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 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 :)
Red Hat has announced its 2009 RHCE of the Year winners, and if you
look here, you'll see a very recognizable name:
Congratulations to all the winners, including our very own John Rose,
whose participation in Fedora is highlightedin the announcement.
John, thanks to all you continue to do for Fedora, and it's wonderful
to see your many achievements recognized with this award. I look
forward to seeing you in Chicago in a few weeks!

The next OpenExpo  will take place at Winterthur (Switzerland) from
24th till 25th of September 2009.
The advantage of more people around a table is that we will be able to
cover more topics (from packaging over artwork to translation) and a
strong presence there can strength the Fedora Project in Switzerland.
If you will be there and want to give a hand at the booth, please add
yourself to the list of attendees .

Fedora always leads and never follows.
We've got about 2 months left in the Fedora 11 release cycle.
Looking at the EMEA events page, I only see two events between now and
F12's release that would need media:
* Software Freedom Day in Stockholm (Roger Sinel)
* OpenExpo in Winterthur (Fabian Affolter)
A while back, we took an inventory of what was left from the FUDCon
Berlin media, and made sure that the FrOSCon folks had CDs, etc.
I already know that Roger Sinel needs some media in Stockholm, but I'm
not sure what Fabian's situation is.
So, the purpose of this email is to:
(1) Find out if Fabian has the media he needs for OpenExpo.
(2) Find out who has leftover F11 media that they aren't using, and
could ship to Roger in Stockholm.
I'd rather not have to go back to the production company for a small run
of extra F11 media, and instead save our money for F12 media, and
because we're working on getting together a new tshirt order for EMEA as
More details about swag status, production, and distribution to be
expected coming out of FAD EMEA next month.
I conducted one day Free software workshop on 29th August, at KLN madurai
for the pre-final year CSE and IT students (50+). The session started with
an introduction to Free software and philosophy.Then i explained various
GNU/Linux commands and applications. Mailing list etiquettes were taught
using shakthi's presentation (Thanks shakthi) . Introduced IRC and students
were taught about getting help from various support channels.
In afternoon session, it was all about Nmap , Ncat and Ettercap (FOSS
Network Security tools) , students were taught about security risks of
transmitting plain text passwords on the wire, ARP cache poisoning and DNS
spoofing were demonstrated and explained using ettercap.
Fedora 11 was installed in 30+ Lab machines for hands on. The response from
the students was excellent. Hospitality was good.
Fedora 11 DVDs were distributed to all the participants.
I thank HOD of CSE department,KLN and Final year student Dhivakaran for
organizing this event successfully.
