The Fedora Board met on February 21, 2011. Here is a brief recap of the
* An overview of last Friday's Alpha Blocker meeting was given.
* A discussion of the Fedora 15 Wallpaper situation took place. There is
a "compromise" wallpaper as developed by the Fedora Design Team. If
Upstream GNOME is okay with the compromise, then it will be used, if
not, then the Design team will decide which wallpaper to use. If the
Design team cannot (or does not) decide, the decision will be escalated
to the Board to make.
* A discussion of the move from a Fedora Infrastructure maintained
instance of Transifex to the hosted instance of Transifex (newer), due
to lack of regular resources to maintain our local instance. This move
took place on Friday, quicker than preferred, but the move was necessary
to make it possible to have translations for Fedora 15.
* Mairin Duffy is taking a requested 6 week leave of absence from the board.
* There are legal concerns with the naming of the Fedora French Non
Profit entity, we are working with them to resolve the issue with their
use of the Fedora trademark in their name (it must be removed).
* All legal issues, including those involving trademark now go through
Fedora Legal, with the exception of trademark usage approval, which is
still handled by the Fedora Board.
* After consulting with Red Hat Legal, the Board unanimously agreed to
lift the Legal block on sqlninja.
* After review of the data gathered from public feedback, FESCo, and
FAMSco, the Fedora Board has chosen three goals, to be active until the
release of Fedora 17. In no particular order, these goals are:
- Improve and simplify collaboration in the Fedora Community.
- Improve and encourage high-quality communication in the Fedora Community.
- It will be extraordinarily easy to join the Fedora community from
anywhere in the world and quickly find a project to work on.
Each group within Fedora will be asked to identify tactical targets to
work towards these goals. After Fedora 17 is released, a public review
of the effectiveness of these goals will be done. A wider, more
complete, announcement of these goals will be made by Jared Smith (FPL).
* Work on proposed governance documents as started at FUDCon Tempe
