Who is doing the work?
The problem with trying to tell more people what we are working on is that effectively we dont have many people contributing in active development. The few who are involved are busy cranking away something or the other. This is why there is value in transparency so that others could easily help in the process. Oh by the way, I did mention sys report in the development list a few times before.
While there is value in ongoing updates from developers and others on a regular basis, a tour of the release in my opinion is extremely important since this is a very good opportunity to turn the attention that we get during a new release to expose more of what we have done so far. Such a guide can talk about core features too like security or performance enhancements too. I rather not see that getting dismissed as unneeded. Let’s see if anyone wants to do some actual work here before I go in and fill the gaps.
Release notes is another. Someone needs to step up and do that sort of work more. The number of contributors is these areas including marketing are rather low. A good strong team needs to get things done. There is more to this than merely developers writing blogs.
While I did suggest to some Red Hat people to talk about the open codecs related development that we do, is audio being bad really a common complaint? I never heard anyone talk about audio in Fedora apart from the notorious mp3 stuff.
