mattdm is not going to go to any sessions at the conference itself, so

mattdm is not attending the conference proper. (It's expensive!) Can
RH get him a free exhibit floor pass?
mattdm can do short presentations. What sort of resources are there
likely to be at the booth?

Standard Ambassadors kit
We need a standard "kit" for all Ambassadors; DVDs, promotional
materials, and schwag.
tchung: As far as I know Greg is putting together a kit for
Ambassadors as much as $100 worth
Unidentified Ambassador: does anybody know where can i get the red or
blue hat in fedora style from? That'd be helpful in promoting Fedora
lxmaier: this is URGENT:
we do not EVER use fedora hats to promote Fedora
Fedora =! fedora hat
not red, not blue, not at all
Inidentified Ambassador: lxmaier i know, but it's related to Fedora's
lxmaier: no discussion of fedora hats will change this
lxmaier: i am sorry, but it is our brand guideline Number One: No fedora hats
tchung: this is a specific request from Red Hat not to use Fedora Hat
in our project
lxmaier: it is a matter of highest priority that all ambassadors be
aware and follow the brand guidelines
