Liberty University

  • Greg met with head of Computer Science department at Liberty University.
  • Looking to completely rebuild their CS curriculum around Open Source.
  • Talked with many CS professors, lectured at a CS class about OSS and ethics in computing.
  • Their professor is going to meet with Will Cohen for next steps about how they can incorporate OSS bits into curriculum.

University Tour (Jack, Max)

  • Max needs to get the infrastructure side up.
  • Albany is likely to be dropped, we need to find some new avenues into Stanford.
  • We need a flyer, and advertising.
  • Getting an update from Thinkgeek, hopefully on March 10.


  • Swag continues to be a horrible bottleneck. Jack needs it for University Tour, but production and distribution is a gigantic time sink and pain in the ass.
  • ACTION: Paul Frields will continue to work with Jeffrey Tadlock on Fedora Store stuff.
  • Greg wants an official way of licensing the Fedora mark.
  • ACTION: Paul Frields to chat with legal about easy licensing of the mark.
  • ACTION: Harish will look into something for APAC.

Fedora TV

  • Plumi is getting a lot of buzz internal to RH University.
  • From Fedora TV perspective, the question is still "who is going to do the work?"
  • Fedora TV will quickly run into space/resource issues to keep it running.
  • one possibility is -- one of the minuses is that there is no "we have our own video site".
  • no RPM -- you can't host it yourself.
  • on the plus side, everything they use is open source.
  • advantage #2 is the size of their server farm.
  • they do ogg video, which was the biggest point of going through all of this in the first place.
  • they have RSS feeds, and they work via Venus (which is the fork of Planet).
