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.
>From the survey thread on the amba list it appears that people
simply use what they know and don't even look for open alternatives.
Is there a wiki page showing all collaborative tools set up for contributors?
I've heard about an etherpad instance last year… Still up?
What about setting a dudle instance (doodle like) or similar?
UNG Docs ("UNG is Not Google") looks great for online office tools,
never tried. But could be used instead of google doc.
What about survey? I've seen some the past year, I am sure that we
have something around.
Simply give inputs I will then fill a wiki page if needed.
As a Fedora Project Contributor, I feel really proud to tell people
that we are all using only free and open source software (please don't
check my smtp server…). There are many great free alternatives, we
should highlight them (or set up them using our infra if there is no
online service yet).
I am glad to see efforts to do classroom sessions.
Given the 24 time zones we have on the planet, perhaps I can suggest that
sessions like these be repeated once to handle timezones. My suggestion
would be for the principal presenter to present his/her stuff during
waking hours and schedule another to handle those whose waking hours are
I think it is wonderful that people step up and run classrooms, and as
recipients of these sharing, we should be appreciative of the effort and
let the presenter do it in their time zones.
I've just created a survey to collect information from ambassadors
regarding RH certifications and Fedora Training.
This is a small survey and please spend few minutes to complete it. :)
The idea behind this survey is to collect information from ambassadors
about their desire to learn Fedora and get certified from RH.
After the collection of data, we can ask for the support from FAmSCo and
come up with a better solution.
dramsey, our fellow APAC ambassador, was the person who was originally
brought this idea to the floor. Credits goes to him. ;)

I personally think we should more focus on fedora. Albeit if anyone wants to learn or do certification he/she should go for it but let's not mix it up all together this is no sister company or related to career enhancement path. I'm not trying to de motivate anyone my point is just keep it simple.
P.s: I personally always encourage people to do different certification to get more chances in career advancement and above all to get more knowledge.

I lied, this is just the default sentence in my template. What I wanted
"I was afraid not many people would show up because of the holidays, but
we had quite some attendees and a very productive meeting, that took one
and a half hour."
Please forgive my clumsy cheating attempt. ;)
