With the Release of Fedora 11 on Tuesday we are very close to the end of another release!

I am organizing a project wide retrospective for Fedora 11.  At this meeting we will talk about the things that went well that we may want to repeat in subsequent releases as well as things that didn't go so well that we'd like to fix.

The meeting will be conducted over the telephone (global toll free access provided to the participants) and notes taken using Fedora's public Gobby instance.

As much as I think it would interesting to involve everyone in Fedora I'm not sure how to feasibly accomplish that so I am inviting the people that represented each of the teams at the release readiness meetings during Fedora 11.  To expand the participants a little more I'd like each team lead to invite one other person from their team who would be willing to attend the meeting and offer their feedback--preferably someone that has been been involved in the release that hasn't had an opportunity to participate in a forum like this before.

And, to expand the scope of feedback we collect, there is also a lottery where five other randomly chosen Fedora community members can also participate.  The lottery starts today and closes one week from now on June 13, 2009 at 7:00 UTC.  Please enter only if you are able to attend.

While not perfect, hopefully the combination of multiple people from each team as well as five extra guests will give us a representative sample of the fine group of folks that help make our releases happen.

Team leaders please coordinate among your teams (particularly if you cannot attend).  Interested lottery participants please add your information here:

Once the lottery closes on June 13, 2009, I will email all participants with the call-in information.
