Apr 26 15:12:32 tchung Now, let's go to next Agenda. Apr 26 15:12:43 tchung http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Meetings/2007-04-26 Apr 26 15:12:49 tchung Go over Material Request Policy Apr 26 15:12:58 tchung Please open http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/GetStuff Apr 26 15:13:53 tchung For those new to Ambassadors Project and Material Request policy, I would like go over quick. Apr 26 15:14:27 tchung If you're requesting DVDs for your event in US, please make sure to submit it at least *one* week before the event date. Apr 26 15:15:06 tchung If you're requesting DVDs for your event in *outside* of US, please make sure to submit it at least *two* weeks before the event.
Apr 26 15:17:32 tchung We had a case when someone requested the media in less then a week for the event Apr 26 15:18:19 tchung and I had to ship the package in Express mail which is more expensive than Priority Mail or Air Mail. Apr 26 15:18:45 tchung So please submit your request at least two weeks before the event.
Apr 26 15:19:52 MrTom I think that you've got to be strict. If the submission has been asked less than one week, then no dvd. it is a respect topic. Apr 26 15:20:20 tchung +1 MrTom Apr 26 15:20:28 gotencool +1 Apr 26 15:20:47 saadsaidi +1 Apr 26 15:20:50 FrancescoUgolini +1 Apr 26 15:20:55 HolgerDoerner +1 Apr 26 15:20:58 jmbuser +1 Apr 26 15:20:59 fabian_a +1 Apr 26 15:21:08 sereinity +1 Apr 26 15:21:17 gomix +1
Apr 26 15:21:18 tchung One more to the Material Request Policy. Apr 26 15:22:13 tchung We're trying to limit the number DVDs you can request for an event. Apr 26 15:22:48 tchung I understand some events need a lot more than others. Sometimes over 200 or 300. Apr 26 15:23:52 tchung As a *general* rule, we're asking to request up-to 100 DVDs and if you need more than 100, you need to use your local vendors. Apr 26 15:25:00 tchung This is also good way to communicate and work with local vendors to promote the event and project.
Apr 26 15:27:59 tchung Let's go to the last Agenda Apr 26 15:28:07 tchung http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Meetings/2007-04-26 Apr 26 15:28:15 tchung Remind FreeMedia Requests in April Queue Apr 26 15:29:23 tchung As most of you know, we've been distributing Fedora DVDs for free to those who couldn't download or afford to get one from local vendors. Apr 26 15:30:08 tchung As a Fedora Ambassador, I believe it's our responsibility to burn a copy and give them a gift of Fedora. Apr 26 15:30:49 tchung So I ask you again to join the program (Free Media Program) and accept at least one or two media requests. Apr 26 15:31:12 tchung For more informaton, visit http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Distribution/FreeMedia/Information or Apr 26 15:31:22 tchung just let me know if you're interested in.
Apr 26 15:32:07 fabian_a i have placed a request for a new wiki banner for the ambassador section at artwork Apr 26 15:32:45 fabian_a my intention is to have a "corporate identity" through all parts of the fedora wiki before release of f7. infrastructure has placed a request too. Apr 26 15:33:18 fabian_a and after that...artwork, infrastructure, docs and ambassadors will look the same with a stylish banner
