My suggestion is that, it will be more beneficial if we provide these
material in Univerisitie's Libraries, where students can take these
cds and after use/installation they will return back, also i would
like to make a point here that there should be an Ambassador country
wise who lead all the other Ambassador from that country, that will
help us to assess any Ambassador demand and activities in that

@Chitlesh: We can also try te get some Fedora-related books* in the

it is possible to request books at bigger libraries.
If I didn't have a book about Linux when I began with it, I probably

And what does a 'Project Leader' have to do?
