and do pour in your comments or suggestions on this.

Fedora FOSDEM team)
I've the pleasure to invite you and join forces to talk about your
beloved OS and how to work and improve it. MaxSpevack and TomTromey
are travelling from US to be among us as well. ThomasCanniot will sing
to us the great work achieved by the French Community and what they
are planning to do in the near future. He will also talk about the
infrastructure given to local teams and how they made use of it. We
have many colleagues from the Fedora Engineering Team to show you what
they are doing and planning to do.
The complete Fedora Schedule can be found here:
We will also be at the Fedora booth and invite you to come and share
your ideas and experience to us.
Look forward to seeing you & the other speakers later in the month!

The local websites should be handled by local Fedora people, most likely
Again, this is the action plan we've seen in Brazil and proved feasible:
1) 3 or more local Ambassadors initial gathering
2) local Ambassadors list creation
3) agreement on local Fedora activities
4) local Fedora website creation
5) local sub-projects representation i.e. free media distro, native lang
documentation, translation, events, etc
6) website maintenance
7) new Ambassadors joining

Hello fedora people :)
Well I'm forwarding this mail to this mailing list, in search for
concrete opinions about cooperation between fedora and opensuse from
the Fedora Engineering Team or Fedora Ambassadors.
Suggestions are welcome, however flame wars aren't :)
I've already accepted at least the meeting :)

Subject: Fedora & openSUSE meeting / cooperation ?
I have heard that Fedora will be also on the FOSDEM 2007 like openSUSE is.
What do you think when we do a meeting there, either in small or large group,
to discuss ways and possibilities how we can cooperate ?
I do see fields like a common customer hardware database or our openSUSE build
service, which does support Fedora builds as well as discussion points. But
there are for sure more fields where we could maybe cooperate in a way which
gives us a win-win situation.
Do you have interest in such a discussion ?

I would just like to notify you the good job that Ubuntu community is doing
again and again.
Ok, it is true that the Fedora wiki site is usefull.
However it is usefull mostly for Fedora people not for newbies.
Thinks as a newbie or simple visitor and ask you what you would think if you
would go to the fedoraproject web site in order to retreive the basics.
Look a little bit on what ubuntu community is doing, obviously they have
kept their wiki but they have also created simple websites which are
specific to a country in order to be closer to people of that area and who
are interesting to know a little bit more what is ubuntu or to install it.
Thinks again as a newbie or simple visitor and ask you the question if you
will trust a community which is situated far away or a community which is
This is an example of what is done by Ubuntu in Belgium
i wondering what Fedora is doing
The goal here is not to blame Fedora community, you are doing great job. :)
No, the goal here is to be reactive !
Tell me what you think about it.
personally I think we have to decide what to do latest on FOSDEM in
PS.: Is Red Hat this year part of Linuxtag????

> Dear Project,
> with this mailing we would like to inform you about:
> o Call for Projects
> o Project Workshops
> 1. Call for Projects
> Today we start the official 'Call for Projects' to exhibit at the
> 13th LinuxTag, May 30 - June 3, 2007 at Messegelände unter dem Funkturm,
> Berlin, Germany. Detailed information can be found at LinuxTag's website
> . Please take a look at our terms and read the FAQ. (An English
> translation of the FAQ will be provided soon.)
> The project committee has a very hard job to decide for some projects
> whether they will get a booth (sponsored by LinuxTag) or we have to
> charge them for it because of its strong commercial background. This
> decision is not easy to make and differs in each case, but we try to
> make it fair for everybody. Therefore we have updated the Virtual
> Conference Center  with some new questions concerning your projects
> contributors and community. By providing us as much information as
> possible, you can help us to ensure that only non-commercial projects
> can benefit from the sponsored booths.
> You should submit your application as soon as possible, because first
> application round ends February 23, 2007.
> 2. Project Workshops
> We would like to remember you not to forget to register for project
> workshops. Similar to the years before we will offer you so called
> "Workshop Rooms". Our plan is to jointly organise a "projects to
> projects program" or "developer to developer program". As last year the
> schedule will be published on LinuxTag's website, so the schedule will
> be announced more widely.
> The main purpose for these rooms is to provide attending projects an
> opportunity to talk to other developers (not necessarily from the same
> project) and to go into detail for a larger group than what would be
> possible at the booth. Please note: all workshops will be open to the
> public and will be announced so. In special cases we can make an
> exception, but we would like to discuss this in detail with you, if you
> think a session should be non-public. LinuxTag provides presentation
> equipment and probably Internet connectivity for all five rooms. You can
> register for a workshop using your VCC-account and submit it like a
> paper using category "Project Workshop". Normally a slot is 60 Minutes,
> if your workshop takes longer leave us a note within your abstract. Also
> do so, if you have a preference for the day.
> You can neglect the licence because it is not planned to distribute your
> submission (like a paper for the conference program). But please do not
> forget to choose the language for your workshop submission. English may
> be your language of choice, but it is a valuable information for an
> interested visitor.
> Please register as soon as possible.
> If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
