I propose collecting user testimonials as a way to promote Fedora.
Actual people commenting on their experience can be a powerful
Of course these would have to be anonymous unless otherwise specified.
Ways of collecting them could include an email address, web
forum/comment form, etc.
Yet another big Fedora deployment
"Holmwood wrote that the full rollout will take place in January and
will involve more than 400 machines running Fedora Linux on the desktop
across about 80 branches nationally.
The Fedora Project is a community-driven Linux distribution started by
Red Hat. Although not supported by Red Hat, company engineers work on
Fedora, which is "one of the sources for new technologies and
enhancements that may be incorporated into Red Hat Enterprise Linux in
the future", according to the project's Web site."
Thank you very much for your request. If you wish to represent Fedora
to Europeans and to French people in particular, this can be arranged
You can become Fedora Ambassador and we will help you out with
materials as far as we can.
Please read the HowTo page carefully and be sure you have the time and
resources to be an Ambassador. If you think you are up for it, please
send me an email off-list and I will get you all set up.
Please also pay special attention to who else is already active in
your region. You may want to get in touch with them for guidance as
you get started.

Fedora Users and Developers Conference
I have registered to give a talk on the Fedora Project at foss.in/2005
If I can get the slides of previous talks on Fedora from somewhere that
would be really useful.
Also, if people would tell me what people usually talk about as the
positive parts of fedora, that would be REALLY helpful.
Hell, I may need a mentor on this. (to at least torture in #fedora-mktg
and check rough drafts of my slides).
As this is an indian event, the audience will be more pro debian than
usual. I have ot get a draft of the slides in by wednesday night
Thanks for any help
