Just to make sure this doesn't get lost in the noise...

Subject: Fedora-Related Speaking Opportunity
Date: Mon, 19 Jul 2004 13:49:04 -0400 (EDT)
I'm working as part of the Ohio LinuxFest team to coordinate this year's
event. We drew people from all throughout the Mid-West last year: Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Illinois.
We're planning an even bigger and better event for this year, with speaker
representation from the The Apache Software Foundation, Novell, Samba, and
more. We have confirmed talks from many authoritative speakers on many
interesting topics. The event is free to attend (registration required so
that we know how many to expect), and it will be held in Columbus, Ohio.
Our website is at http://www.ohiolinux.org/, so you can check us out.
I'd like to find a good speaker to represent the Fedora project, and I'm
hoping I might find a talkative Fedora developer here who is interested in
the opportunity. I'm open to many talk ideas, and if you happen to be an
eager Fedora devloper willing to talk at the event, I'd love to help you
secure a timeslot at the event this year if you can contact me off-list.
I myself use and love Fedora, and so I'd like to help make it happen.
In any case, I do hope I might hear from some of you. Tnx, in advance.

So we're finally giving Fedora significant prominence on redhat.com.
The Fedora page will be a positioning paragraph much like:
"Fedora is a Red Hat sponsored, community-developed..." blurb we usually
use, but we'll be adding a small widget of links to resources. I thought
it could link into the FAQs and Download section, but also to some of
the tertiary sites (fedoralegacy, linuxquestions.org etc).
What should those sites be? These would be unofficially official (whilst
still being officially unofficial), so they should be 4 or 5 sites we're
the most comfortable pointing folks at.
