|planning for the future

I've been relatively silent since FUDCon, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy. January and February are typically heavy planning months at Red Hat. The fiscal year starts for us on March 1, so all of the different groups are working on goals for the year, strategies, budgets, etc.
Greg, Jack, and I have been doing a lot of work on what I generally will call "Community Architecture" -- strategies for Red Hat's continued investment in Fedora and other community-first activities, along with specific goals and responsibilities for the next 13 months.
Paul Frields and the Fedora Board have been participants in this process, and as approvals and budgets for the year start to come back, we will make sure that we share the information with the community at large, and we'll all work together to have another good year for Fedora.
One thing that looks pretty likely is that there will be significantly increased budget for events worldwide, as we seek to bring the energy of BarCamp and Hackfest FUDCons to more areas than just North America.
So... just wanted people to have a brief peek behind the curtain at what is going on. Hopefully this will all resolve with an "official" next job for me as well, still working on Fedora and community stuff. Until then, I will continue to do everything that I can to help Paul's transition into Red Hat and Fedora full time.
Things are busy, which is good. That's how I like it.
