fabian_a so, we skip this if spevack have no objections
spevack normally i would jump in with an update from famsco myself
spevack but i have been traveling the last week and a half (in Raleigh), so I missed the meeting and I'm a little bit behind.
spevack but i know the F10 release parties are being finalized
spevack and budget is also moving along
spevack I do have one request for everyone
spevack If you have had an event this quarter (since September 1) and not gotten me your requests for reimbursement yet, please do so this week. I want to try to get everything up to date with the budget.
spevack thanks!

fabian_a i will keep that in mind

fabian_a anybody?
fabian_a about OpenExpo, please visit for the collection
spevack sure
spevack !
fabian_a spevack,
spevack i was at OpenExpo with Fabian
* spevack looks for his blog post
jenskuehnel !! Sorry I'm late! (JensKuehnel)
spevack It was a good event from the perspective of seeing several community members -- we had some good discussions, and pre-meeting for FAD topics (like LinuxTag)
spevack I think everyone would have liked to see more traffic overall at OpenExpo
spevack yesterday I spoke to 30 university students in The Hague University
spevack and that went really well
spevack i think we will get a few new contributors, I hope.
spevack tomorrow I am going to Athens, and I will be there until Saturday. Athens Digital Week invited me to give a keynote speech, which is on Friday
spevack I will see Dimitris Glezos as well.
spevack and i will see the Parthenon :)

moixs !
fabian_a moixs,
moixs Nothing really fancy, but I gave a Fedora presentation in my university of applied sciences (HEIG-VD, part of the HES-SO)
moixs It was done instead of an Ubuntu one, and around 20 people got to install Fedora
moixs Note: they are still using RedHat 9 in the IT labs

jenskuehnel !
cwickert not much more to say: I don't need a budget, I don't need posters, I have everything I need
fabian_a spevack,

iranzo they actually use it for internal deployment and after recent rains is not available, but plan to have it ready in order to coordinate it with a LUG presentation about F10 features)
iranzo will post on list when everything is ready, both at lug and with mirroring
iranzo eof
fabian_a iranzo: thanks
fabian_a wonderer1,
wonderer1 I have asked Famsco about Budget for the systems2008 in munic (spevack), so I get no last-response (I know it was late and expensive) can I assume, that there will be no budget for this year?
wonderer1 then I can move on with other projects and can better plan it for next year in detail...
wonderer1 maybe max has new infos.
wonderer1 eof
spevack i'm afraid there's just no budget for it, i'm sorry henrik.
wonderer1 Ok, np. I only want to be shure.
wonderer1 maybe next year :)
wonderer1 eof

jenskuehnel EOF
wonderer1 !
fabian_a wonderer1,
spevack gregdek: do you want me to get you a fedora polo shirt?
wonderer1 I saw on the FAD EMEA page some things are not clear. Maybe red can later finish some things in detail, but maybe some folks can complete things. Just remind to look at the page.
wonderer1 eof
gregdek spevack: I'm good, dude. The wife won't let me have any more Fedora shirts.
fabian_a cassmodiah: about moving the meeting time for future meetings from UTC 20:00 to UTC 19:00
cassmodiah !
fabian_a cassmodiah: go ahead
cassmodiah i'm working from 4:00 to 13:00 (UTC +2) i have to stand up at 3:00. Meeting Time 22:00 (UTC +2) is a little problem for me. it would be a little bit better for me if we can move it without problems to 21:00 (UTC +2)... If there is a problem i will learn to life with it :-)
* spevack will come to the meeting at any time
cwickert !
cassmodiah eof
fabian_a the daylight saving will switch soon, but i personally think to go on with 22.00

wonderer1 Only two small things: I saw at these "plates" wich goes to all guys there. Maybe thats an idea for FAD Meetings (not for this year, but next year or so).
* moixs has an exam tomorrow, going to bed
wonderer1 If somebody think that could be a good idea, please tell me and I look who we can buidl such things and what this can/will cost, maybe as "Free as free beer" thingy.
