I am wondering if our community leaders (Paul, Max, Greg, anyone else)
might have one or two books they recommend that bear in important ways
on community management that might be of interest to ambassadors?
Please share if you do as I need some winter reading.
I wanted to share that the team SFD2008 Nicaragua has been awarded as
best event world wide . I posted a short note after the event
saying that Fedora Project was highly visible because all 64 computers
on the event were running fedora. That was 40 computers at the
workshops, 15 computers at the game area, 8 computers for registration
and 1 more for the conference hall. Most of them also have a fedora
sticker on the border of the display.
best regards to all of you.

Andrew Hutton caught me online earlier today and asked if Fedora would
be interested in hosting a conference of any size, to run concurrent
with the Linux Symposium (previously held in Ottawa) in Montreal 13-17
July 2009). Plenty of space is available for a 2-day concurrent
conference, and he's working on chartered busses from several (nearby)
cities such as Boston, Ottawa, and Toronto to ease getting to
This wouldn't be a Fedora 12 planning FUDCon as we've traditionally
had such, given that mid-July is pretty late for such assuming we get
back to our May 1 / October 31 release schedule. But it could be an
opportunity for Fedora-specific side-tracks to LS, or a hackfest, or
any number of ways to use the time and space. If we had 2 days and
space for 100+ people in Montreal that week,, how could we use it?
I'd like an interested Ambassador to step up and volunteer to run such
an event. Volunteers?
After the FAD EMEA 2007 we changed the concept for Fedora Ambassadors
Meeting. Separate meetings per region, only monthly meeting in EMEA,
and so... After a year I think this was good decision. Especially for
North America ;-)
Some of you can remember that I was the meeting leader for the
Ambassadors Meeting for EMEA during the last year. My schedule has
changed and now I'm looking for a successor.
Your duty will be to lead the meeting, sending for a reminder in front
of the meeting, make a wiki page, keep the log, and if possible to send
a summary to the mailing list. That's all ;-)
If you want the job, add your name to the Ambassadors meeting page 
and lead your first meeting at 2008-12-17.

Dear EMEA Ambassadors,
Because there are many Ambassadors who want polo shirts, but who cannot
attend the events where we distribute them, we have decided to appoint
individual country leaders as the distribution points for the shirts.
The Fedora French community is a good example -- it is easiest to ship
all the polo shirts for the French community to one Ambassador in
France, and let him distribute them at local events. This saves a lot
of money on cross-border shipping costs also.
For this to work, it is necessary that you organize yourself a bit
inside your country, to declare one Ambassador of each country as
responsible. This Ambassador is in charge for collecting the money and
shipping the Poloshirts inside his country and for providing the money
and a shipping address to us. The Money Transfer will processed over the
Fedora EMEA e.V. The WikiPage is prepared - what do you all think?

When setting up the upcoming elections, based on participant requests,
I announced we would have some IRC Town Halls, for each of the groups
being elected, between Thursday December 4 and Saturday December 6.
I'd like to propose each group have at least one, and if the group so
wishes, two, such town halls. If two, schedule them at somewhat
opposite times of day to allow greatest community participation in at
Schedule: non-overlapping, first-come-first-serve by the groups. I've
put up a placeholder schedule for the Board town halls, subject to
revision based on availability of the nominees.
Committee chairs: please discuss with your nominees the best times
they are available, and schedule on the wiki page  accordingly.
Moderators: consider this a call for moderators. If you would like to
moderate one or more sessions, please contact me directly. Moderators
will take questions from the -public IRC channel, ask them in the
-townhall channel, and try to keep the conversations on topic.
I've set up two IRC rooms on FreeNode:
#fedora-townhall - moderator and those running for election may speak,
anyone else can read.
#fedora-townhall-public - anyone can speak. Questions asked here may
be presented by the moderator in
(all current nominees have been bcc'd)
This is to let you know all that, we are organizing Fedora 10 Release
Party, in Kathmandu, Nepal today.
I will be writing more (reporting) about it after the event. As I have
not yet added my blog in planet fedora, I'll share the link when I
update my blog.
Hey Ambassadors!I'm giving away DVD copys of Fedora 10 Install Media and
Live Media at Tomodachi Fest inside the Holiday Inn Convention Center!
I just have one question!
What would be good trivia to ask people to get a DVD?
I'll be there if any one is interested Tonight, Tomorrow, and Sunday anytime
the Dealer's Room is open! (kid with the red hair and Fedora badge on)
