- Have we been at Fosscomm Greece in 2012?
- Froscon 2012 is not in the events list
- Did FSF-OSSC take place? Were we there? It's not in the list of events
- FSCons 2012 is not in events list. Who was there?
- Events with talks should not be called FAD, but how do we call them? Ask for ideas on ambassadors and marketing list.
We currently calculate a budget of 11.700 EUR for all events
Questions and Todo items
- Premier events budget process (see Budget for this FAD and FAmSCo ticket 296
- FADs should no longer be premier events because the premier events process is broken.
- Ticket should state who approved what when! (link ot meeting minutes)
- Fedora does not feed you -> exception for contributors dinners etc.
- What about cheeting? You can ask 5 different people for USD 499 each and bypass the UDS 2000 limit.
- Even peer approvals need a ticket. Person who approves an expense needs to state that in the ticket (and not the requester).
- Complete budget vs. several tickets: Event owner will request budget for his event. Attendees who need sponsorship need to file their requests in different tickets, because they are approved/denied on an individual base. Individual tickets should block the main event ticket.
- Who is managing the "discretionary spending"?
Swag shipping and management
- Everything should happen in trac, which needs to be improved (halfway done, Christoph, Jiri)
- updating inventory does not work. People receive stuff but don't add it.
- TODO: mail people about left over swag and tell them to reply by mail (Jiri)
Eventbox (content, missing)
- We think that an event box does not make much sense for EMEA, instead:
- give away swag will be sent out from Brno by Jiri
- big/expensive/important goods like banners, laptops etc. will be stored at certain key people who attend a lot of events.
- Big things like banners should remain in one country and not be shipped across borders because this is where it gets expensive.
- TODO: Produce 10 new banners. GeroldKa to get a quote.
- TODO: 10 new table cloth
Swag production & shipping
- Bottle openers
- Jiri and Christoph to get quotes for bottle openers. Go for the cheaper ones.
- 1000 Buttons (Jiri)
- New batch of metal pins, but bigger
- Baloons (Gerold, Jiri)
- Sticky notes, white logo and wordmark (Christoph, Jiri)
- More cheatcubes: updated for systemd, distro-neutral for lvm, selinux, bash, vim (Gerold, Zoltan)
- Soccer/Baseball style shirt (Christoph, Gerold)
- Exclusive polos or dress shirt for contributors. Something classic (Santaftex, Gerolds)
- Jiri ordered Polos for devconf, they were ~ 15 EUR each
- A blue shirt (Jens, Jiri)
- Bicycle cloth, even if it is just a small batch and we have to pay ourselves (Robert)
- Soft shell (Christoph, Gerold)
- Towels, white with stiched logo (Jens, Gerold)
- metal Keychain, just like the FEFE ones (Christoph)
- Pens (Christoph, Jiri)
- Pen set (ball pen and pencil), slightly more exclusive, probably around 5-6 EUR (Gerold)
- all purpose Flyers
[] still mentions the NPO and needs update: See NA page for example.

- OSAS page needs love.

- actively recruit people from the local communities (fedoraforum.de, #fedora-de) and social networks
- country-wide event: Organize anGet all ambassadors of a country together.
- official vs. unofficial communities?
- TODO: Discounts for RH training
