Fedora Ambassador Day EMEA 2008

The goal of FAD EMEA 2008 is to establish Fedora's EMEA leadership team for 2009 and to plan the upcoming year's events and priorities.

Location and Date

  • October or November 2008
    • I think I prefer November. --Max
      • +1 for November
    • Me too, mid of november would be fine. --GerolKa
    • I was thinking about early December, but mid/end of November is fine too --red
  • Probably somewhere near an airport with good public transportation
    • How do people feel about Amsterdam? --Max
      • +1 for Amserdam or wherever you can use a Low Cost air carrier. Basel is in the middle of Europe but it's quite difficult (and expensive) to get there...
    • I'd actually prefer Basel (Switzerland) for it's in the center of Europe (where most attendees will come from). It'd be a central place for Germany, France and Italy - the 3 countries where we have more active ambassadors than anywhere else in EMEA. --red
    • That's fine with me. We'll just need Gerold's help in getting the place to stay. --Max


  • TBD

Business Agenda

  • Status update for FOSDEM 2009.
  • Planning the Fedora EMEA priorities for March 2009 - February 2010, to coincide with Red Hat's budget year.
    • Two major events
      • FUDCon EMEA 2009
      • One other (maybe LinuxTag)
    • Various mid-level events
    • Make it easy for ambassadors to organize small events in their countries
  • What do we want to focus on in addition to events?
  • What do we need from Red Hat?
  • What are the biggest problems Fedora faces in EMEA?
  • How are our smaller communities doing?

Fun Agenda

  • Depending on the location.
    • If we are in Amsterdam, maybe a football game or the Heineken Brewery. --Max
    • Or for Basel: Augusta Raurica (old Roman city) or Feldschloesschen Brewery, which is inside a very nice castle --red


  • MaxSpevack has indicated that he can provide at least 500 EUR budget for this event. As we get closer, the number may go up. Budget will be used for travel subsidies, lodging subsidies, food, and some fun event.
