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.
as far as you all remember, I promised to support the organizer from
FUDCon in Switzerland.
Right now, I can announce, that I was able to promise you -as attendee-
a special topic.
For those who stay until monday I can organise a sightseeing at CERN 
the European Organisation for Nuclear Research. A friend of mine which
is a Doctor in Physics works at the ATLAS Project  and will do a
guided tour for us. We can also have a lok (unfortunatly not a touch) in
their computing cluster. Mostly the CERN runs which runs Scintific
If you're interested let me know!
Hey, all --
As many of you may or may not know, I am currently the Fedora Weekly News
correspondent for the Ambassadors section.
Unfortunately, I'm finding that my schedule is filling up with a few
life-related things -- none of them bad, thankfully, but all of them a tad
time-consuming -- so I'm going to have to turn over my FWN Ambassador beat
duties to someone else.
If anyone is interested in taking the reins of the FWN Ambassadors beat,
contact me off list and I can show you how it's done. It's fairly simple --
taking most of the reports from events, etc., and other Ambassador related
news which appears on this list (mostly) and putting it on a wiki that is
imported by some magical process (that doesn't really concern you, unless
you're really interested) into each week's Fedora Weekly News.
[Just for the record, I am only seeking a replacement for my duties as they
pertain to FWN. Surrendering my FWN tasks allows me the flexibility to
continue performing my other Fedora Project duties unchanged; my apologies
to FWN for drawing the "short stick," so to speak, in this situation.]
Kevin et al:
OK, maybe my questions really are, "Can I do these things? How would
this work? Anyone want to help with it?"
During open floor hours at OSCON (when conf attendees can go out to
walk around), schedule a series of short informative talks at the
Following a regular rhythm (:00, :20, :40?) people give short (4 to
7 minute) talks on topics related to the Fedora Project community.
This is followed by Q&A and discussion until the next time period.
We can get this on the various RSS and mblog feeds (#oscon, etc.),
clear signs, and other things that occur as we are there.
We can recruit talkers from the Teaching Open Source community.
With some publicity and clear signs, this will draw people to the
booth throughout that time. If a talk and follow-up is short, that's
OK, people will mingle, and in a few minutes another starts. The
frequency can be dialed up or down depending on how many talkers we
This started in my mind because I want myself or Mel to give a short
info talk on POSSE at least once every hour. There will be other
people at OSCON involved in the Teaching Open Source community, and I
would like to see some of them come give talks, too.
In fact, we may be able to fill out a good portion of our slots with
people talking about open source in education. I think that the
mission and close relationship of the Teaching Open Source community
and education in general are close enough to Fedora Project that I
feel safe in making this request and idea to the Fedora Ambassadors
running and attending this event.

You are always free to contact Mediabit and clarify things if you wish to.
I think it would be better if we collaborate on this via the open community.
We had a an agreement in the last meeting that I wil send out the
urgent shipments, which I did 2 hours ago.
Also we agreed to shift the plan on the distribution to the next
meeting or mailing list.
In that meeting the meeting attendees were ok with this way, because
the urgency is taken care of.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen / with kind regards,

Warum mache ich überhaupt dieses ganze OpenSource Zeugs?

Hello, fellow Ambassadors,
The other day, I tried contacting Red Hat México; since I am a mexican
I'd like to ask your opinion on what to expect from Red Hat locally
and what kind of a relationship should we encourage.
They seemed very surprised by my "first contact" email...
It's hard to be free... but I love to struggle. Love isn't asked for;
it's just given. Respect isn't asked for; it's earned!
