We should probably start working on this soon to make sure it's in
good shape for the final release?
I think the work already done on the beta release notes is a great
foundation, it probably just needs tidying up a bit and updating here
Is this going in the SSS?
I am working on a set of interviews with different upstream projects
that have some involvement with Fedora. I have a rough draft of the
interview I am doing with the Abiword team at
Editorial help, additional questions, suggestions and feedback is welcome.
as suggested in the last comment I'm mailing here.
So what do you believe is the best way to present the features of
Fedora Desktop? What are they? How would you present them? Would you
make a video or audio showing or explaining the use of some features
and applications, or would you just put some files that are from that
application so that users see for them self what can be done with
different applications? Something completely different?
Please share your ideas...

So there have been a few items added concerning the Single Source Summary.
Maybe they were actually there last week and I missed them, since they
were at the bottom.
If we are actually intending to focus on these items this week, then they
will take up most of the agenda. Or are these items being covered by the
docs group? I just want to be absolutely clear
Paul, Max, since we are the 3 owners of these items, should we be getting
together to discuss them? Or was this stuff that you and Paul worked on

The Board is holding its monthly public meeting on Tuesday, 06 May
2008, at 1800 UTC on IRC Freenode. The public is invited to do the
* Join #fedora-board-meeting to see the Board's conversation. This
channel is read-only for non-Board members.
* Join #fedora-board-public to discuss topics and post questions. This
channel is read/write for everyone.
The moderator will direct questions from the #fedora-board-public
channel to the Board members at #fedora-board-meeting. This should
limit confusion and make sure our logs are useful to everyone.
Rather than set an agenda for the meeting, we would like to start with
the topic of the upcoming Fedora 9 release. In particular, how has this
release differed -- improved or regressed -- from previous releases?
The meeting will be open, however, to any questions from the community.
The Board has set aside the first meeting of each month as a public
"town hall" style meeting. We are hoping to do an audio-based meeting
at some point in the near future when resources allow. The
Infrastructure team continues to make solid progress on this front. We
look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

Hey there guys, what is the update or ideas that people have for
marketing the latest fedora version 9.
by the looks of the screenshots it is going to be big but how big and
how can we get it out there to the public?
I am open to ideas
Ambassador Of Fedora Project
for cd's and dvds
<fugolini> Please roll call
<fugolini> ok, we can start
<fugolini> today agenda is:
<fugolini> 1. Ambassadors Budget
<fugolini> 2. Wiki status
<fugolini> 3. Local groups status
<fugolini> First topic
<fugolini> i think we can start with the rlease
<fugolini> events discussion
<fugolini> if you take a look at the event page
<fugolini> at least 8 events (please count it on your own)
<fugolini> actually in Italy there are 2 more events that are in the
<fugolini> *in a pending status
<fugolini> just wait april 30th
<fugolini> Max, moreover said that the deadline is May 1st
<fugolini> due to the beginning of the next fiscal quarter
* knurd is now known as knurd_afk
<fugolini> I invite who has a planned event to report it in the wiki
<spevack> MaxSpevack is here
<fugolini> and if he need help ask in the list
<fugolini> We have planned a cost of 1000$
<fugolini> ok, i'll stop now
<iWolf> in regards to the release events, I would like to begin
contacting the event owner for the release event to offer the $100USD
that Max is ready to send them.
<fugolini> ah, just a mistake, it's not the end of the quarter
<fugolini> iWolf: yes, the main problem is that there are other events
in pending status
<fugolini> i think we could start asking for the payment method
<spevack> fugolini: the Release Events and next quarter's budget are
two different things
<iWolf> i thought we were just taking the first 10?
<fugolini> in fact
<fugolini> i notice this
<fugolini> i've done a mistake and i say this
* stickster is now known as stickster_afk
* stickster_afk is now known as stickster
<fugolini> iWolf: we have 2 slots free
<spevack> i see 8 release events
<spevack> on the FedoraEvents page
<spevack> The North American ones will be very easy to fund
<spevack> we can probably use PayPal for everyone
<spevack> or just send a check
<iWolf> right, but I don't want to penalize the ones ready for money
while we wait for the other 2
<fugolini> so, just wait two days, we are trying to organize two more events
<spevack> The one in Greece will also be easy
<spevack> because I can just pay Dimitris back when I see him at LinuxTag
<spevack> my concern is getting money for the Italy release party and
for the Bangladesh release party. $100 USD is a small amount, the fees
to transfer that via a bank wire are almost as much as the money
<iWolf> spevack: so do you want to handle sending the money? and skip
the contact the event owner step to see things are still a go for
<spevack> iWolf: well, I'm thinking that I can email the owners of the
various events, ask them if it's still a go, and start by asking for a
<spevack> iWolf: we'll see how far that gets us
<spevack> iWolf: because we can handle that this week.
<spevack> what do you think?
<iWolf> spevack: sounds good, i wanted to clarify if you needed me to
do that or if you were going to.
<fugolini> spevack: i just reaplied to your mail
<iWolf> spevack: sounds great to me.
<spevack> iWolf: i can do it, and i'll cc you just so there's one
other person in the loop
<fugolini> have you seen it?
<spevack> fugolini: looking now
<iWolf> spevack: thanks!
<fugolini> spevack: can you cc the famsco
<fugolini> just because i think it has to be clear
<spevack> fugolini: sure
* kital (n=Joerg_Si@fedora/kital) has joined #fedora-meeting
<MrTom> we are in france doing our best to have a date before the 1st
of May, but i'm not sure this is likely to happen (having the date
before the deadline mean)
<MrTom> we are likely to have the install party be runned the 21 of..
June, which is quite late
<MrTom> but there are 3 organisations synching their agendas for the
event to happen
<MrTom> that's quite difficult to handle :p
<fugolini> iWolf: you can just contact the event owner
<fugolini> but we have to remember there are 2 open slots
<iWolf> fugolini: spevack is going to handle that as a way of getting
the ball rolling to send out the money.
<fugolini> Have you other questions/concern
<spevack> MrTom: I'm not too worried about a Release Party for $100.
The May 1 deadline is important for larger events that will want $500,
$100, or more
<MrTom> spevack well having already 100$ for this IP would be very
well seen here
<MrTom> moreover our organisation would be able to fullfil the lack of
money we would need to create cd localy
<fugolini> you can add it in the june event list
<MrTom> thansk spevack fugolini
<fugolini> and you will able to ask for the money you need for it
<fugolini> the 100$ is for the Release Parties, but it's the propel to
invite people to organize those ones
<fugolini> for the next events there is the standard budget
<fugolini> so, next issue?
<fugolini> next issue: 2. Wiki status
<fugolini> I had problems with the wiki (pages are really slow to see)
<fugolini> and it created a lot of problem for my work on some wiki pages
<fugolini> i don't know if is my Service provider or just the server
<fugolini> but i think the work is near to be completed
<fugolini> have you qestions/concerns?
<fugolini> ok, we can skip this issue
<fugolini> 3. Local groups status
<fugolini> The aim of this section is to get updates from the local groups
<fugolini> I don't want to list all the events, because i know i could annoy you
<fugolini> so i prefer to have a open discussion
<fugolini> North America
<fugolini> South America
<iWolf> For North America it looks like we have several release
parties, so that's good.
<iWolf> We've also has some more activity on the AMbassadors list from
N.A. as well.
<fugolini> News from weekly meetings?
<spevack> Jesse Keating was at LinuxFest northwest this past weekend.
His event report will be coming soon.
<iWolf> I would like to get a more organized North America meeting established .
<iWolf> I've been waiting on some of the release party activity to
slow down so I can dedicate some cycles to that.
<fugolini> Have you special requests from NA?
<iWolf> no special requests that I am aware of.
<fugolini> Asia, India, Australia
<fugolini> i've heard about an irc meeting
<fugolini> have you news about it?
<iWolf> APAC had a weekly meeting a little over a week ago.
<iWolf> I attended and it seemed to go well.
<fugolini> Special requests?
<fugolini> or better, something that FAmSCo need to know?
<spevack> I don't have much insight into APAC right now. HarishPillay
is a Red Hatter who is working to bring some community work together
there. Our biggest plan for APAC is to have a FUDCon there at the same
time as Linux Conf australia next year in January
<iWolf> mainly just getting organized and I reviewed the process of
making sure to add their events to the Fedora Event page in order to
get access to budgeted money.
<spevack> In India, we are working on getting them stronger community support
<fugolini> that's important
<spevack> internally to Red Hat, my boss -- Michael Chen -- is trying
to find extra money in the budget that can be used by Red Hat India to
support Fedora and community
* petreu has quit ("( www.nnscript.de :: NoNameScript 4.02 :: www.XLhost.de )")
<spevack> So I'll let you guys know how that goes -- that's a little
bit separate from FAMSCo, but it's money that might end up being used
by guys like Kuahal Das, Rahul Sundaram, Sankarshan, etc.
<iWolf> good! I am sure they will appreciate that.
<spevack> As far as South America goes, FAMSco will continue to fund
them. Rodrigo Padul has asked for $700 for another show in Brazil. I
believe that we should give him that, and also I have asked him what
he anticipates the next few months looking like
<spevack> there are 3 events listed on the Fedora Events page between
now and the end of August.
<spevack> So if Rodrigo needs somewhere around $700 for each, I think
that is very much within our budget, as Brazil is where most of our
support for South America is seen.
<spevack> in short... I think that we are doing a pretty good job of
giving opportunity and funding to folks globally, so I think we just
need to keep paying attention to what is going on
<fugolini> actually the reports we received were great
<fugolini> you can saw those in the list and in Fedora Planet
<fugolini> i think we have a big amount of datas for the events sposored
<fugolini> Any other questions?
<fugolini> Just another word
<fugolini> If all agree i think Monday could be a good day for weekly meetings
<fugolini> isn't it?
<iWolf> Monday is fine with me.
<AndreasR> yep.. much more better
<spevack> I am fine with either, but I do prefer Monday!
<jmbuser> Monday is good, but perhaps we can meet 1 hour earlier
<fugolini> jmbuser: +1
<spevack> +1 also.
<fugolini> with a great majority Monday is the new meeting date
<spevack> Monday 15:00 UTC
<spevack> er, sorry...
<spevack> Monday 19:00 UTC
<jmbuser> +1 and thanks
<spevack> is that right, francesco? 19:00 UTC
<AndreasR> +1 ; I agree
<fugolini> ok, i think we can adjourn the meeting
<fugolini> == meeting adjourned ==
Every release, we have have a tagline/slogan-y phrase on the Fedora
website - for example, "Fedora 8. Infinite Possibilities." Do we
currently have anything similar for Fedora 9 (ideally, something that's
