This is really great news. I am a student of 4th semester B.Tech in
Information Technology at RCC Institute of Information Technology, Kolkata.
I am sure my college will jump at this idea. It will really be glad to host
Fedora conferences and seminars. We already have a functioning Linux Users'
Group and this will be an added boost. The students will also lap up the
idea of projects. I will definitely talk to the college authorities and let
you know the outcome.

Yours sincerely,
Dipanjan Chakraborty.
