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.
Tonight at the meeting we started discussing about this topic, keeping
the current process or moving to a simpler one.
Actually, we have our meeting in the following format:
with a page template like in .
If we move to a single wiki page, like wiki/Meeting:EMEA_Ambassadors, we
could gain some advantages:
- Don't need to look for the meeting URL on the meeting reminder, as it
would be static
- Easy to check when is going to be the next meeting from the static
- The agenda is not so different each time, we could edit it each time
to add/remove topics
- We could add a generic link to all our meeting minutes, thanks to
meetbot. Like in . For this to be efficient, we *need* to name the
meeting exactly the same each time (i.e. #startmeeting EMEA
- We could use this static page to link if we setup a cron for our
reminder (as done on several other teams, like docs). (cron is good!)
The point that Christoph see is when we want to look for special
resolution or subject. Now it is quite easy using a search engine on the
But if instead of just sending the logs on the mailing list we also
copy the summary, we will only have to look on our mailbox. The
mailing list application will probably help also.
Do you guys see an other advantage to keep ou current process? Or to
move with a static meeting page?
I hope you remember the Ambassadors survey Ankur started a while back
. One of the results was that many ambassadors have problems getting
swag. This includes both production as well as shipping.
FAmSCo wants to address this issue and we need your help here. We opened
a ticket  and invited people who are involved in the swag business to
provide feedback. We already had some good ideas such as a 'swag
wrangler' for each region, but it turns out that so far most of that
feedback comes from regions where swag shipping and production work - or
at least the people who are doing it, think so.
Therefor I'd like to hear something from the regions where there are
problems and the people who complained. When you reply, please state
1. where you are from (Country)
2. what problems do you have exactly (too slow, too expansive, ...)
3. How often did you have these problems (once, sometimes, every
Last but not least: Let's not point figures at each other, but collect
feedback to make things better. So please don't say "Foo is an idiot
because he did not send bar in time" :)
