Fedora Libraries

- this is a project of ubuntu that Im going to copy :)
- the idea is to give libraries dvds and the latter will lend them like books
- afterwards they can give a try to Fedora and copy the dvd etc
- but to be honest this will be mostly done by lugs
- ambassadors or members of the lugs can give a small intro about fedora

- we have not found maintainer for LiveCD project yet.
- we posted a call for maintainer for LiveCD project twice in FWN

LinuxTag and FUDCon

- Is there a FUDCon in LinuxTag (Wiesbaden,Germany) ?
- I haven't done anything till now

- please get in touch with LinuxTag and reserve a booth for fedora
- we will try to have a FUDCon there too
- FUDCon is good, but being at the event with a booth in the .ORG area is essential

- we are allowed to have 3-4 FUDCons in a year
- we are planning to have it in LinuxAsia, LinuxTag and LinuxWorld (Boston)
