I'm a Fedora ambassador from Chennai, India. I was wondering whether I
could get my hands on a Fedora T-shirt (of course, I'd pay for it)
here. If I can, can someone suggest where? And if not can someone
direct me to some design which I can use for printing my own?

I've been organizing the EMEA Ambassadors IRC meetings for a while now,
and while I am certainly going to continue to attend them, I wonder if
perhaps someone else within our EMEA community would like to take a turn
at putting together the agendas and leading the meetings.
We're due to have our next one pretty soon (probably should be next
Wednesday) but I will be in the USA all next week and unable to attend
Seems like it might be a good time to let a volunteer in the community
step up and take charge.
These meetings represent an opportunity to have our Ambassadors across
the region stay in communication with each other, discuss budget issues
and resource issues, and also coordinate their efforts, so that we can
feel like a larger team and not a few pockets of people in different
Anyone want to step up and make next week's meeting happen?
There have also been a few requests to hold EMEA meetings
every-other-week -- one meeting per month focusing on events and
logistics, and the other focusing on one specific question or project
that is important to the region.
It's obvious that I haven't had the time to make that happen, but with
some community leadership from Ambassadors who have things they would
like to discuss, it easily could.
It's important to me to make sure that we continue to keep our core
group of EMEA ambassadors strong, while also growing new leadership and
contributions throughout this very large region.
In Egypt, for example, we've got a growing team of Ambassadors who are
doing fantastic work, and I hope we can include them in our EMEA
meetings and discussions more than we have in the past (which has just
been me sending them resources). I'd like to cut myself out as the
middle man and continue to grow a team of volunteers in the region who
are all helping each other out.
and maybe your plannings :-)

Unlike previous editions, and thanks to a closer collaboration of our
benevolent host (the ULB), we are able to already announce the date of
the upcoming FOSDEM, which will be held on the weekend of the 6 and 7

This will also be its 10th anniversary (we include the first edition
that was still called "OSDEM" ;)).
The timeline for submitting developer room and stand requests will be

I'm a big fan of FOSS and have been looking for some communities to get
involved in. Since the past few months I've been becoming enraptured with
Fedora and wanted to become a contributing member.
I'm a Java engineer, having specialized in web application development for
the past few years. I currently work for Booz Allen Hamilton in the
Washington DC metro area. I've started my Wiki profile (
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Theandruu) but there's not much other
than the basics at the moment.
As I said, I'm looking for ways to become more active, so I heartily welcome
suggestions. Some of the things I hope to get out of this is to meet other
people in the community, to learn more skills / become expert in them, to
help expand the project's client base, and maybe even contribute some code.
I asked Ben Williams to sponsor me and I plan on spamming this message to
the marketing group as well, so I ask those in both groups to forgive the
Somthing that it's time to think about is refreshing our supplies of
Fedora swag in the EMEA region.
Things that we have:
* Buttons -- there are a bunch of these in the hands of the Greek
Ambassadors, that we should distribute to different parts of EMEA, for
people who are doing events.
Things that we should make more of:
Fedora EMEA e.V. can help pay some costs of these items, as can I
directly from the Fedora budget. But we need Ambassadors to step up and
take charge of getting things produced. This can be the same people who
have done it in the past, or new people who want to volunteer for an
The goals are simple:
(1) Get agreement on something to produce.
(2) Produce it at a reasonable price.
(3) Spread it around to key Ambassadors throughout the region who can
then act as distribution points.
I think that Q3 (Starting September 1) will be a good time to invest
some money into these sorts of things, which gives us a little over a
month to sort it out.
Just my $.02.
