The larger a project gets, the more important it is to communicate changes in a structured way. This talk gives attendees considerations for managing changes in their own projects like: Why have a change proposal system? What are the benefits and drawbacks? What is important to track? Who should be involved?

I’ll cover Fedora’s approach to managing changes and how it has changed over the years. I’ll share the benefits and drawbacks of Fedora’s approach and give historical examples of successes and failures. I will also address how Fedora’s approach can be used in smaller projects and where a different approach is better.

Attendees will come away with the ability to create or update the change process for their own community projects.
