Fedora Project attendees & stand personnel
We should have 6-8 Ambassadors (or other contributors) so that at least three Ambassadors are always present at the stand. Some others will assist with the Distributions Devroom. Sponsored participants are expected to stay at the stand/devroom for at least X hours per day.
- If you're willing to volunteer for a shift at the Fedora stand, please put "stand staff" in the Comments column. Otherwise, put "attendee" there.

Two events will take place on the Friday, 3 February before FOSDEM. Fedora Ambassadors and friends of Fedora are welcome to attend either:
- CentOS Connect: Free to attend. "CentOS Connect is a free mini-conference focusing on CentOS Stream, the CentOS SIGs, and the entire Enterprise Linux ecosystem. CentOS Connect at FOSDEM happens February 3, 2023, the day before FOSDEM."
- CHAOSScon EU: $10 USD ticket. "Learn about open source project health metrics and tools used by open source projects, communities, and engineering teams to track and analyze their community work. This conference will provide a venue for discussing open source project health, CHAOSS updates, use cases, and hands-on workshops for developers, community managers, project managers, and anyone interested in measuring open source project health. We will also share insights from the CHAOSS working groups on Diversity and Inclusion, Evolution, Risk, OSPO Metrics, Common Metrics, and Metric Models."
