Before you post anything else, or we talk about your suggestions, I
would like to give you a work. Let's see if you can complete that.
If you google with "mailing list etiquettes", you will find that every
mailing list has it's own guidelines for mailing lists. (Like not to
reply digests when replying.) Unfortunately, we have none on our wiki.
So, the work is:
Can you please create a wiki page which will describe the mailing
list etiquettes for Fedora? We want to make this a reference for
future. This may not much different from the LUG guidelines. But
please don't copy blindly.
PS: I was going to give you a link to Shakthi's pdf, but considering
it will lessen the amount of research done by you, I shall refrain
from that. ;)
For those of you who are doing events, it's very likely that you'll be
getting questions about Fedora 11. This page is an excellent place to
get a high-quality overview of some of the main things in the release.
Please give it a read, and familiarize yourselves with its contents.
Well Ive havent got any Fedora related emails for quite some time now, I
think it is because I have been inactive for the last 2 months, tough I
wasnt (Switched my major and recently got home from religious/humanitarian
missions). So I kindly request to be "activated again" as now I will be back
on track helping the project.
Also next week im giving a class on guess what??
Well the IT deparment wants me to give a class about how to install linux
and teach my fellow students how to use any distribution I like, so I chose
Fedora, the presentation is due on next saturday, any advice on what I
should focus the class on??
P.D: Its good to be back working with such a great community
once again I'm here talking about Release Events.
- Why are they so important?
Simply, they introduce, in a human-friendly way, Fedora to the world.
They give the possibility to have a first look of what was done in the
previous 6 months and have people ready to give community the first
support for installation and explanation of all/most of the features.
- What can we do?
Like the past releases, we have to create something really special to
cheer the new release: a worldwide initiative, marked for its
distinctive signs, that mix both the knowledge and party sides.
- Can I hold a Release Event? What I have to do?
Sure. Just add your event in
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents. According to the release
schedule, we encourage to have such events in the first 2/3 weeks
after the release (May 26th, to stay sure, add a week).
During the next weeks I'll let you know about the other aspects
connected with this initiative (swags, meetings etc.).
My regards and the best wishes

There are a few suggestions:
1. Contacting national dailies like Times of India, Telegraph, The
Hindu, etc. & giving out press releases & information on GNU/Linux.
2.Mass marketing the regional language support for small businesses &
home use like Microsoft does. Giving out advertisements is a must.
3.Having tutorial DVD distributions for budding coders & bug trackers
on the lines of the Sun starter packs.
I'm not very sure to which list I must post this to but I do
hope some one in this list can help me. I was testing fedora 11 beta and
they have disabled the tap option in the touchpad of my laptop. This was
a major concern in fedora 9 and many of the users were annoyed and some
even turned away from fedora. In 10 it was enabled by default, but 11 it
is disabled. The wiki says if the touchpad has physical buttons the
tapping is disabled. Dont you think it should be up to the user to
decide this. Im not sure where to voice this opinion.

I am copying John Poelstra as this is perhaps something that should be
added to the schedule.
We are about 6 weeks away from F11 release. From what I recall from
F10, artwork delay was a big factor in the delay of media and we had
set some timelines on when we needed to get the artwork taken care of,
to the printer, etc.
So lets start that discussion here.
Clint: Since you are also the liaison with Art, is the media and
sleeve artwork ready. If not what's the date it will be? Is there
anything the rest of us can do to push all of this along?
Sorry for tying up the global list with a regional discussion.
