Marketing and Fundraising
- The accessibilty FoG campaign was launched the 16th December.
- Unfortunately, Juanjo doesn't yet have data about how is going on so far.
- Piñeiro and Bryen made posts in planet gnome, and Alan Bell and Pendulum will do another one in Planet Ubuntu.
- Also the announce have been published in www.gnome.org and social media.
- There are problems with the donation progress bar, but Juanjo wasn't informed about the current status.
Keynote speaker about accessibility for the next GUADEC
- IDEA: Juanjo thinks it is a good idea to propose a keynote speaker for the next GUADEC from the accessibilty world: Someone who can give a interesting talk about the topic that can help to promote accessibility inside the GNOME community.
- Joanie thinks that keynote speakers are typically chosen because they are seen as awesome/important/whatever by the entire community. She thinks, therefore, that unless you can get someone like Stevie Wonder this will not be a good -- or doable -- idea.
- Juanjo responded that, in fact, the keynote speaker are chosen by recommendation from people from the community.
- Piñeiro thinks that if there is only one keynote, it wouldn't worth to have a specific accessibility keynote
- Piñeiro added, in the same way, we usually have talks about accessibility approved, so anyone could go there.
- There is a keynote speaker every core day.
- If there is just one keynote, and it is about accessibility, we are in danger of keep being seen as a "different thing".
Brian mentioned Adrian Hands as the person he was thinking of earlier, he had ALS but submitted a patch for a 9 year old GNOME bug via morse code: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=78514#c19
