What do you mean with generic?
In this case it means a party with no specific theme other than the release.

Well, swag always used to be made of:
- baseball hats;
- winter hats;
- Fedora polo shirt;
- Fedora pins;
- Fedora mugs;
- Fedora t-shirts;
- Fedora stickers in at least 3 different types
We have been holding off on printing new swag pending the logo change
as we thought it would be done sooner. Now that it isn't we can print
more items, but we need to understand how these items help us so we
print the right stuff, not just stuff.

Did you file a ticket in the Mindshare repo to request any swag?
Please don't let this be a blocker for you to organize a release party.
:-) There is definitely swag and budget available to help you organize a
release party for F29.
The problem is that this is going to be a trend. Even the past year, when I ordered swags
for Linux day events in all Italy, we got an insufficient amount of material. But this
year the low amount of material reached a ridiculous level.
I reviewed the ticket and the event report and don't see where was it
mentioned that there wasn't enough swag or that there were problems.
I am sorry to hear this feedback so long after the event. We based
the shipment on the number of estimated attendees and standard swag
distribution patterns in the absence of other information.
An ongoing and open question about swag is how we can use it to
further our goals and not just as a way of giving away items with no
known return. The general thinking I've heard from others is that
things like stickers are great give-aways and basically are branding.
Other items, when used with a plan, can be good for converting users
and contributors. If we are wanting to do swag for our existing
contributors, we should probably do special items for them as many of
them have our stickers and other items.
As an example, there is an open request for a few non-stickers to use
with a quiz at a release party. We are trying to figure out how to
fulfill that request now.
