- Ambassadors are encouraged to attend Max Spevack's February class
on Training & Tips for Fedora Ambassadors.
Ambassadors are encouraged to tap into the wealth of community
building knowledge that exists within the Fedora Project to better
understand how successful community building is done.
- Congratulations to our friend Matthew Szulik for his recent honor.
- FAmSCO and other election nomination reminder: Dec. 3, 2008 is the
deadline. Please continue to consider nominating someone you believe
would be good for these positions and consider running yourself.
* Tasks [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/NA/Tasks]
Short discussion of trying to be more diligent in adding tasks to our
list and of monitoring their progress followed by an update on the status
of current listed tasks.
Clint Savage reported an interesting experiment he has been working on
related to mapping out the terrain of the organization of the Fedora
Project using vym. A sneak peak at this has been posted to his blog.
F10 media for NA is in the pipeline to be produced as fast as possible
in conjunction with the release of F10. Should be available in December.
* Open Floor
Q4 budget, swag, and miscellaneous topics briefly discussed.

Hey guys from NA - please take a look at
If there is a remotely close BarCamp that's occurring near you -
please consider making a fedora presentation there. (OK, admittedly,
it might not be a fit for Healthcamp or the like).
I'd like make Fedora the most common sight at a BarCamp in the US.
I've taken the first step (aside from FUDCon and BarCamps at RH) by
listing Charlotte, NC's barcamp.
Thoughts, comments, flames?
