Yes, the Ambassador Meeting has been cancelled as said by Alex.
But however the vFUDCon which I talked about in the place of the
Ambassador meeting is still scheduled.
The meeting time, Ill leave it to 14:00 UTC on this Thursday (since
this week's Ambassador Meeting was supposed to be 14:00 UTC)
On the schedule:
- the future of subprojects of Marketing, such as FedoraLibraries,
- test of DejaVu fonts
- about various problems/difficulties encountered by ambassadors
- suggestions for improvement
- and perhaps discuss about the marketing of Fedora Core 6
PatrickBarnes, is it possible for you to talk about the usage of
"Fedora" for launching Fedora projects ? Recently we talked about that
in another ML, it would be good to summarize it in 4 or 5 lines.
If you have something in mind that you want to discuss, please post it
in the thread, we will have it on the Schedule.
A new font has been proposed as the Fedora Core 6 default font. So far
the discussion has focused on the technical aspects, and only our Greek
users have told us what they thought of the font actual style.
To have a more comprehensive view of what the whole Fedora userbase
thinks, we're launching a font testing campaign. The following message
will be sent to the English Fedora lists in a few hours is no one on
this list objects:
Dear Fedora user,
A new font is being proposed as the Fedora Core default font. It
probably impacts your language. Please tell us what you think about it:
We're asking the Fedora Ambassadors to relay the message in every local
Fedora community so we get a good round of feedback. For example I've
translated the wiki page in French:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/fr_FR/Polices/EvaluezDejavu and I hope our
french-speaking members will make good use of this material.
Our Greek members have suggested every ambassador completes the table on
the following wiki page after the testing:
If you feel you can't endorse the font for a particular langage, please
link there the DejaVu bugzilla entries which are blockers in your
opinion. This way we'll know which parts of the font need to be
blacklisted before Fedora ships it, and follow the upstream fix process.
If you have any question don't hesitate to mail me or put it in
Remember that even if we don't finish the testing in time, or if we find
more problems than the DejaVu project can fix before the FC6 deadline, a
post-release update would still be possible (don't tell the Greeks this
- they'll skin me if the font doesn't make FC6 ;) )
>From the last few months we are trying to deploy LINUX in a remote
school in my area through my LUG. Now we are going for LTSP there.
I need a list of probable education tools (for junior students )
available in extras repository. Trying to build a syllabus for them.
Sometimes I am confused when I am writing to the list. Now I have a
thinking - should the language we use on the Ambassadors list be
informal or rather formal? Sometimes, it is quite inconvienient when I
write the posts without any abbreviations etc. And here is the question,
and the idea thereby -- maybe let's start using informal language and
feel free to use any abbreviations, slang etc. I think it would make
communication on the list much easier and make us closer ;) What do you
think about that?
