I've had a meeting with my college and they gave me a thumbs up for
organizing events in our college. I've discussed thing more in general,
thing like what is fedora, what we do etc. I am planning with them to
organize for now at least one activity per month. They have also asked
are there any other ways they can help in this process.
@Justin they addressed one question regarding marketing, is it ok if we
share a banner with Fedora's logo and their logo too ? the case would be
in roll up banners.
I will be organizing my first event with them on Tuesday for Google
Summer of Code, and how the process would be to apply to Fedora.
