Thank you for this info, I'm planning several short presentations about
Fedora Project at the University of Galati, Romania, and I did not know from
where / how to get Fedora 11 CDs / DVDs.
The F12 talking points have been released, and are ready for use (and
improvement!) Many thanks to Steven Moix, Paul Frields, and Jon Roberts
for their hard work.
Talking points (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Talking_points) are key
features of the new release that we want to point out. There are
different types of talking points for different types of people: users,
developers, sysadmins, and more. They are meant to answer the question
"so what cool stuff is in the latest release of Fedora?"
Reading the talking points should get someone who's *not* necessarily
already a member of the Fedora community excited. (This is something
that I think the talking points could still use some help with; which
ones are unclear? Which ones don't get you as excited yet?) Please take
a look at the talking points and think about how you'd like to use them
for F12 outreach - and if you can think of a better way of phrasing
something, or think something should be improved, please let us know (or
use the wiki and just make the change yourself).
Ambassadors in particular: how can we turn these talking points into
marketing materials that will help you spread the word?
I'm not sure about the election history of FAmSCo, maybe someone who
has been around a while can explain how it used to work, but I'm
guessing range voting has been used in the past two FAmSCo elections.
Are ambassadors happy with this method of electing the ambassador
Aside from the voting method, are there other things related to the
election or composition of FAmSCo that ambassadors think would improve
either the process or the constitution of the steering committee?
Hey Max, all,
Ambassadors were discussing in IRC about ordering some Fedora embroidered
baseball caps for event swag, and the general consensus was that the Brand
Fuel caps were really nice, and it would be cool if we could get them ordered
from their manufacturer.
Do you (Max) or anyone on either marketing or ambassadors have any details on
the manufacturer that Brand Fuel uses and how we could get in contact with

OSCON, the O'Reilly Open Source Convention
July 19 - 23, 2010
Oregon Convention Center
Faster, Freer, Smarter: Whatever your Goal, Make It Happen with Open Source
More than 2,500 experts, developers, sys admins, and hackers will meet
up at OSCON 2010 to explore the tools, services, and platforms that
make up the vibrant open source ecosystem. Join us!
The OSCON Call for Participation is now open. If you have winning
techniques, favorite lifesavers, war stories, productivity tips, or
other ideas to share, we want to hear from you. We're especially on
the look-out for ways to do more with less, design and usability best
practices, mobile device innovations, cloud computing,
parallelization, open standards and data, open source in government,
business models, and beyond.
Speak up about the freedom--and opportunity--of open source at OSCON
2010. Submit your proposal by February 1, 2010 at:
