The Indian team for cultural freedom day is planning an online event
on 20th May. Primarily it includes Women in Free s/w and Culture
(wfs-india.dreamwidth.org), Kolkata GLUG, Mozilla, Gnome and I want
to include Fedora as well.
So far we 3 free s/w related event proposals and 1 culture-free s/w
related proposal. More of the latter type will be able to help us
extend the free s/w network instead of strengthening existing ones.
1. more event proposals
2. Fedora T-shirts etc to be given as prizes for certain events.
Who can supply these?
3. I am not sure about what Mozilla can offer
(I know since we have little time what else can be done ... esp about funds )
Essential points of the irc meeting will be out soon.
Please reply soon.
