Todo items


  • 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 theree?


  • 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"?

Event box

  • 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.


[[1]] still mentions the NPO and needs update: See NA page for example.


  • Buy 100 Raspberry Pies plus blue cases with Fedora logo. Have a raffle and give away 10 on each major event.
  • Demo laptops for EMEA. AFAIK NA got some used Thinkpads from RH. Ask inode0 about it.


  • Events with talks should not be called FAD, but how do we call them? Ask for ideas on ambassadors and marketing list.
