FYI, for the Ohio Linux Fest folks. We requested power and contributed
a bit extra for the Fedora table, but the event organizers should
triple-check to make sure we have it. Red Hat's also sponsoring, but I
don't know what sort of booth or table the corporate folks will have.
But there's a nice opportunity to try to have everyone go out to dinner,
and share some perspectives from the community <-> corporate
bi-directionally. Someone can send me the receipt if one of my fellow
Red Hatter's doesn't pick it up (which they should). :)

Texas is a huge state I believe all venues will show
decent attendance. Sounds like an Event full weekend.
Good luck in Waco
I will be enjoying the geeknic and the bbq in Arlington
(not certain on the Fedora stuffs yet... in the mail)
Are there any ambassadors in the Dallas vicinity who would be
interested in participating in this event?
Please cc Steve on replies since he isn't a list member.

Subject: Need fedora swag for Software Freedom Day in Dallas
I'm part of the group organizing the Software Freedom Day event in
Dallas, TX. We'd like to get Fedora CDs and any other swag that's
available to hand out at our event. If a Fedora Ambassador is available
locally who can participate in some way that would be great too.
We have a Wiki page set up with more information on our local SFD event:
Any CD or other materials can be sent via postal mail to this address:

I was thinking in lanching Arabic website as most of users from the
whole middle east area speaks arabic well but not many of them speak
I will provide hosting and also I'll buy the domain (Which I have
problems in including "fedora" in it's name :(( )
All what I really need is contributions and ideas
There's number of ideas of the sofware
The content I think we will target will be application reviews,
problem solutions, posts about arabic related stuff in fedora
Any suggestion is welcomed very much if you speak Arabic or not :)

I like the idea of Fedora in stores, and it wouldnt be too hard in terms of demand. However i must agree with Joerg on dummy tools and such for as it stands now there is still to much tweaking to be done to make it completely dummy proof.
