Encouraging Diversity - Update 1

Hi Everyone

A quick update following on from my thread about encouraging women to 
participate in ASF projects.

I've contacted a few women's groups but not everyone has replied. Full 
details are on the wiki page I've setup.

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/COMDEV/Diversity+Strategy+Ideas

I'll be doing some follow up this week if I don't hear anything.

A big thank you to Tamao who connected me to her contact at Hackbright. 
As she mentioned in her previous post, Hackbright are looking into open 
source programs and partnerships so the ASF could be a very good fit. We 
have a call planned for 16^th June.

Also on the wiki page – I've started drafting some ideas about a general 
high level diversity strategy with a mission statement and some 
deliverable outcomes. From that I've tried to take it down another level 
to think about what we would need to deliver that outcome.

One thing that keeps recurring is that we don't know what diversity we 
have now so will need to perform some kind of survey to measure it. A 
short survey seems an easy answer to the problem so will see if I can 
put together a draft.

Anyway – this is where I've got to at the moment so any feedback, 
comments, ideas welcome.

How is the keys page generated?

Hi,

Reaching out to comdev as it seems to fall here...

How is the page at https://home.apache.org/keys generated?  If I fix my
fingerprint in ldap, is there a job that needs to run for the page to
refresh?

Re: ombudsman <at> (was Encouraging More Women to Participate on Apache Projects?)

Here's what I wrote to you on members <at>  Roman:
"""You're overlooking the archiving problem with president <at>  Roman.That we tell people in the CoC that a
report to that channel is availableto roughly 600 people unknown to them is needed if we are going tonot
paper over the fact that it's really not what a normal person wouldconsider "confidential" despite
the language in the CoC.  Much less theadditional hundred or so unknown people on a pmc list who would
haveaccess to the report if it were made to private <at> pmc."""
Hard to have an intelligent conversation with you Roman when only one of us is paying attention to what the
other has said.

Archiving per se is not a problem. If the archive is only available to
the board I'm border line ok with that.
What I didn't know (and it didn't come up in your emails) is that
there could be other folks having access
to the content of president <at>  who may or may not be on the board.
That's a big, huge problem.

> Furthermore, I doubt president <at>  has an associated qmail owner file, which means any addresses listed in
that alias that go to domains whose mail servers do strict SPF checks will BOUNCE email from major email
providers who publish such rules, and those bounce mails may wind up being DROPPED by Apache's qmail
server since it's attempt to deliver the bounce mail back to the sender may also be REJECTED by the original
sending domain.

Patch looks pretty straightforward Marvin.  However if we're going to use apache.org personal
addresses, those volunteers should ask infrastructure to create qmail owner files for their
accounts, to ensure that all emails sent from providers using DKIM and the like will be successfully delivered.

This is a nice contained task which fixes a concrete issue, and an opportunity

We already have a set of volunteers who were willing to serve behind the ombud
alias.  Hopefully we can confirm their willingness to add their names to a

No Unicode Feather?

This is a somewhat serious question (but only somewhat).

Does anybody know what the process would be like to petition for a feather
(ASF or otherwise) emoji in unicode? Has anybody tried doing this?

Custom Software Reports on the Software You Use

Hey all,

I work at G2 Crowd, and we're in the process of rolling out a new feature
that allows business software users to input the software they currently
use and receive a custom report on the pro/cons of their software, and
potential holes in their software stack.

The feature is brand new, but I was hoping to reach out to the Apache
community to let you have an early peak at it, as well as gathering any
feedback on if information is beneficial to you.

You can check out this new feature here:
https://www.g2crowd.com/used-products/apache-list

Let me know what you think of the feature, areas you would want to improve,
or questions in general.

Thanks!
