03:16:31 <dramsey> #topic news from  FAmSCo
03:16:36 <lcafiero> hey susmit
03:16:50 <dramsey> hey lcafiero.
03:16:51 <xm4n> hi all
03:17:11 <dramsey> Hello everyone!  susmit good news from FAmSCo
03:17:43 <susmit> there is no _intersting_ update from us. But if you have anything that you want to get to the agenda, you can say it. We have a meeting tomorrow.
03:18:14 <dramsey> Cool.  Any questions/thoughts from anyone for FAmSCo
03:18:48 <susmit> or requirements
03:19:28 <dramsey> I wonder what happened to Fedora 13's yum-langpack-plugin
03:19:37 <dramsey> that's my only question...
03:20:01 <dramsey> Other people thoughts or move to next topic?
03:20:31 <callkalpa> brb
03:20:48 <susmit> dramsey: that does not come under famsco's purview
03:21:17 <susmit> ok..let's move then
03:21:43 <dramsey> okay
03:21:54 <dramsey> #topic Planning and Preparation for Fedora 12 in 2010.
03:22:04 <dramsey> #topic Planning and Preparation for Release Events Fedora 13 in APAC.
03:24:01 <dramsey> I am planning for Fedora 13 release parties and events, others?
03:24:07 <susmit> yes, we know people are intersted but we are yet to start planning
03:24:40 <susmit> for those who are planning to have release event, please start by having atleast a wiki page
03:25:17 <dramsey> True!
03:25:45 <susmit> that should detail approx. date, and budget requiremnents, plans, no of attendees.
03:25:57 <dramsey> cool...
03:26:15 <susmit> it would be easier to plan the disbursement of resourses accordingly.
03:26:19 <dramsey> Susmit does this roll into some budget / planning process for APAC?
03:26:22 <dramsey> Understood.
03:27:05 <susmit> dramsey: yes.
03:27:53 <dramsey> Should people post their budget requests somewhere along with their wiki of Release Events?  I think that Fedora 13 will be a great release to support.
03:28:12 <susmit> yes
03:28:22 <dramsey> Great, thank you.
03:29:05 <dramsey> More discussion or next topic?
03:29:28 <lcafiero> next topic, but I'm a visitor here

03:32:23 <dramsey> +1
03:32:30 <susmit> The FAD, as we are expecting, would get a few pending  works done.

03:38:54 <azneita> sorry for being late. where are you guys now?
03:39:11 <dramsey> never late...any news from your area for events and release parties?
03:39:37 <azneita> i was out of commission for 2+ mos to take care of medical stuff
03:39:49 <maktrix> :P I know I'll arrange one if not more events for f13 for sure; but not planned anything yet
03:40:03 <azneita> i just got back
03:40:53 <maktrix> I'll put my thoughts together and will add an event in the wiki shortly this week
03:41:28 <susmit> maktrix: thanks :)
03:41:28 <maktrix> the fact is I was waiting for other ambassadors of Bangladesh to step forward this time.
03:41:33 <dramsey> excellent.  f13 is very great release to support.  susmit made some good points regarding.  ;)
03:42:00 <susmit> maktrix: don't wait..take the lead but give them the resposibilities
03:42:09 <maktrix> +1
03:42:13 <dramsey> +1
03:43:00 <xm4n> The F13 release will be astonishing considering it's Beta form is "out-of-this-world".
03:43:30 <dramsey> azneita, welcome back from hospital...hope you are doing better now.
03:43:36 <dramsey> xm4n, very true.
03:43:42 <susmit> xm4n: no. I don't think so.
03:44:00 <xm4n> oh? susmit?
03:44:04 <susmit> F14 will be even better ;)
03:44:08 <dramsey> +1
03:44:21 <maktrix> +1
03:44:36 <xm4n> +1
03:44:51 <MarkDude> +1
03:45:27 <MarkDude> I am planning my 1st Fedora event - here in Walnut Creek - Northern California  - thinking about pushing date back farther to make sure we are not having beta release party
03:47:06 <dramsey> Fantastic to hear.
03:47:31 <MarkDude> I am also helping with Geeknics in the area - to attract some more folks
03:47:47 <susmit> MarkDude: I 'm sure you are in touch with NA regional leaders.
03:47:59 <MarkDude> Larry rocks
03:48:07 <dramsey> +1
03:48:19 <susmit> yes, indeed
03:48:58 <susmit> lcafiero: we are giving you feedback ^^
03:49:23 <susmit> :)
03:49:28 <MarkDude> lol
03:51:01 <susmit> dramsey: do we have anything else?
03:51:14 <dramsey> one more maybe...let's move on???
03:51:15 <dramsey> I think that we must do our best to support F13, this will be an excellent release indeed...as Susmit wrote, F14 will be even better
03:51:24 <dramsey> #topic FreeMedia
03:51:34 <dramsey> #topic Plans on APAC coordination/organization
03:52:18 <dramsey> I think that for Fedora 13, with the Release Parties/Events, consideration their media will need to be done...
03:52:53 <dramsey> Fedora 13 is no longer a CD image, therefore DVD / USB are my options...looks to right where cakes of CDs are...]
03:52:56 <dramsey> EOF
03:53:16 <dramsey> Everyone's thoughts?
03:53:28 <azneita> agree on that dramsey, any plans in the pipes for region-wide distribution of pressed media?
03:54:02 <dramsey> not sure...I saw references to others that might...susmit ideas or considerations?
03:54:08 <nirik> The plan for the desktop image to be larger than cd size has been reverted. F13 final live desktop images WILL be cd sized.
03:54:22 <dramsey> Oh good input nirik, thank you...
03:54:25 <dramsey> :D
03:54:28 <susmit> we need to know the requirement first.. we  are not doing media for  India, but if APAC need media, it is fine.
03:54:48 <nirik> no problem... there has been a lot of confusion on that issue. ;(
03:55:05 <dramsey> always good to get clarification nirik...
03:55:14 <dramsey> requirement sounds good...
03:55:15 <maktrix> since, I've had pressed media locally; I think I should do that again instead collecting from overseas
03:55:34 <dramsey> may be a thought for the June/July timeframe...
03:55:59 <dramsey> maktrix, understood..
03:56:08 <susmit> maktrix: yes. That lowers the cost.
03:56:09 <dramsey> azneita, do you think of needs?
03:56:23 <dramsey> maktrix, yes.
03:57:06 <azneita> dramsey: nothing yet on my end
03:57:14 <lcafiero> oh, thanks, MarkDude, susmit
03:57:30 <lcafiero> and dramsey
03:57:41 <dramsey> larry rocks!
03:57:51 <azneita> hear hear!
03:58:03 <dramsey> cool azneita.
