03:30:22 <wariola> gearing up for f13
03:30:27 <hanthana> dramsey: KageSenshi you can distribute F13 instead of F12 from next week onwards
03:30:57 <dramsey> true!
03:31:02 <dramsey> Is great topic!

03:31:19 <hanthana> cool
03:31:26 <bckurera> cool
03:31:38 <wariola> as long as u have a report event for the distribution
03:31:48 <hanthana> wariola: RH India is the closest Office for bckurera
03:31:56 <wariola> oo ok
03:32:04 <wariola> maybe u can ping susmit
03:32:30 <dramsey> +1 for Susmit in India
03:32:32 <hanthana> but it was hard to get done from RH India
03:32:41 <dramsey> +1 for Harrish in Sinagpore.
03:33:06 <dramsey> How much media do you need bckurera?  Help Susmit help you with idea of your requirement needs.
03:35:14 <dramsey> great stuff, other ideas?
03:36:00 <dramsey> anything else to add or next topic?

03:37:39 <dramsey> Okay, next topic.
03:37:44 <dramsey> #topic Planning and Preparation for Release Events Fedora 13 in APAC.
03:38:06 <dramsey> I hope Fedora 13 will be released in time (25 of May) doing a release party on 30th,.
03:38:09 <dramsey> How about you?
03:38:19 <wariola> we in malaysia is planning to have a launch party on the 19th june 2010
03:38:21 <KageSenshi> malaysia's release event will be on 19th june
03:38:39 <hanthana> for the moment four release events were planed in Sri Lanka
03:38:47 <bckurera_> not yet set in the University of Peradeniya
03:38:50 <bckurera_> and Kandy
03:38:58 <dramsey> Fantastic!
03:39:06 <dramsey> I am doing Fedora 13 release party / event, too.

03:39:19 <hanthana> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents/SriLanka/Denuwara
03:39:19 <hanthana> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents/SriLanka/Waththegama
03:39:28 <dramsey> Nice.
03:39:32 <hanthana> here are the three events out of four
03:39:57 <dramsey> +1
03:40:02 <dramsey> Sidenote from last month's April meeting with susmit, "...03:24:40 <susmit> for those who are planning to have release event, please start by having atleast a wiki page..03:25:45 <susmit> that should detail approx. date, and budget requiremnents, plans, no of attendees....03:26:15 <susmit> it would be easier to plan the disbursement of resourses accordingly. ."
03:40:09 <KageSenshi> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/MalaysianTeam/Events/Release_Event_13_Kuala_Lumpur
03:41:22 <dramsey> I think that we APAC have great support with susmit.  We must do the wiki / budget plan to help them help support us.
03:42:24 <bckurera> i can schedule the event with the media
03:42:32 <dramsey> Good
03:42:54 <KageSenshi> wariola, any idea when harish will start producing media at .sg ?
03:43:32 <bckurera> hanthana = how about media distribution in Sri Lanka
03:44:00 <hanthana> bckurera: join with the FreeMedia project
03:44:00 <wariola> KageSenshi, didnt ask yet
03:44:04 <wariola> its not harish btw
03:44:20 <wariola> its someone called .. argh i forgot the name
03:44:33 <bckurera> i m
03:44:45 <wariola> i plan to ping them as soon as f13 is released
03:45:37 <KageSenshi> ok
03:45:47 <hanthana> wariola: more likely RC3 going to be the final
03:46:03 <wariola> yeah
03:46:10 <wariola> but fedora always slip
03:46:14 <wariola> so better wait
03:46:23 <wariola> besides the event is still a month away
03:47:09 <hanthana> wariola: ok
03:47:41 <hanthana> i have a question on events page
03:47:53 <dramsey> what is the question?
03:47:59 <dramsey> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents#India.2C_Asia.2C_and_Australia_.28India.2FAPAC.29
03:48:01 <dramsey> this page?
03:48:01 <hanthana> obviously title for the APAC
03:48:41 <hanthana> is India and AUS are the main contributors for the  in APAC events?
03:49:07 <hanthana> why don't we name it as Asia (APAC)
03:49:28 <KageSenshi> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia-Pacific ?
03:49:32 <dramsey> Ah, I think APAC stands for Asia Pacific or something like that.
03:50:07 <bckurera> Asia Pasific and Asian Countries???
03:50:08 <dramsey> For the F13 release events some people are posting here
03:50:11 <dramsey> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F13_release_events#APAC
03:50:12 <hanthana> then ASIA is fine
03:50:16 <KageSenshi> india not listed there
03:50:29 <bckurera> ASIA is gud i think so too

04:06:25 <dramsey> #topic Report current status of upcoming Fedora Events in APAC. See Fedora Events page.
04:06:36 <dramsey> I think that we have touched on this anything to add?
04:06:43 <dramsey> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents#India.2C_Asia.2C_and_Australia_.28India.2FAPAC.29
04:07:05 <KageSenshi> wariola, any updates on MOSC ?
04:07:46 <dramsey> #link http://conf.oss.my/
04:09:00 * KageSenshi pokes wariola
04:10:26 <wariola> yes KageSenshi
04:10:41 <wariola> what update?
04:11:20 <KageSenshi> wariola, plans during the event etc ..
04:12:28 <wariola> sys admin day
04:12:38 <wariola> u refer to that
04:13:02 <wariola> actually my daughter is havung a fever, i am holding her now
04:13:06 <wariola> :(
04:13:13 <tuanta> I see someone post event onto: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F13_release_events#APAC some other post onto https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents#India.2C_Asia.2C_and_Australia_.28India.2FAPAC.29
04:13:27 <tuanta> it may confuse others
04:13:29 <dramsey> hang in there wariola
04:14:07 <tuanta> I think the main area for F13 release event is https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F13_release_events
04:14:36 <dramsey> I remember that too.
04:15:34 <dramsey> More stuff or next topic about media/swag?
04:16:30 <tuanta> no more news from me
04:17:00 <dramsey> me, too.
04:17:11 <KageSenshi> none for now i guess
04:17:21 <dramsey> okay
04:17:22 <dramsey> #topic FreeMedia (will skip this topic, if there is no query.)
04:17:24 <tuanta> just still want to have "official" high quality medias of Fedora
04:17:49 <dramsey> I am doing Fedora 12 DVDs as well as loading USB keys with Fedora 12 image.  May be future for us is DVDs / USB keys
04:18:22 <dramsey> tuanta, do you need media?  Others get from Singapore which is probably close to you.
04:18:38 <tuanta> cool
04:18:40 <bckurera> i m hving i too loaded images into usb
04:19:01 <dramsey> +1 bckurera
04:19:10 <tuanta> USB is too expensive for giving for free
04:19:39 <tuanta> I would like to have good medias to distribute inside our community
04:19:48 <bckurera> official free media is the berrir for events
04:20:04 <tuanta> like Ubuntu has, actually
04:20:36 <bckurera> +1 tuanta
04:21:14 <wariola> ironic that nowadays ubuntu limit their cd distribution
04:21:21 <wariola> it is not as easy as before
04:21:39 <dramsey> +1 tuanta
04:22:25 <dramsey> So for this topic does anyone need media / swag?  I think that other regions like North America and EMEA, discuss this idea to help.  :)
04:22:37 <tuanta> Ubuntu is successful in PR their name, and one of the factor, I think, is free DVD (high quality, with their name printed on top) distribution
04:23:13 <bckurera> yes ubuntu send them to representstives
04:23:18 * KageSenshi nods
04:23:29 <dramsey> nods
04:24:43 <dramsey> I could always use DVD media, especially with Fedora 13 by June.
04:24:54 <dramsey> How about you?
04:26:00 <tuanta> I prefer CD, but DVD is OK
04:26:30 <dramsey> Good.  Other thoughts?  Or next topic?
04:26:31 <KageSenshi> DVDs are nice to have for me :) .. usually i request CDs ..
04:26:35 <bckurera> me too DVDs
04:26:44 <dramsey> Do you need media?
04:28:08 <tuanta> from Fedora 13, we must use DVD for both live and install medias
04:28:25 <tuanta> since the image is bigger than a CD
04:28:56 <dramsey> +1  understood.
04:28:58 <bckurera> nice
04:29:17 * hanthana_ still use CD as many ppl from Rural areas has CD roms
04:29:30 <bckurera> I need some Fedora 13 official media to put in to the Uni libraries
04:30:00 <hanthana_> we should push both DVD and CD as per user request
04:30:58 <dramsey> True
04:32:18 <dramsey> Other thoughts or next topic?
04:32:36 <bckurera> +1 hanthana
04:33:34 <bckurera> so how is the media distribution works here??
04:35:19 <dramsey> A media / event / release party, with a wiki and request must be made.
04:36:03 <tuanta> how do I request the "official" media?
04:37:30 <bckurera> i m having same question too?
04:38:12 <KageSenshi> in .MY we directly ping .SG ..
04:38:27 <dramsey> +1 KageSenshi
04:38:41 <bckurera> in sri lanka???
04:38:55 <KageSenshi> no idea XD
04:39:30 <dramsey> #idea need to figure out how media is provided to Sri Lanka.
04:39:52 <KageSenshi> and other countries too ...
04:39:57 <dramsey> bckurera who is your mentor?
04:40:03 <dramsey> +1 KageSenshi
