As we discussed during the last meeting, we only used 1/3 of our budget
As it was proposed before FUDCon, it would be REALLY nice to produce a
massive ammount of SWAG in onle place and have it shipped ti all the
other regions. If that is too expensive, we could do the production in
each country and get it redistributed locally.
The idea is great! There are two problems:
1 - Some ppl said that it would not be nice spending the budget just
because in massive SWAG just because we did not spend it so far.
I strongly disagree here, and am forwarding this message from another
region to show you there's nothing wromg with that. I mean, we need
SWAG, so let's make sure ambassadors have SWAG, right?
2 - Someone said in the past that we could not pay in advance, and since
this would be too expensive, it would be nice to have the card holder
directly paying for it, what I heard it's not possible.
We could use online companies in each country and get Neville to process
all the payments and have it shipped to a local ambassador who would
later distribute it among other ambassadors in the country (mail,
events, etc). What is the problem here? I see nothing wrong. We do have
a CC limit, so we should start doing it ASAP, if we want to do that for
this FY. But it would be something really nice to do in the end of each
FY provided we have remaining budget.
Any thoughts? I would love to hear Neville's input here as well.
Thanks guys :)

As we mentioned this topic in our last EMEA meeting, I was wondering if
we can make some progress with it. I know there maybe an issue with
budget wise, but maybe we can handle this for the next fiscal year?

thank you for participating. Albania, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo,
Poland and Serbia is on that list.
However these countries represent only a specific portion of the EMEA
region. We wish to support as many active Fedora communities as
possible. If yours is missing, please fill in the wiki page below
until this Tuesday (19/Jan).
Where will all these be produced? Well, I'm willing to get quotes from
Greek vendors, pick the best option, produce and ship everything from
there. Unless another person steps up and co-ordinates the whole
production in their country instead.
Your feedback and ideas are certainly welcome.
