Last meeting there was no quorum and not able to make any decision in
that meeting. Do you think good to have meeting next week i.e. 31st Oct??
Though i will be away for G11N FAD. But good if you all gather and work
more on APAC Budgeting FAD @ singapore and other tickets.
Hi everyone. Looks like I'm going to LISA, the Large Installation
System Administration conference. It's in Washington, DC from November
8-13 2015 (with an expo floor open Wednesday and Thursday). Red Hat is
funding a booth for sponsored community projects, and I'll be there to
talk with sysadmins about Fedora. Any ambassadors interested in joining
In fact, it'd be super-awesome to have someone with solid ambassador
experience and strong organizational skills, because I have neither of

Thanks for your e-mail, and glad to hear that you are willing to plan
a Fedora event in Montreal!
It sounds like a nice idea, and Montreal indeed has these nice
advantages, but surprisingly the Fedora community there is quite small
Unfortunately, I no longer live in Montreal since I graduated last
year, I am now located in Switzerland again.
I therefore apologize for not having updated my Fedora wiki page (will
do). The last year has been pretty busy, and I haven't had much time
to contribute to Fedora lately, although I still am a happy user.
I hope you can find enough support locally with the Linux Meetup group
to set up an event!
PS: Ping Joerg, nice to hear from you again!

This mail is a reminder for today's meeting for the French speaking community.
2015-10-26 / 20:30 (hour of Paris)
Ce mail est un rappel pour la réunion de la communauté francophone, qui aura lieu ce lundi (26 octobre) à 20h30 heure de Paris sur IRC (freenode) #fedora-meeting-1 .
L'ordre du jour est disponible depuis cette page :
N'hésitez pas à le modifier pour rajouter des sujets qui vous semblent intéressants.
Merci de répondre à ce message en cas d'indisponibilité.
I suggest that there should be at least a session on trying to
identify and list potential Fedora contributors along with their skill
set. Also perhaps there can be some concrete planning about how to go
ahead in bringing out the best in them. I have felt that it becomes
really a difficulty for contributors to identify proper areas and move
ahead. This probably can not be done in a mailing list thread.
Perhaps, also not that well in any IRC discussion. This perhaps can be
done best by mentors and ambassadors by meeting physically and
exchanging views among themselves.
I am not sure whether FAD is the right place for such a kind of
discussion. Maybe a FUDCon is better. This exercise once or twice a
year might just increase quality contribution to Fedora project.
