hereby I claim that the pages with Online-Vendors like
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ThomasChung/OnlineVendors will be closed
- there is no verify, that the vendor is still alive
- delivers what he promises
- has a TLA in place
- the link works
- there is something "helpful" for Fedora in general
Please have a look to your own country and decide by yourself.
So I do!
I checked the GERMAN links:
- the first german offers Fedora 9 with a sleeve of Fedora Core 6
- the second link is broken
- Link 3 is a vendor for everything
- Link 4 a debian specialist ..
do we need such pages at all?
We had a great event. We enjoyed a lot all through 5 days of the exhibition.
We arranged FAD in that Expo and almost all Fedora Ambassador from
Bangladesh met for the first time in a place.
The first day expo had less visitors, it might happened due the extra
security for the Finance minister who inaugurated the expo. Almost all
visitor of that day were other booths/stalls attendees. Our Fedora DVD
(locally produced) was very catchy and everybody was asking price of the
medium and were excited to get one free. We distributed only DVD and kept
the T-Shirts for the other crowded day. Earlier this month we received a
OLPC XO laptop from George Hunt, which we kept in our booth for display, it
fetched lot of kids to our booth.
The second day plenty of Linux users flocked in front of our booth, informed
via newspaper about our Fedora Both. They were telling about there problems
and troubles, few brought their laptops and told they couldn't manage to
connect mobile broadband, we tried to make them happy. In this day we
distributed DVD and Fedora Stickers along with our Fedora handbills. We
setup a PC to burn DVD for those who brought blank media.
3rd day was public holiday. The expo had the record number of visitors in
it's history and we were exhausted. Fedora Ambassador Rejaul
Islam<http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Rejaul>joined me and shared
half of the pain :) He proved to be very good at
preaching, and later I found he is a man of Marketing. This day we finished
almost half of our DVD and other swags. We were happy to introduce Fedora to
lot's of school boys, Rejaul informed them about the Fedora Scholarship and
inspired to apply.
4th Day was public holiday too, but schools were open. Crowd was limited but
everyone was stopping by our booth to get a free DVD, the word must have
spread via various Bangladeshi mailing lists. we had adopt *
prize-for-the-quiz* before giving a free DVD. We just inquired if they use
any Linux distro or if they have heard about Fedora, even asked what are the
4 Fs and so on. But, the most important part of this day was the first ever
real FAD for Bangladesh. We had already announced that long ago through
mailing lists, and FB event page was there. Almost all Fedora Ambassador of
Bangladesh showed up along with Fedora Users. Imtiaz
Rahi<http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Imtiaz>told us about
fedoraproject and it's various sub projects and inspired us to
join other sub projects as well. I told them about l10n subproject and found
that everyone wanted to do some localization. We met Rana Khan, who planned
a Fedora 12 Release party at his University, he was asked to make an entry
in the event page. I decided to give 50 DVD for his party, all other
ambassador agreed to attend his event. We agreed to arrange series of events
through out 2010 and thought. Imtiaz Rahi also requested to step ahead for
the Free Media project and asked to mail him if anyone is interested.
Mizan<http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Kingheart>agreed to that from
his city Chittagong. At the end we distributed DVD,
T-Shirts, Stickers, clicked group photos and had food. Here is a photo
5th and last day was a less happening cause it is the starting day of the
week in our country, though we finished all our DVD (except 50 for the
release party). A group from workshop named WALCOM(!) held in an university
came to our booth and discussed technical things.
Later I became ill, standing throughout the 5 days of the expo and hence
reporting lately. But I was excited to meet all the Ambassador of my country
for the first time, this is the time I had the one of the F (friends); I
want to do this again and again.

TalkingPoints are key features of the new release that we want to point out they are meant to answer the question "so what cool stuff is in the latest release of Fedora?" So we are inviting *everyone* active/inactive to participate in writing the talking points of "Fedora 13"
Feel free to add-in features that you think should be a talking point and the reasons( if you see a feature and want it to be a talking point, put down the reasons why ) You can follow the Talking point SOP https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Talking_Points_SOP if you want to know how we are making talking points for Fedora 13.
Aamir A Bhutto
This Sunday (14/2) I gave a talk/workshop about the Fedora project as an
operating system and a community of contributors.
In the first hour I described the Fedora as a leading community to the FOSS
world and generally how many cool stuff are happening here. Later on I
showed them how easy and meanfull it is to be a Fedora project contributors
and I gave some examples about the Special Interest Groups.
After that I presented them the new cool futures of the Fedora 12 release
and how to create a Fedora 12 Live USB Stick.
The last one and a half hour the talk turned into a workshop where everybody
lived the Fedora 12 experience on their desktops. They had the opportunity
to learn how to install Fedora 12 from a livecd to the hard drive, to
explore the system and generally learn something new, simple and different
from their orange funky operating system they use to work. The audience were
actually 25 Ubuntu users and after the talk I received many positive
comments about the Fedora Project.
During the talk there were 2 GREAT (female) volunteers who were interpreting
everything into Greek Sign Language. This is a new perspective which must be
adopted by everyone. The whole presentation was recorded (+the girls) and it
will be published soon.
I really want to thank GreekLUG who invited me and in that point I want
to mention that the guys are making a really good work here in Thessaloniki.
In the future we are planning at least 2 more talks, one of them regarding
OLPC and Sugar.
You can find my presentation’s slides here. Some photos are from Fosdem
and shotted by Luca Foppiano.
P.S.: I own you a Fosdem recap too. I’ll write/publish it soon
The complete log for those of that enjoy spending the extra bits:

Branded USB Key Price Quote (Meeting topic: FAmNA 20100216)
(09:34:36 PM) inode0: ok, just for the record
(09:34:58 PM) inode0: I requested a quote from Red Hat's source of USB
sticks used at the past couple of summits
(09:35:20 PM) jds2001: those sucked last year, btw.
(09:35:34 PM) jds2001: or rather the year before
(09:35:38 PM) inode0: The quote I got for Fedora branded 2GB swivel
sticks came in around $13.50 - $15.00
(09:35:42 PM) jds2001: the last summit i was it :)
(09:36:03 PM) inode0: which is a bit pricy for us I think - but there it is
(09:36:11 PM) makfinsky: inode0: Wow, that seems pricey.
(09:36:21 PM) ke4qqq: hmmmm think we can get it in before budget cutoff?
(09:36:22 PM) inode0: the branding on them is nice
(09:36:43 PM) inode0: can anyone reach spevack?
(09:36:45 PM) ***ke4qqq notes there's 16,000 in ambassador budget that
will disappear in just a few days
(09:36:46 PM) jds2001: yeah, when you charge $900 for a conference, $15
isnt that much - but for swag, it is :(
(09:36:48 PM) ke4qqq: inode0: no
(09:36:50 PM) ke4qqq: inode0: not really
(09:37:09 PM) inode0: well, let me say something about these
(09:37:09 PM) VileGent: ke4qqq, i think we can do alot cheaper to be
(09:37:24 PM) inode0: I wasn't thinking about getting them to drop on a
table as swag
(09:37:30 PM) ke4qqq: but I am sure quaid or mchua, or gdk could hook us
up with a PO
(09:37:55 PM) inode0: quaid mentioned giving them to people who asked
good questions at a talk and that got me thinking
(09:38:09 PM) quaid: "Ever filed a bug report?"
(09:38:11 PM) dramsey: +1 great thoughts and ideas.
(09:38:13 PM) inode0: that it would be nice to just have some around for
special uses like that
(09:38:22 PM) ke4qqq: I agree
(09:38:23 PM) warren left the room (quit: Quit: Leaving).
(09:38:32 PM) makfinsky: inode0: +1
(09:38:41 PM) ***ke4qqq liked the $nextrelease's idea as well
(09:39:16 PM) inode0: ke4qqq: well, I have a quote in hand, just need
(09:39:39 PM) ke4qqq: quaid: ??
(09:40:20 PM) quaid: wow, that's a toughie potentially
(09:40:39 PM) quaid: I'm fairly sure we need spevack for this, and he is
deeply out of pocket
(09:40:49 PM) inode0: at a minimum it would run around $2500 I think
(09:40:53 PM) quaid: however, if you bounce me the quote I can get it in
to his queue, top-center
(09:40:59 PM) ke4qqq: yeah I know about that - but can gdk help us?
(09:41:02 PM) ke4qqq: or sometihng
(09:41:09 PM) quaid: well, I'll do a full-team alert, yes
(09:41:09 PM) ke4qqq: if not we'll just miss it
(09:41:11 PM) inode0: quaid: I'll forward it to you
(09:41:15 PM) quaid: and greg is last seen in RDU
(09:41:46 PM) ke4qqq: yeah i figure greg is at least in proximity to

(f) Fedora on the front and the logo on the back
(09:50:57 PM) inode0: ke4qqq: I think Brian is waiting on Max to say do it
