+ * *Hackfests*:

+   See https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/tag/council-hackfest-2019/[Matthew Miller's four-part report] about the November 2019 Council hackfest.

+   https://pagure.io/Fedora-Council/tickets/issue/331[Fedora-Council/tickets#331] also shows an example of the planning for a hackfest.

+ * *Council meetings*:

+   Sometimes https://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/sresults/?group_id=council&type=team[in text], sometimes https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0x39xti0_64uSci6Wqk_E-IMSyq6vEuE[on video].

+ * *Synergies and collaborations*:

+   See https://pagure.io/Fedora-Council/tickets/issue/306[Fedora-Council/tickets#306], which discussed renaming the dist-git default branch from `master` to `main`.

+   This only represents one small part of the (publicly archived) conversation, but there is more behind-the-scenes work that involves talking to other members of the Fedora Community.

+   Another example is https://pagure.io/Fedora-Council/tickets/issue/335[Fedora-Council#335], which was a proposal for the link:{FWIKI}/Objectives/CommunityOutreachRevamp[Fedora Community Outreach Revamp].

+   While not explicitly a diversity, equity, and inclusion topic, there is an opportunity for the Council Advisor to share constructive feedback to up-and-coming initiatives within the Fedora Community.

+ There are fewer concrete examples of what meeting responsibilities to the Fedora Community looks like.

+ This is deeply personal and varies between Council Advisors.

+ It is also a unique opportunity to take a creative spin to how each Council Advisor approaches the role.

+ There is always room for new ideas and approaches on how to best serve the needs of the Fedora Community and encourage inclusion across Fedora.
