Brazilian ambassadors are working to organize a FAD during the 12th Free
Software International Forum a.k.a. FISL at Porto Alegre, Brazil [1].
The event will held from June 29th to July 2nd.

Slots for talks from Jared Smith and Dennis Gilmore have been granted by
the event organization if they are able to attend. Also a community
event for a general talk about Fedora is confirmed as well as a user
group where event attendees can stop by in order to talk to Fedora
contributors. In addition, local Fedora contributors submitted talks for
evaluation and the results will be given in a few weeks.

We are giving priority to fund contributors who filed tickets for FUDCon
Panama but did not get it [2] in order to give them equal opportunity to
attend to a Fedora event this year, as discussed on the local
ambassadors mailing list [3]. If additional budget is available we can
help others as well. 

Tickets were filed on FAmSCo Track instance for travel subsidies and
media production. A ticket for swag will be placed as soon as we get a
reply from the supplier. FAmSCo members discussed the FAD possibility on
the last meetings and decisions will be taken on the next one. Costs
estimative are available on a spreadsheet [4].


Kind regards,
