It's in that case important that Linuxtag is the greatest Open Source
event in EMEA (they write every year on their homepage and also in the
press) and ...
... due of the matter, that Red Hat EMEA decides NOT to attend the
Linuxtag also the Fedora Projects has at the moment no approved booth
neither we're invited to attend the Linuxtag.
They only tell me "Ohhhh, you have to wait ..."
On the other hand, they push with such news the Ubuntu project which has
obviously payed a "big amount" for beeing at the Linuxtag and step up the
next "Ubuntu Love Day" @ that event ...
Imho there is no equal opportunity at all in the eyes of the .ORG of
Linuxtag and so we maybe felt out of the "open projects" and we should
decide what to do, maybe not really worldwide but EMEA-wide. OpenSUSE has
the same problem as well. Because of their is a prof. company in the
background of the Community of the Distributor, Linuxtag stands on the
point that the Project is not free and the prof. company should pay for
booth and attending the event (That's just my personal interpretation of
the happening in the last days) ...
Interesting. If a commercial organization is sponsoring or participating
in a distribution, its not free anymore?. By that measure doesnt the
participation of Canonical exclude Ubuntu from that list?. Maybe there
is a better explanation to this than a conspiracy theory. Thanks for
providing the context though.
