Welcome to the Fedora Ambassadors of North America (FAmNA) page.

  • Four Foundations; Freedom, Friends, Features and First.
    • Please read about how these foundations integrate into our culture, community and values.
  • Fedora Talking Points
    • Very useful discussion points when folks ask what is in Fedora.

[edit] FAmNA events

The Fedora Events page has a full listing of events where all regions list their upcoming events. This goes for FAmNA members too. If you are an ambassador and would like to hold an event, big or small, it should go on the Events page. The benefit of this is that we can track how many events each region has and how to plan for the same quarters in upcoming years.

Add an Event

[edit] Get SWAG for Your Event

FAmNA will happily provide approved ambassadors with resources to share Fedora with people at events or just in their area. FAmNA provides several items that can be handed out, these include:

  • Live/Install Media
  • T-shirts
  • Stickers, Buttons, Tattoos, etc.

To get an Ambassador Kit for ad hoc events or other SWAG to give away at events, visit the FAmNA Requests Trac instance. You must have a Fedora Account to create a request.

[edit] FAmNA Meetings

North American ambassadors meet on irc.freenode.net, #fedora-meeting, on each Tuesday at 9pm Eastern US time. See upcoming meetings and past meeting minutes.

[edit] Tasks

During meetings, tasks are assigned to individuals willing to complete work. Usually, this is simple stuff like announcing an event on mailing lists, blogging about something cool, etc. However, we do have more lengthy tasks as well. Tasks are now tracked on the FAmNA Trac.
