Work already Done:
1) Having Successfully conducting an installfest in KGEC. Details:
2) Setting up a computer in the college Library which has public
access with a poster as "Maintained by GNU/LUG of KGEC". It is under
our full control. Link for Pictures:
3) Getting the support of college and there will be no objections.
(but with no funds. We may have to manage funds even for Workshops)
4) No. of Computers expected:
a) 15-20 in CSE Lab.
b) more than 5 in EE Lab.
**** We will approach with this concepts to other departments
also for their labs. (IT, MCA, ECE, ME)
**** Each computer will have the label as "Maintained by GNU/LUG
5) Starting the Linux For You Magazine in college. starting next
6) We have the full fedora repo (25 GB) for Intel architecture.
7) We have loads of many other different distributions.
8) We already have few interested members for the core committee.
(They are also Linux users but with not sufficient knowledge.)
9) I am a Fedora Ambassador and am trying to help them.
10) The Official Inauguration will be done in the 2nd week of April
(date not yet Fixed, Proposals welcome)
11) To manage the required funds, there's a option to apply membership
Pros and Cons We think:
1) The core-Committee members can have live experimentation on the
college computers and get things working.
2) Students who don't have computers or is not willing to experiment,
will also get the opportunity to gain the knowledge and necessary
3) We can deploy industry standard mechanisms to help maintain
4) The core-committee members become experts and there is a chain
effect followed by them.
5) Free Publicity through Posters about KGEC LUG.
1) The LUG will be more like an organization and not a group.
2) If we lack response, it may be difficult.
We are also thinking of organizing classes and workshops which depends
on response and interest in core-committee.
We have seen the enthusiasm in students during installfest and so, we
are hoping for a Success..
The Official Inauguration will be done in the 2nd week of April (date
not yet Fixed, Proposals welcome). We will also include FOSS events
during this time and I also request the FOSS community to help me out
with the events
Suggestions are Welcome as reply..
At the beta readiness meeting today we spoke briefly about the news
distribution network. One of the points that was brought up was whether
or not we could work together with the Fedora L10N team to translate
some of the stories from english to other languages or vice-versa and
how we could work together in the future.
What do people think about this? Also, for people involved in the News
Distribution Network, would you be interested in having things
translated to your language or for your language?
Diego do you want to add anything?
(First off I want to thank everybody for helping the process to opening
up image submissions go smoothly :) We have a couple of entries on the
submission talk page that people would like to see if there is interest
for those photos in the book. Go make comments on the talk page:
I've started the account registration process with Lightning Source
(LSI). They sent along this file that will be necessary to read for
information regarding our book.
If you'll be helping with the design or layout of the book please give
that a read. We don't need to worry about it too much now but it's a
good idea to keep it in the back of your mind when doing mockups or
looking at photos.

Another post reninforcing the idea of meritocracy over democracy in Fedora
"Many people mistakenly think that open source projects are emergent,
self-organized and democratic. The truth is just the opposite: most are
run by a benevolent dictator or two. What makes successful open source
projects is leadership, plain and simple. One or two people articulate a
vision, start building towards it and bring others on board with
specific tasks and permissions. The best projects are the ones with the
