[openFATE 312178] Enhance events page in connect to be used for planning
Feature changed by: Jos Poortvliet (jospoortvliet)
Feature #312178, revision 3
Title: Enhance events page in connect to be used for planning

openSUSE Infrastructure: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Jos Poortvliet (jospoortvliet)
Partner organization:

openSUSE ambassadors currently use a wiki page like this one
( to collaborate.
However making one is a chore and for many ambassadors simply difficult
- neither their English nor their wiki fu make it very accessible to
them. However, connect is easy! It just misses the ability to make a
list of names & information, editable by anyone who attends: - who will
bring what materials? - who will arrive when and leave when? - who
needs travel support? - who will help with the booth? - who will give a

- - easier adding of comments to userpages on Connect (feature/id:
- 312158)
+ - Allow commenting on events in Connect (feature/id: 312177)
+ - Add gallery functionality to connect event pages (feature/id: 312183)
+ - adding some input fields to the connect event page (feature/id:
+ 312179)

Use Case:
If you organize an event, you need to coordinate a few things with the
others who come. Knowing that ppl "attend" is not enough!
You need to know if they will bring any; in what capacity they attend
(just visitor or help with the booth and/or give a talk); when people
arrive and leave; and if they need travel support so you can discuss
that with the openSUSE marketing team and/or the board/sponsors.

Business case (Partner benefit): This negates the need for a wiki page for events and will
make it far easier for ambassadors to plan their events on openSUSE
infrastructure in a way that is visible to the outside world (eg
potential visitors or other ambassadors who could help)!
