Fedora Leaders Orientation document

  • Questions or comments?



Onboarding document in development over the last few weeks to orient leaders to this group. If you have questions or comments, please put them in the Fedora Leaders Orientation document linked above. 

Leaders have identified a need for better orientation to this group. We want to get to know each other and make sure we have clarity around the groups and roles. Let's have everyone take 2-3 minutes to introduce themselves. You can say more than your name and role, say what kind of work you have with Fedora, and for long standing, members provide advice about how to engage here - it's an opportunity to get to know each other. 


David Wilcox, Product Manager, Fedora. Working with Leaders and Steerers. I try to make sure we are effective with your time. That's part of the orientation document and high priority issues we should focus on. I have an interest in getting on the same page with the focus and initiatives of this group. You are all here as representatives of the community, not just your organization. 


Babak Hamidzadeh, Associate Dean at the University of Maryland. replacing Ben Walberg on this group. I have been working here for 10 years and Fedora predates me starting here. We use fedora for collections and DSpace for our IR but we are looking to use one platform and move everything to Fedora based platform. I used to work at the Library of Congress - we used Fedora there too and it was a good experience. Ben will continue his role on the committers group. 


Encouraging people to review and comment on the orientation document. Anything people want to mention in the last few minutes? 

Robin - love this format. I like knowing what prducts people are using. 

Erin - Notes are best effort. Please review notes for accuracy and anyone who couldn't attend please add your intro to the wiki. 

Tim - Orientation doc is pretty new. If you have questions that aren't answered here, please comment on the public GDoc. We can update it with more information. 

Robin - update on election. 

David - an email is forthcoming on this. We will open nominations for steering positions soon. We want people to get to know one another before we do that. Robin will step down as chair and Rosie will become chair and we will elect a chair elect. The process and timeline will be described in an email. 

I hope this helped acquaint people to this group.
