> FOSDEM is probably the most developer-oriented Free and Opensource
> conference, taking place in Brussels, Belgium on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8
> February 2009. Apart from having many invited speakers, the conference
> offers developer rooms, stands and lightning talks to projects from the
> Free and Opensource community.
> We hereby welcome proposals from projects to participate in organizing a
> devroom, manning a stand or holding a lightning talk.
> As every year, we have only a limited number of rooms, space for stands
> and lightning talk slots. Since we always receive more requests than we
> can host, a committee within the FOSDEM organizing team will review all
> proposals. Selection will be based on possible impact, our experience of
> previous editions and diversity in the offerings.
> *** Devrooms
> We offer large projects a devroom during the conference. A devroom is a
> room in which projects can organize their own schedule made of
> presentations, brainstorming and hacking sessions. Our goal is to
> stimulate developer collaboration and cross-pollination between
> projects, and as such we strongly favor projects with similar goals and
> domains to host a devroom together.
> See http://fosdem.org/2009/call_for_devrooms_and_stands
> *** Stands
> We offer stands to projects that want to present themselves to the
> visitors in a more personal fashion. Stands can be used to share
> information, demo software, sell merchandizing or give away goodies.
> See http://fosdem.org/2009/call_for_devrooms_and_stands
> *** Lightning talks
> We offer lightning talks to all other projects that want to present
> themselves. A lightning talk is a short talk in which a project can
> introduce itself, talk about recent developments, or share exciting new
> See http://fosdem.org/2009/call_for_lightningtalks
> FOSDEM 2009 will be the 9th edition of the event, which has been
> steadily growing every year in importance and in the number of visitors.
> Our goal is to provide a platform to Free and Opensource projects to
> meet, discuss, present their current and future developments, both to
> their own developer and user community as to other projects that are
> present. Given the large amount of active contributors from many
> different projects present during the conference, it is an exceptionally
> well suited occasion to share goals and ideas with people from other
> communities, which is something we strongly encourage and do our best to
> support. Of course, the event only lives through the projects that take
> part in it, and through the many FOSS contributors who attend. We merely
> do our best to provide the best possible service to the FOSS community
> at large.

Tengo el placer de anunciarles que inauguré un grupo de usuarios de
Fedora en la Pcia de Cordoba en Argentina.
Estará momentaneamente coordinado por mi, pero siempre animado a ser
independiente. Espero y tengo fe
de lograr 5 o 6 embajadores comprometidos durante el proximo año.
En la jornada inicial contamos con la presencia de 6 personas.
El grupo tiene mucha iniciativa y vamos a intentar realizar un
Proyecto Fedora Argentina ejemplar que sirva para otras
comunidades como punto de partida.
Como proyecto piloto estamos documentando todo lo que suceda con el grupo.
Los objetivos y demas detalles los pueden ver en el sitio
Un abrazo y espero poder devolver un poco de todo lo que me dio y
sigue dando esta gran comunidad de Fedora.
Embajador Fedora Argentina

> The Chinese Community has grown much in the last month and i want to ask you Charles, is there a chance that you can help us by building a structured local Community in
I'd like to invite every Chinese ambassador on this list to answer
some question (please follow this email):
1. What do you think about the status of Chinese Fedora community?
2. What is the best "structural" approach we should have, in order to
make the community bigger and stronger?
Please provide as much as detail, so FAmSCo and FP lead can know more
about the situation, then we can get better guidance from them.
I was asking for suggestion about a "suggested structure" on the list,
a lengthy response from Max worth reading.

If you're in EMEA and need some F10 CDs, please send me an email
off-list with your address and quantity.
The production company that shares an office with Red Hat's Munich
office is getting started on a batch of i686 Live CDs, and I need to
tell them how many to make.
A lot of query abut media.
Tentative date for Fedora media reaching you is ~December 6-10.
I shall be to foss.in from tomorrow, and will come back by 29th.
So give me three days to produce and ship the media,
and add to that 3-4 days of shipping time.
