Hello pierros,

I will be away from 5th July until 23rd July.
We have your proposal for the distribution process.
Jörg wants to ensure we can send media to people, while I am away.
Felix volunteered, I am waiting for his "ok" and the shipping
destination address.
If I get the address from him, I will send out the media immediately.

Benefits I see:
- production of media and spins as proposed by ambassadors wishes (eg. spins)
- overview of fedora media production worldwide via wiki -> synergy
effect in future -> learn from others
- local access, local mindset, quick communication between wrangler
and company and local redhat office
- open process

Negatives I see:
- my attitude
- One ambassador responsible for (almost) the whole process
- action items pingpong-ing between mailing list and meetings
- ongoing process since 8 months with about 16 meetings, attendees
varied from every meeting (except abt. 3 regulars)

Let us together work on the negative points and turn the lessons we
all have learned into benefits again. :)

I am very happy for every help I can get, again thank you Chris and
Felix for your contributions.

best regards,

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / with kind regards,
Sascha Thomas Spreitzer
