And everyone else, actually.
If you have time, please check out Colin's work at:
I think this is an excellent document for "what it means to be a CMC."
If you think a CMC's duties need more definition, please feel free to edit
If you think that this captures the CMC's duties well, then we need to
start recruiting CMCs and getting them onto the CMC list. Send them
Colin's way and he'll take care of them.

I regret that I may not make today's meeting, due to weakening health
(think headache, bones aching, etc... caused by recent hobby)
In lieu, Greg or Rahul will run/chair it.
I understand that Jack (co-Lead) is also recovering from being sick, so
send him your well wishes

Será que é possivel conseguir junto a Red hat apoio financeiro para divulgação
do Fedora Core aqui no Brasil?
Estou pensando em participar de alguins eventos e fazer material de divulgação
do Fedora (cds, panfletos, camisas).
Tenho o meu grupo de estudos aqui na faculdade e agora como ja me formei,
queria me dedicar mais aos projetos de software livre.
Seria interessante conseguir cds do fedora e distribuir para as turmas dos
primeiros periodos da faculdade.
Seria muito interessante isso... daria uma grande divuglação.

* Mentors - Patrick has been contacted, so there's some mild success.
Marc will contact everyone by next meeting, and report progress. Do we
need a mailing list where all mentor traffic is cc'ed to or does that
sequester mentor traffic? Help in public might be intimidating, so 1:1
email might be better. Mentors will provide a list of required reading
Action: So, fedora-mentors-list(a)redhat.com for mentors and mentees to go
to if confused. private 1:1 chats can happen, with a summary (faq
styled, onus on mentee), to go to fedora-mentors-list. Greg sent for
list creation immediately, kudos.
Lead: Marc Wiriadisastra
Co-Lead: Patrick Barnes
* FUDCon schedule is finalised. Rahul will send to other news sites, and
create the list of standard sites to send PR to. Why are registrations
<lxmaier> a) predict number of people who show up
<lxmaier> b) collect email addresses for future reference
* CMC's and trusting translations:
1. Clear positioning statements
2. Empowerment of individuals to be wrong.
3. A strong culture of KNOWING the good word of Fedora.
ACTION: Colin to incpororate the "code of good behaviour" into the CMC
ACTION: Greg to request a fedora-cmc-list, private list for CMC's,
similar setup to fedora-maintainers
ACTION: Add: frequently made mistakes, what to say/what not to say,
responses to FAQs, avoid BIG MISTAKES
Some BIG MISTAKES (gdk):
1. Directing people to copyright/patent infringing code.
2. Not using the Red Hat name in vain.
3. "don't go sending people to legally infringing content in our name".
Be aware of Trademark guidelines and ForbiddenItems (on Wiki). Make sure
we STRESS on the BIG MISTAKES
Idea: <lxmaier> we can request that beginning CMCs CC one of the
marketing mentors when they do their evangelizing
Karsten asks if CMCs can send people to forbidden stuff in their own
name. Marc, Patrick, Alex, says no. Greg mentions that we should wait
for the FF to be established.
<gregdek> A stray mention of FORBIDDENITEMS right now could expose RH to
a shitload of litigation.
Let CMCs know the landscape now, and that it will change soon
* Swag, skipped again
* Logo: Frist draft from a Real Designer(TM) available soon. We can't
place a vote on logos, as establishing a brand is something that
professionals spend a lot of money to do. Folks will have input, and if
a huge majority of folk *hate* the logo, it will be killed
* fedoralinks.org has links; does it need further fedora-ification?
Poking hrishi/dfong might be useful. Bob mentions 278 votes collected,
majority for this site design
* Fedora Marketing Kit: different purposes, different kits, but similar
0. Those not on Linux
1. Novice end users
2. Developer/sysadmin types
3. Potential individual contributors - no single path/defined way of
doing "cool stuff" for FC. HelpWanted page helps?
4. Potential business contributors
* Meeting is now weekly, not bi-weekly. See you all next week
