I've been a Fedora user since 2005, when it was known as core. I have been
mentioning that I would like to organize a Fedora event in the Montreal
Given Nov 7th is the F23 release date, we could arrange a release party with
Martial Bigras (who olds a monthly meeting at ETS).
I was thinking that at the release party, I could present Fedora23 or a
Gnome Remix of Fedora23, as a LibreOffice iimpress file (a power point ) and
hand out some DVDs.
Joerg Simon suggested I contact one of the Canadian Ambassadors (you). I
could also put my name down as an ambassador.
I graduated nearly 50 years ago, but I still do design and coding. (Its a
way to keep the brain rust away). I've never missed a Fedora version since
year 2005. I do have a passion for Fedora, and one or two Remixes.
I am in Montreal. I actually think that Montreal Quebec would be a great
site for a next annual Fedora major event. My justification is -- great
schools, multi-lingualism, low dollar, low cost hotels/ dorms dorms/ great
affordable restaurants / No crime/ and more advantages. If a Fedora meetup
were to be held in winter, there is skiing close by. In summer, Montreal
and Quebec City would be a wonderful place to take a tourist vacation.
The Ambassador posting on Fedora site indicated that you were the only
Montrealer around. JP, who I had met in the past, is living in Quebec City.
Please respond with North America Fedora Linux LUG (my email filter to

Mr. Leslie Satenstein
Montréal Québec, Canada
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!
