Please join us for our weekly FAmNA meeting this Tuesday at 9:00pm
Eastern in #fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.net.
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.
=== Select Next Meeting Leader ===
=== 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.
I won't be able to chair the Wed's EMEA meeting because I'll be
travelling to FUDCon Lawrence. Christoph can't chair it either because
of his work duties.
We haven't skipped a meeting for a long time and I hope we won't skip
this time either. We're looking for someone who will take the duty and
chair the meeting. I know there are many of you in EMEA who can do it

Lately, I have spent sometime working on a web-application that would
allow us to manage calendar: fedocal.
I started with the idea to replace the #fedora-meeting wiki page 
which in addition from not being up to date relies on a mediawiki table
which a number of person find really hard to handle/edit.
Additionally it should be able to handle meeting reminder in a
consistent and automated manner.
I also had in mind to be able to have a calendar for the infrastructure,
things like planned outage and all.
I spoke with some person about this at the last FUDCon in Paris and they
told me, it might be interesting to have a calendar also available for
Something that could/would replace the Events page . This means that
on the contrary to the #fedora-meeting calendar, the ambassador one can
have several meetings at the same time and that we should be able to
assign them to a region (EMEA/APAC/LATAM/NA).
I took this into account and added the desired functionality to fedocal.
I think I am now close to an alpha release so I would like to call for
tester and feedback.
Do you like it?
Do you find it useful?
What should be added?
What simply doesn't work?
All can go to fedocal's trac:
If you are interested, I also wrote down some documentation:
And of course, fedocal itself:
It is still a very young project and I am still trying to determine if
we want this and if it fits our needs.
Thanks for your time.
