04:08:56 <tuanta> #topic News from FAmSCo
04:09:07 <tuanta> any news?
04:09:10 <bckurera> We have some news
04:09:21 <tuanta> +1 bckurera
04:09:24 <udinnet> So go on
04:09:32 <bckurera> there is less than 1 week to FUDCon to happen
04:09:44 <bckurera> So this is the most awaited moment in APAC yet
04:09:54 <bckurera> sadly I missed :)
04:09:59 <bckurera> And the second is
04:10:05 <tuanta> I see you can not attend
04:10:14 <bckurera> FPL announced the Fedora elections
04:10:19 <bckurera> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Elections
04:10:32 <tuanta> yes, I see your nomination
04:10:39 <tuanta> +1 bckurera
04:10:42 <bckurera> I hope there are more nominations from APAC for FAmSCo
04:11:17 <bckurera> further changing FAD password thing need some attention
04:11:20 <tuanta> I am considering to nominate for FAmSCo
04:11:26 <bckurera> That is all I have
04:11:34 <bckurera> harish any info?
04:11:43 <tuanta> but first, I am thinking what I can do, how I will do, etc.
04:11:44 <harish> bckurera, info about?
04:11:55 <bckurera> news I mean harish?
04:12:06 <harish> sure
04:12:20 <harish> i have a request from RH APAC marketing about creating media.
04:12:34 <tuanta> cool
04:12:51 <harish> they are keen to support us to make the dissemination of media to areas that are not currently covered by ambassadors.
04:13:23 <bckurera> We are going to make them ourselves, F16 DVD
04:13:27 <harish> we did have a request from an indonesian school about fedora and we (RH APAC marketing and I) shipped a bunch of F15 cds to them.
04:13:39 <udinnet> +r bckurera
04:13:51 <udinnet> +1 bckurera
04:13:58 <kulll> i gtg :(
04:14:03 <harish> so the question is how else can we push more aggressively into as wide a region as possible with media.
04:14:05 <tuanta> harish, I will be in KL about Nov 17-20. Can I bring some back to Vietnam from KL?
04:14:18 <bckurera> harish we have one FAm in Indonesia as I can remember
04:14:21 <harish> i don't think f16 media will be ready by then.
04:14:39 <tuanta> I need F16 media :)
04:14:46 <harish> btw, all f16 media I make will be 64-bit only.
04:14:54 <tuanta> so, we can have other chances
04:15:14 <harish> so the question for all here is how to
04:15:26 <harish> reach out to countries/cities that have no ambassadors.
04:15:34 <bckurera> harish I think of having some 32 bits DVDs as well here they need it :)
04:15:52 <bckurera> harish I think of this problem
04:15:55 <tuanta> however, for media discussion, we have another separated topic next
04:16:06 <tuanta> should we jump to?
04:16:07 <harish> ok defer till then.
04:16:08 <bckurera> basically expanding the territories with in APAC
04:16:25 <bckurera> will discuss there
04:16:27 <harish> APAC is defined already.
04:16:42 <harish> need to get more involvement within areas not currently showing up.
04:16:58 <bckurera> harish I mean countries in APAC where there are no FAms
04:17:00 <harish> like thailand, taiwan, pakistan
04:17:15 <bckurera> Pakisthan we have FAms harish
04:17:29 <harish> how about tw and th? and id?
04:17:37 <bckurera> taiwan is supported by kaio
04:17:41 <udinnet> There were some pakistani FAms
04:17:43 <tuanta> should we next one by one to the next topics now?
04:17:52 <harish> ok
04:18:05 <bckurera> I have contact with Pakisthan FAms I ll try and let you know about that harish
04:18:33 <harish> ok
04:18:38 <bckurera> next pls>>
