Don't dream that much about having things from the project as easily as
it seems to be told here.
We made an install party yesterday, in Paris, and requested schwags for
it a month or two before, and received nothing, not even any answer
telling us "sorry, we can't". Mandriva, a company which has GREATER
financial difficulties that RH in france, is making much more buzz and
that less difficulties to give things to people. I say "things" and not
"goodies" as they gave us (for free!) a router for an install party in
About DVDs, when I asked for them, I was asked to make them on my own so
as to be reimbursed. I send everything to famsco again and had NO answer

What's next ? And we have, now, to rely on William Hoffman inside RH
France to push everything forward. That is not acceptable, at all. I
really hope and really count on Thomas Tchung to change things inside

Just my 2 cents ....
