I am working on a survey project to conduct study survey about usage of
popular computer software and perception of FOSS and GNU/Linux in minds of
Home Users, Students and professionals. With the cooperation of other Open
Source groups we are aiming to conduct the survey in maximum Universities
across Pakistan and IT public places.
I want to know if any of you ambassador fellow have done such activity or
can help me deploy a good survey to get productive results.
What we want to achieve from this survey is information about the computer
usage habits, preferred softwares, perception about Linux & willingness for
a better change. So, we can put our efforts on designing Workshops and
trainings targeted at the actual needs to get most out of our efforts.

Pardon my severe ignorance on the history and role of these pages, but
is there a formal or informal plan for someone in Marketing or some
other wiki-Gardener type person to update the
Template:FedoraVersionNumber page on release day?
Looking at the history of that page, it seems to always get done I was
just curious if there was a plan to update such pages and if someone
was already tasked with it ??
In yesterday's meeting I told Robyn I'd post to the list with a
status update for one-page release notes. You can find the F14 one
page release notes (predictably!) ;-) here:
We've certainly made some progress in the last 24 hours, thanks to all
those that helped. However, we could still use some additional work
on this page. Here are some of the tasks that need to be done, and we
need your help (attention, lurkers!) to finish them!
* Information in the desktop section.
Here's what Robyn and I wrote in yesterday's meeting minutes about
what to add here:
# IDEA: screenshot of a web browser, evolution client, and empathy
# IDEA: Desktop: Central focus -- you can get instant access to all
your favorite tools through the Web, email, and messaging --
stable as a rock and full of features (stickster, 20:24:09)
There may not be an enormous number of new productivity user feature
in F14 but the Desktop remains completely solid in this release -- a
place where people can really get done all the things they care
So, the text there needs to be written, and a screenshot made.
* Screenshots for sysadmin and developer sections.
Use your imagination for these. For example, do we have a way to
screenshot making a Fedora 14 instance on EC2? (Even a Fedora 13
instance would be OK, if the screenshot isn't so large as to be
glaring about the difference.) Another example for the developer
section might be a window shot of the GDB 'heap' command.
* Get more photos into the layout.
Robyn indicated a bunch of these had been picked out from recent
FUDCons so we could share them with the community in the one page
release notes. This is one of the best features of the document
* If needed, produce a PDF.
This might take some work from someone in Design, taking page
elements and putting them in Scribus or something else to produce a
beautiful front-and-back handout.

I've posted my interview with Justin Forbes at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_14_on_EC2. I have some bits to
pull in from that into the press blog piece of things, which I'm going
to do shortly (it's just about done) and then I'll ship that off to
Jared and Kara.
Have a great weekend, folks :)
I've been thinking about the "core" part in Fedora that was removed some
time ago (some 7-8 releases ago) but still hangs around here and there.
One place in particular is in package names. Fedora 14 for example have
"fc14" suffix, why not change this to "f14"?
