Hi Python SIG!
Over in Marketing, we've been having some discussion about creating
talking points for our Ambassadors to help show people how Fedora and
Python go great together.
We've got a few ideas together so far, but we were wanting to get some
more opinions and thoughts from you all on this. Some of our ideas were
seeing if you all were interesting in putting on another porting vFAD
like what happened a few months ago, and then we help put a little more
press and marketing before and after the event too. In addition to
helping actually move more Python2 packages to Python3, it could also be
a great way to show people how Fedora is current and helping assist with
the migration. But we wanted to see if this was something feasible to
Finally, we are also trying to compile a list of talking points
(generally speaking) for Python, and there is currently a draft for
these things on the wiki. If you all could look over these and add your
input, it would be well-appreciated!
Thanks all, looking forward to hear your responses and ideas.

OSAS is in the process of creating a Community Branding Book, similar to
the Red Hat Branding Book used by Red Hat's Marketing. This publication
will be hosted on the Community site (community.redhat.com) as a PDF and a
page, sectioned off by project, so each project is free to take the content
and host it wherever they want.
For Fedora, I would like the marketing team to examine the messaging
portion of the book (excerpted below) and confirm Fedora is properly

how it works with other OSAS projects, and then in discrete 25-, 50-, and
Please review ASAP and let me know what, if any, changes you might have.
What it does in simple terms
The Fedora Project is a community project that leads the advancement of
free and open source software and content. The Fedora community produces
and releases a complete Linux-based operating system. This distribution
incorporates leading-edge technologies that are built by Free software
developers around the globe. The Fedora project contributes everything it
builds back to the Free and open source world, and anyone can participate.
How it works with other community projects
Innovation through Fedora often forms the basis for many Red Hat open
source projects, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and Project
Atomic. Fedora is highly adaptive and it involved in the development stage
of nearly every Red Hat-sponsored open source project.

Hi Jan, I'd be happy to serve as a volunteer from FAmNA Ambassadors.
Although it definitely would be a good idea for some of the other
regions to have representatives as well if there are others who will be
around for the meeting. :)
I can also help serve as a representative of Marketing / Magazine
(having a Magazine post in place for the announcement is definitely a
*must*), as well as Community Operations. I am sure others from both
teams will be in attendance, but I can confirm I'll be there to
represent from those two teams as well.
Thanks for spreading the word about this!

My name is Paul Reynand Magahis from Philippines and my FAS account is
"paulreynand". I'm a Fedora user for quite a while now. I've been involved
in some open source events in the past such as Linux Day and Software
Freedom Day, doing some technical talks in schools and in other local Linux
User's Group propagating the good things about open source since 2002 until
Currently im working as full time Red Hat Instructor in Microgenesis
Software Inc, one of the RHT Partner in PH.
My goal is to continue to spread the good things about Fedora in our
country. I will help them realize that Fedora is the most advance
community base distro out there and is the future of Enterprise Linux.
Thanks and Regards,
I was curious to know if the official time for our meetings will shift
because of Daylight Savings Time in the US? We are currently meeting at
22:00 UTC for both Marketing and the Magazine, which was relating to
17:00 US EST.
However, thanks to Daylight Savings Time, 22:00 UTC now means 18:00 US
EST (or 6pm US EST). What time are we meeting at, or what works best for
the largest number of people?

Please take this to marketing@ - and before we create new things, we
need to do a little sanity checking and such.
1) How are we managing the new accounts?
2) Who has the "keys" to the account?
a) We need more than one person, and ideally folks who are
"accountable" to Fedora. (e.g., Matthew Miller, someone on the council,

I'm all for "claiming" Fedora on new services, but we need to be smart

Join us on irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting for the Fedora 24 Alpha
Release Readiness Meeting meeting.
The meeting is going to be held on Thursday, March 17, 2016 19:00 UTC.
Please check the [FedoCal] link for your time zone.
We will meet to make sure we are coordinated and ready for the Alpha
release of Fedora 24 on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016. Please note that
this meeting is going to be held even if the release is delayed at the
Go/No-Go meeting on the same day two hours earlier.
You may received this message several times, but I was asked to open
this meeting to the teams and I'll also hope this will raise awareness
and more team representatives will come to this meeting. This meeting
works best when we have representatives from all of the teams.
Thank you for your support and Regards, Jan
