(10:16:23) ChitleshGoorah: ill try to add as much as i can, till now, i have 56 slides (moster slides)
(10:16:27) ChitleshGoorah: monster
(10:17:02) ChitleshGoorah: with DianaFong's pictures (on her blog), i was able to make an interesting story
(10:17:13) ChitleshGoorah: to describe the fedora project
(10:17:22) GeroldKa: ?
(10:17:24) ChitleshGoorah: yet, its not complete
(10:17:39) GeroldKa: which language ChitleshGoorah? French or english?
(10:17:46) ChitleshGoorah: english
(10:17:59) GeroldKa: +2; thanks
(10:18:36) ChitleshGoorah: but my question is how far can i use diana's pictures in terms of "protected" logo (i haven't follow the FAB discussions lately) ?
(10:19:58) mspevack: while it is not the ideal solution (meaning more work is needed with legal)
(10:20:05) mspevack: for now, I would say use them, and attribute them to Diana
(10:20:39) mspevack: Fedora Board needs to do more work with Red Hat legal, but I don't want that to stop you from what is a legitimate use of the picture
  • Fedora Event: Ohio Linux Fest 2006 - ["FedoraEvents/OhioLinuxFest"]
(10:23:25) iWolf: I submitted the sponsorship application for a $75 table last night.
(10:23:33) iWolf: And submitted the materials request through the form.
(10:23:52) iWolf: Working on getting a few locals to help with the booth and how we will set it up.
(10:24:10) iWolf: So still early in the process, but getting the ball rolling.
(10:25:28) tchung: iWolf, how many people are you expecting this year?
(10:25:46) iWolf: They had ~750 last year.  The organizers are planning for ~1200 this year.
(10:26:04) iWolf: It is held in the convention center in Columbus, a pretty nice facility.
(10:26:23) tchung: So, 900 DVDs you've requested should be enough then.
(10:26:49) iWolf: tchung: should be.
