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 stated in the last public Board IRC meeting where the second draft
of the proposed new trademark guidelines were considered the Board is
planning to revisit and possibly approve them at the next public Board
IRC meeting which is next Wednesday. So if we want to provide feedback
(we being NA ambassadors but all ambassadors are welcome to
participate in a discussion here) to the Board we need to consider
these carefully now.
The current draft is here
Please read it carefully with special attention to the sections
covering our work making promotional items for distribution at events.
Please feel free to ask questions and give your impressions here but
we will largely focus on this subject at our meeting next Tuesday so
we can present the Board with our feedback the following day. This is
important business for ambassadors so please give it careful
Me fellow ambassadors,
it is time to request the budget and a PO for the EMEA F17 media.
|| Release || Media || PO || Used || Ticket ||
|| F14 || 6000 || USD 5000 || || #91 ||
|| F15 || 5000 || USD 5000 || 3876 EUR || #157 ||
|| F16 || 4000 || 4000 EUR || 2448 EUR || #218 ||
1. We did less and less media throughout the last years
2. I think we have reached the minimum. Jiri only has very few
media left and we still have some more events left in the F16
cycle. And we could have spent more media on some events. AT CLT
we were out of Multi Desktop DVDs and at IDLELO we did not have
3. In the F14 cycle we had 1000 media reserved for Africa and I
think we should do this again.
4. In the F15 we had 1000 media reserved for Red Hat Czech. I think
they want to do this again.
5. We managed to dramatically cut the costs by producing in Czech
and placing one big order together with Red Hat. Shipping from
the RH office has also been extremely comfortable so I think we
should go for the Czech vendor again.
1. How much media do we need? Go up to 5000 again?
2. Should we investigate the possibility to do the installer DVD as
Dual Layer, too? We already have the tools, we just didn't do it
because we wanted to have a backup for computers that cannot
handle DL. AFAIC the NA ambassadors did it and received no
complaints. We didn't for the Multi Desktop DVD, either.
I have asked Jiri to request the following quotes:
* 2000 Multi Desktop DL, 1000 Installer 32, 1000 Installer 64
(same as last year)
* 3000 Multi Desktop DL, 1000 Installer 32, 1000 Installer 64
* 2000 Multi Desktop DL, 2000 Installer DL
* 3000 Multi Desktop DL, 2000 Installer DL
The 4th option looks good to me. Comments or questionsanybody? Ask here
or at https://fedorahosted.org/famsco/ticket/280
I am planning a release party for F17 in Taichung City, Taiwan. This
is my first time trying to hold a release party.
Now the place and the budget has not decided yet, I will discuss with
my friends. Hoping it will be a nice event! :)

Dear APAC FAms,
Harish has some F16 media (64 bit - DVDs) and as we are reaching F17
it is required to empty those stocks.
Therefore if you want any media for an event or to distribute please
do not hesitate to ask some.
How to order:
Use the APAC trac and open a ticket with details,
* your need
* how much you need
* is there any consideration on shipping in your country (tax etc.)
* anything related
Please do not hesitate to ask if you want, it is better to distribute
them rather keep them in stores.
