possible to have something like AMA and ask about specific teams/roles
In recent past I have been interacting with reddit quite a bit.
https://www.reddit.com/r/AMA/ . While many people put up AMA's - AMA
in this context stands for Ask Me Anything (an acronym I didn't know.)
I was thinking maybe could announce an AMA on say #debian-publicity
(where else would be better) and either have Laura, me or anybody who
wants to be the chair for that particular meeting.
It will basically be a Q&A, the transcript done by meetbot with some
of the interesting bits highlighted by the chair . If the chair, the
person who is answering or anybody who is on the channel wants to
highlight a particular sentence/paragraph can do it.
@Laura and other members of the publicity team what do you all think ?
We would give a 2 weeks from announcements and announce time and
channel #debian-publicity where either people can ask questions or
just mail them in firstname.lastname@example.org
An example about how this works -
Let's say we ask the debian-ftpmaster team if they are willing to have
sometime away to answer few generic questions, say about 45-minutes to
an hour (or more depending upon interest)
Today is 13th , so we could ask them if 27th or 28th is ok with them.
If they say yes to both, then we announce it via the various micronews
and whatever way we can. I can put up a blog post about the idea .
Then people apart from being on the channel on the appointed time,
those who can't for one reason or other, timezone issues etc. we could
ask them to drop a mail with the subject line
Sub :- [debian-ftpmaster] Can you tell us some of the common reasons
that packages get rejected ?
We have that 2 weeks window so we should get enough queries from DD,
DM's and even the occasional lighter vein joke .
It basically will do two things, it will help in removing or at least
dislodging some of the myths perpetuated within Debian itself or even
What do people think about it ?
Comments, critique all welcome.
