Requested US $ 215.62 for media production. [Famsco Ticket 141] A quotation for a Fedora table cloth is on the way.



Neville A. Cross did a presentation about Fedora and moved on about showing how a simple application like shotwell can be used for anyone. The rest of the day he was on the booth. Joel Dávila was on install area. Yader Velazquez was taking control of the workshops given on the lab. We got help from Julio Gomez who was on the booth all time, specially useful at the time Neville was giving a presentation.

There were distributed about 100 stickers, 10 Fedora Cheat Cubes, about 20 case badge stickers (shinny), about 100 leaflets with information about fedora. There were people still wanting more media, some of them got copies on the iso on their USB, some got LiveUSB created, some brought their own media and got it burned.

Sadly all media were bad. Due an error of communication the iso was copied to the media instead of being extracted on the media. There was a mail from Neville A. Cross explaining the error and offering replacement. All people who got media was registered, but some emails were wrong or impossible to read. Big emphasis that this was a error in local production and was nothing to do with Fedora OS or Fedora Project. In any case this will not be claimed for reimbursement.

We have our first try of the fedora table cloth.
