No doubt, part of what will come out of the EMEA FAD is a list of things 
that the EMEA community wants.

A subset of the things that the EMEA community wants will be things that 
it wants from Red Hat.

I hope that when that list is shared either during or after the FAD, 
that many of the things on that list will be possible to deliver, and to 
deliver in a relatively short timeframe.

I hope people realize that anywhere in the world, Red Hat wants to say 
"YES" to as many things as possible.  Sometimes legal issues force an 
answer of no, and that's unfortunate -- especially when folks in one 
region (like EMEA) don't agree with the legal decisions made based on 
the risk or laws of another region.

But there isn't a single person in the Fedora Project -- Red Hatter or 
otherwise -- who doesn't want the regional Fedora communities worldwide 
to successful.
