03:27:56 <liknus_> We are having 3 talks/workshops on Fedora
03:28:13 <dramsey> #link http://fossasia.org/
03:28:36 <dramsey> Fantastic Pierros.
03:28:43 <liknus_> We have submitted some tickets in famsco trac and we are good in terms of budget and support :)
03:28:47 <liknus_> thanks anyway dramsey :)
03:29:06 <dramsey> Understood, if you need any Swag/Live media, then please indicate.
03:29:27 <liknus_> Reports will be daily and we will have live coverage through micro-blogging :)
03:29:37 <dramsey> +1
03:29:51 <liknus_> dramsey, you have any spare stickers in APAC you can send over? (because in EMEA we are in sortage)
03:29:54 <dramsey> I think Harish made note of such swag things for Events/Release Parties.  We could note if Tuan and/or you have ideas/needs.
03:30:02 <dramsey> Fedora Stickers?
03:30:07 <liknus_> yeap :)
03:30:21 <dramsey> Myself, I have never received or used.
03:30:37 <dramsey> #action Find out about Fedora Stickers for FOSSASIA as well as APAC
03:30:43 <liknus_> Ok I will try to allocate some budget to produce there
03:31:00 <dramsey> Saw your entry at #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F14_release_events
03:31:02 <dramsey> very nice
03:31:02 <liknus_> #info liknus will try to fit the sticker production in FOSSASIA budget
03:31:03 <dramsey> :)
03:31:12 <dramsey> +1 liknus-
03:31:16 <dramsey> s/-/_
03:31:55 <dramsey> Any other good news, saw your three sessions at FOSSASIA, sounds fun!
03:31:56 <liknus_> Nice idea the double event in Tokyo dramsey :)
03:32:22 <dramsey> Thank you, first one is to do at the beginning of the "Release Cycle," then one month later.
03:32:23 <dramsey> :)
03:32:28 <liknus_> Yeap 3 sessions : Fedora Vietnam, Fedora 14 and Fedora Localization
03:32:46 <dramsey> I have not heard of Fedora Dinners, though...
03:32:51 <dramsey> +1 Pierros
03:32:52 <dramsey> :D
03:33:03 <liknus_> They will also be organized :) stay tuned..
03:33:10 <dramsey> Yeah!
03:33:15 <liknus_> Also I want to inform you of an idea about the release parties
03:33:31 <dramsey> Go for it!
03:34:02 <liknus_> Last Release (F13) we had two parallel Release Parties (Athens and Thessaloniki) done in the same time and connected through the web.
03:34:18 <liknus_> Would be nice to see that again cross-country :)
03:34:31 <dramsey> That sounds "powerful!"  I like that
03:34:53 <liknus_> It's very nice to show people that fedora is celebrated globally :)
03:35:05 <dramsey> #idea Following from Pierros' idea from 12:34:27 about "Last Release (F13) we had two parallel Release Parties (Athens and Thessaloniki) done in the same time and connected through the web."  :)
03:35:06 <dramsey> +1
03:35:28 <dramsey> Even that remote camera, video chat, very cool!
03:35:44 <liknus_> So for this Release cycle we can propose to Release parties set for the same day to try to connect with each other
03:35:55 <dramsey> Sounds fun.
03:36:23 <liknus_> and for the next Release Cycle we can try to fix that as an idea from the start (so we can have say 3 dates of Release events)
03:36:25 <dramsey> I think that azneita has something going on around the time Tuan and you are doing...may be we may touch base with the other fellow Fedora Ambassadors.
03:36:38 <dramsey> Yes, I understand and agree.
03:36:40 <dramsey> :D
03:36:45 <liknus_> fantastic :)
03:36:46 <dramsey> These are great ideas.
03:37:10 <dramsey> Well this sounds like brainstorming, I will make our topic now, that sound good?
03:37:11 <liknus_> Of course we should not make it mandatory... just a suggestion :) keep it organic ..
03:37:31 <dramsey> Organic makes a great soup!
03:37:32 <dramsey> :D
03:37:55 <liknus_> I think we are done on that. We just need to make it happen, inform the mailing list (get some feedback) and update wiki
03:38:05 <dramsey> Okay.
03:38:14 <liknus_> may I take the action item?
03:38:19 <dramsey> Idea for your exchange rates would be http://www.xe.com/
03:38:48 <dramsey> What do you want action to be, I "cut/paste" your thoughts.
03:39:20 <liknus_> #action liknus_ informs mailing list on the idea of parallel release parties and updates the wiki accordingly
03:39:28 <dramsey> #action liknus_ informs mailing list on the idea of parallel release parties and updates the wiki accordingly
03:39:29 <dramsey> +1
03:39:46 <dramsey> Other thoughts or open floor?
03:40:05 <dramsey> I think we touched on APAC plans, too.
03:40:08 <liknus_> (I think that youdont have to be chair to make an action item...anyway)
03:40:14 <dramsey> okay.
03:40:20 <dramsey> #chair liknus_
03:40:20 <zodbot> Current chairs: dramsey liknus_
03:40:23 <dramsey> just in case.
03:40:41 <liknus_> thanks dramsey :P
03:40:58 <dramsey> I still learning, irc chat commands, always reviewing the commands for stuff.
03:41:19 <dramsey> Pierros, other ideas?
03:41:52 <liknus_> nothing for the moment :)
03:42:00 <dramsey> I am sure that Harish and Susmit will review our logs and provide feedback accordingly for our ideas.
03:42:03 <dramsey> Same here.
03:42:12 <dramsey> I will list the other topics, now
03:42:17 <dramsey> #topic APAC plans
03:42:17 <liknus_> That would be nice :)
03:42:22 <dramsey> #topic Open Floor
03:42:35 <dramsey> Very true Pierros.
03:42:59 <liknus_> dramsey, You are based in Tokyo now?
03:43:04 <dramsey> I think that I have nothing to add, except, asmartgoat has been making progress on the APACK box, sort of our Fedora Ambassador's box.
03:43:06 <dramsey> Yup.
03:43:15 <dramsey> We had a typhoon last night...
03:43:27 <liknus_> oh... hope you are alright
03:43:28 <dramsey> Weather is great today, so after IRC, I go shopping for food.
03:43:38 <dramsey> If you travel through Tokyo, then I am here.
03:43:39 <liknus_> lol dramsey :)
03:43:51 <dramsey> I missed seeing Sandros during his travels earlier this year.
03:44:00 <liknus_> thanks :) I might visit Tokyo in late February :)
03:44:15 <dramsey> +1
03:44:18 <dramsey> I will be here.
03:44:20 <dramsey> Stores for food were closed last night, so I ate leftovers...
03:45:07 <liknus_> Ok so, shall we end this meeting so you can grab some food ? :D
03:45:42 <dramsey> For http://www.wunderground.com/global/stations/48900.html http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/157
03:45:54 <dramsey> Yes, let's end and we both enjoy day.
