We've been silent for a while, but we were not sleeping.
We started a lobbying strategy around fedora in the universities by creating
local "Fedora Clubs".
We already have 2 clubs:
- one in ISET Charguia: http://www.isetch.rnu.tn - public university
- one in ESPRIT: www.esprit.ens.tn - private university
ISET CH already had their first activities which are:
- a private mirror: create by my self
- a release party of F12, (will have it's event page), where we gave 4

Dear fellow Ambassadors and Greek Fedorians!
Yesterday we held in Athens our Fedora 12 Release Party with much success!
Many people showed up to learn about our Constantine and Fedora Project in
Anastasis and me gave a presentation on Fedora Project and Fedora 12 (can be
found here ) and afterwards we did some hands-on testing on network
sharing, virtualization enhancements, Moblin platform and other hints on
We even had a Fedora-Birthday-Cake :) Many swag were given out and as always
Live-USB sticks were made!
Check out the photo album from the event here  (from Thalia)
Many thanks to my fellow organizers (Anastasis, Thalia and Pantelis) and to
everyone else who attended!

Yesterday we had the Fedora 12 Release Party in Caracas. We had near 30
people attending to the hacklab that we made with a small design and RPM
Also, several ambassadors came and help with the attendees. Also, Guillermo
Gomex (gomix) made the official presentation of RPMDEV; which is a RPM
packagers incubator. We give several Live CD with stickers and tattoos and
after the release, we all have a great lunch.
I can say that we have several goals. First, we were expecting near 15
people, but we have almost 30 person. Also some ambassadors who had a time
inactive came to join us again, and we plan to have every 2 month a fedora
hacklab, to teach people to be productive using fedora and encourage them to
join the team helping fedora, not only using it. Also, all pc's were running
a live cd, because I couldn't get permission to install them.
I want to give a speciall thanks to Edwind Contreras (Richzendy) who gave an
excelent RPM workshop, to Guillermo Gómez (gomix) who bring awesome ideas,
to Wilmer Jaramillo (k0k) who is "coming to town" again and he can encourage
new users to be developers like he is, to Ricardo Fernandez (KOSHrf) who
cheer up us all at every moment.
We also have the active participation of a Loco team member (from ubuntu -
Santiago Zarate) and Ricardo Hernandez, who is an awesome Arch user, and we
all be able to share knowledge and make a brainstorm about other distros.
I want to thank all who gave me the support and encourage me to do this
Release Party. My contribution was only sho the attendees how to join our
community, how to ask for support, join and handle mail list and a *morning*
overview of what Fedora 12 can offer them to their daily routine.
Here you can find some photos and some videos, thank you all for read this

Awesome report. I really, really, really enjoyed the conference... although I have to admit I was at work and wasn't able to concentrate exclusively on it the whole day so I missed a lot of content... and the opportunity to ask questions and chat after them. Luckily though I saw someone mention that the presentations would be available online for the next 3 months... and verified the "replay" feature is there already.
I did get to attend a couple presentations and do some question asking and chatting... although there were usually three going at the same time so there was no way to see them all live anyway.
I attended the Technical Merits of KVM talk by Andrew Cathrow and was actually able to extend an interview I had done with him and Jim Brennan by chatting with them in the Networking Cafe. (See: Interview: Red Hat on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization - http://www.montanalinux.org/interview-red-hat-rhev.html).
While I did notice some pretty minor technical glitches it does show the promise of such a "virtual" type event. I wonder how much it cost Red Hat and if it is something Red Hat (and/or others) would consider sponsoring for Fedora... so Fedora could have a virtual online conference.
MY MAIN POINT IN SENDING THIS EMAIL IS... how many enjoyed it and would like to use it for Fedora?
My only regret though is that the event was outsourced to virtualevents365.com (this was my first use of their service) and that it, I assume, is a closed service/product... and based strongly on Flash.. If there were unresolved concerns about using virtualevents365.com for a Fedora virtual conference, maybe Fedora could setup up a DimDim server (http://www.dimdim.com/) as an almost suitable substitute that is much more open/free?!?
I too am signed up as a Fedora Ambassador but I've been busy with so many other Linux-related projects (OpenVZ and the LUGs in Montana) that I haven't been very active so far as the Fedora online services are concerned. Oh, and I have been responding to several Fedora related articles on LWN as Max mentioned. :)

This mail is a reminder for today´s meeting for French ambassadors and
_every_ interested people.

Ce mail est un rappel pour la réunion des ambassadeurs francophones,
qui aura lieu ce dimanche (6 dec.) à 20h30 heure de Paris sur
IRC (freenode) #fedora-meeting .
L'ordre du jour est disponible depuis cette page :

Merci de répondre à ce message en cas d'indisponibilité.
since August I'm trying to organize a meeting for the Italian fedora
ambassador and supporters during the Cerea fair (an electronic/radio
amateur/computer fair in Italy - near Verona - with about 10000
participants) on January 16th and 17th 2010.
The expo area is divided into two zones, the expo and the conference
(with sits for 250 people). The conference wasn't used so far, in fact
the idea was that we start using it for the first time during the fair,
to do some speech and talks about fedora and the free software stuffs.
Unfortunately - I can sadly say thanks to the low interest to some
people to move and to contribute - we miss this opportunity (I can't
oblige people to come, and I can understand that sometimes traveling
within Italy might be a PITA), but we have now the opportunity to have
our own booth during the whole fair.
I put all the information we need in this page:
What I'm asking is a small budget for the accomodation and to refund
some travellers that come from far away:
The accomodation is really cheap: around 20€ per person, per night and
the travel is just to refund some people (most of us come from the same
city so we will share the car).
Probably we'll need gadget as well, but I'm still checking to see if we
have something left.
I am kinda new here and yesterday I was asking Rodrigo Padula for some
document/url explaining how the project works, specific areas, people
involved, contacts etc so that I could have an idea how things works
and where I could be useful. He told all areas are well documented at
the wike, but he said he couldn't point a single location (or a toc)
for all this information.
Since I am new here and I want to understand how things work I propose
we could organize a simple guide for new ambassadors - if it's not
available yet. ;)
