There will be a two days event for the next Fedora release in Paris!
There will be talks and workshops the 4th of June, meeting people, and
of course Fedora install.
The following day will be like a FAD, where contributors would work
together on different subjects. This day will help people to become
contributors as they will be able to integrate a team directly, see
how we contribute in real time.
We would probably work on packaging, translating and ticket review in
our community website (and why not on the FP ones). It depends only of
who will be present.
Feel free to join us during the 4th and 5th of June, in Paris !
If you are a NA Ambassador that is planning on attending Red Hat Summit, please
join the summit-planning list (https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/summit-planning)
and sign up on the Summit wiki page if you intend to spend any time at the booth.
If you are local to the Boston area and are not paying to attend the Red Hat
Summit, we do have a limited number of passes available. These passes are STRICTLY
limited to BOOTH ACCESS ONLY - they do not include access to talks, evening events,
etc. Please drop a line on the summit-planning mailing list if you need a volunteer
at booth pass, and sign up on the wiki page as well.
We did the test last release, but things went not as planned. We tried
to enforce a Schedule for Ambassador Specific activities in sync with
the release of Fedora 14, but most of the tasks were not pursued in
time. It is not time to point fingers so lets look for Fedora 15
Schedule of Ambassadors!
This time FAmSCo (and personally I , as chair) takes full
responsibility of making sure the schedule will be followed as
planned. After the election of the current FAmSCo (November - December
2010) we did a review  of the draft schedule from J.Poelstra (our
previous schedule wrangler) and with help of Robyn Bergeron (our
beloved current schedule wrangler) we updated it to meet Ambassador
Also we have new naming of the tasks to help us understand the owner
of task more easily (it was a problem on the old one).
Who will enforce it?
FAmSCo will make sure the owners of each task have whatever they need
to make the action.
How will we report back and review schedule?
The Schedule will be part of our weekly FAmSCo calls so feel free to
drop by to raise an issue. If this is not possible raise the issue on
the mailing list of Ambassadors.
Is the schedule flexible?
We are human beings and sometimes we cannot meet some deadlines :)
This is totally understandable and FAmSCo will be there to help out,
and in extreme cases reform schedule to meet some updated needs.
Is this the final form of the schedule?
Although we tried to deliver a schedule that took into consideration
all of our needs, we understand that the schedule will need some
reform and fine tuning for our next release (e.g. Fedora 16). After
the Fedora 15 release is over we will gather all available feedback
and discuss it to make the appropriate adaptions.
Where is the Schedule anyway?
The schedule can be found here  along with the rest of the Fedora
Is this schedule describing all Ambassadors Tasks?
Of course not! This schedule is only for release-specific Ambassador
tasks (i.e. tasks like Release Parties, media production etc). Feel
free to host events and make action out of the schedule as always! But
if your actions are release-specific please help us meet the
Feel free to comment (as always) and step up on specific regional
tasks. I will post and nudge on the mailing list towards the adherence
to the schedule :)
