Am organising an install fest in my university on januray 27 i figured that
creating multiple install media would burn a hole in my pocket, so am
planning to set up a network install i was wondering if there are some
common problems that one encounters doing that.. if there are, then can
someone point them out to me and possible solutions...

Ladies and gentlemen !
Don't you remember there is an EMEA Ambassador meeting next Wednesday
(Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) on #fedora-meeting ?
day : Wednesday, January 16th, 2008
Time : 20:OO UTC (check
to know your own time depending on your countries)
Channel : #fedora-meeting
Meeting agenda (add your topic before the meeting please) :
So, if you're an EMEA ambassador, this meeting is for YOU! Update your
agendas, and don't forget to join us.
2 other reminders will be sent tomorrow and Wednesday mornings, but
that's not a good reason to update your agenda now.
Per a discussion with a couple people in #fudcon today, I am sending out an email regarding a
discussion that was held at FUDCon this weekend.
One of the first sessions I attended was the "Getting your parents to use Fedora" session, which
discussed techniques and ideas for helping your family members and friends successfully install and
We had quite a lively discussion and a few good ideas were brought up from this discussion. Because
of this, I've started a wiki page at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraFamily to help collaborate
on this issue.
If you were involved in this discussion, or would like to participate, I would appreciate your help...

Sorry for being unpolite now, but why the hell don't you ask the people on
the ambassadors list? Maybe I should ask here and now, whether we can merge
devel-list with the marketing-list as well? ;-)
Please DO NOT MERGE the lists, we need a low-traffic (?) list for all the
ambassadors which only belongs to the ambassadors. Marketing is important;
yes and blah-foo and all the other arguments, but I mostly don't care about
the marketing stuff. I'm only less interested about this and that article
of Fedora in newspapers/magazines/websites/... - maybe others are thinking
so as well.
My 0.1 cent for a possible merge of the lists: -1000 :)
Hi all --
Newbie ambassador here with a quick question.
It appears that the majority of events that have been listed in the
Fedora Events by ambassadors are fairly large ones. I'll be attending a
BarCamp next month and will suggest leading a discussion on Fedora, if
there is interest, but I am not sure whether to list this on Fedora events.
Any thoughts regarding this would be appreciated!

Hi there Ambassadors and Marketing folks:
So, a few things that I would like to clarify now that the news about
the changes in Fedora leadership is public, as well as some additional
words about the role we are hoping Jack can fill.
(1) FOSDEM and LinuxTag: A bunch of DVDs are on their way to Gerold,
as well as some funding for some specific expenses tha thave been talked
about. Paul and I need to have a discussion (and Paul needs to think
about his own schedule) and figure out his travel plans. LinuxTag is
not until May or June, and I think Paul should definitely plan to go to
that -- it was an excellent show last year, and the opportunity to
connect with the Ambassadors in Europe is 100% worth the cost of the
trip. As for FOSDEM, that is much sooner, so I should just leave that
to Paul to address.
There is travel money in my budget for the FPL to make 2 trips overseas
per year for Fedora-related activities. I spent a little bit too much
money at LinuxTag last year (as you recall, Fedora took care of the bill
for the hostel for all the Ambassadors), so the total budget is a little
bit less this year, but it is enough for two trips. Until we get Paul
officially into Red Hat and in control of his own funds, I will spend
that money on his behalf and with his input.
(2) The FAMSCO elections, FAMSCO chair, and Jack.
I have received a few private emails asking me how Jack's new role
impacts Ambassadors and FAMSCO.
The elections that you just finished for FAMSCO as well as the
voting/decision that FAMSCO made on who the Chair should be is a result
that should not, and will not be changed.
Over the past years, there has always been someone within Red Hat who
has been the "go to person" for the Ambassadors group in terms of
getting budget, swag, organizational help, etc. For a while it was
Greg. Alex Maier has helped with that over time. During my time as
Fedora Project Leader, I did most of this. Now we want Jack to be that
person. So FAMSCO should continue to operate. Jack and FAMSCO should
work together on a variety of things:
* increasing the size of the Ambassadors project
* encouraging and promoting leadership throughout the world
* continuing to help in North America, Europe, and Brazil, where we have
particularly strong ambassadors communitites
* Identifying problems with Ambassadors and being a leader and advisor
in resolving them.
In summary: the community leadership that is in place is exactly what we
want, and it must continue to thrive. Jack's job is to be your FIRST
point of contact in Red Hat when you need something. Paul, myself,
Greg, the names you already know -- we will also continue to support and
(3) For the marketing guys, the same general theme that is expressed
above is true for the non-Ambassador marketing parts of Fedora. We want
Jack to be a facilitator, a liason between the community and Red Hat,
and to work alongside the community leaders to make Fedora marketing
more efficient, more on-message, etc.
I expect Jack to attend Marketing and Ambassadors meetings, and the
Fedora Board should ask Jack for frequent updates on these two critical
parts of the Fedora Project.
Any questions -- feel free to email. Let's try to have the discussion

Also I would like to thank Toshio for providing Fedora Voting System.
If it's at all possible, I'd like to organize a get-together for the
Lebanon Ambassadors so we can determine what we can do to push Fedora
forward in Lebanon. If you're a Lebanon Ambassador, please send me a
