Please join us for our weekly FAmNA meeting this Tuesday at 9:00pm
Eastern in #fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.net.
I'd like to remind everyone that it is important for us to get some work
accomplished at these meetings and staying on the topic is important
to that end. All comments are welcome from ambassadors during the
meetings but please wait until the Open Floor to add any subject matter
not included in the meeting agenda via a ticket.
Feel free to add to the agenda. The easy way to add an agenda item is
described at the bottom of this announcement. Especially if you have an
event coming up that needs some attention.
== Meeting Agenda ==
=== Announcements ===
Time for brief announcements.
=== Orientation Topics ===
After giving this some thought I have concluded there is way too much
material for one meeting so we'll add one or two topics each week
until we have everything covered. Please add topics or suggest future
topics for us to cover.
=== Tickets ===
Tickets scheduled for discussion at this meeting can be found at
Please read through each ticket in advance so you can be prepared to
discuss them at the meeting.
=== Open Floor ===
Unscheduled topics can be raised during the open floor if time
permits. Discussion of any topic will generally be more productive if
participants know about the topics in advance and have some time to
think about them, so please add your topics to the meeting agenda in
the ticket system when possible.
If you would like to add a topic for discussion at our meetings please
open a ticket at
and set its milestone to meeting.

In May the F18, FAmSCo term has started which I was a member. Now it
is almost 4 months has gone and around 2 months to go for the release
There was two goals at the beginning, one was to improve the SWAG
production and distribution with in the APAC region and the next was
to facilitate and represent fellow FAms in much efficient way. (donno
what you think )
I do believe that I will providing better representation and
facilitating for the FAms from APAC.
However I am still working on the first goal which is hard to achieve,
but I ll be doing my best.
The plan I have came with so far is as follows.
Currently there are 18 countries with in the APAC region.
(excluding following countries since they are almost dealing with EMEA
Cyprus, Jordan, Saudi Arabia)
With in the region there are diversity of the tax and shipping
overheads therefore “Distributing through a central point” is not the
best strategy for APAC. However my plan is to produce SWAGs in bulk
and distribute them in a central point which is the FUDCon in the
region holding yearly. Since most of the FAms from most of the
countries in the region, are participating I think that would be
feasible. So once a year SWAGs (such as stickers, buttons, straps ….)
will be produced and distributed via the FUDCon.
In APAC the scenario is totally different than NA or EMEA since the
countries are largely seperated geographically. Therefore local
production would be the best possible alternative. However FUDCon is
used as the central point as all the FAms are gathering yearly.
It is better to produce media themselves locally. I think that would
be the best possible way to address the tax and shipping costs. In
such case it is possible to open a ticket on the fedora-apac trac
and move for the production. Since the revised “Reimbursement
Guideline” is in effective there would not be much difficulties.
Comments and suggestions are welcome.
Planning for the next SWAG production will start soon.
