The IRC (Internet relay chat) Support SIG (Special interest group) is a group of people who seek to improve support users get in #fedora and promote a fun social area in #fedora-social.


Anyone can be a member of the SIG. Just start helping others in #fedora, chatting with others in #fedora-social and attend our weekly meetings in #fedora-meeting at 17UTC on thursdays each week.

Voting members

A subset of the SIG will be voting members and be able to vote on issues brought up for a vote before the SIG. These voting members will be:

  • Having either chanserv or fedbot op access in one of the official Fedora IRC channels, such as #fedora, #fedora-social, or any team/SIG specific channels such as #fedora-admin, #fedora-design, #fedora-docs, #fedora-websites, etc.
  • Have attended at least 1 meeting in the last 6 months, or participating in discussions on the irc-support-sig mailing list.

Any voting member can bring up issues for a vote to others. The vote can be designated private (discussion on #fedora-ops and vote privately) or public (the discussion on the irc-support-sig mailing list and in the weekly meeting).

Q: Who is allowed to be in the #fedora-ops channel? Whats that channel for?

A: #fedora-ops is a channel for #fedora and #fedora-social operators to share information about the smooth operation of their channels and to share frank views of users and issues. Users should not idle in channel, but can join and share problems or concerns and part. Other folks can be asked to join this channel to share their views. They should be proposed by a voting member and be acked by at least one other voting member.

Q: I wish to bring up an issue to the sig, how can I do that?

A: Please file a trac ticket on our trac instance: it will be looked at at the next meeting.
