+ = Fedora Appreciation Week

+ 

+ Fedora Appreciation Week is an annual event organized by the Fedora xref:index.adoc[Community Operations] (CommOps) team.

+ Fedora Appreciation Week, abbreviated as FAW, is a week-long event to celebrate efforts of Fedora Project contributors and to say "thank you" to each other.

+ FAW is normally held on the week of November 6th to coincide with the https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-announce-list/2003-November/msg00000.html[anniversary] of the Fedora Project.

+ 

+ 

+ == What is it?

+ 

+ The https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UCADay[Ubuntu Community Appreciation Day] inspired CommOps to organize a similar event of appreciation for contributors who make the Fedora community what it is.

+ This includes all types of contributors: development, design, infrastructure, marketing, engineering, and more.

+ During the week, anyone is encouraged to select an individual or a group of contributors to thank for their efforts in Fedora.

+ Appreciation can be given as an IRC karma cookie, a short note of thanks on a mailing list, or a longer form of appreciation (e.g. a https://happinesspackets.fedorainfracloud.org/[Fedora Happiness Packet]),

+ 

+ 

+ == Why do it?

+ 

+ Most Fedora contributors do not get to work together in the same building or office.

+ Our daily interactions are usually in text form (e.g. IRC, emails, wikis, etc.).

+ Even though these work well and we accomplish our goals, we lose touch with the human side of contributing.

+ Fedora contributors aren’t robots, but real people!

+ Fedora Appreciation Week is a chance to remember the Fedora community is a community of people, and to thank our colleagues and friends who might be halfway across the room or halfway across the planet.

+ 

+ 

+ == How to participate

+ 

+ Different ways to participate in Fedora Appreciation Week are explained below.

+ Consider using one or many of the methods below to participate.

+ 

+ === Write a Contributor Story

+ 

+ https://pagure.io/fedora-commops/contributor-stories[Contributor Stories] are just that: the record of our best moments with our Fedora friends.

+ The story can be about our work in Fedora or something personal or unique which you would like to share with the community.

+ Selected stories will be shared on the Community Blog every day during Fedora Appreciation Week.

+ 

+ See some https://pagure.io/fedora-commops/contributor-stories/issues?status=all[examples] and consider https://pagure.io/fedora-commops/contributor-stories/new_issue[writing one of your own].

+ 

+ === Submit and vote on your favorite community pictures

+ 

+ More coming soon (see https://pagure.io/fedora-commops/issue/110#comment-531973[discussion]).

+ 

+ === Send a Fedora Happiness Packet

+ 

+ Happiness Packets are public or private notes of thanks you can send as emails to other contributors.

+ The Fedora Happiness Packets website was created as https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/happiness-packets-fedora-gsoc-2018/[part of GSoC 2018] and is based off of https://www.happinesspackets.io/[happinesspackets.io]].

+ The Fedora-hosted version supports signing in with the Fedora Account System.

+ During Fedora Appreciation Week, you can earn a Fedora Badge by sending a message of gratitude or thanks to another contributor.

+

This pull request adds a new page to our docs site to explain and introduce Fedora Appreciation Week. It will be a reference place we can begin to point people to and hopefully build on as we go. It currently explains the ways someone can participate now.

Just one minor suggestion. Change:

contributors who make Fedora and its community what it is

to

contributors who make the Fedora community what it is

After that (or if you decide you don't like this change and refuse to make it), it looks good to me and you can merge.
