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.
the largest gathering of open source enthusiasts - FOSDEM 2014 - is
getting nearer and I think it's time to start planning our presence
I've asked the organizers for a stand as we always have. So far I got a
confirmation that they received the request.
I also created a wiki page for FOSDEM 2014:
If you're coming to FOSDEM, please add yourself to the list. The booth
will also need at least 6 people to staff, so if you're willing to help
at the booth, indicate it in the list.

Sorry for the double-post, but I think it's necessary.
Recently, some Working Groups has been created . In the most of
case (except in the Server WG with Truong Anh. Tuan), we don't have
any representant of the ambassador group.
I exaggerate, because some developers are ambassadors (like C.
Wickert, H. Guémar...), but they are in these groups primary for their
skills in programming. I don't say "they are bad ambassadors", but I
think developper task + ambassador reprensentant task are too much for
I think it's a great idea to strengthens the links between ambassadors
and WG. The ambassador is an important link between users and
developpers, on my mind, he must be in these groups.

This mail is a reminder for today's meeting for the French speaking community.
2013-10-29 / 21:00 (hour of Paris)
Ce mail est un rappel pour la réunion de la communauté francophone, qui aura lieu ce mardi (29 octobre) à 21h00 heure de Paris sur IRC (freenode) #fedora-meeting-1 .

As per the UNESCO Interactive Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger,
Angika (anp)  is in the vulnerable state. This is sad but a fact. I
firmly believe on the statement that with a language not only the language
dies; with the language, history, intellectual and cultural diversity and
cultural identity also die. So need is to preserve the huge loss of
precious human languages that are dying one by one.
I want to work for creating Fedora in Angika language with the help of the
community. Hope the community here will support me as well. Angika is
commonly written in the Devanagari script .

That great, for Tuan and Cwickert. But my problem is that neither
email was sent on the ambassadors list. And, as you say, they are
ambassadors "additional". We need real representant of Ambassadors (I
don't say Tuan ans Cwickert are bad ambassadors)

Yes, but we need a mentor for this ambassador, to coordinate their
action in the WG.

It's for the first release. After, for your product, you need
feedback, and other suggestion, to best help them. The user is the
center of all contributors. So, your order become
Development/WGs (Develop) -> Marketing/Docs team (Keep tabs + create
>collateral: flyers etc.) -> Ambassadors + and the community, in general
(Spread the word) -> rest of the world. -> User -> Development/WGs
This last step require ambassadors.

That very good. This is why you need ambassadors, for all steps in the

That the most important thing ! Softwares are make to users. If you
exclude user of your process, it's a big mistake

You forget the post-production. After a software, user have some other
idea of improvement.

For example, I'm a user. I want php on my server, but it isn't in the
"server" group on yum. I can tell developpers to add php in their

If some ambassadors do not their jobs, it's another problem. I speak
about the 'normal' ambassadors.

Yes, you're right, but it's another problem. But, now, freemedia isn't
longer required. Live usb is very useful, on my mind.
