I have thought an thing that could be the next ninja bounty an Fedora
Community Site kit, where who wants simply could download an package, what
contains elements to an community site or an blog. Maybe it's a good idea,
until the community site will be ready. With that, makes easier to create
What do you think guys, girls?
This mail is a reminder for today's meeting for the French speaking community.

Ce mail est un rappel pour la réunion de la communauté francophone, qui aura lieu ce lundi (26 juillet) à 20h30 heure de Paris sur IRC (freenode) #fedora-meeting .

Today I had a tip for Ambassadors and went looking for a page to put
... which it turns out I created last year.
I added the tip (create a flyer for scheduled Fedora-related items
around a conference, to pass out at from the booth, around the room,
etc.), and am reminding all of you about this page and system.
You can add a short tip or trick to that page. For longer ideas, you
can create a stand-alone page. If you do, add these categories to the
bottom so the page is easily found:
[[Category:Ambassador how to]]
[[Category:Ambassador tips and tricks]]
name: Karsten 'quaid' Wade, Sr. Community Gardener
team: Red Hat Community Architecture
What do you think about move some useful page from wiki (ex. Join
Page) to a static page and put it in transifex?
I am from Brazil and I can see how is hard get new collaborators,
because we have a obsolete or inexistent information about how it is
possible in our language (pt-br).
IMO we (from Brazil) should send our new collaborators to official
website, instead local website with obsolete or inexistent
IMO is easier keep translation of official information, instead create
a new one or copy and translate that, because when something change,
may be we can't follow.
What do you think about it?

as Ambassadors we are exposed to the public more than all the other
contributors within the Fedora Project - therefore we are commited to
our special Code of Conduct - i know that sometimes frictions are not
avoidable - it is the way how we deal with it!
Spot wrote a very interesting Article about "anger and FOSS"
and made some very valuable points:
"Angry people are poisonous people. Sometimes, they can calm down and
become productive people, but almost no one is useful and productive
when they're angry. This is why snark isn't useful or productive. It's
why no one wins a shouting match, ever. When it comes to FOSS, which is
largely a meritocracy, when you're angry, you're not able to earn
respect or credibility."
a very interesting read.

The cost would be the event sponsorship fee + cost for producing
media, other incidental costs will be covered by local ambassadors.
Benefit to Fedora - this will be our biggest presence so far in the
university and although the organizing committee is from IC, the
project is geared towards the whole UP Community (students, alumni,
partners and friends) so there's still a good chance of meeting people
from your usual CS+Engg crowd.

This would be hard to sell. The event is a fundraiser and although
they probably could, I just don't want to ask.

Unfortunately, this won't raise much money.

Now we're talking :)
For PHP 15k, we'll have (1) acknowledgment by the hosts during the
event, (2) plain text acknowledgment on presentation, (3) tertiary
billing on all promotional materials, (4) 10 second video commercial
during the event, (5) flyers to 80% of attendees, (6) option to set up
a booth, (7) 3" x 4" banner in the venue.
> Herson, your thoughts as event owner?
I think the event is worthwhile because of two reasons: (1) it's a
good cause (helping IC get their bearings back after the fire) and (2)
we'll be putting the Fedora Project in front of a lot of professors,
students, alumni and university officials.
I want to add more but for brevity's sake that's what's on my mind.
i want to share with you the collected answers of our Ambassadors
mentoring survey. This is the first stage, FAmA will now aggregate the
answers and work out a proposal to the Mentors which will be discussed
in the soon to be announced (next) Mentors Meeting - to enhance the
membership and mentoring expirience.
I think it is a very interesting read and is showing we are on a good
way with our approach on mentoring.
Thanks to Sankarshan who gave the impulse for this survey and also
thanks to all mentors who took the time to answer the survey - we know
how busy you all are!
