Re: Fedora Board chair looks ahead



I suppose in that article on osforge it was mentioned that within the
next year Max would like to see such and such.  While you can see that
in board meetings or ascertain what the future is to bring, it would be
great to create a talking point out in the community of what the future
holds.

I know what I'm saying is confusing and that Max and other
representatives are busy, I suppose getting some form of information to
flow in an article type situation out to people gives people ideas of
what is going on.

I completely understand what you are saying. I will work hard to continue to give transparency to the work that is happening at the Board level, and also to make it as easy as possible for *everyone* to have a good picture of what the larger goals are.

In terms of your other point of publicity, here's the more or less official line:

We get a few interview requests from time to time. The ones that come directly to Red Hat usually are directed to me, and I have a responsibility to respond to those requests and give interviews, which is something that I enjoy -- though it's funny to read my own quotes afterward and see how they are interpreted.

As for the other Board members -- not all of them want to speak publicly in interviews, etc. -- and that's ok with me. I don't expect that they all will, but I hope that those who want to speak publicly will do so. They're free to repsond to interview requests, give interviews, etc.

We've all got a common message that we're trying to spread when we speak publicly about Fedora. And that message should come out *regardless* of who is doing the speaking. However, aside from that, I think it's incredibly interesting to hear the different perspectives that various Fedora folks have on topics.

I could spend my whole day talking about Fedora and open source ideals with people -- that's a good use of *some* of my time but it would be a poor use of *all* of my time, as I would soon be fired for not accomplishing anything else!

That's where the community comes in -- the rest of the Board, the Ambassadors, and you guys.
