I've a modest proposal that consist in the merge of Fedora Ambassador
and Fedora Marketing mailing lists. The reson of this is that i've see
that many time the discussions are the same and it's seems to me as a
I think that if we want to work better we have to work togheter, put our
power into something and be sure that is no lost time.
Yes, if we consider it we have to consider to open ambassadors list to
non ambassador people (as marketing is). I think it will be a new step
to improve the project giving all interested people to join the project
and simplify the infrastructure.

Subject: [LT06-Pro-Announce] New Years Greetings
Here are some updates concerning LinuxTag2007:
Date: 04.01.2007 14:31
From: Marko Jung|LinuxTag <mjung(a)linuxtag.org>
on behalf of the LinuxTag-Team we send you the best wishes for the new year.
Last days we have got several phone calls concerning next LinuxTag. As
already announced by Nils during a 'lightning talk' at 23C3, the next
LinuxTag will take place from May 30th to June 2nd at Messe Berlin.
Actually we are negotiating terms and preparing the calls for participation.
So stay tuned, we will get back to you soon!
Wolfgang Drotschmann, Marko Jung
- LinuxTag Projects Team -
Please read the forwarded message first.
There are 10 points in the mail & these are my view on them:
Point 1: It is the main problem I think , because in the same day we have all
the lectures at Horizon at Dr. B. C. Roy Engineering College(the last day of
Horizon). I think we can interact with the students simultaneously with the
other MUKTI events are going on.
Point 2: Nothing to add..
Point 3: I can arrange volunteers from Linux User Group of Durgapur (
www.dgplug.org ) to give demo on Fedora :)
Point 4: Again no problem
Point 5: Hope here mirror means a local yum repo. Need some technical details
Point 6: I am sure Rahul will cover this in his talk :)
Point 7: No problem again...
Point 8: Sure , we can..
Point 9: Here I think may be some demo of the different apps present in Fedora
Extras will work.
Point 10: .....
Waiting for your reply(s). :)

Subject: Proposal for MUKTI '07
Date: Thursday 04 January 2007 01:45
From: "MUKTI NIT Durgapur" <mukti.nitdgp(a)gmail.com>

Happy New Year KD-da....
Firstly, we are sorry to reply late as it was new year time and we were
all having fun! :-) I hope you enjoyed too...
Nice to know that you are a part of this all. We were really not getting
the proper direction regarding this and now we feel much better to have you
We were quite uncertain about the outcome of the conversations that we
had with Sushmit and in my mail I had primarily and completely put in words
the proposals we had been offered over phone. But we felt that these ideas
were not good enough in the long term relationship between the Fedora
Community and Linux Users' Group, NIT Durgapur. In retrospection, we
(Sushmit and us) believe that we should be sharing a much longer and
fruitful relationship. Now that we find you, we are sure that you can show
us the proper direction and thus we send you our first actual and official
proposal. Please do suggest us on how we can improve on this and extend this
1) We would like to declare 15th of February, 2007 as the "Fedora Day at NIT
2) By the virtue of the above me mean, that the Fedora Community may utilise
this day as a part of their program to promote "FLOSS" and Fedora.
3) The Fedora Community can actually organise some sessions on hands on
training on Fedora for newbies to attract them to GNU/Linux.
4) We believe this to be an interaction session between the contributors and
the fresh enthusiasts to inspire them to work for the community.
5) Sankarshan-da said : "How about setting up a Fedora mirror internally
for Fedora Users ? That should enable a lot of students to use Fedora
and probably find enough bugs to keep the developers busy"
We are interested to do this and we do have our own server. Can you throw
light on this as to what the requirements are.
6) We would also like a member of Linux Users' Group, NIT Durgapur to be a
Fedora Ambassador. Will you kindly suggest the ways in which this can be
7) The community can freely distribute any material for Fedora promotion as
per their will.
8) We can have some inspiring talks on how FLOSS is important for a country
9) We can have interesting talks on how students of different departments
like Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering get benefited by the use of
10) We warmly welcome the whole community to visit and grace MUKTI '07 and
collaborate with us in the spreading of the philosophy. All the interested
students from the Fedora Community can mingle with the 2,500+ participants
to share their view points.
We look forward to your constructive suggestions and hope that this becomes
and very fruitful endeavour for both of us.
We have always stood up and fought for the importance and greatness of the
FLOSS philosophy and we really believe we can do it better by sharing the
platform with you all.
Thanking you in anticipation

Fedora Ambassador, India
Hi India Ambassadors...
To give a fresh start with the new year to the FreeMedia program in India...
every month we are flooded with requests from India... there are many
ambassadors in India and if they can manage to accept only a few requests
every month we can make this program a success...
I have put a Distribution Team section from now on for every month whenever
you accept a request you can put your name in that month if it isn't already
I am currently in talk with LUG,Durgapur on the occasion of their
'National level annual technical symposium on GNU/Linux and related
Free and Open Source Software(FOSS)."
Here is the link
They want a team from us to work with them...right from the registration desk...
So we need members,volunteers on
this occasion. This is a tentative proposal, but i have talked to them
over phone and
they want to know about the team and tentative proposals from us...
So I need members and suggesions about our proposal to them.
Thanks and regards,
Hi! My name is Giuseppe Pignataro.I'm 22.
I'm a industrial graphic, a semi-pro photographer, a photographic
advisor and a IT consulent.
I live in Italy.
I belong to many open projects like the translation of KDE in Italian
and some project that are hosted on sourceforge.I have made translation
for some plugin for Joomla
I'm also member of Free Software Foundation.
I use Fedora from the first release.And I think is the best distro that
the community can have.
For this I have decided to give my contribution to this project.
I have decided to becoma a Fedora Ambassador after having read an
interview on an Italian magazine(LINUX PRO) I have read the words of
Jack Aboutboul and of Karsten Wade and some of concept that they have
said are the same in which I believe.
I think we can make a good work together.
Ok! That's all folks!!!!!!

So sad to hear that...Anyways as you all will be there,it will be just
splendid if you can somehow manage a couple of hours on 15th....
And another thing, can you please take the role of
primary contact of this event? As you will be there at that time
and I may not be available ... :(
So if you do agree I shall tell the organisers to clarify things with
you instead of me...

May we reach out to a few new people.
