I want to announce and remind everyone that the Central Pennsylvania
Open Source Conference is going to be in Harrisburg PA (that's in the
US) this coming Sunday. The CPOSC is open to all ends of the Open
Source spectrum, from applications to low level hardware and a whole
smattering of IT. Fedora will be sponsoring the event this year, and
we'll be hosting a small table for all things Fedora as well.
We currently are already staffed and have everything running on
schedule (so far), and we have volunteers already for manning our
table.. Still, we love seeing faces of Fedora users. If you want to
come help out, show up wearing a Fedora T-shirt or your trusty
Todd M Zullinger mentioned that he would like to hold a relatively
informal keysigning. If you want to participate, bring a copy of your
PGP and some form of photo ID.
There will be a get together of out of town guests and any locals with
some free time Saturday, the night before. We'll be meeting at a
bar/restaurant near the conference hall, although more details are to
I look forward to seeing you there!
This is a heads-up for a Fedora event which will take place this weekend.
On the weekend of 11 and 12 of October, the Greek Fedora team will be
having a workshop in Patras, Greece, for the upcoming release of
Fedora 10. The weekend will be devoted to coding, testing,
documenting, translating, marketing etc for the November release. The
goal of the event is: "Get stuff done".
Depending on the people attending, the goals will be decided on the
spot, however, it's pretty certain we'll work on testing Fedora 10 on
OLPC, Greek and Brazilian Portuguese translations for Fedora 10, and
organization of Fedora's presence at Athens Digital Week.
The hackfest will begin on Saturday, 9am and end on Sunday 7pm. Pizzas
and drinks will be generally available. Anyone who'd like to
participate online will find us on #fedora-el on Freenode. Saturday
evening we'll go to a remote village to eat fresh steaks.
Accommodation for Saturday night is available to anyone who might need

I just sent, trough Jeffrey, a letter with some thoughts before the beginning.
Now I want to publicly express my thanks to who had attended it and
for the people who wasn't able to be there but supported it.
Enjoy your last hours at the event!

It's our Eid <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eid_ul-Fitr#South_Asia> holiday
(like Christmas) is going on. I was busy arranging/buying gifts for my
family and was unable to send my F10 Release Party Budget preview withing
the given time frame. Though I'm sending this in this hope, if FAmSCO
considers my event since I had arranged a successful F9 release party and
have enlisted my event (in the wiki) prior to Q3 Budget draft.
Just a recap of F9 Release
we had more than 60 enthusiast joined the party. We had distributed DVD, had
live USB stick creation station, had 3 talks/presentation, QA, had
soft-drinks only without any snacks. Printed Digital banners and have had
sent event report to this list.
This time we are expecting approx. 100 Fedora lovers. The venue is in midst
of two universities (Dhaka university and Bangladesh University of
Engineering and Technology) which will definitely attract more presence, and
moreover the venue is free of cost (as Francesco Ugolini suggested). We are
thinking of 100 T-Shirts, which would cost 2 US$ if made locally.
The draft budget preview:
Banner / Flyer / Sticker - 50 US$
Blank DVD for burning (100 pcs) - 50 US$
T-Shirt (100 pcs) - 200 US$
Drink / Snacks (1 US$ per head) - 100 US$
The total would be around within 400 US$ approx.
