Starting a moderation team in GNOME to make sure the community is safe and healthy where the channels have their own moderators

  1. Staff cannot be part of moderation team due to conflict of interest.
  2. people who will be part of moderation team shouldn’t be very connected to the community and there should be some criteria before joining.
  3. The moderation team will have a channel for day to day communications.
  4. The moderation team will make the announcement on discourse so its transparent what they are doing.
  5. One moderator can moderate 1-2 platforms.
  6. Moderators have different backgrounds to make sure the moderator group is as diverse as possible.
  7. Moderation of Gitlab is important, because there are a big number of issues with trolls, duplicate’s especially when the contributor is not following the CoC.

GNOME University Outreach Program (Saloni)
Reach out to university students.

CHAOSS Metrics working group (Sri)
We have primarily contact with RedHat on ways on how to get good metrics which could help us know how many active people we have and so on.

Volunteer Capture (Sri)
A new initiative on how to get new people involved (especially those) who contribute to conferences such as LAS.

Sri is organizing meetings with 2 other people on what resources we will need in the project and the metrics so we set out to grow the organization and get new people on board to join the community.

Spring Fundraiser (Molly)
https://etherpad.gnome.org/p/spring_fundraiser-2020 the initial plan for the fundraiser. Everyone is free to add ideas. We will introduce charity buttons with around 3 donation option suggestions.

Challenge Update (Melissa)
We have sent out newsletters and shared the challenge in social media.
We have done outreach and received many proposals.
We will need to do some more outreach from the engagement team.

GSoC 2020
Accepted students and projects will be announced on May 4, (that’s about two weeks away).
