01:00:30 <nb> hi
01:00:30 <rbergeron> hi!
01:00:31 <StabbyMc> Looks like tonight will likely be a quick meeting, due to the lack of items on the agenda.
01:00:32 <StabbyMc> So lets get the ball rolling
01:00:40 <StabbyMc> #topic Fedora Ambassadors North America Meeting - Announcements
01:00:53 <StabbyMc> So, anyone have announcements?

01:03:16 * nb shuts up then :)
01:03:18 <rbergeron> now it has :)
01:03:33 <StabbyMc> inode0: was that the potential item needing a sticker re-order?
01:03:45 <inode0> it isn't a big secret, we are going to make some things available to contributors for the asking

01:06:36 <StabbyMc> #topic Fedora Ambassadors North America Meeting - Events
01:06:49 <StabbyMc> VileGent: I think your event is the next up, OLF
01:07:16 <StabbyMc> Got what you need?
01:07:20 <VileGent> tshirts have been ordered, table is paid for, my room is booked
01:07:29 * inode0 pops in to mention we need to have SXSW on the agenda next time ...
01:07:42 <rbergeron> oh, yeah
01:08:03 <VileGent> still waiting on tshirts to arrive and the event box and v banners but thinks will be in traansit this week
01:08:03 <StabbyMc> inode0: that's likely my bad, I sent out the reminder e-mail very late today.
01:08:18 * rbergeron notes that she has been accepted for speaking - along with mchua, stickster, and ke4qqq
01:08:45 <VileGent> and spot is coming as well so i would suspect he has as well
01:08:51 <inode0> no, we are working on SXSW but aren't quite ready to deal with it yet - there is a deadline we will make if we talk next meeting though
01:08:55 <StabbyMc> VileGent: excellent.  herlo gets some of that for UTSOC, have you guys already discussed logistics?
01:09:17 <StabbyMc> inode0: is there a particular person for that agenda item?
01:09:39 <inode0> mizmo & emily dirsch
01:09:41 <VileGent> StabbyMc,  plenty of time between OLF and UTSOC
01:10:06 <StabbyMc> inode0: so I should hound them mercilessly about attending the next meeting?
01:10:37 <inode0> no, I don't think that is necessary - I'll talk
01:10:44 <StabbyMc> ack
01:10:54 <StabbyMc> Other events related news/happenings/needs?
01:10:58 <rbergeron> spot has what?
01:11:25 <VileGent> proable speaking as well
01:11:33 <rbergeron> no - he's not on the list
01:11:50 <rbergeron> i got email from beth lynn  - just the 4 of us
01:12:04 <rbergeron> (which is far better than the original one person)
01:12:36 * rbergeron notes that fudcon tempe registration is up - speaking of events

01:15:32 <StabbyMc> #topic Fedora Ambassadors North America Meeting - Budget Review
01:15:42 <StabbyMc> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAmSCo_budget
01:16:07 <StabbyMc> I don't konw if there's anything for us to discuss here?
01:16:43 <VileGent> other than 249 for balloons and 1800 for tshirts not really
01:17:35 <StabbyMc> Budget Review:
01:17:36 <StabbyMc> 3
01:18:00 <StabbyMc> 2
01:18:06 <inode0> oh, I can pop a question I guess
01:18:19 <inode0> anyone care how much we spend on lanyards? :)
01:18:39 <inode0> maybe I should rephrase that a little
01:18:44 <VileGent> well what is the current priceing
01:19:20 <inode0> target was in the $700-$800 range - commarch may kick in 50% or so to increase the order size
01:19:38 <VileGent> for what quanity
01:19:49 <inode0> order size currently is 250 - may bump to 400 or so
01:19:50 <nb> are these for OLF or something? or for normal swag?
01:19:53 <slipp3d> (wonders how to get a couple of lanyards)
01:19:58 <inode0> let me explain
01:20:09 <VileGent> 250 for 700-800
01:20:12 <VileGent> ??
01:20:13 <inode0> there was a long discussion of swag on f-a-b
01:20:29 <inode0> one of the ideas, which we have discussed before, was lanyards
01:20:51 <inode0> these aren't for throw away swag at any conference though
01:21:36 <inode0> we would distribute a bunch at FUDCon, the rest later selectively to contributors who would wear these showing their support for Fedora at other events as well
01:21:38 * nb likes the idea of fedora lanyards, i could wear one at work every day :)
01:21:51 <slipp3d> me too...
01:22:14 <inode0> so the target audience of these is specifically Fedora contributors who attend multiple events
01:22:42 <inode0> while you can wear a t-shirt one day, you can wear your lanyard every day
01:23:41 <nb> yeah
01:23:46 <inode0> VileGent: yes, we are looking at nice lanyards - not $1 ones
01:24:08 <slipp3d> yep ... I would love to have one or two of them ... any chance that I can put my name on a list for some one to send me a few (willing to pay for it if needed)
01:24:18 <inode0> go to FUDCon :)
01:24:19 <VileGent> that is still expensive for lanyards
01:24:38 <VileGent> ke4qqq,  ping
01:24:43 <slipp3d> I wish I could inode0 ... it's a bit far for me
01:25:05 <inode0> otherwise wait a bit and we'll sort out how the rest will be spread around - I don't have any definite plan
01:25:07 * mock plans to wear his t-shirt every day
01:25:37 <VileGent> inode0,  go for it
01:26:03 <inode0> I'll confirm with commarch and if they are willing to up it to 400 will do
01:26:08 <inode0> EOF
01:26:13 <nb> inode0, +1
01:26:16 <slipp3d> sounds like a plan inode0 .... really like the idea for lanyards
01:27:34 <StabbyMc> Ok, lets move to the last topic.
01:27:42 <StabbyMc> #topic Fedora Ambassadors North America Meeting - Unfinished Business/Open Floor
01:28:44 * nb wonders if rrix got buttons ordered?
01:28:46 <StabbyMc> Anyone here have a Fedora Button-up?
01:28:58 <VileGent> nope
01:29:04 <slipp3d> nope...
01:29:15 <dmaxel> Sorry for being late, power outages aren't my friends lol
01:29:17 <StabbyMc> I was debating on working on getting a black one available.
01:29:21 * inode0 wonders which question people are answering
01:29:37 <nb> StabbyMc, i'd like a blue or denim or something
01:29:43 <VileGent> StabbyMc, s
01:29:58 <nb> black and white tend to show a lot
01:30:33 <StabbyMc> nb: white, sure, but the logo pops. Black tends to not show as much, but the logo doesn't contrast as well.
01:30:53 <nb> true
01:30:58 <StabbyMc> nb: my opposition to blue or denim is that it doesn't look good with jeans.
01:31:04 <nb> StabbyMc, true
01:31:20 * nb wonders if the company would go for having all 3 available?
01:31:41 <nb> if they would, then we could offer people whatever color they prefer
01:31:46 <StabbyMc> nb: they don't really care.  They order and embroider on demand.
01:32:00 <StabbyMc> We just have to approve the colors and initial proof for the embroidery.
01:32:24 * nb would be +1 to having a white, a black, and a blue or a denim (or both even?)
01:32:43 <StabbyMc> nb: I'll see what I can finegal.
01:32:53 <nb> StabbyMc, sounds good
01:33:16 <StabbyMc> But if you have the opportunity, these shirts are not ambassador specific, so contributors, fanbois, anyone can get one and represent if they want.
01:33:57 <nb> yeah
01:34:19 <mock> represent, yo
01:34:22 <StabbyMc> anyway, that's all I had for open floor.
01:36:17 <StabbyMc> Anyone else Open Foor?
