pastebin software called Modern Paste. You can check it out in the
Magazine article or by visiting the pastebin site directly. It also
still works with fpaste in the command line if you use that! (jwf,

* …to discuss the idea of migrating old data from FAmNA Requests Trac
into read-only Pagure for current FAmNA admins (i.e. treasurers,
etc.) and have future requests with private info filed in same FAmNA
repository OR splitting it in two repositories (similar to existing
setup) and more finely limiting who has read access (jwf, 02:25:32)
* AGREED: 5/5 - Will migrate the past FAmNA Requests Trac into a
Pagure with read-only access by the same people who currently have
access (i.e. treasurer and regional logisticians), so requests will
work similarly as they do now (jwf, 02:31:19)

You are kindly invited to the meeting:
APAC Ambassador's bi-weekly meeting on 2017-02-17 from 05:00:00 to 06:00:00 UTC
The meeting will be about:
This is a friendly reminder to APAC Fedora Ambassadors, about our bi-weekly IRC meeting tomorrow.
Please join in:
#fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.net at 05:00 hrs. UTC.
I think that editing a wiki (and not being on any Fedora group or team) is not a valid reason for maintaining country groups. This issue should be addressed to FAmSCo to have a consensus and a replicable solution across all regions
I will refer to this note on the Ambassador wiki page :
"Requires CLA+1 status to complete
To edit the wiki, you now have to have CLA+1 status (which means you belong to another group in FAS than the CLA-related groups). If you are unable to edit the wiki, skip this step and work with your mentor on a temporary workaround. When you are able, you need to have a biography on your user page."
This means that no user should be able to edit a wiki page, unless is extremely necessary and the mentor is aware of that.
So, from my point of view, having the country specific group is useless and represent an backdoor on other stuff as voting system.

So, I'm going to attend the Community Leadership Summit which runs the
weekend before OSCON, and since I'll be there, I figured I might as
well stay. Last year, we decided that a Fedora booth would be
exorbitant, and I think that was a good decision. Adam Miller was there
but more from a RH point of view than Fedora in specfic.
This year, Red Hat has a large booth, and offered me a "pod" within it
(a cabinet and monitor for demos). The whole thing is being designed by
a contracted events company; we won't need the event box, but it would
be nice to have some swag.
I've never been to OSCON; what can those who have tell me about the
audience? The conference program schedule looks pretty technical, with
a lot of programming and sysadmin talks. That seems like a pretty good
match for trying to create converts to Fedora through Workstation,
Atomic, and Server. Do you think we should aim more for an end-user
angle or a contributor one?

Neville, I am sorry but Panamá didn't won the voting because rigobersol and
Juon vote was not counted for Brazil, anyway I don't think repeating a
FUDCon in Panamá is better for the Project instead of having a FUDCon in
Paraguay that never received one,
Can you provide us the Juon fas information?, we request people who
attendees the meeting to identify they selves with .fas FASUSERNAME , also
most people in the meeting have theirs nicks registered in freenode so you
can trust in the identity of the person begin the Nick, with rigobersol
vote there is a draw, anyway we need to wait the council opinion.

Well I think we/you are going in the wrong direction, it seems to me you
are fighting one against the other when you have the same goal at the end.
I saw the bids just a few days ago and am surprised you already voted,
because the bids have both pros and cons.
I would consider instead to extend the deadline (remember we don't have a
budget yet set) and try to find more arguments why the FUDCon should be in
Panama or in Brazil. People should not vote just for winning a bit, they
should vote having enough informations about the bids.
Organizing a FUDCon is not simple and you need a lot of people and a good
strategy to be successful.
So please, before you fight within your region about valid or invalid
votes, think about the final goal and extend your deadline a bit. If you
like I'm sure jkurik can setup a voting session, although the Region's
proposals to the Council never needed that.
My two cents.
