What seems to be a problem?
Have you read http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/AccountSystemHowTo
Today I found an odd situation, I was on a "potential" client talking about Fedora features and he asked me to show him. 3 things passed in my mind:
- I could bring a notebook there (too much time)
- I could get a local computer and install Fedora (too much time)
- I could boot Kadischi in any machine and show him
Here my problem start. In his company I only found MS PCs, there wasn't any CVS program to download Kadischi.
I almost cried. :P
Why not distribute Kadischi through http in any webpage or torrent files?
Thanks in advance,

Hello, my name is Thomas Canniot, i'm 23 and I leave in the North fo
I'm one of the administrator of the French Fedora Community website
(www.fedora-france.org). I'm also translating the wiki into French.
I'm using fedora at home as a simple user.
I'm also member of a French LUG (www.campux.org) and i have a
presentation of Fedora and the Fedora Project planned on the 11th of
April. I will certainly ask for some DVDs, in case there are not enough
in the standard kit.
I had some time to think during my vacation, and here's the idea I got:
Have Fedora enthusiasts around the world produce short videos in media
formats that Fedora supports (including Flash, maybe) and submit them
to a panel of judges and we will post the best ones on
fedora.redhat.com and on wiki, and give the winner a set of schwag (a
t-shirt or two, and whatever new schwag we will have).
If you feel like it is worth pursuing, I will go ahead and draft copy
for the contest and we can call the contest to go with the new
release, or to go with FUDCon in Boston, or something else.
Let me know what you think,
Check out the new content on Fedora Project page! http://fedoraproject.org
Yesterday when I went with new fedora T-shirt to my home, my three yrs old
son started crying that he also need a T-shirt like this. He wept for at
least half an hour and only stopped when I told that I will make this
T-shirt of his size. He told me that all the good things I am only buying
After this episode I thought it won't be bad if we promote our Fedora in the
Nursery-Playgroup kids community. We can contact schools and there we can
say also Tux is the real friend of kids. Tux loves kids! Fedora kids
community! This way we can make impression on several new groups. This is
just an idea erupting after my son started crying and his poor father was
unable to do anything for him :-).
Fedora Ambassadors Meeting 2006-02-09
Next meeting: 2006-02-16 1400 UTC
tchung (meeting lead): ThomasChung
1 Review upcoming events
1.1 solartrooper requests to add Linuxweeks in Austria to FedoraEvents
1.2 We should move past events to FedoraEvents/PastEvents
and we should combine FedoraEvents/PastEvents with FedoraEvents/Archive
we can simply move content of Archive to PastEvents and remove Archive
Also I think we should move any events without owners to HelpWanted/Events
1.3 SCALE 4X (Feb 11-12, 2006) Owner - ThomasChung
Well, good news folks, Warren Togami accepted as a speaker at the
SCALE at the last minute. :)
tchung has added Talk Title in
we haven't received exact schedule yet but I'll post it there as soon
as I hear from SCALE staff. I believe Warren will provide his
prenstation so they can post on their site and our site.
1.4 Fedora Day (Feb 25, 2006) Owner - ThijsHulshof
ThijsHulshof not here to report on Fedora Day
1.5 FOSDEM (Feb 25-26, 2006) Onwer - FredericHornain
FredericHornain not present
1.6 Jornada Software Libre y Aplicaciones (Mar 13-16, 2006) Owner -
JoseTarazona not present
tchung received email from JoseTarazona via list: "Conferences about
research projects, topics about open source sofware and
telecomunications, ideas, experiences and results from projects around
the country in many univesities."

meeting.He'll give us update on FUDCon Boston 2006 (Apr 7, 2006) at
the time as well
1.9 nman64: Oh, a quick note about PyCon: In Addison, Texas, it is a
relatively small event, and does have a registration fee. The total
cost for me to get there and participate makes it, IMHO, not worth
bothering with. (Addison is in the Dallas area, BTW.)
1.10 FISL 7.0 (Apr 19-22, 2006) Owner - RodrigoPadula
RodrigoPadula not present
1.11 German Linuxtag 2006 (May 3-6, 2006) Owner - GeroldKassube

GeroldKa: Yesterday I met Florian Brand aka BruderTux and we discussed
a lot of things, also the FUDCon which will be organised from
BruderTux. Have a look at
We'll organise a lot of and we think we'll fill a 50 square meter stall
1.12 solartrooper: Austria has a bit another concept of "Linuxdays":
we have the countrywide linuxweeks, which always begin about May and
go until June. date of the first dissertation isn't fixed right now,
but will come soon
As soon as solartrooper has details, he'll add them to the FedoraEvents page.
ChitleshGoorah: I really need support for the FedoraLibrary project. I
tried to launch discussions in the list. But nothing. I feel no one
is interested to work it out
tchung thought the owner of Fedora Education Project is interested
William: ChitleshGoorah, i'm new here but I could help you in France ...
ChitleshGoorah has scheduled a meeting with the directory of his Uni
to launch it here in Strasbourg
tchung: ChitleshGoorah, if you send me some introduction of your
project, I'll post in my next FWN.

Alex will report at the next meeting
5 ChitleshGoorah: Does the Steering Commitee (famsco) discuss among
themselves or on the list?
tchung: Yes, FAMSCO has a list called famsco-list(a)redhat.com. It is
private list. If you have any request or suggestion to FAMSCO, please
email me and I'll forward to them. :)
nman64: Or, post to the Ambassador list, as all SC members watch it.
6.1 tchung won't include FreeMedia in the Schedule until he has a more
sold idea and more participants
6.2 EVERYBODY: Note that we cannot perform any fundraising activities
at this time and so we cannot sell anything at events!
6.3 Getting your own Fedora Project Email address is important for All
solartrooper: do I have to use GPG for getting an account?
nman64: Yes, you'll have to have a GPG key to get the account set up.
7 Presentations for Ambassadors
We need to provide Ambassadors with some slide decks for various
presentations. We should probably aggregate the ones we already have
and make them available. We should also figure out our policy for
licensing these presentations!
tchung thought Rahul was working on *Official* or *Standard* slides for us
We'll need contributors to complete the CLA (as all Ambassadors
should), and will probably be licensing them using the OPL without
8 Standard Ambassadors kit
this is either already done or Greg is still working it :)
The content of the kits is just about finalized, but production and
distribution will still take time.
Greg will be back to give us update on Standard Ambassadors kit in the
At present, it looks unlikely that shirts will be part of the standard
kit, but will be available for < $10 USD to Ambassadors.
The *current* plan is to include reasonable quantities of install DVDs.
We're having to watch production costs, so that really isn't feasible right now.
Next meeting: 2006-02-16 1400 UTC
* SCALE: Fedora Booth at Southern California Linux Expo
The 4th Annual Southern California Linux Expo (http://socallinuxexpo.org) also known as
SCALE 4X was a successful event for Linux Community. According to SCALE-announce mailing
list, Over 700 people came in the first day alone, and as a result the Expo floor was
busy and all four speaker tracks were well attended. Thomas Chung, Eric Hattemer and
Warren Togami were present at the Fedora Booth for two days (Feb 11-12) to answer any
question on Fedora Project as well as distributing Fedora Project Overview Handouts,
Fedora Core 4 DVDs and Fedora Project T-Shirts.
* SCALE: Fedora Presentation at Southern California Linux Expo
Warren Togami also gave a talk on what Fedora is about, why it is important to the
future of Open Source Software, and how you can get involved. The presentation slides
are available in Fedora Presentations page.
Here is a behind-the-story. It was only a few days before the event opening day, when I
noticed one of speakers canceled the talk so I contacted SCALE to find out if we can use
the spot for Fedora Project. Within minutes, SCALE responded and Warren accepted the
invitation. Since it was added in the last minute, his talk information was not included
in the printed schedule but the online schedule was updated in time and his talk was
announced well before his presentation. Also it was mentioned numerous time in the
Fedora Booth by the Fedora Representatives.
You can find few pictures in the latest issue of FWN and my Blog. :)
today I've had a very small spare time because waiting for an download of
approx. 2 GB :-) and so I decided to have a look on the "other Open-Source
Project" called OpenSuSE ...
Please have also yourself a look at http://en.opensuse.org/Events
where these people will attend. I don't know their programm but I think
it's never too bad to have a look, on which events the oponent will
