07:14:24 <dramsey> Susmit, do you know anything about FAmSCo or should I skip that agenda item then?
07:14:34 <susmit> dramsey, a lot.
07:14:43 <susmit> no, I have things to say.
07:14:53 <dramsey> #agenda News from  FAmSCo may be skip this item if no FAmSCo information / representation is at meeting.
07:14:56 <dramsey> Please, empower us.
07:15:41 <susmit> 1. We have opened the FAmSCo list. We have retired the old one and now have a new one at http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/famsco/ where we have open archiving policy.
07:16:27 <dramsey> Great!
07:16:27 <susmit> Now ambassadors can take part directly to policy making. Posting to this list is restricted, but we can talk on fedora-ambassadors list
07:16:39 <dramsey> Understood.
07:16:53 * KageSenshi nods
07:17:14 <susmit> 2. We have updated and clarified the election rules (it is not so important), you can check it here:
07:17:15 <susmit> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAmSCo_election_rules
07:17:28 <dramsey> +1
07:17:39 <susmit> and give your feedbacks.
07:17:40 <dramsey> Sounds effective and useful to Fedora ambassadors.
07:17:52 <dramsey> Got it review and give feedback.  ;)
07:18:25 <susmit> 3. I have talked with Harish and have setup an trac instance for APAC requests.
07:18:47 <susmit> This way we can organise ourselves better to suite the needs of APAC ambassadors
07:18:59 <susmit> the trac is here: https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-apac/wiki
07:19:34 <dramsey> +1
07:20:00 <KageSenshi> +1

07:22:06 <susmit> Also, we are working on a monthly report for each FAmSCo members. So that the community remains updated about what is happening.

07:23:12 <dramsey> Next agenda item, then...
07:23:15 <dramsey> #agenda Planning and Preparation for Fedora 12 in 2010.
07:23:21 <susmit> a sec.
07:23:27 <dramsey> Okay, whoops.
07:24:04 <susmit> I was thinking if it would make sense to have a apac-newsletter / weekly magazine
07:24:25 <dramsey> That sounds like an idea with potential.
07:24:44 <KageSenshi> yup
07:24:45 <susmit> but someone else has to take a lead.
07:24:56 <susmit> EOF
07:25:56 <dramsey> May be that could be inquired with the fedora-ambassador's list then or somewhere else?  :)
07:27:05 <susmit> nah...that would attract too many suggestions. Let's start and then through it to the list..
07:27:20 <dramsey> Cool.
07:27:34 <dramsey> Anything else or next agenda item, then?
07:27:46 <susmit> next one please
