Here is a copy of my proposal to the foss.in for the Fedora Miniconf.  
If there are any corrections to the proposal, please contact me
offlist.  I have been informed that my talk (yet to be listed) and
Saleem Ansari's talks (already listed) have been selected for the main
conference.   Note that for all speakers in the miniconf, foss.in will
not sponsor you but Fedora Project (specifically, community architecture
team) can take of care delegate fees, travel and accommodation
expenses.  If you need to be sponsored,  please file a ticket with an
estimate at https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-india/ after the miniconf is
published on 8th of November so that we can do a budget estimate.   If
anyone has any questions, do let me know.


Mini Conf Topic: Fedora Project
Type: Technical
