For every CFP process we are participating in, a CFP issue is created with details about the event, requirements for CFP submissions and any other relevant information that might be useful to potential speakers. The issue template contains guide on the necessary steps needed to ensure we keep track of all the submissions for each CFP.
Once a submission has been submitted, the author should add it to the CFP Library. This will allow us to repurpose CFPs efficiently.
All submissions, accepted talks, feedback and other result tracking happens in the CFP issue. The CFP workflow uses scoped labels to transition the issues through different stages. Please follow the CFP workflow handbook to apply required labels accordingly.
All issues with the
CFP label appear on the dedicated CFP Issue board.
