Announcing the release of Fedora 24 Alpha!

The Fedora 24 Alpha is here, right on schedule for our planned June
final release. Download the prerelease from our Get Fedora site:

- Get Fedora 24 Alpha Workstation https://getfedora.org/en/workstation/
prerelease/
- Get Fedora 24 Alpha Server https://getfedora.org/en/server/prerelease/
- Get Fedora 24 Alpha Cloud https://getfedora.org/en/cloud/prerelease/
- Get Fedora 24 Alpha Spins https://spins.fedoraproject.org/prerelease 
- Get Fedora 24 Alpha Labs https://labs.fedoraproject.org/prerelease 
- Get Fedora 24 Alpha ARM https://arm.fedoraproject.org/prerelease 

What is the Alpha release?
--------------------------
The Alpha release contains all the features of Fedora 24's editions in
a form that anyone can help test. This testing, guided by the Fedora
QA team, helps us target and identify bugs. When these bugs are fixed,
we make a Beta release available. A Beta release is code-complete and
bears a very strong resemblance to the third and final release. The
final release of Fedora 24 is expected in June.

If you take the time to download and try out the Alpha, you can check
and make sure the things that are important to YOU are working. Every
bug you find and report doesn't just help you, it improves the
experience of millions of Fedora users worldwide!

Together, we can make Fedora rock-solid. We have a culture of
coordinating new features and pushing fixes upstream as much as we
can, and your feedback improves not only Fedora, but Linux and Free
software as a whole.

Fedorans,

As some of you may recall, Fedora added a new seat to the Fedora
Council for a Diversity Adviser.

It is with great pleasure that we do hereby announce, that this seat
has been filled by long-time Fedora contributor María “tatica”
Leandro!

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Tatica

The Fedora Diversity Adviser acts as a source of support and
information for all contributors and users, especially those from
underrepresented populations, so that issues of inclusion and equity
can be discussed and addressed with planning and strategy.

The Fedora Diversity Adviser will lead initiatives to assess and
promote equality and inclusion within the Fedora contributor and user
communities, and will develop project strategy on diversity issues.
The Diversity Adviser will also be the point of contact for Fedora’s
participation in third-party outreach programs and events.

Full description here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Diversity_Adviser

To help communicate the responsibilities of the position, we asked
María a few questions about being the Diversity Adviser and any goals
she had as she begins her new position on the Fedora Community Blog.
Here is an excerpt:

As previously announced, the annual Flock conference for Fedora
contributors will take place August 2-5, 2016 in Krakow, Poland.
Registration is now open at <https://register.flocktofedora.org>.

SUBMISSIONS:

The call for submissions for talks and workshops is also open, and
contributors may submit at the same registration site.  The deadline
for call for submissions is Friday, April 8, 2016.

In a change from previous Flocks, talk and workshop selection will be
driven by a Flock Scheduling panel.  The panel members will work with
the Flock staff and the Fedora Council to determine which talks and
workshops are accepted.

LODGING:

The hotel venue information is also found at the web site, under
"Location."  Although the hotel does not currently offer an online
booking code, a booking/registration form is available for download.
Visit the Flock site for details: <https://flocktofedora.org/location>

at Flock 2016!

Flock 2016 is here!

Hello all,

The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the 2016 Flock conference, 
coming August 2-5, 2016 in Krakow, Poland. At Flock, Fedora contributors 
gather to promote and discuss ideas to improve our distro, community, 
and userbase, and promote our core values: Freedom, Friends, Features, 
First. The announcement was originally made on the Fedora Magazine.

     https://fedoramagazine.org/flock-2016-krakow-poland/

Registration for attendance and talk submission is also open. You can 
register for Flock 2016 on flocktofedora.org. The site also contains 
more information about Flock in general and will be updated as more 
information is made available.

     https://flocktofedora.org/

== What Flock is like ==

Flock operates somewhat like a traditional conference. We have a call 
for papers (CFP) in which participants submit talks for acceptance. This 
differs from our previous, Barcamp-style FUDCon events. This arrangement 
has worked exceptionally well for the past three years. This year 
promises to be one of the best Fedora conferences yet.
The Flock 2016 conference will feature four full days of talks, 
workshops, hackfests, and sprints. Your submission is encouraged, since 
we want to fill the schedule with good content. And of course there will 
be opportunities to interact with other contributors throughout the 
conference.

We’ll have scheduled sessions covering these and other topics:
* Building a Better Distro
* Growing the Fedora Userbase
* Making Life Better for Contributors
* Prepared Lightning Talks (plenary session)
* Team Planning
* Hackfests
* Drop-in Clinics
* Open hardware
* …and more

== Thank you bidders! ==

Flock is significantly influenced by the participation of community 
members carefully researching bids. Even when they are not selected, 
bids help to shape the conversation around the conference, and set the 
bar for future bids, this year, and beyond. Thank you to Pingou, 
Eseyman, Daja, and Chris for contributing your detailed and competitive 
bids in Paris, Toulouse, and Vienna. The Krakow bid was submitted by 
Brian Exelbierd and Dominika Bula, and will continue to be updated as 
the Planning Committee confirms more details about the conference and 
its associated social events.

Interested in what goes into the bid process? See the Community Blog 
article for more information about the process and what happens behind 
the scenes.

     https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/save-the-date-flock-2016/

== Register and submit talks now! ==

Information is coming soon about CFP deadlines, hotel lodging, and more. 
But you don’t have to wait! You can submit your talks along with your 
registration right away. Visit the official website for Flock 2016 now, 
where you can register and submit a talk.
