On september 22th we had the Software Freedom Day celebration in Tijuana,
México. It was organized by the local LUG (Grupo de Usuarios GNU/Linux de
Tijuana <http://www.gultij.org>) which I am a member of and there were like
150 attendants at the event. We gave away many Fedora DVDs and stickers,
and I saw people trying Fedora on the lunch break. Most of them asked me
how was it different from Ubuntu, a few others asked how to install
programs. There were some people (I saw 4) that already had fedora on their
laptops, and like 2 that had it on virtualbox.
There were 6 conferences and the topics were:
- Intro to Linux, the Free Software and the GULTIJ.
- The future of mobile development: Android.
- Projects hosting in Google Code.
- Linux USB Device Drivers.
- Marshmellow Game Engine: Free/Libre console.
- The Yocto project.
The event ran from 8:30 am til 4:30 pm. Food and drinks was sponsored for
all the attendants. The event was also transmitted on a local webradio
station. For more details and pictures here is my blog post (in spanish):
Thanks to Fedora for all the support! :D

In a recent marketing team meeting, we were discussing the difficulty of
finding a list of Linux User Groups around the world online. Fedora has
such a list:
...but I suspect that like a lot of wiki pages, it hasn't been
maintained in a while.
Could each of you take a moment to take a look at the page, and if you
have a LUG in your area (or if there's another you know of), add it to

I'd like to remind everyone that it is important for us to get some work
accomplished at these meetings and staying on the topic is important
to that end. All comments are welcome from ambassadors during the
meetings but please wait until the Open Floor to add any subject matter
not included in the meeting agenda via a ticket.
Feel free to add to the agenda. The easy way to add an agenda item is
described at the bottom of this announcement. Especially if you have an
event coming up that needs some attention.
== Meeting Agenda ==
=== Announcements ===
Time for brief announcements.
=== Orientation Topics ===
After giving this some thought I have concluded there is way too much
material for one meeting so we'll add one or two topics each week
until we have everything covered. Please add topics or suggest future
topics for us to cover.
=== Tickets ===
Tickets scheduled for discussion at this meeting can be found at
Please read through each ticket in advance so you can be prepared to
discuss them at the meeting.
=== Open Floor ===
Unscheduled topics can be raised during the open floor if time
permits. Discussion of any topic will generally be more productive if
participants know about the topics in advance and have some time to
think about them, so please add your topics to the meeting agenda in
the ticket system when possible.
If you would like to add a topic for discussion at our meetings please
open a ticket at
and set its milestone to meeting.
