SUB: Proposal for Project day on behalf of the Fedora Project.
Congrats on getting the CfP out and getting the process kickstarted. As part of Fedora Project in India, we were already planning sessions and meet-ups around foss.in and now that the CfP is out, it is time for us to be working. :)
As you may be well aware, Fedora India team is constantly working with various engineering colleges across India in form of workshops, tutorials, events to bring new faces to Fedora and FOSS for last several years. It is from this effort that we now have a number of students, mostly from various engineering colleges across India, contributing to different sub-projects of Fedora.
We now have a large body of contributors from the Fedora community in India collaborating and contributing to several upstream projects and various Fedora sub communities including packaging, documentation, infrastructure and others.
This year, we have plans for a few quality talks and workouts among other things, but more importantly, we are planning to provide these new faces an opportunity to meet and work together with peers and experts so that they can take their participation to the next level and also guide their peers/juniors into FOSS arena.
With this in mind, we would like to propose ourselves as a participant in "Projects of the Day" at FOSS.in. Refer to Foss_in_2009 for our preliminary proposal based on our pre-proposal discussions. In the spirit of "release early, release often", we are looking for more proposals amd feedbacks as we progress.
Do let me know if you have any questions,
Thanks, Susmit Shannigrahi Fedora Project volunteer
