According to this mail  posted in Marketing list by a fellow
ambassador and one of the most active Fedora contributor, Chitlesh
Goorah, we were asked to support FEL (Fedora Electronic Lab)
contacting our "local universities (Electronic department, to be
precised), and inform them about Fedora's investment in the electronic
I encourage everyone, especially students (like me), to take some of
their time and working on this small but effective initiative.
The FEL flyer link is http://chitlesh.fedorapeople.org/FEL/10/fel-flyer-f10.pdf
Once again I want to thank all the people who are helping community growning.
This is a reminder for tomorrow, Saturday 6th at 17.00 UTC, FAmSCo IRC
Town Hall .
All Ambassadors (especially FAmSCo candidates) are invited to be there
to discuss about the future of the project and hear candidates plans.
I want to thank Jon Stanley  that volunteers to moderate the discussion.
Hope to see you there with questions, ideas and everything you want to say.

I think we may find a good name on
There is a famous peom 'Saying Goodbye to Cambridge Again' written by
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xu_Zhimo at 1922. Quote from wikipedia:
"To commemorate Xu Zhimo, in July, 2008, a white marble stone has been
installed at the back of King's College, University of Cambridge, on
which is inscribed a verse from Xu's best-known poem, 'Saying Goodbye
to Cambridge Again'."
Since Cambridge is part of a poem, then we can always find a good poem
with a sound title. I'd suggest "Crescent Moon" (of Tagore) because of
the close relationship: Xu Zhimo also started a group called that
name. Also we used "Solar" as artwork theme in Fedora 10.
But this word seems to have been used by another software company, and
a perl module(?), etc. I am not sure about the google result. Also it
have close relationship with Mid-East, isn't it. India people may have
more to say about Tagore.
The Release party in Imphal is only 4 Days to go. We are doing the
advertisement in News Paper and Wall Posters are distributed all over. The
