- Member Services - ThomasChung
- "As of 2006-06-26, we have 92 *approved* members and we have 3 more new members since last report."
- Schwag - MaxSpevack
- "We received a response from Brandfuel our CoolStuff Store vendor,
- basically their response to the international shipping costs was
- 'we know it's high, we feel your pain, but there's nothing we can do'
- so this makes Jack's event kit initiative even more important"
- Project Reports
- FreeMedia Report - ThomasChung
- For Month of June, we fulfilled 97 out of 102 free media requests.
- Many thanks to contributors including RyanCloke and KarlieRobinson.

- OpenVideo Contest Report - ThomasChung
- As you know the contest is officially launched last week.
- The press release was announced on various Linux news sites including
- DistroWatch Weekly, NewsForge, LinuxPR, LXer and of course FedoraNEWS

- So, we're considering extending deadlines another month or so.
