During the 1. FAD in december 2006 was a short discussion about the
translation of the CLA. Here is the german version now. Don't worry it's
not my work. A professional translater has done it for me.
Please proofread it. Thanks
I've described in my "hello"-mail that I want to start a discussion about the
status of local forums inside/outside the project and also the contact with
them. There are many international community websites out there . But ATM
their only relationship to the project is that they use fedora. That's a
point you have also noticed in a FAD last year .
So I would like to talk about how to integrate them more into the project,
talk to them and so on. In my opinion forums and esp. local forums are the
users first touch with fedora (besides the installation itself). Of course
only for those that like forums - if they like IRC or mailinglists more they
can use the _official_ irc channels and mailinglists (and also in their
language). But the forums are normally called "community websites" - for
different reasons. But if we (as fedora project not as a lonely ambassador)
can get in contact with them and they get more involved in the project (as a
forum, not as a normal person) this could be a benefit for all of us.
The first question here is if you have already discussed this in the past? If
not it would be a good start to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of
this. I have some ideas for this but first I'd like to hear your opinion. :)
P.S.: If you hink that this question is absolutely wrong on this list, please
say "stop". :)

As you know "firstname.lastname(a)fedoraproject.org" email alias is no
longer used as of last week per Fedora Infrastructure Team. Only
"accountname(a)fedoraproject.org" email alias should be used from now
I understand some of us are still using "firstname.lastname" for your
important contacts and *really* need to continue using this
Thank to Mike McGrath, Fedora Ambassadors Team received a special
permission to make rare exceptions to *only* existing and active
Ambassadors with *good* reason.
Here are some rules for such exceptions:
1) The additional alias for the Ambassadors must be
firstname.lastname(a)fp.o convention if it's absolutely necessary.
2) Exceptions are made by Thomas Chung for the Ambassadors only. He
has the final decision as to whether someone is eligible for the alias
3) Careful precautions must be made to not cause collisions. (This
would include looking out for suspicious aliases like
4) In addition, you must provide a very good reason why you must have
firstnname.lastname email alias.
Once again, we encourage you to use "accountname(a)fedoraproject.org" as
your default email alias but if you must have "firstname.lastname"
alias, please submit your request to me in private with following

as Fedora Ambassador for Chile I have participated in organization of
Flisol in Santiago de Chile. Flisol is Latin american Free software fest
install. This event is a mix of fest install, exhibitions and stands of
free software groups.
This year, Santiago have up 600 persons as visitor, installers and
users( they come with their computers and we install Free Software and
Linux on it).
On event day I was on Fedora stand, showing Fedora Core 6 and Fedora 7
I spoke with 60 people, some Fedora users and other new users. I spoke
about benefits of use Fedora and repaired some problems of the
installers as wireless module support, configuration of some programs
This event was on Informatics engineering Department of Universidad de
Santiago de Chile (USACH). Starting at 11:00AM and ending at 08:00PM.
The users who chose Fedora for installation went to home with a original
Fedora Core 6 DVD. (They was 10 +-).
Soon I will send a link to see pictures of this day.
