So, no reply for now. Is all ok?
Let me know, just to adress better tomorrow FAmSCo meeting.
Fedora-ambassadors-list mailing list
Clint and I were discussing some of the upcoming release issues and he
came up with the idea of having an F10 release shirt available.
So I am announcing the proposal and 1) trying to gauge interest in the
proposal. and 2) Solicit input for the proposal.
Clint, in conjunction with at least one member of the art team will be
working on the artwork.
Feel free to continue this thread with ideas or just flood Clint on irc :)
So are you interested in having t-shirts for release events?
If so, how would you have them look?
- Actually we have 18 release events listed in
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents/ReleaseParty/F10 (if you
have put your event only in FedoraEvents page, please list in F10
Release Parties page too).
- We have assigned the required budget for Q3 Release Events (for Q4
assignment wait until December).
- We received logo usage permission for the Release Map (see
- According to http://poelstra.fedorapeople.org/schedules/f-10/f-10-art-tasks.html
F10 Release Parties posters work is set from Tue 2008-11-18 to Tue
2008-11-25. Just my Big thanks with the whole Art Team!
- confirm events schedule
- Ask owners/attendees/community is everything is ok (if no, try to help them)
- Search for writers that want to try to promote F10 Release Events
through the FWN, Fedora Announce
Just my last thought.
Remember, the first thing you have to keep in mind is: Enjoy, Enjoy,
Enjoy. That's the most important, if not necessary, priority task you
have to keep in mind.
If you think there is something that it isn't working, please let us
know and, stay sure, we will help you.

The appropriate information for the Philadelphia PA USA release party is now in the wiki in the additional places.
GPG key: FAF1751E
In the US, what are the SWAG options? I will need stickers and T-Shirts for
an event in December 2008.
Past threads have said to have shirts produced locally (whoever has the "I
'heart' Fedora" T-Shirts please email me off list so I can get several of
But stickers and other promotionals?
Is there an existing wiki page with a basic "how to" for swag items?
ANyone know where to get branded USB flash keys? They would need to be 2GB

inode0 was roped into leading the meeting.
* Conference Planning
There was extensive discussion concerning the Linux Symposium in
Montreal next summer and the possibility of organizing a Fedora
conference in conjunction with it, possibly the F12 FUDcon. We will
contact our Canadian ambassadors to see if they can take ownership
of this event. Brian Powell will if they are unable to.
We then discussed planning for a site for the F12 FUDcon more generally.
Some sites that have been mentioned include Indianapolis, Chicago, Salt
Lake City, Austin or Dallas, and Clemson. Paul Frields joined us to lay
a foundation so we better understand the FUDcon planning process and its
expectations. This was immensely helpful. Thanks Paul. We will continue
to develop potential sites and keep Paul and Max Spevack informed.
Additionally we discussed making sure there was a good Fedora presence
at the inaugural Southeast LinuxFest (SELF) next summer. This could be
a potential FUDcon site or possibly a site for FADNA or something else.
We are going to begin thinking about how and where to hold future FADNA
* Task List Items
Event Box Update from Clint Savage. We have received tremendously
positive feedback about the first Event Box and Clint has done some
major updates to the wiki about the Event Boxes. A log book was suggested
to be included or perhaps on the wiki for reporting about the adventures
of each box. Clint also updated us on the development of a transfer
policy to help these boxes travel smoothly from event to event.
Q3 funding and media acquisition was touched on. We will follow up on
these with the relevant parties to get this all straight in the next
week or two.
* Open Floor
Clint raised the question of how to more effectively process requests
from ambassadors for various sorts of swag. Some discussion followed
and Clint will work on setting up something on the wiki we can refer
folks to for more information.
Clint also pointed out the new columns on Fedora Events page which will
support requesting and reporting about the event boxes in the future.
David Nalley raised the issue of further dividing the US so that the
workload/responsibilities can be spread out more. Some discussion of this
followed and we will revisit this subject at a future meeting.
I would again like to thank all the participants, especially the new
ambassadors joining us for the first time tonight.
I would like to know when the next SA meeting will be held.
In the Ambassadors page, there is a date quite old.
