Other Things we need
- place to sleep
- place for work
We have four days scheduled for working.
Day 1 (Saturday, March 13)
Strategy and Research. Owner is robyn bergeron. This day will be used for:
- Discussing market research data results from upcoming Fedora users survey
- Looking at short-term and long-term strategy, life cycle
- Revisiting the Marketing Plan
- Reviewing F12 process, successes etc.
Part of the morning will also likely be used for introductions, figuring out internet access for people, generally getting settled, etc.
Day 2 (Sunday, March 14)
Brand book. We can go two ways on this - if we have enough people we'll split into two teams and pursue both.
Day 3 (Monday, March 15)
Interviews and filming.
Day 4 (Tuesday, March 16)
The list below is just the collection of items we will discuss about and does not say anything about the time or order they're discussed about.
- F12 - what did we do there
- F13 - how far we are
- Start of release cycle
- Start of release cycle
- upcoming releases
- build up an press and picture archive
- everything else
=> goal: have a big picture of a possible marketing plan we could use during Fedora cycles.
- what is open source marketing?
- events we should go to (as Ambassadors as well)?
- marketing conferences
- RH Summit (Boston)
- How about something like a conference-Package, T-Shirt or basecap or some other kind of "reminder" of that event? ... maybe there are some RH Backpacks (max carring around some nice ones ;-) ) or other bags laying around in some office with some cool nice tiny black notebooks and some pens with laserpointer or so in it <- makes a nice package ?!
- make some pictures for the picturebook (photoshooting -> theme)
depends on where we are (e.g. springbreak, bikeweek, etc.)
- how to write press releases
- overview over PR in Opensource (talk from Henrik Heigl ).
- Fedora Handbook - Rahul Sundaram
- trifold brochure

|Mel Chua||PIT (coming from another conference)||$200||leave PIT 5pm March 12, return PIT anytime||pending approval|

|Robyn Bergeron||PHX||$350||Can leave anytime Friday (it's about an 8hr trip with layover, so the earlier, the better); I can return late Tuesday or early wednesday, 5-6pm are about the latest flights I can catch out of RDU to get back home without a strange-city 8-hour layover.||pending aproval|
|Henrik Heigl||Germany, Saarbrücken (SCN)||EUR 700,- ~ $ 1000,-||What's the earliest you can leave and the latest you can return? - Not shure what here is ment, but I will try to arrive one day before beginning and next day after ending||pending approval|
