PyCon: In Addison, Texas
- nman64: Oh, a quick note about PyCon: In Addison, Texas, it is a relatively small event, and does have a registration fee.
- The total cost for me to get there and participate makes it, IMHO, not worth bothering with. (Addison is in the Dallas area, BTW.)

Linuxdays in Austria
- solartrooper: Austria has a bit another concept of "Linuxdays"
- we have the countrywide linuxweeks, which always begin about May and go until June.
- date of the first dissertation isn't fixed right now, but will come soon
- As soon as solartrooper has details, he'll add them to the FedoraEvents page.
- ChitleshGoorah: I really need support for the FedoraLibrary project.
- I tried to launch discussions in the list. But nothing. I feel no one is interested to work it out
- tchung thought the owner of Fedora Education Project is interested
- William: ChitleshGoorah, i'm new here but I could help you in France ...
- ChitleshGoorah has scheduled a meeting with the directory of his Uni to launch it here in Strasbourg
- tchung: ChitleshGoorah, if you send me some introduction of your project, I'll post in my next FWN.
- We are happy to report our Steering Committe is making some progress in this issue
- Alex will give us update in the next meeting
Funding for attendance
- Alex will report at the next meeting
- ChitleshGoorah: Does the Steering Commitee (famsco) discuss among themselves or on the list?
- tchung: Yes, FAMSCO has a list called firstname.lastname@example.org.
- It is private list. If you have any request or suggestion to FAMSCO, please email me and I'll forward to them. :)
- nman64: Or, post to the Ambassador list, as all SC members watch it.
- tchung won't include ["Distribution/FreeMedia"] in the Schedule until he has a more sold idea and more participants
- EVERYBODY: Note that we cannot perform any fundraising activities at this time and so we cannot sell anything at events!
Fedora Account System
- Getting your own Fedora Project Email address is important for All Fedora Ambassadors
- solartrooper: do I have to use GPG for getting an account?
- nman64: Yes, you'll have to have a GPG key to get the account set up.
Presentations for Ambassadors
- We need to provide Ambassadors with some slide decks for various presentations.
- We should probably aggregate the ones we already have and make them available.
- We should also figure out our policy for licensing these presentations!
- tchung thought Rahul was working on *Official* or *Standard* slides for us
- We'll need contributors to complete the CLA (as all Ambassadors should), and will probably be licensing them using the OPL without stipulations.
Standard Ambassadors kit
- this is either already done or Greg is still working it :)
- The content of the kits is just about finalized, but production and distribution will still take time.
- Greg will be back to give us update on Standard Ambassadors kit in the next meeting
- At present, it looks unlikely that shirts will be part of the standard kit, but will be available for < $10 USD to Ambassadors.
- The *current* plan is to include reasonable quantities of install DVDs.
- We're having to watch production costs, so that really isn't feasible right now.
