03:16:31 <dramsey> #topic news from  FAmSCo
03:17:02 <dramsey> harish good input that you know of?
03:17:08 <harish> is susmit on line?
03:17:20 <harish> dramsey, nothing I can report on from FAmSCo though :-(.
03:17:47 <dramsey> not sure, but I am sure that susmit will provide input based upon our log notes...susmit is very grand about review.
03:17:51 <dramsey> Understood harish.
03:18:06 <dramsey> #topic Planning and Preparation for Fedora 12 and Fedora 13 in 2010.
03:18:07 <harish> ok
03:18:31 <dramsey> I am doing Fedora 12 now and getting ready for Fedora 13 in May...only DVD media.
03:18:50 <harish> live DVD or just media?
03:18:58 <callkalpa> I'm currently in F12
03:19:25 <dramsey> Trying to staying with media...though requests for live USB are there.  The live CD will no longer be possible with F13.
03:19:44 <harish> all my systems are on 12 and have been trying to get the F13 Alphas to boot within a VM.  That has not worked yet.
03:19:57 <callkalpa> so will there be no live cd with F13 onwards?
03:20:15 <dramsey> callkalpa, true the image is too big for CD in F13
03:20:16 <harish> dramsey, btw, I will be in Tokyo Apr 8-17 and it would be great if we can meet up.
03:20:20 <dramsey> harish, cool on F13 with VM.
03:20:51 <dramsey> I am here for you Harish!!!  The Cherry Blossoms are nice now and if no storm, then okay 8th to 17th.
03:20:51 <callkalpa> dramsey, well that's news
03:21:13 <dramsey> definitely news on the live CD image...so I am moving towards DVD as well as USB.
03:21:29 <hanthana> sorry guys for late attendance :)
03:21:37 <dramsey> Hi Hanthana!
03:21:41 <harish> perhaps the f13 alphas have not been optimized?
03:21:43 <hanthana> dramsey: hey
03:21:44 <dramsey> Where are you from?  I am from Japan.
03:21:57 <harish> hanthana, greetings! Harish (from Singapore)
03:22:04 <callkalpa> hanthana, welcome
03:22:06 <dramsey> May be a look at fedoraforums.org for the VM is good....
03:22:08 <hanthana> dramsey: i am from SriLanka both callkalpa and me in same group ;-)
03:22:16 <callkalpa> :-)
03:22:20 <harish> excellent
03:22:22 <dramsey> +1 for your participation!  :D
03:22:27 <dramsey> yes, excellent
03:22:30 <hanthana> hi harish after long time
03:22:56 <harish> :-)
03:23:40 <dramsey> hanthana, have you seen our agenda, if not then
03:23:51 <dramsey> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Meetings/2010-04-04#Agenda
03:24:13 <dramsey> We were at "Planning and Preparation for Fedora 12 and Fedora 13 in 2010. "
03:24:18 <hanthana> dramsey: thanks .. just came from a funeral :)
03:24:27 <dramsey> Ah, sorry to hear...
03:24:32 <harish> +1
03:25:08 <callkalpa> +1
03:25:13 <dramsey> +1
03:25:14 <harish> f13 is about 7 weeks away
03:25:31 <harish> are any of you involved with the marketing group?
03:25:42 <callkalpa> nope harish
03:25:48 <harish> hmm.
03:25:51 <dramsey> I have done a little help to the notes page...
03:26:06 <dramsey> Yup, the F13 features are really cool and if everyone has a system to try will be good may be a great chance..
03:26:14 <harish> they are done a great job and we should be using their good work for APAC.
03:26:49 <dramsey> +1
03:26:56 <callkalpa> have they published a feature list for F13?
03:26:57 <dramsey> agreed harish, very logical though.
03:27:00 <dramsey> yes.
03:27:12 <harish> and sicne f13 is Goddard, we can see how best to tie in within the respective countries' space efforts - as a start
03:27:16 <dramsey> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing#Release_deliverables
03:27:28 <dramsey> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F13_feature_profiles
03:27:38 <dramsey> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_13_Talking_Points
03:28:00 <callkalpa> Thanks dramsey
03:28:02 <harish> would be interesting to see if Goddard and the Indian, Japanese, Chinese space efforta had any form of link.
03:28:14 <dramsey> true.
03:28:42 <harish> even the Malaysians as well.
03:30:31 <callkalpa> +1
03:31:23 <dramsey> Cool, other good stuff or next topic?
03:31:42 <harish> something sorta off topic
03:31:49 <dramsey> Go for it.
03:31:51 <harish> and might seem as self-promotion :-)
03:31:59 <callkalpa> :-)
03:32:22 <harish> speaking of Goddard and space exploration, I have always wanted to go to the moon.
03:32:54 <harish> ever since I watched Neil Armstrong on the moon on a black-white tv at home over 40 years ago!
03:33:11 <dramsey> Sounds grand...
03:33:17 <harish> and I have spoken about it here -
03:33:39 <harish> http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7669064991056887430
03:33:52 <callkalpa> harish, hope that your dream will come true harish :-)
03:34:06 <dramsey> I heard that the Virgin Atlantic "space flights" are on...that would touch space...
03:34:27 <dramsey> +1 for dreams
03:34:30 <harish> not the same :-)
03:34:37 <dramsey> true.
03:36:43 <dramsey> Anything else or next topic?
03:36:52 <hanthana> harish: good luck dude
03:37:04 <dramsey> good luck harish.
03:37:07 <hanthana> susmit_: subha prabah :)
03:37:12 <susmit_> sorry, a bit late.
03:37:17 <dramsey> Welcome susmit!
03:37:23 <harish> susmit_, welcome.
03:37:29 <susmit_> hanthana, subha prabah :)
03:37:51 <susmit_> can anyone please pm me the log so far?
03:38:10 <susmit_> and what are we discussing now?
03:38:52 <callkalpa> we were on ""Planning and Preparation for Fedora 12 and Fedora 13 in 2010"
03:38:53 <harish> trying to see if there are local links between Goddard and the national space programs
03:39:01 <callkalpa> and now we are in a bit off topic ;-)
03:39:14 <dramsey> Whoops...right finishing https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Meetings/2010-04-04
03:39:16 <harish> could serve as a means to link back to the community
03:39:21 <dramsey> Planning and Preparation for Fedora 12 and Fedora 13 in 2010.
03:39:26 <dramsey> Any news from Famsco
03:39:54 <susmit_> Nothing other that we have a lot of unused fund. (~4.5K)
03:39:58 <susmit_> for APAC
03:40:23 <harish> btw, I have about 1000 pieces of the laptop stickers
03:40:49 <dramsey> Is this for a certain time frame like quarter for APAC?
03:41:00 <harish> dramsey, yes
03:41:02 <susmit_> three months...march-may
03:41:06 <callkalpa> harish, how much will it cost to send 1 to SL ;-) ?
03:41:36 <susmit_> so, it it time that we start preparing for release events?
03:41:38 <harish> email me your mailing address and a phone # and I will get it shipped to you. hpillay at redhat dot com
03:41:56 <harish> susmit_, yes
03:41:59 <dramsey> Yes, definitely preparing!
03:42:14 <callkalpa> harish, wow that's great, thanks harish
03:42:35 <harish> RH APAC will be making F13 CDs and DVDs. Not decided on the quantum yet.
03:42:50 <dramsey> cool harish.
03:43:10 <susmit_> cool..so almost all logistics are well placed
03:43:13 <harish> funds for that is shared between commarch and RH APAC marketing
03:43:38 <susmit_> let's target for at least one release event/country in APAC..and we need volunteers
03:44:20 <dramsey> :)  Susmit, sounds like a plan!  I like that!  :)
03:45:09 <susmit> and not to mention that we don't have any presence in 51 countries...so they get priority if anyone steps up
03:45:10 <harish> we are missing a lot of ambassadors on this session today. Malaysia, Vietnam, Philippines
03:45:12 <susmit> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/APAC
03:45:31 <susmit> harish, yes. But I am sure they will follow up in the list
03:45:46 <harish> susmit, of course they will.
03:45:51 * hanthana had an quick chat with callkalpa possibility of having a F13 release between May 31st to June 3rd
03:46:02 <hanthana> :-/
03:46:06 <harish> there was some interested in Indonesia - need to rope them in.
03:46:31 <susmit> yes
03:46:36 <dramsey> yes
03:47:03 <callkalpa> well, we are planning on an event on May, so if the release of F13 happens as scheduled, we will be able to do a F13 release as well in SL
03:47:47 <susmit> callkalpa, that would be nice...it's long time we didn't see any event in SL
03:48:01 <susmit> s/it's/it's a
03:48:08 <dramsey> Sending F13 power to SL!
03:48:16 <callkalpa> :-)
03:49:11 <susmit> harish, are you doing one in Singapore?
03:49:37 <susmit> dramsey, are you?
03:49:38 <hanthana> susmit: we have a slot from IT week of Dharmasoka College IT week + one session from the final day talks
03:49:42 <dramsey> Yup!
03:49:57 <susmit> We are looking to club the FAD pune and release event together :)
03:50:02 <hanthana> we can use one day for ur release
03:50:18 <dramsey> I have been following the F13 Alpha/Beta...looks like Alpha, then Beta slipped by a week...not sure if General Availability will...
03:50:24 <susmit> hanthana, sure.
03:50:28 <hanthana> susmit: yes, saw last event photos and it was awesome
03:50:37 <susmit> dramsey, it generally does.
03:50:43 <harish> susmit, yes we will have something in Singapore
03:51:38 <harish> we have most of the polytechnics and universities interested in this already (since F9) and so we will continue with the push.
03:52:29 <susmit> How about keeping the next meet reserved for release event planning?
03:52:36 <dramsey> +
03:52:38 <dramsey> +1
03:52:42 <callkalpa> +1
03:52:49 <susmit> dramsey, how about sending out a mail announcing that we are planning for release events in APAC and those who are interested should join the next meeting?
03:52:58 <dramsey> I think that is a grand plan.
03:53:03 <dramsey> That shall be done.
03:53:07 <callkalpa> that's great
03:53:09 <susmit> dramsey, thanks :)

03:54:44 <dramsey> Sure that sounds good to me.
03:54:59 <callkalpa> yeah, I think it's better to start the thread prior to the irc meeting
03:55:10 <susmit> anything else in the agenda?
03:55:12 <dramsey> Should I make topic "Plans on APAC coordination/organization ?"
03:55:20 <susmit> dramsey, sure
