Thank you for this info, I'm planning several short presentations about
Fedora Project at the University of Galati, Romania, and I did not know from
where / how to get Fedora 11 CDs / DVDs.
The F12 talking points have been released, and are ready for use (and
improvement!) Many thanks to Steven Moix, Paul Frields, and Jon Roberts
for their hard work.
Talking points (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Talking_points) are key
features of the new release that we want to point out. There are
different types of talking points for different types of people: users,
developers, sysadmins, and more. They are meant to answer the question
"so what cool stuff is in the latest release of Fedora?"
Reading the talking points should get someone who's *not* necessarily
already a member of the Fedora community excited. (This is something
that I think the talking points could still use some help with; which
ones are unclear? Which ones don't get you as excited yet?) Please take
a look at the talking points and think about how you'd like to use them
for F12 outreach - and if you can think of a better way of phrasing
something, or think something should be improved, please let us know (or
use the wiki and just make the change yourself).
Ambassadors in particular: how can we turn these talking points into
marketing materials that will help you spread the word?
The 16th IEEE International Conference on Electronics, Circuits, and
Systems, ICECS 2009 , will be held in Tunisia on the 13th to 16th
The wiki page  says we have 7 ambassadors in Tunisia. Can anyone of
you represent FEL at that conference ?
- writing and sending a paper (will be done by me)
- prepare local ambassadors with the talking points (will be done by me)
- attend the conference and distribute your Fedora business cards (eat
good food too :) )
- if our paper is selected by the chair, the ambassador will give a
brief introduction about Fedora&FEL
You may find other publications, screenshots and presentations on .
I believe that FEL should be sending papers to technical conferences
around the world. These papers will describe our opensource EDA
solutions and Fedora's key features eventually.
If you are aware of such conferences in your locality, please let me know :)
Some people in UFL are going to start a LUG and they want some help as
they are new to this thing. Is there anyone nearby who can help?

If anyone in NA could use a bit more F11 pressed media please get your
requests in to me ASAP so we can distribute as much of our stock
before the release of F12 as possible. I don't have a huge amount left
but can send some more out to anyone who needs it.
Here is a quick little wrap up of Fedora's and KDE's representation at the
Arizona Business and Liberty Experience in Phoenix, Arizona last Saturday.
Many thanks to Clint Savage and FAmNA for the Fedora table's supplies (which
were a huge success, by the by) and also many thanks to Aaron Siego for flying
out from the icy north to be with us in the uncomfortably warm fall and to
wipe the floor with me WRT playing pool ;-)
