Interesting approach and great initiative!
That's exactly what we gotta do: offer the appropriate materials and
infrastructure for Ambassadors perform their "spread-the-word"

Ok, here I am again with FedoraLibraries
I have updated
it some days ago.
Following a discussion on #fedora-mktg, mether, cds, puneet_batura and
I, Im starting the discussion again.
Product: Fedora Core 5
My wish, for the moment, is that we need to establish a procedure to
state what needs to be done by any ambassador to be able to launch
this project in his/her local librairies.
more than a procedure, i'd call it a project...
contact the director of the library
i'd include preparing a proposal here - outlining the scope, goals,
operation, resources, benefits and maybe a rough timeline of the project
pls contact me offline if you need a hand to create some sort of
schedule a meeting
give the ambassador appropriate tools for the meeting (what to say)
Get an ISSN number.
have a generic DVD case template
build/apprend a wiki page to list the name of the libraries which
supporting our project
do add more
If we have this done, any ambassador or newcomer will have this
material at his disposal for marketing.
true! the referred template can be "localized" into different markets
FedoraLibrairies is also another way to support Thomas Chung's
"Free Media" since anyone will have the ability to copy the dvd.
At my university, I myself am providing LiveCD for my mates. I just
started a wikipage about his in French to
. (Most of
the French dont like to read any article if its not in French)
ThomasCarnnot, you are welcome to improve it :)
If we got enought material, Ill write something in FedoraNews (which
Im saying to ThomasChung since 2 weeks) to get it more support, even
from Fedora Users.
pop your suggestions :)
