+           <h2>What is Flock?</h2>

+           <p>Flock is the Fedora Project's annual contributor-focused conference. It alternates between European and North American locations. The conference provides a venue for face to face meetings and conversations.  It is also a place to celebrate our community.</p>

+ 

+           <h2>What will we do at Flock?</h2>

+           <ul>

+               <li align="left"><b>Communicate the Fedora Strategy.</b> Everyone in Fedora should understand and feel well-aligned with the project's goals, both long-term and tactical. We should all understand the messaging we're using to attract new users and contributors.m</li>

+               <li align="left"><b>Plan the Next Strategy.</b> This strategy doesn't come from the top down, or from thin air, and it's not dictated by our sponsors. It comes from the community. Because we're so big and distributed, Flock can't be the only place where we get new ideas, but it is a summit where we present, learn about, and discuss them.</li>

+               <li align="left"><b>Build Community Connections and Engagement.</b> We do amazing work as a global project, but there's no substitute for direct human interaction. Flock helps tie us together. In-person discussion, collaboration, and fun social events help us function better on IRC and mailing lists throughout the year.</li>

+           </ul>

+ 

+           <h2>Who comes to Flock?</h2>

+           <p>While Flock is open to anyone, the majority of talks at Flock are focused on existing contributors and those looking to increase their involvement.  There is almost no solely user-focused content.</p>

+             <p>Topic ideas include:</p>

+             <p>We are accepting proposals as issues in the <a href="https://pagure.io/flock/issues">Flock repository on Pagure</a>.  We are doing this so that you can solicit feedback on your proposal, look for collaborators, and figure out who you need in the room and who will be there.  Specific instructions are in the Pagure repo.</p>

+             <p>Proposals are evaluated in three rounds and must be submitted by the beginning of the final round.  This allows us to confirm talks for speakers sooner than making everyone wait until then end.  This also incentivizes you to submit early :D.  Unselected proposals carry forward to the next round.</p>

DO NOT MERGE THIS YET

Feedback needed from @mattdm and we are waiting on an email alias to be created.

this seems confusing to me.. when is the absolute latest time I can submit a talk?

This looks good to me. @dustymabe: July 15th. Maybe add something like "Submit early for a better chance of acceptance" or something?

We want to be able to tell people who need to arrange travel based on acceptance of a session sooner rather than later. Maybe we should spell that out? I dunno. It actually looks pretty good to me as it is, dusty's confusion not withstanding. :)

something like Final selection starts on: 15 July 2018 (absolute last day for CFP submission)

I've incorporated @dustymabe 's comment and added some of what @mattdm wrote. Barring objections, from them or the webteam/ @robyduck I think this is now ready to be merged.
