  • Fedora Mentors . Start with each project, Karsten did the Docs Project this week. All steering members are encourage to put names on Mentors wiki page, and contact anyone who has introduced or lurked there.

- to market, each sub project has leads/sub-leads. Shoot off mail to them. Then a massive announcement to fedora-maintainers and fedora-devel-list - covers engineering and packaging, how do i write patches, how do I contribute? how do I find the people who get stuff done? what is verbotten in the Fedora community?

ACTION: Colin to contact lead/co-lead of projects/sub-projects in Fedora, to inform them of mentors. Look to hand this off to Mark.

ACTION: Greg to tell Alex he's going to do that

<gregdek> What's a list of CMC responsibilities?
<bytee> yes, so, we have a "global" lead and "regional" leads.
<bytee> gregdek: people the press can talk to, handle LUG talks

<bytee> hand out flyers
<bytee> organise events (like Red Hat meetup)
<gregdek> Do CMCs get together for meetings like this one?

ACTION: Punt to -marketing-list for more ideas
