First, stop cross posting.
the things i noted where
1.Being a fedora ambassador means just you
have to spread the Foss culture in around your city.
Definitely a wrong
We do not limit the ambassadors about what they are going to do.
If you are comfortable within the campus, we have no problem as long
as you are doing it well.
But campus ambassador
program is different, we spread the Foss ideas to students who in turn
return back by contributing to them(Foss).
Another wrong assumption is people other
than students does not
contribute back. They indeed do.
so what i essentially say is that
the idea of having a tech talk per semester will workout.but that is not
enough.Clearly introducing the students to these Foss culture say For just
one time per semester alone is not enough.what happens when they are stuck
in a problem . These things are new to them.you may say mailing lists are
there .But it takes time for new users to adapt themselves to Foss kind of
environment.so why cant we have a Fedora Activity day one per semester
consisting of tech talks and introduction to Foss .
Why indeed? Who in the world has told you that you can not have one/a
couple of Fedora Activity Days / semester?
2.The discussion groups is not only
problem solving.it also essentially consist of discussion of fedora
activities,new Foss technology, etc.i strongly recommend these groups also
be funded.Because if someone is facing a problem and someone from the same
college/university is there who can help out ,then it is going to help a lot
in spreading Fedora and Foss.
it is not going to be the heavy budget though. say $5 or $4 at the maximum
that is going to cost for the purpose of printing posters , banners etc.this
way we can easily spread the word in our colleges.
You can always request stuff at https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-india/
as long as you are clear about why you need that and you submit the
3.we can have yearly meet for the
of the same country where in they can discuss the future planning etc..
This is a costly idea. :)
However, in case there be FUDCon, the above requirement will certainly
4.the campus-ambassadors(students) who
their worth in general can get some internship in Redhat or say even
Discounts for Redhat GLS.
That is not something we can comment on.
But just to clarify, here in India, we don't want a repeatation of sun
5.we need more often to discuss these sort of
ideas in the mailing lists and IRC.
Sure, but have a look at the
