I'm planning that I create new t-shirts, but I need some inspiration
from our slogan. I just wondering, what is the official slogan of our
F14 Laughlin? On the marketing page says just TBA, what means for me
that isn't chosen, or isn't updated from long time? Missed out
something? Maybe knows somebody something about that?

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have
previously served on the Fedora Board or FAmSCo or FESCo for their
hard work and dedication to Fedora. I'd also like to thank all the

Hi Bert (and other FOSDEM organizers),
I'm looking at the FOSDEM organization page for 2011, and it looks like
things are coming together.
I'm curious to know if there's any estimate of budget needed for FOSDEM.
Are there any travel subsidies necessary? Are the swag costs? Do we
need to donate any money to FOSDEM itself?
The reason why I ask is because I want to make sure that we set that
money aside, and that we also have processes in place to get it spent,
On November 20, a group of users and ambassadors from the Venezuelan Fedora
Community gather to celebrate the new release of Fedora, share experiences
The meeting began with a talk that I gave to make the group know the history
of the Fedora community in Venezuela and the actual services (web,
infrastructure) that we provided to the community, then, continued with a
talk by Maria Leandro (aka Tatica) where she explain the support services
and the help that Fedora can provide to local communities and how to
request such assistance, then a teammate José Tomás García (aka Dogbert)
show us in an workshop how to make a Fedora installation from PXE 
(Preboot Execution Environment) and finally Guillermo Gomez (aka Gomix)
announced the project RPMDEV  with the intention of seeking more Latin
American developers and packers and also showed us the release notes of
Our lunch was pizza, and we give media to all the ambassadors that came, so
they can distribute it in the rest of the year. Also share some some pop
material and T-shirts to each of the attendees.
The intent of this meeting was to reactivate the Fedora community in
Venezuela that's been inactive a long time; also to personally meet some new
and old members which whom we had the opportunity to make plans together for
2011 over the Fedora dissemination in Venezuela, this was not really
achieving due that not all the ambassadors had the oportunity to come.
We wanted that all the ambassadors came and share with us and also work
together, this was not acomplished. However, to be this the first Fedora
formal event in a long time and had the oportunity to focus only in our
community, I think that was a real success, which I hope will be higher for
the next meeting. Those ambassadors who where timidly spreading Fedora had
previously worked in an isolated status, now have the confidence to call
more friends and acquaintances for some upcoming opportunities, and this
will make participation much higher.
As noticed, for us this was a little more than a celebration launch party,
so we called the meeting FudVen, anyone wanting to know more about how we
organized the event can check our wiki  (in Spanish) The call was made
through the mailing list Fedora Venezuela and who wants to see some
pictures, some climbed some of our Flickr account .
A total of 500 media where distributed (not-burned dvd), 20 t-shirts from
fedora, 200 laptop stickers, 50 vinyl stickers, 20 laptop bubble Fedora
stickers, 7 pizzas, 5 sodas and some brochures of fedora, the big Most paid
by the Fedora Project and some things paid for by us and left over from
Serve to give special thanks to Ambassador Carlos Marcano  for his effort
as he traveled all night by bus to join us.
Finally, on behalf of the entire Fedora community Venezuela, Congratulations
to all those who made Fedora 14.
Apologies for the delay, this should have made it's way to the list earlier.
We're currently in the midst of planning for these events and
would love to hear suggestions, comments, feedback from the general
Fedora Ambassador population. Much of the work is being done on
#fedora-meeting during APAC meets and we'd love to hear about funding.
Much of the information pertaining to the said events are already on
the wiki (or so we hope :).
today I have booked again (as always) my room in Renaissance Hotel in
Hope to c u all there again
All the best
