   This is regarding the install fest and FAD at KGEC. The organizers have
arranged everything that we wanted. They have changed the venue to their LAB
where we will get
2 MBps internet connectivity. They have also managed to get funds in just 2
days and are arranging for food packets for everybody including the
participants. There is no participation fee for the event. Participation
well over 100 is expected. The FAD starts at 11:00 a.m and continues till
the evening with a break in between. The agenda is upon us to decide.

   Its an install fest cum FAD. So will definitely need all the help we can
get to man the booth in the morning and help out in the workshops as well.
Bring whatever slides you can. Will decide what exactly to do. The agenda I
was thinking is

 1> Introduction to Linux and Fedora (Arindam's slides)
 2> Installation(using DVD) and configuration( probably using a local
 3> Talk on Myths about Linux busted with Fedora (Subodip's slideshow)
 4> A demo and workshop on the various softwares and utilities.
 5> Talk on how to contribute to FOSS and how to join Fedora ( Possibly
using Satya's slides)

   The speakers are yet to be decided. All I know is that Debayan,
Ratnadeep, Kishan Goyal and me along with Indranil da are attending the
event. Don't know about Dipanjan or Sarbartha. hey haven't confirmed yet. I
want Indranil da to say something. Will talk to him tomorrow. Suggest
