Mar 18-19, 2006 Fedora Core Open Days
Owners: MateuszHalaba PawelSadowski
PawelSadowski has submitted an update
Fedora Core Open Days are on 18-19 March. Pawel and Filip Klebczyk
(one of the main co-organizers) are already planning to organize next
event like that in the future.
Pawel was recently at Network Security GigaCon in Poland (didn't have
a speech, it was rather event in which companies were advertising
themselves, but maybe next time at Linux GigaCon he'll try to make
something ;)) and he would like to ask -- if I'll be on next event
like that, can I write the Fedora Foundation as my company?(they
require to write the name of company that you are from).
lxmaier: yes, you can say you are a member of Fedora Ambassadors Project

Apr 3-6, 2006 LinuxWorld Boston 2006
owners: MatthewMiller, JackAboutboul
greendisease: okay, so we have secured the .org booth. actually we
have secured it for both boston and san francisco. they like us so
much, they offered me advanced booking and i took it. we will have a
number of people there already, seeing as that the westford office is
right down the road and we will have machines from pogo linux. and
spot's mac mini. otherwise, gregdek, should we make a new banner with
the new logo?
as far as our install pavilion, i have a meeting with the expo people
at 1 to design a setup that comes in under budget. i was thinking 2
large tables, 10 chairs, some carpet and electricity, etc.
i am personally not planning on presenting. although i do have a
projector we could use against the backdrop. and we will have one
large 24' lcd in the booth.
Our BOF (Birds of a Feather) is on the schedule, they havent given me
the date yet.
someone (warren) usually does a fedora presentation at the rh booth
and points people to us; we did a few presentations on Fedora booth
last time in SF, and it didnt work so well. in the install booth
though, we should be able to.
the problem is, no mics allowed in the .org section. but the install
pavilion is anything goes. The space in the .org area is limited and
having 40 people listening to your presentation starts to block
traffic. idg complained. i think it is wiser to do presentations oin
the install pavilion.

pogo linux, mysql, the catalonian government, mit opencourseware. the
schedule we have will go up and the announcement will go out on

out are the AV equipment and do a test stream. and we should be

May 3-6, 2006 LinuxTag/FUDCon Wiesbaden 2006
owners: GeroldKassube FlorianBrand
GeroldKa: sorry for this: we have no more informations about the
organisation team and his decission. Florian stays in contact with the
founder to get the decission as soon as they made them. In the
meantime we are planning in the background :-) Another question in
that case: Which Ambassador will attend the Linuxtag in Wiesbaden? I
know from ChitleshGoorah, FlorianBrand, JensKuehnel, ThorstenLemhuis
and me. Anyone other????
lxmaier: depending on many factors I might be able to come to linuxtag

who would like to coordinate this effort?
ke4qqq: I'll help... I'll start with pres, and help...... videos after that.

Targer Date: End of March 2006
Description: Need to make sure that the schwag pipeline is functional.
This is separate from the actual stuff we send; this is just making
sure that the stuff we send actually gets to the places it needs to
gregdek: 1. DVDs. Looks like we're going to be burning 2-sided, with
source on one side and binaries on the other. This is (a) because
people can't play with source if they don't have it, and (b) helps get
the FSF off our back a bit, which is good. The cost will go up, which
means that there will be fewer to go around -- but it's The Right
Thing, so we'll deal with it.
2. Cost of kits is established, I'm meeting with our logistics guy
today to get the final timeline on store availability in the US.
Regions outside Americas will lag by 2 weeks to a month. For
emergencies, though, we'll just ship from the US store for events.
We'll take the cost hit.
Here's a fact of life: we will *never* have mass DVDs within 2 weeks
of the FC release. *Ever*. So at release time, we *must* figure out
how to burn and distribute locally.
So that's my update. More and better news next week, I'm sure.
Presentations for Ambassadors
Description: We need to provide Ambassadors with some slide decks for
various presentations. We should probably aggregate the ones we
already have and make them available. We should also figure out our
policy for licensing these presentations!
lxmaier: i will remove my name from there. i do not really lead this
effort, but someone can volunteer to do that.
gregdek: Proposed policy is OPL, right? I mean, we're basically doing
this, aren't we?
tchung: lxmaier, I think mether would be good
lxmaier: yes, we are all for OPL :)
