If you plan to attend the meeting, please add your name below.


The theme of this Fedora user's group meeting is improving Fedora based on experience in the field.  With more institutions having experience with Fedora 4+ in production, or interested in adapting fedora 4+, now is an excellent opportunity to translate this experience into improvements in Fedora.  In that context, the format of this meeting will be a series of presentations, updates, and/or discussions, followed by a hackathon with the goal of producing code, design, or documentation.

Possible discussion/presentation/update topics

(please add items here.  Feel free to comment or add your name if a topic is of particular interest)

  • The Public Access Submission System (PASS) JHU's experience and pain points
    • Link is to a google doc with various notes from our experience.  This would be the basis of a presentation and one of many inputs for possible hackathon topics
  • Fedora from a sysadmin perspective - configuring, deploying, or maintenance (e.g. backup/restore). 
  • Performance - experience reports, workarounds, and wins.

Hackathon tasks

TBD.  This will be determined by a discussion at the end of the first day, based on  shared interests, experience, and practical consideration.  The goal at the end of the first day will be to produce a concrete set of tasks for individuals or teams to accomplish on the second day.  Ideally, these tasks will be inclusive of the talent in the room.  Possible areas include software development, design, or documentation updates. 


(proposed.  Feel free to add a presentation to the calendar, or ad it to the discussion/presentation topic list above)
