  • the prize money is NOT 5K
  • 5 K is all we got to run the contest
  • a larger chunk of if will be spent on small giveaways

  • USD 500 to make the contest be easier to conduct legally across the world

  • 2.3 - Presentations for Ambassadors
  • RahulSundaram not present (at the moment)
  • 2.4 - FedoraLibraries
  • ChitleshGoorah not present
  • 3.1 - Fedora Community Free Media Project
  • ThomasChung reports
  • well, I've finially given away 50 DVDs so far.
  • The request form is still closed since I have no more DVDs left.
  • I might burn 50 more next week.
  • CyberSpy: I have 400 burnt, I need some sort of label image so I can print on them (like the old blue FC2 isos), and 100 more will be burnt today
  • tchung: Once again, this is volunteer program so we don't have to put official label image
  • JoseTarazona: I think we must use the same labels on CDs or DVDs, even if this is a volunteer program. Fedora must show a common and strong image to the public.
  • cds: The topic about vendors/sponsoredMedia is being discussed off list, and we'll get back to interested parties once something is worked out.
  • GeroldKa: http://booth.zapto.org/~foxkm/FC5/ these are not official labels, correct???!
  • CyberSpy: Those are great, I'll use them if it's okay
  • lxmaier: i hope we will be able to publish the ones we'll use for official DVDs--once we've got them
  • 3.2 - Fedora Word Of Mouth Project
  • ClairShaw reports
  • In order to help Ambassadors concentrate on events, I've started up WOM.
  • It's to help ambassadors (and others) get support for general publicing of fedora, telling individuals about it, etc.
  • atm I'm just after as many people interested in helping/getting help as possible, and filling in common questions.
  • JoseTarazona: It will be possible to create a spanish language version of the project?
  • cds: I've love that :)
  • lxmaier: then i guess cds and JoseTarazona should work together on this
  • Misc
  • tchung: just want to let you know, we won't have a meeting next week since most of famsco members will be at the Boston. :)
  • mether: nothing to visit there (FC5 tour). it can be removed from schedule
