Meeting summary

    1. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:F13_in-depth_features (mchua, 22:51:51)
    2. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:F12_in-depth_features (mchua, 22:52:10)
    3. That's the list of feature profiles we're doing so far for F13, and examples of what we did for F12. (mchua, 22:53:16)
    4. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Feature_profiles (mchua, 22:53:36)
    5. that's the main landing page for feature profiles - it links to all the ones we've done in the past, along with the SOP on how to make them. (mchua, 22:53:53)
    6. "Feature profiles are profiles of specific Fedora features for which the Marketing team creates extra collateral such as interviews, podcasts, or other materials." (mchua, 22:54:03)
    7. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/NetworkManagerBluetoothDUN#Owner (mchua, 22:57:34)
    8. For featuer profiles for a release, we're primarily aiming at covering the improvements made for that release - for instance, "What's new in NetworkManager for F13? How did that come to be?" It's a story of what people have been doing in the last 6 months. (mchua, 22:58:43)
    9. Feature profiles are consequently based on interviews with the developers. (mchua, 23:01:23)
    10. An easy way to find interviewees for a feature profile is to go to the Talking Points for that release, and click through to the feature pages for the talking point you're covering. (mchua, 23:01:45)
    11. Each feature page will have an owner, and there will be contact information for that owner; oftentimes, that's the developer you want to interview. (mchua, 23:02:01)
    12. Feature profiles shouldn't just be a way to advertise what fedora has - it's also a way for the community to get a more in depth look at what poeple are working on, that they can't always see because they're so busy doing their stuff. (mchua, 23:02:24)
    13. Feature profiles are a great opportunity for developers to have "their chance to shine." Highlight the good work people are doing. (mchua, 23:02:41)
    14. Feature profiles should be remixable content - people can and will respin them into other pieces for blogging, denting, filming, printing, press kits, etc. (mchua, 23:03:21)
    15. There is no word limit for feature profiles, consequently. (mchua, 23:03:31)
    16. http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/homesteading/ (rbergeron, 23:07:20)
    17. http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/homesteading/cathedral-bazaar/ (rbergeron, 23:09:30)
    18. Feature profiles are written on the wiki - you link to them from that release's feature profile page (for instance, for F13, that page is https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:F13_in-depth_features) (mchua, 23:09:45)
    19. The audience for feature profiles is a general Fedora user audience - don't necessarily assume technical familiarity! (mchua, 23:14:39)
    20. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User_base (mchua, 23:14:48)
    21. in feature profiles - we're not just emphasizing fedora -the distro-, but also fedora -the community (mchua, 23:14:59)
    22. Feature profile interviews can be conducted in a variety of ways - IRC is common, as is email, or for podcast, audio, etc. It doesn't really matter as long as the final edited version is made available via the wiki. (mchua, 23:17:09)
    23. possible questions - * tell me about yourself, what do you do, where do you work? (rbergeron, 23:18:14)

    26. what drove the need to create / enhance / upgrade this feature? (rbergeron, 23:18:40)
    27. (not an interview questions) - look at other activities inside fedora. is this used in fedora infrastructure? was there a "fedora test day" done to test this feature? look at the wiki page - tons of information? are there screenshots to be used.. or is the interviewee interested in making some screenshots for the interview? (rbergeron, 23:20:01)
    28. does this feature make the developers day-to-day work easier? (rbergeron, 23:20:42)
    29. robyn is just listing random possible questions to ask (rbergeron, 23:20:53)
    30. when making questions - be familiar with the Feature. try to anticipate what answers might be, so that you can make the next question flow from the previous answer. (rbergeron, 23:21:34)
    31. don't just have a free-flow interview - have questions ready! (rbergeron, 23:22:23)
