Bochecha 14:51, 5 October 2008 (UTC) : Im putting here a summary of what we currently discussed by mail. We'll have to clean it up and sort it in the correct place (is this page for public display of the program or for us to organize the IP ?)

Alternative repositories bochecha 20:33, 26 October 2008 (UTC): Not an apology for livna and why it is so cool, more an explanation on why Fedora can't include those packages, legal implications, etc... And obviously, how to use what a user need from those repositories

RPMs creation bochecha (?) Workshop or conference ?
Using Fedora Installing Fedora alone ? bochecha (?)
Administrating Fedora Installing Fedora alone ?
Using Fedora ?

Mutt EmmanuelSeyman The greatest MTA ever
LaTeX: Office in a different way Installing Fedora alone ? bochecha (?) ** Showing the world why LaTeX is much better than other Office solutions

USB keys

  • Remember to tell people to bring their own key so we can install Fedora on it
  • Buy keys for distributing to people who don't have
    • Carlos has a contact in his company marketing
    • 2GB ?
  • Nicolas has a preview Kickstart
  • Design for customization should not be F10-specific

Communicating on the event

  • Blogs / planets
    • coordinate everyone so that articles are publicated not in the same time
  • News paper / sites. Emphasys should be set on press that is not specialized in FOSS
  • Distributing flyers
    • universities / schools
