FISL (Greg)

  • Greg will be there. He has been in touch with Rodrigo Padula and David Barzilay and Greg will bring them money.
  • Is there an engineer at Red Hat they would like to see there?
  • Have localized spins (Brazilian Portugese) been created? If not, we'll create them.

Florida Linux Show (Jack)

  • Jack needs to find out from Kyle what the Fedora area will actually be and look like.
  • event report on Fedora planet. (Greg)

  • Greg met with Jennifer Venable (Online Services business/operations person). No business decision owner to force the remaining issues through legal.
  • Option 1: continue to try to push through the negotiated deal. Unlikely without taking on ownership, which carries with it a lot of headaches.
  • Option 2: click-through agreement that anyone can sign. Could be used to prove the larger case. is an exception from this standard agreement.
  • Can we even own this? If we cannot, is it worth the pain to us to get it done?
  • Jennifer is looking at the options, and will give us more information. Seems like it is a Fedora-only proposal at this point.
  • Once we have more information and can make a clear recommendation to the Board, we will.
