Subject [jira] [Commented] (TRAINING-5) Donation: Github challenges

Isabel Drost-Fromm commented on TRAINING-5:
-------------------------------------------

> hard time understanding this[1]

 

[~clr] Seeing your output there helped me remember how the svg was generated:

 

After receiving a template in a Google Doc, I created the actual graphic in the middle in
said Google Doc, but had trouble with layout. Subsequently I switched to using Inkscape for
editing (that's where svg is coming from: [https://inkscape.org/develop/about-svg/] ). However
back at the time I had trouble exporting the graphic that was still residing in Google Docs
to any sort of vector graphic - even a copied over screen shot would print more clearly than
what I could achieve even by printing to original doc directly.

 

I checked again today and found an export option for the graphic in the middle to svg - that's
attached now.

 

About to Octocat, [~jmclean] I've put you in touch with the contact at Github that shared
the original generator with me. Please take the legal discussions from there, that should
be more efficient than guessing here (or keeping me as the intermediary, as it looks like
this involves getting two people at the same table that have more legal understanding than
myself.)

> For context - this is following Lars' idea there: [https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/66636f8402426143a81b5bf5070a5b6957d2b5e63284f9ee06dabc82@%3Cdev.training.apache.org%3E]
to simply open a Jira issue for to-be-donated-content. I'm happy to have the process created,
refined and refactored while we go through it. I think it makes sense to do so with a guinea
pig to try things out, happy to be that guinea pig myself.
> Actual donation context: At my dayjob we are currently in the process of lifting company
knowledge about development processes with Git and GitHub. As for several projects Inner Source
best practices were adopted ([http://innersourcecommons.org)|http://innersourcecommons.org)/]
we aren't that far from the Apache Way internally.
> One way we are currently trying is to raise awareness of the various Git/Github features
through challenges/ riddles posted close to the coffee machine.
> Essentially those challenges are simply svg files that you can print and fill in. As
such I think they might make for a good sandbox to develop our content donation processes
in a test first way.
> Currently all challenges are employer-branded. Happy to drop that/ have that white-labeled.
> Kudos to [https://davidrehman.de/] for helping me out with his design skills - he helped
arrange the sheets in a way that looked much less clumsy than my own first try and still kept
space for a Monalisa Octocat.
> Caveat: Graph was inspired by Gitlab's Git cheat-sheet.
