CentOS Promotion SIG
The CentOS Promotion SIG exists to help promote CentOS both at physical events, and online.
While it is not a tradition SIG, in the sense that we do not produce software packages, we organize ourselves as a SIG because that structure has been shown to be an effective way of getting things done.
Find ways to make CentOS more visible on the Internet, in communities and at events, by:
Being present at as many events as possible throughout the world
- Producing, or assisting other people to produce, CentOS Dojos, to promote local user communities
Creating and encouraging people to give presentations about CentOS
- Designing flyers, stickers, posters and other wares for use at events, or to send to community members
Joining the varios CentOS groups on social networks, and using that platform to promote CentOS
Provide a CentOS newsletter to communicate to the community
For a progress overview of various tasks, have a look at our current TODO page. (Woefully outdated, and needs to be updated.)
The CentOS Promo SIG mailinglist is open and can be joined freely. SIG members are appointed by the SIG team leader, and maintain certain resources related to the SIG (e.g. documentation in the Wiki).
