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.
as far as you all remember, I promised to support the organizer from
FUDCon in Switzerland.
Right now, I can announce, that I was able to promise you -as attendee-
a special topic.
For those who stay until monday I can organise a sightseeing at CERN 
the European Organisation for Nuclear Research. A friend of mine which
is a Doctor in Physics works at the ATLAS Project  and will do a
guided tour for us. We can also have a lok (unfortunatly not a touch) in
their computing cluster. Mostly the CERN runs which runs Scintific
If you're interested let me know!
Dear Ambassadors and friends,
OSWC 2010 (Open Source World Conference) will be next october in Malaga,
Spain. I wrote a paper for a workshop about Fedora Project. The
organization of this event is using a system based on votes to choose
workshop, keynotes, conferences and so on.
It would be very useful to get a lot of votes, this is the URL to vote:
As Ambassadors in Spain, Jukka Palander and me offered this workshop.
I hope the organization of OSWC 2010 chooses this workshop to spread our
Thanks for supporting it!
I just created a blog post on the fedoracommunity.org redesign that
Sijis and I have been working on in the websites team:
Thank you for the help you provided earlier in tracking down some of the
various country sites; it made the mockups possible.
I wanted to know if you had any feedback on the design so far, and if we
missed any community sites that you may be aware of. Do let us know. I
am hoping this site can serve as a helpful tool for Fedora Ambassadors
in the future, especially in directing new/potential users to their
local community. Let me know if this makes sense!
Are there any ambassadors in the Dallas vicinity who would be
interested in participating in this event?
Please cc Steve on replies since he isn't a list member.

Subject: Need fedora swag for Software Freedom Day in Dallas
I'm part of the group organizing the Software Freedom Day event in
Dallas, TX. We'd like to get Fedora CDs and any other swag that's
available to hand out at our event. If a Fedora Ambassador is available
locally who can participate in some way that would be great too.
We have a Wiki page set up with more information on our local SFD event:
Any CD or other materials can be sent via postal mail to this address:

First, you should look for a mentor in the Fedora Project website. After that, you may keep in touch with he/she, and later, you must do an event and post it to the worldwide community to prove that you are able to be ambassador.
If you got any questions, you can ask without problem. Thank you.
Francesco was my first non francophone contact on fedora project with long
discussions on IRC. :'(
So good bye and I wish you the best.
