On 14-16 April 2007 theres an ICT Week event at PETRONAS University of
Technology (UTP), MohdIzharFirdaus (me) was representing Fedora there
at our LUG booth on 15-16 April ..
The booth was a success and I managed to distribute 50 Fedora 6 DVDs
among students and some staff in UTP .. besides Fedora , 50 Ubuntu
Ultimate was also distributed by a Ubuntu group in our LUG ... we also
promoted to the visitors our local mirror of the Fedora & Ubuntu
repositories - to help them to adopt linux
not much activity was being done besides explaining to people who
stopped at our booth about Linux and Free / Open Source Softwares,
showing alternatives softwares that FOSS can provide etc ... I also
distributed more than 150 flyers/brochures about Fedora & Fedora
Project ... as expected, Beryl always impress people ...
The students generally shows lots of interest about both of the
Distro .. 2 of them actually came back on the second day of the booth
saying that they installed fedora on their desktop ... and I can see
more members in our #linux channel of our LAN IRC network ..
** Problems faced **
* trying to explain about how to install fedora to the people who dont
understand the word "partitioning" ... I couldnt find a way to explain
this to them and how to do it ... for those who understood
partitioning and how to do it, i just told them to create 10GB of
unallocated space and let anaconda handle the partitioning

Why do we want to "shake people that do nothing"? What harm do they do?
And what's to say that someone who does nothing today won't be someone who
does something vitally important later? And what's your threshhold for
"activity" -- somebody says "I'm active"?
The *only* effect of *any* inactivity policy will be to announce to
people, "we don't want you, go away."
My $0.02: once somebody says "I am a Fedora ambassador," then they are a
Fedora ambassador, FOR LIFE. Until (a) they say "no thanks, I'm not an
ambassador anymore," or (b) they do something that disgraces Fedora, and
FAMSCO drums them out.
So let me back up and ask a question. What's the *real* goal here?
Is the goal to recognize our best ambassadors?
Is the goal to know who can be "counted upon" to get stuff done?
What are we trying to accomplish with the active/inactive proposal?
