I am planning on holding an awareness program on fedora open source utilization and its benefits compared to proprietory software. the awareness program will be targeted at ICT-inclined undergraduate and postgraduate students in the Lagos State University.
Undergraduates are the future ICT decision formulators.
I presently work n the Lagos State University, ICT Center as a Network Administrator. All our servers run on open-source platform.
I need to know how to get funding for the materials e.g. live CDs and DVDs and other promotional kits that I will be using for the event.

Budgetary needs (please):
$150 Snacks and sodas of some kind

save a few dollars on volume production?)
I already have all the equipment necessary to provide a "make a

improvements offered by the latest Fedora, say about 15 minutes in

<fugolini> So, roll call:
<fugolini> fabian_a: thank you
<fugolini> Great, first of all I want to thank all of you for your attention
<fugolini> I've to be sincere when I say that I had no time to write the
<fugolini> but sincerely this week there weren't so bidg discussions or
<fugolini> ok, that's the meeting's agenda:
<fugolini> 1. Budget
<fugolini> 2. FAmSCo Election
<fugolini> 2. Release Parties updates
<fugolini> For the budget side there isn't anything special
<jmbuser> JohnBabich - better late than never
<fugolini> jmbuser: no problem, you are in time
<fugolini> Currently the reimbursmets are going well enough
<fugolini> and we are received good reports by events owner
<fugolini> Unfortunately Max is currently holding a meeting and he isn't
able to attend this meeting.
<fugolini> But I'm sure that the complete situation
<fugolini> Any question from the budget side?
<fugolini> I have to add only a small thing: actually many people who
want to hold an event in Q3
<fugolini> but they post their request in the previous week
<fugolini> couldn't be able to get resources from FAmSCo
<fugolini> I'm sorry with that, just because our goal is to satisfy the
Ambassadors interest, but we have to guarantee continuity
<fugolini> and we have to respect the Budget and FY schedules
<fugolini> I'm sorry with all the people, but I hope everyone will
<fugolini> It seems burocracy but it's the only way to get resources
<fugolini> Anything to say?
<fugolini> MrTom: have you something to say about budget?
<fugolini> or can we talk about the next topic?
<MrTom> no i did not have time to look at it by the way
<MrTom> move on
<fugolini> MrTom: no problem
<fugolini> 2. FAmSCo Election
<fugolini> I'm sure it's the best time to discuss about this topic
<fugolini> You probably noticed this one in Fedora Advisory List and
Marketing List too
<fugolini> and I'm sure it's one of the most crucial community activity
<fugolini> I want, with your support, to define something e.g. helping
figure out a schedule proposal to send to Fedora Board
<fugolini> and just try to organize something to help Ambassadors
understanding the importance of the election
<AndreasR> we were voted by the board.. how could we help.. that's an
boardissue in my eyes.. or do I understand something wrong
<fugolini> AndreasR: I think as part of Fedora we need to help the Board
taking this decision
<fugolini> just because it's a FAmSCo chair duty to call for election
<fugolini> after have discussed with all the others FAmSCo members
<AndreasR> ahhh okay.. eof :)
<fugolini> I think board have to steer this process because it's the
first time we have a more than one project elections
<fugolini> I see there are several *SCo and part of the board
<fugolini> and I'm sure it could help keeping people interested by elections
<fugolini> stickster: anything yet decided for elections?
<fugolini> stickster: sorry if I'm disturbing you, just to have some
waypoints to follow
<fugolini> Ok, just move one
<fugolini> Anything to say from that perspective?
<fugolini> Personally I replied to FAdvisory List giving my personal opinion
<Southern_Gentlem> fugolini, yes i hope they are not till january
because here in the USA we are up to our noses in elections
<fugolini> a perfect election have to be hold in the late november,
first weeks of december (just before cristhmas)
<fugolini> Southern_Gentlem: ah ok
<fugolini> just perfect
<Southern_Gentlem> totally disagree
<Southern_Gentlem> same reason listed above
<Southern_Gentlem> yes i know the fedora elections are small to national
elections but i am already have election burnout
<fugolini> Southern_Gentlem: I didn't notice the US elections
<fugolini> so, you are right
* fugolini know there will be US elections, just didn't think about it
for *SCos elections
<jmbuser> Likewise, I'm trying how to vote absentee ballot - big
distraction, but a good one
<jmbuser> to figure out how, that is
<Southern_Gentlem> jmbuser, i thought that had to be in on last monday
<jmbuser> Depends on the home state
<fugolini> ah ok
<fugolini> so, do you agree with me let Board schedule everything, maybe
we could just give our opinion
<fugolini> in Advisory list if needed
<fugolini> Ok, so this will be our move
<fugolini> towards the Fedora elections
<fugolini> Last, known, topic:
<fugolini> 2. Release Parties updates
<fugolini> There aren't big updates since the last week
<fugolini> I think it would be better to add this topic to FWN and maybe
asking to add this activity in the Press Release
<fugolini> Maybe in the release week
<fugolini> Is there (#fedora-meeting) someone who is working on Press
<fugolini> ping quaid
<quaid> fugolini: pong
<fugolini> quaid: are you the person in charge of Press Release?
<quaid> shared with Paul, etc., yes
<fugolini> quaid: first of all thank you and sorry for the ping
<fugolini> quaid: Could be possible to say something about release events?
<quaid> stickster is working on the formal, from Red Hat press release
<fugolini> I know a press release must be brief and effective
<fugolini> ah ok
<quaid> I'm working on the talking points for the informal release
<quaid> so, definitely a good one to add to the release announcement
<quaid> I'm unsure about the formal press release, but +1 from me to the
<fugolini> quaid: thank you, a talking point could be great too
<fugolini> quaid: thank you for the time and for the answer
<fugolini> So, anything to say about this topic?
<fugolini> Ok, anything to add for this meeting?
<fugolini> I just finished all the official discussion topics
<fugolini> Any important communication from APAC, LATAM, NA, EMEA
<jmbuser> I'm sorry to say that I can't make GITEX 2008 in Dubai this
month - too much $DAYJOB activity
<fugolini> jmbuser: absolutely no problem.
<fugolini> Everyone here have to do what he/she can do
<fugolini> I hope next year you'll be able to be there
<fugolini> Anything else?
<fugolini> == Meeting Adjourned ==

Fedora always leads and never follows.
I am not sure whether this is the right place to inform this yum problem.
But I want to highlight the issue regarding Fedora yum. Everything was
working fine before i update my system. After updating my system just 10
minutes (Oct 8, 4:14 IST) ago, i am not able to install xmms-mp3 for Fedora.
I have attached a screenshot for the problem. Please rectify this on
It is my pleasure and joy to announce that Festival GNU 08 has come to an
end with excellent results.
This has been a 3 day event with conferences and discussions about free
software with a special approach to our local community - Chihuahua.
My report in now published  and I hope to receive from the community the
more honest and constructive feedback since this is my first event as an
I did mention it in the report but still I'd like to thank to the people who
supported me with advices and resources. Specially Rodrigo, Rahul, Nicu and
Juan Manuel. And also thanks to everyone of you for participating in this
Hoping for the next event to start soon, please receive all my affection and
Viva Fedora !!!
The Open Source Community Malaysia will be hosting FOSS.my 2008 on the 8th
and 9th of November 2008 (more info http://foss.my) to showcase the best of
Open Source in Malaysia and the world. All of you are welcome to attend this
event and hope to see you there!
Fedora Ambassador Malaysia team will be hosting a booth during the event. As
this is our first time doing any kind of event (as we are a quite small team
compared to Ubuntu Malaysia team) we would like some suggestions, Live
Media's (100-200 pcs would do) and any kind of assistance for the event. We
are also unclear regarding the procedure to request any amount of money or
other type of sponsorship / CDs.
Our idea as of now is selling and giving away T-Shirts, Live USB demo /
Revisor and some install fest. Would like more idea from the community
regarding this matter.
Kindly pls assist.
