjoy having a look at some of the Board's work, and encourage you to ask questions.

room settings

  • #fedora-board-questions ChanServ commands:
set contact mdomsch
set alternate stickster
mlock +cnr
access add {board members} 49
access add {moderators} 20
set topiclock on

and channel commands:

mode -t
  • #fedora-board-meeting ChanServ commands:
set contact mdomsch
set alternate stickster
mlock +mcntr
access add {board members} 49
access add {moderators} 20
level set autovoice 1
set topiclock on

and channel commands:

mode -t

This gives board members complete control over the channels, and autovoices them -meeting. It also gives moderators voice and necessary powers.
