There is a FAmSCo proposal of cleaning-up the the list. Chitlesh made a
first start in 2006 and maybe we are going to continue. It's not a
about "active vs. inactive", only about to delete very old request for
being an ambdassador
There is no list about the probationary period of ambassadors.
Linux Solutions at Paris
Everything is getting ready slowly as usual. But they are ready and will
have 8 ambassadors on the booth, which is huge. They are only waiting
for DVD from GeroldKa / Max and everything will be perfect.
There are very cheap hotel in the suburb of Brussels, where MrTom will
spend the night with other French Ambassadors. It's also a pitty that we
can't stay all together, but OK, it depends on every portmonnaie. But in
my eyes THIS is an issue which must be solved by the organizing
Chemnitzer LinuxTage 2008
They received our approval for a booth. Ambassadors are JoergSimon,
RobertScheck, JensKuehnel and a last chance for DanielKretschmer. They
will get a OLPC from RH Munich. They have banners and will get 100 DVDs
GeroldKa talked this afternoon with FlorianBrand and he trys to get a
OLPC for the EMEA Ambassadors from JanWildeboer but he needs his next
week for an event. FlorianBrand will inform kital later on, when he
kwnos exactly when the OLPC is in Stuttgart.
Booth has been confirmed and we are enough people to handle the booth.
Till now, we have no media and no swag. The plan was to use media from
the same order as for the other European events. Posters are ready and
we will get banners, too. AlanCox will be there.
Lolug (a week ago) ask him to do a speech about fedora and fedora
project. He would like to invite other ambassadors from Italy (maybe
from north of Italy), or forward invitation through various local lug
mailing lists. He will send an email to fedora-ambassadors ml with
event details and I'll start process to request dvds and so on...
Same status as last year :-) Unfortunately the german departments
haven't answered yet.
1) increase fedora visibility under some "very used social networks"
(linked and flickr in particular...)
2) discover how many “fedora enthusiasts” are over social networks and
how many of these read fedora-ambassadors and fedora-mkrt mailing list
If you search “fedora” you can find about 450 people but only 35 are
subscribed to fedora group.
for the moment we have 3 managers: FrancescoCrippa, PascalCalarco and
the Fedora Ambassadors group has 4 members; the Fedora Rocks group has:
636members, the Fedora Users group 234 and the Fedora-Linux group 71
Invitation of "VIPs" (like JimWhitehurst or other important people in
fedora...Max, Paul, etc...)
Next meeting (so far)
2008-02-13 - 20.00 UTC
