I would like to take the opportunity to make you all aware of all the
SIGs and Sub-groups we have within the Fedora Project see:
In particular I had a call for help from one of the Secondary Arches
organizers, as they need more package maintainers and people who are
willing to get involved in the Secondary Arches development.
Please see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs and scroll down to
Secondary Arches, within the SIG listing.
If you know anyone, who is interested in any SIG or sub-group, then
please make them aware of all the options we have, on how they can
participate, and how to get contacts or find more information on
sub-projects or SIGs.
Thank you all for your help spreading the word out there.

This came across the Fedora-KDE list, but I figured the ambassadors
list is a better place and that any ambassadors in the area might want
to chime in.

Subject: Arizona Business and Liberty Experience 2009
I am on the Promotion team of a Free Software Conference being held October
24 in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. The purpose of the conference is to bring FOSS
software to small and medium sized business, government and schools. The
primary distribution that will be represented will be Ubuntu GNU/Linux. I
think that a more 'bleeding edge' distro such as Fedora could benefit from
such a conference as well as the conference and attendees. Plus, I am a huge
Fedora-KDE fan :)
Does Fedora and the Fedora KDE-SIG have any interest in sponsoring (either
with volunteers or booths, or via monetary donations) this event? I will be
forwarding a call for presentations shortly, as well.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Arizona's Premiere Conference on Open Source Software Offers Insight on
Leveraging Open Source Tools to Reduce IT Costs and Increase Flexibility in
the Midst of Economic Uncertainty.
TEMPE, AZ -- Building on the success of its first run last September, the
Arizona Business & Liberty Experience Conference (ABLEconf) is set to return
to the University of Advancing Technology (UAT) on the 24th of October,
With businesses, schools, governments, non-profits and individuals all
looking to cut costs wherever they can, open-source software can help
leverage the advantage of using software in their infrastructure that
delivers enterprise-ready results without the entanglements of costly
Open source office application suites like OpenOffice.org can be leveraged
to cut the repeating costs of paying for new office software and training,
while implementing open standards that make it easy to do business with
users of all variety of office software.
Firewall systems such as OpenBSD's pf can be used to implement industry-
proven network security at the fraction of the cost of firewall systems with
high licensing and support costs.
Operating systems such as GNU/Linux and its Ubuntu distribution can be used
to create reliable, secure desktop systems impervious to viruses and
malware that are highly customizable to an individual company or school's
needs, entail no licensing costs, and require less frequent hardware
upgrades than proprietary systems such as Windows and Mac OS X.
These, and many more topics will be presented and discussed. Thanks to
sponsors like RD Harris PC and our host, UAT, admission is free. No
registration is required to attend.
ABLEconf was founded in 2008 by a coalition of Free / Open-Source software
groups and associations in Arizona. The free-admission one-day conference
hosts a wide variety of speaking tracks and sessions on how to take
advantage of open source software in small business, government, medical,
enterprise, and individual use.

with an ABLEconf representative, please call us at 1.623.252.ABLE or e-mail

(08:00:12 PM) inode0 has changed the topic to: FAmNA Meeting: Agenda:
(08:00:17 PM) inode0: Roll Call
(08:00:34 PM) ***quaid is here
(08:00:38 PM) quaid: lcafiero is on his way
(08:00:46 PM) pcalarco: pcalarco here
(08:00:46 PM) dthomasdigital: dthomasdigital here
(08:00:54 PM) crossbytes: crossbytes is here
(08:01:03 PM) ***VileGent
(08:01:29 PM) inode0: ok, others can announce themselves as they arrive
(08:01:38 PM) inode0: I have two announcements tonight
(08:01:57 PM) inode0: (1) F11 media is shipping out to regional ambassadors now
(08:02:14 PM) ***inode0 waits for hurrahs
(08:02:20 PM) quaid: hurrah!!!
(08:02:21 PM) ***ianweller lurks
(08:02:24 PM) dthomasdigital: yippie
(08:02:26 PM) pcalarco: w00t
(08:02:40 PM) inode0: (2) The FreeMedia program needs your help!
(08:03:02 PM) dthomasdigital: what can we do?
(08:03:03 PM) inode0: We are now swamped with way more requests than
we can handle
(08:03:21 PM) VileGent: ???
(08:03:28 PM) inode0: So one thing we would like to do is to
ask/encourage all ambassadors to join
(08:03:29 PM) ianweller: from USA?
(08:03:42 PM) inode0: and try to fill 2 or 3 requests each month
(08:04:02 PM) ***ianweller needs to buy some shipment thingies
(08:04:12 PM) inode0: With enough people we can easily handle things
without anyone having to shell out $200 a month or work days on end
(08:04:22 PM) dthomasdigital: No problem for me consider it done from
(08:04:27 PM) ***herlo is here
(08:04:43 PM) pcalarco: is there a wiki page for the requests?
(08:05:06 PM) inode0: It is really easy and if you think about the
smiling recipient of your kindness when he/she opens the mailbox the
time doing it goes by fast
(08:05:27 PM) VileGent: pcalarco, tracker
(08:06:03 PM) inode0: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Distribution/FreeMedia
(08:06:43 PM) inode0: that is being worked on, shipments were
suspended this month while we try to recruit more helpers
(08:07:22 PM) inode0: NA isn't the biggest problem by any means, but
there are times we don't get to all the requests here too
(08:08:10 PM) inode0: You need to remember to check in each month to
see the pending requests - they normally come in the first few days
(08:09:12 PM) inode0: Ok, that was my brief sales pitch for the
FreeMedia program - I do think it is a great program and really want
it to thrive on individuals giving
(08:09:38 PM) inode0: Does anyone else have an announcement?
(08:10:12 PM) inode0 has changed the topic to: FAmNA Meeting: Events:
(08:10:30 PM) inode0: Red Hat Summit update and request ...
(08:10:53 PM) inode0: Everything is going swell, we have almost all
our needed supplies
(08:11:14 PM) inode0: Paul is finishing up the live image each
attendee will get on a usb stick
(08:11:45 PM) inode0: We have pens to add to conference bags or give
out at the booth depending
(08:12:03 PM) inode0: If anyone is going please do sign up here
(08:12:14 PM) QuickStart2: hello all
(08:12:21 PM) inode0: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Red_Hat_Summit_2009
(08:12:43 PM) pcalarco: !
(08:12:53 PM) inode0: go ahead pcalarco
(08:12:57 PM) QuickStart2: I'm I late for roll call
(08:13:10 PM) inode0: that's ok QuickStart2
(08:13:15 PM) pcalarco: I suppose one has to be a registered attendee
to work the Fedora booth there?
(08:13:37 PM) inode0: pcalarco: I'm not entirely sure about that, we
need to check with stickster_afk
(08:13:59 PM) pcalarco: ok, thanks inode0
(08:14:40 PM) inode0: The request is that we'd like to host a Fedora
dinner for the likely 12-15 contributors helping out
(08:15:15 PM) inode0: We have a difficult time scheduling that, so
might get pizza delivered during booth setup or something like that
(08:15:59 PM) herlo: FAD!!
(08:16:24 PM) inode0: So I'd like to request funding for the Fedora
dinner (guessing it would be $200 - $300 depending)
(08:16:40 PM) inode0: FPD - Fedora Pizza Dinner
(08:17:10 PM) inode0: Silence will be noted as assent :)
(08:17:32 PM) inode0: Can setting up a booth be a FAD? :)
(08:18:21 PM) inode0: We'll try to keep the cost down, but it will be
really nice to get everyone together for a couple of hours.
(08:19:07 PM) inode0: We are still in need of two items, media which
is on its way thanks to herlo, and banners which are later on the
(08:19:33 PM) inode0: Moving on then: Ohio Linux Fest
(08:19:44 PM) ***inode0 is guessing that is VileGent's topic
(08:19:57 PM) VileGent: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ohio_Linux_Fest_2009
(08:20:05 PM) VileGent: sign up if you are attending
(08:20:11 PM) pcalarco: I added that, actually; doesn't look like we
have very many Ambassadors there yet
(08:20:35 PM) pcalarco: so just wanted to add a plug for this; we had
a great turnout last year
(08:20:45 PM) VileGent: pcalarco, well last year was the year we
really had the sea of blue before that it was 3-4 of us
(08:21:03 PM) pcalarco: ah, ok
(08:21:16 PM) inode0: Being the old fashioned FAD last year helped a
lot with turnout
(08:21:23 PM) VileGent: OLF is proable one of the biggest shows on the
(08:21:51 PM) inode0: ke4qqq is going but isn't on that list, others
I'm sure are too
(08:22:10 PM) VileGent: hopefully my co organizer will resurface soon
(08:23:01 PM) ***inode0 suggests poking people to sign up when they
mention they are going
(08:23:46 PM) VileGent: and i have others who are not ambassadors who
i am trying to get to go, so i maybe can get them into being
(08:23:59 PM) inode0: great
(08:24:36 PM) inode0 has changed the topic to: FAmNA Meeting: Budget:
(08:24:45 PM) VileGent: there are some people wanting rides
(08:25:08 PM) inode0: yes, a signup for carpooling
(08:25:38 PM) inode0: ready to move on?
(08:26:02 PM) pcalarco: aye
(08:26:20 PM) inode0: I might be a little more aggressive than usual
about moving forward tonight - if I go too fast just yell at me
(08:26:58 PM) inode0: New Mexico GNU/Linux Fest Sponsorship has been
taken care of - perhaps dthomasdigital would like to say something
about the event
(08:27:19 PM) dthomasdigital: Well let me start by saying thank you.
(08:27:21 PM) inode0: or not, no pressure
(08:27:32 PM) dthomasdigital: It's going to be great to have fedora at the fest
(08:27:53 PM) inode0: people going should hit the wiki for this one too
(08:28:11 PM) dthomasdigital: you can see it's really coming together
(08:28:47 PM) dthomasdigital: I'm making the big announcement in here
tonight and it's official.
(08:29:04 PM) inode0: ooh
(08:29:30 PM) dthomasdigital: Our keynote speaker will be Richard Stallman!
(08:29:42 PM) ***inode0 applauds
(08:29:56 PM) pcalarco: +1
(08:30:10 PM) dthomasdigital: of course the big news is inode0 is speaking too.
(08:30:30 PM) herlo: inode0: really! cool!
(08:30:40 PM) herlo: inode0: I would come to hear you speek
(08:30:55 PM) crossbytes: just saw web site great job on pulling all
of this together .. .
(08:30:57 PM) inode0: it is a bit of an odd talk
(08:30:57 PM) VileGent: inode0, you have big shoes to follow now
(08:31:14 PM) dthomasdigital: Of course all I have to do is get RMS in
from Chile the day before the conference, talk about logistics.
(08:31:24 PM) quaid: lcafiero using quaid's computer: I'd prefer to
see inode0 over RMS
(08:31:29 PM) inode0: is RMS the opening or closing speaker?
(08:31:35 PM) dthomasdigital: Opening
(08:31:59 PM) aeperezt: good luck with that one inode0
(08:32:20 PM) ***inode0 can find a funny hat
(08:32:22 PM) dthomasdigital: Closing speaker is up in the air right
now it's looking like Jono Bacon.
(08:32:41 PM) VileGent: oh bad the ubuntu frat boys again
(08:32:45 PM) ***inode0 applauds jono too
(08:33:27 PM) inode0: wow, lots of surprises tonight
(08:33:42 PM) dthomasdigital: Being New Mexico we are trying to get
the Gentoo folks as well, it is the NM distro
(08:34:41 PM) VileGent: dthomasdigital, i hope the hotel has a airport shuttle
(08:35:03 PM) dthomasdigital: I'll have hotel info up some time this month
(08:36:29 PM) inode0: great, exciting news
(08:36:48 PM) dthomasdigital: now all I have to do is clone me and
I'll be good to go.
(08:36:55 PM) inode0: UTOSC request from your humble emcee
(08:37:40 PM) inode0: For a variety of very good reasons I would like
to see us help sponsor UTOSC this year by providing the standard booth
(08:37:47 PM) herlo: hi
(08:37:56 PM) ***herlo saw utosc!
(08:38:02 PM) herlo: can I talk about it for a minute?
(08:38:12 PM) inode0: ok
(08:38:17 PM) ***inode0 will wait
(08:38:30 PM) herlo: inode0: feel free to let me know, I can wait for you...
(08:38:32 PM) herlo: no rush really
(08:38:49 PM) inode0: ok, I can finish fast
(08:39:16 PM) inode0: I hoped we might have leftover money as we often
to at the end of the quarter to send to Utah
(08:39:31 PM) inode0: but it looks like that may or may not be the case
(08:39:44 PM) inode0: as you can see from the budget page, which has
(08:39:54 PM) ***herlo looks again
(08:40:15 PM) inode0: actually, the comm arch page better shows the hardship
(08:40:21 PM) herlo: link?
(08:40:42 PM) inode0: I'll dig it up in a minute
(08:40:47 PM) herlo: nw
(08:41:12 PM) inode0: anyway, there is I believe another 1800 or so
spent on the t-shirts although there seems to be some confusion on
(08:41:14 PM) QuickStart2: so with the money left order can we splurge
on new abassador kits
(08:41:23 PM) inode0: we have the t-shirts, someone paid for them
(08:41:35 PM) inode0: or was that last quarter?
(08:41:46 PM) inode0: it isn't listed last quarter either
(08:42:03 PM) inode0: we'll figure that out later ...
(08:42:10 PM) herlo: I see about 6k spent so far
(08:42:52 PM) inode0: my proposal is that we sponsor UTOSC by paying
the $700 booth fee this year either with quarter end money or from Q3
if we don't have it in Q2
(08:43:00 PM) inode0: herlo: you talk for a bit
(08:43:24 PM) herlo: inode0: okay
(08:43:43 PM) herlo: so for a couple points, if you can't sponsor
UTOSC in Q2, Q3 is great!
(08:44:06 PM) herlo: TBH, I just wanted to mention that I really am
looking forward to seeing a bunch of you at UTOSC.
(08:44:21 PM) herlo: I know that a few are plannign on it and we have
been working really hard to make it fun this year
(08:44:33 PM) herlo: http://2009.utosc.com is our website, we're
getting more info up there every day
(08:45:14 PM) herlo: anyway, it seems we're in a transition year, but
we have Stormy Peters keynoting on Friday October 9
(08:45:34 PM) herlo: and we have a local fellow, named Daren Brabham
talking about crowdsourcing as well.
(08:45:35 PM) dthomasdigital: Very cool I like Stormy a lot
(08:45:50 PM) herlo: UTOSC always does a local and global keynote each day
(08:46:05 PM) herlo: we have people from the ODF alliance coming and a
guy from IBM on Thursday, our community day
(08:47:00 PM) herlo: we'll also have Guru Labs University, which is a
local linux training company. They'll be doing a class on Thursday
too, showing off their new courseware, which is Ubuntu specific, but
they have some really good courses too
(08:47:16 PM) herlo: anyway, there's a ton more on our site. Ooh, and
one last mention
(08:47:39 PM) herlo: we're doing the world premeir of a new cartoon
called 'The Kenny Ho Project' -- http://www.kennyhoproject.com
(08:48:36 PM) herlo: anyway, I plan on setting up a page on our wiki
(might already be there) and I think lcafiero was going to help me
with the booth.
(08:48:49 PM) herlo: but we want to have a FAD there, not sure what on yet
(08:49:01 PM) inode0: CFP soon for potential speakers
(08:49:08 PM) herlo: inode0: it's been up for a month
(08:49:15 PM) inode0: yeah, get them in soon :)
(08:49:29 PM) herlo: here's a list of them that have been submitted:
(08:49:58 PM) herlo: if you register (volunteer, present, etc) you get
to vote for each presentation, up or down
(08:50:42 PM) herlo: now, I heard about some complaints about our
pricing so I wanted to mention that up front.
(08:51:05 PM) herlo: we put up pricing of $70 for Early Bird and $100
for Standard Registration
(08:51:08 PM) herlo: but
(08:51:36 PM) herlo: if you participate in some way in a free software
(or open source) project, you get 50% off. Making early bird $35 and
(08:51:52 PM) herlo: or if you volunteer in some way (say at the
fedora booth), you get in for free
(08:51:55 PM) ***inode0 thinks it is very reasonable either way
(08:52:06 PM) herlo: we're all about making it free if you give back
(08:52:11 PM) VileGent: thats reasonable
(08:52:15 PM) herlo: :)
(08:52:46 PM) herlo: the point being that we're really excited to have
people there, we're not trying to exclude anyone, just that we want
people to be committed to the conference
(08:53:21 PM) ***VileGent will comment later
(08:53:24 PM) herlo: in addition, this year we have an Expo pass for iirc $15
(08:54:01 PM) herlo: and we have a Thursday only for $10
(08:54:27 PM) herlo: so, my whole pitch here is to get people out to
the con and help with the fedora booth and the FAD
(08:54:39 PM) ***herlo could og longer, but I think that'll do
(08:54:44 PM) herlo: that'll do pig, that'll do
(08:54:47 PM) herlo: thanks inode0
(08:55:43 PM) inode0: ok, would anyone else like to comment on my proposal?
(08:56:22 PM) pcalarco: sounds like a very worthwhile event to support; +1
(08:56:47 PM) inode0: Next topic then: Retractable banners & Posters
(08:57:08 PM) herlo: thanks pcalarco
(08:57:19 PM) ***herlo is hoping to make it to NMLF too
(08:57:39 PM) inode0: Who is the Retractable banners & Posters person?
(08:57:48 PM) inode0: VileGent?
(08:57:56 PM) dthomasdigital: would love to have herlo, I sure got
lots of green chili to make
(08:58:01 PM) VileGent: i arranged the banners and tossed it back to you
(08:58:07 PM) herlo: dthomasdigital: awesome
(08:58:44 PM) VileGent: ok we finally got banner sizes from the provider
(08:58:50 PM) inode0: last I heard ke4qqq was going to order the
banners, I haven't heard whether he did though
(08:59:00 PM) VileGent: and they will not fit the event box
(08:59:23 PM) inode0: and those are in the Q2 budget so we can proceed
(08:59:30 PM) VileGent: so inode and i had a discussion and i had the
desogn team to come up with to banners
(08:59:54 PM) VileGent: so they are waiting to be ordered afaiK
(09:00:41 PM) VileGent: posters" i have a request in to the design
team for 2 four foundations posters which i will have printed locally
(09:01:05 PM) VileGent: hopefully i can send a set to all the event
boxes in september
(09:01:15 PM) VileGent: eol
(09:01:39 PM) inode0: those will be great in the event boxes
(09:02:17 PM) inode0 has changed the topic to: FAmNA Meeting: Tasks:
(09:02:29 PM) inode0: switching the agenda for pcalarco now
(09:02:39 PM) inode0: do we want to do another round of Fedora Ambassador polos?
(09:03:14 PM) pcalarco: lcafiero was also looking into button downs
(09:03:28 PM) pcalarco: maybe do those before?
(09:03:42 PM) inode0: I believe StabbyMc was also looking at those
(09:04:21 PM) inode0: I'm not sure if it would be better or not to
have the Fedora button downs not be ambassador specific?
(09:05:07 PM) inode0: Keep the sort of unified ambassador polo look
but have Fedora button downs available too
(09:05:14 PM) pcalarco: yes, more general so anyone from any of the
teams can wear them
(09:05:21 PM) inode0: right
(09:06:00 PM) inode0: the button down ringleaders don't seem to be here tonight
(09:06:10 PM) pcalarco: ok, so I will send out a call for round 4 of
FAMNA polos on the list this week
(09:06:14 PM) inode0: do we have folks signed up for polos?
(09:06:23 PM) pcalarco: two thus far
(09:06:29 PM) inode0: the polos seem to always be popular
(09:07:28 PM) ***inode0 needs about 5 minutes before campus ambassador
discussion, does someone else have something to fill the dead air?
(09:07:29 PM) pcalarco: I think we have around 30 Ambassadors in total
with them now
(09:07:37 PM) pcalarco: eol
(09:07:56 PM) inode0: no don't stop - keep going for another 5 minutes!
(09:08:08 PM) inode0: be back asap
(09:08:42 PM) pcalarco: VileGent: is there an EventBox for OLF?
(09:09:05 PM) VileGent: yep sitting on the other side of the room from me
(09:09:26 PM) pcalarco: sweet; haven't seen one in action yet :)
(09:09:27 PM) VileGent: we do have 3 boxes now
(09:09:34 PM) VileGent: pcalarco, you did
(09:09:35 PM) herlo: yay for eventboxen
(09:09:48 PM) pcalarco: last year OLF?
(09:09:50 PM) VileGent: you were @OLF last year
(09:09:55 PM) pcalarco: ah, ok
(09:10:03 PM) crossbytes: any news on how OSCON went ?
(09:10:59 PM) VileGent: pcalarco, i guess i am the east coast
coordinator for the east voast event box
(09:11:36 PM) VileGent: it was @ SELF, will be going to OLF then to PA
(09:11:49 PM) pcalarco: nice
(09:12:02 PM) inode0: sorry, back
(09:12:37 PM) inode0: pcalarco: paul is going to check on the Fedora
booth at the summit
(09:13:00 PM) pcalarco: inode0: okies, thx
(09:13:17 PM) inode0: shall we move on to campus ambassadors?
(09:13:28 PM) VileGent: +1
(09:13:54 PM) inode0: we bounced around some ideas for the general
structure of sponsoring one campus ambassador to attend FUDcon the
(09:14:10 PM) inode0: I'd like to share it now with everyone for any feedback
(09:14:25 PM) inode0: So let me lay it out in general terms
(09:14:52 PM) inode0: the award will be airfare and 1/2 room for one
campus ambassador from NA
(09:16:11 PM) inode0: campus ambassadors will do their thing across NA
this fall and those wishing to attend FUDcon can submit a description
of their activities as campus ambassadors (and in other areas of the
project) by a date to be determined
(09:16:52 PM) inode0: a committee composed of the 5 regional
ambassadors and/or others they designate will by some method to be
determined rank the entries
(09:17:24 PM) inode0: emphasis will be on campus activities, but other
fedora activities will count for something
(09:18:05 PM) inode0: we probably should announce this very soon and
end it around Halloween
(09:18:24 PM) inode0: so folks can get to work early in the fall semester
(09:19:11 PM) inode0: does this sound reasonable for a general format?
suggestions are very welcome
(09:20:02 PM) pcalarco: sounds great, and this should help promote
folks becoming campus ambassadors and reward those doing the most
(09:20:16 PM) inode0: that is what I'm hoping it does
(09:21:00 PM) inode0: and it is worthwhile I think even if we have
only one who does enough to earn it
(09:21:28 PM) inode0: but I hope we can get many involved
(09:21:43 PM) VileGent: the sooner the announcement the sooner i can
send to my local luug
(09:22:05 PM) inode0: those of us around campuses need to get on the
ball (if we aren't already) recruiting our own campuses
(09:22:06 PM) crossbytes: Sounds great .. I think there should be
something for people that can not or do not want to attend the FUDcon
a better chance to get even more involved.
(09:22:22 PM) ***inode0 looks guilty
(09:22:55 PM) inode0: nothing is stopping anyone I hope
(09:23:45 PM) inode0: this isn't just about a reward, it is an
opportunity for a young contributor to grow inside the project and
have a great experience that might otherwise not be available
(09:24:12 PM) inode0: at least that is how I'm thinking of it
(09:25:02 PM) inode0: and I should mention that *all* fedora
contributors are eligible to be sponsored to attend FUDcon anyway
(09:25:05 PM) VileGent: i have always said we have to grow the
contributors from the ground up
(09:25:28 PM) inode0: but we are trying to send one extra
(09:26:27 PM) inode0: if it helps kickstart the campus ambassador
program all the better for everyone
(09:26:57 PM) dthomasdigital: sounds great, I'm all for it.
(09:27:30 PM) pcalarco: +1
(09:28:04 PM) crossbytes: +1
(09:28:06 PM) inode0: ok, I'll try to write up something a bit more
formal this week and get it announced as soon as possible
(09:28:33 PM) ***inode0 tapes sticky notes to forehead
(09:28:59 PM) inode0 has changed the topic to: FAmNA Meeting: Open Floor
(09:31:35 PM) inode0: that means this is the time for anything else :)
(09:32:22 PM) inode0: going once
(09:32:37 PM) VileGent: motion to adjoin
(09:32:44 PM) inode0: ok, we can wrap
(09:32:46 PM) inode0: 5
(09:32:48 PM) inode0: 4
(09:32:51 PM) inode0: 3
(09:32:53 PM) inode0: 2
(09:32:54 PM) inode0: 1
(09:32:59 PM) inode0: /EOM
(09:33:04 PM) inode0: thank you everyone

Guys, I was thinking that by fedora ambassadors program we reach those
who already have knowledge about linux but what about the end user who
are just a normal member of Local LUG's.
If fedora can come up with a program to associate or affiliate LUGs,
then it will be great.
Benefits : -
1. Direct interaction with end users. We can have a separate mailing
list/ IRC for this.
2. Publicity will increase as we can permit the LUGs that if they have
a website, they can put a "Fedora Affiliate LUG" logo.
3. Many times it happens that beginners have good ideas but they don't
know how to implement it. These ideas can benefit us.
and a lot can happen.
