Last weekend, the very first Fedora Ambassadors Day (FAD) was held at the Swiss-German border.
GeroldKassube, ChitleshGoorah, FabianAffolter, FlorianBrand, FrancescoUgolini, JensKuehnel and JoergSimon covered the four important and active Countries and regions in EMEA: France, Italy, Germany and Switzerland at the first FAD.
These Fedora Ambassadors have gone though their scheduled agenda, discussed various subjects, agreed/disagreed on many numerous topics, proposed new ideas and planned to organise and participate in as much Linux events as possible.
On the agenda, there were:
- Status of local contributions to the Fedora Project.
- Status of newly recruited Fedora Ambassadors
- Difficulties encountered
- Some notes from FAMSCo members and Fedora Board members.
- Next Events and FUDCon in Europe
Among the decisions taken there are:
- To help new ambassadors with a mentee program
- To enhance FAMSco voting system
- To assign via vote one Fedora Ambassador as FAMSCo member who will represent his/her region or continent.
- Strong presence on FOSDEM,Chemnitz and FROSCON (Hattrick)
- To provide appropriate support to local community websites in order to spread the message the Fedora way
All these items will be announced soon on the Fedora Ambassadors mailing list.
