Hi Jiri,

thank you for your welcome!

I have liked reading your words about people interested in technical aspects 
of Fedora, because I have to recognize that I'm a little bit worried about 
my lack of technical skills.

I didn't know anything about Fedora in social media and, obviously, that's 
something I'm very interested in. But I have some questions (and doubts) 
about it. This morning I have been reading about Fedora Project mission and 
its target audience, community, method and governance. The question is: 
would a Fedora official account at Facebook fit our Core Values? Is this 
kind of social networking service of interest for Fedora users?

Believe me, I'm not teasing, I'm just wondering about some marketing tools 
and their convenience in a project like this. But, in any case, I'd love to 
work in our presence in social media. You bet!

On the other hand, coordination in EMEA and the leaflets issue sound really 
great too so I'll be very happy working with you on these issues or anything 

Keep in touch!
