03:09:42 <zodbot> dramsey: dramsey 'David Ramsey' <diamond_ramsey@hotmail.com>
03:10:14 <lcafiero> Ah, that's better
03:10:22 <dramsey> Greetings
03:10:27 <harish> lcafiero, greetings!
03:10:37 <lcafiero> hey, dramsey, harish, everyone
03:10:48 <harish> to all USAians on this chat, Happy July the 4th!
03:10:52 <dramsey> Any news to share?
03:10:56 <dramsey> Happy July 4th
03:11:57 <harish> news: 1) I have F13 LiveCD (actually DVDs) all done.  Need people to request for them.  I will send to those who update the fp.o and in APAC
03:12:11 <dramsey> Great
03:12:36 <harish> 2) Jim Whitehurst (CEO/President Red Hat) is in APAC. He will be on CNBC tomorrow, Monday morning 7am SGT (2300 GMT, July 4th).
03:13:02 <harish> 3) Malaysia concluded their OSCON last week.  I could not make it, but there were sessions for Fedora.
03:13:47 <dramsey> Excellent news
03:14:27 <dramsey> Good to understand
03:14:36 <harish> CD requests so far from VN, NZ only.
03:14:36 <dramsey> I saw the Red Hat 6 Beta 2 announcement as well as Fedora 14 planning for Ambassadors, sounds like progress indeed.
03:14:54 <dramsey> VN like tuanta?  I remember tuanta interested in media
03:14:59 <harish> yes
03:15:03 <dramsey> +1
03:15:36 <dramsey> harish, how do the ambassadors make a media request?  Just want to make sure I understand the process / procedure
03:15:47 <harish> BTW, the F13 LiveCD I respun has oo.o, virt, xournal, and a few more.
03:16:22 <harish> dramsey, well, i think there is already a process. thus far, all requests i fulfilled came directly to me.,
03:17:18 <lcafiero> does APAC use a trac system like NA?
03:18:03 <harish> lcafiero, i think there is a trac instance, i believe susmit had set it up.
03:18:19 <lcafiero> OK, thanks. Just curious.
03:18:38 <dramsey> So, the requests go through this trac system or another way?
03:19:12 <harish> that's what I am not sure of.  I have not seen a request coming in - perhaps I am not on the list :-)
03:19:27 <dramsey> Ah...
03:20:06 <dramsey> Am certain as susmit reviews our logs, more clarification will happen to support us all.
03:20:52 <harish> dramsey, perhaps you might to highlight that request to susmit
03:21:16 <lcafiero> Sorry to cause confusion.
03:21:58 <dramsey> #idea Need some clarity with susmit on APAC trac system
03:22:18 <lcafiero> Actually, I think it's here: https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-apac/
03:22:34 <dramsey> +1
03:22:56 <dramsey> Wow harish, your F13 LiveCD with oo.o, virt, and other goodies is very supportive of the people.  Thank you for this update
03:22:56 <harish> indeed
03:23:14 <harish> that's why it is a dvd not a cd anymore.
03:23:45 <dramsey> Ah, yes I understand.  That makes logical sense
03:24:35 <dramsey> Do we have other thoughts to share or discuss?
03:25:23 <harish> There will be a POSSE event in Shanghai Aug 2-6 and Mel Chua and myself will be running it.
03:25:55 <dramsey> Excellent
03:27:20 <dramsey> I have a Fedora 13 at Akihabara, sort of my biweekly here.
03:27:40 <harish> need cds?
03:28:05 <dramsey> Sounds good to me.  I always like to share media
03:28:17 <dramsey> How should I proceed on inquiry?
03:28:31 <harish> do email me your mailing adress as well as phone # (FedEx needs that).
03:28:48 <dramsey> Okay, sounds good.  Thank you harish.  :)
03:29:07 <dramsey> Other ideas?
03:29:08 <dramsey> #topic Open floor
03:29:29 <lcafiero> I have a question: Where in Akihabara, dramsey
03:29:32 <lcafiero> ?
03:29:57 <dramsey> Good question, Akihabara is on the Yamanote Train line, circular train line Green
03:30:12 <dramsey> Akihabara is the Geek / Electronics section of Tokyo.
03:30:32 <lcafiero> Oh, I know -- I spent too much time there :-) Is there a particular place that has the F13 disks?
03:30:38 <harish> +1 to Akihabara
03:30:41 <dramsey> There are all types of goodies available for Tech Folks like us.
03:30:54 <harish> "goodies" too ;-)
03:30:58 <lcafiero> It's a cool place, harish. if you're ever in tokyo, that's your first stop.
03:31:14 <dramsey> F13 by dramsey...
03:31:20 <harish> yes, been there many times!
03:31:25 <lcafiero> ah
03:31:32 <dramsey> Yes so true, a must stop for all tech!!!
03:32:14 <dramsey> So many things, so little time
03:32:20 <dramsey> yes, goodies!

03:34:11 <dramsey> Any questions or news tuanta?
03:35:50 <tuanta> just curious about the process to reimburse for Release events
03:36:16 <dramsey> #idea need information about the process to reimburse for Release events
03:36:24 <dramsey> Good question, I have no idea
03:36:46 <tuanta> The event in Hanoi has been so long (for over a month), I posted request to Trac, but still wait and wait :)
03:37:21 <dramsey> Ah, understood.
03:38:29 <dramsey> #action need help for taunta's Hanoi Trac System request.
03:38:45 <dramsey> #info Tuanta's ticket for reimbursement request needs update/assistance
03:38:47 <tuanta> we will have more events to promote FOSS, Linux and Fedora
03:39:01 <dramsey> When is that tuanta?
03:40:00 <tuanta> currently I have no plan this month, I we will organize the Software Free Day in September
03:40:25 <tuanta> it would be the biggest event for FOSS community this year
03:40:32 <dramsey> Wow!
03:40:58 <tuanta> may have some small others this month or in August, but I am not sure up to now
03:41:30 <tuanta> and the liveCDs from Harish are so useful
03:41:45 <harish> tuanta, did you receive it already?
03:41:51 <tuanta> no
03:42:02 <tuanta> may be in next week, right?
03:42:06 <tuanta> I hope that
03:42:17 <harish> ok. my colleague is sending it out. she has been busy with Jim Whitehurst's visit this week.
03:42:27 <harish> Jim is CEO/President Red Hat.
03:42:35 <tuanta> I know :)
03:42:46 <tuanta> any one here in this chat room right now?
03:42:53 <dramsey> Just us
03:42:54 <tuanta> just three of us?
03:42:59 <tuanta> :)
03:43:02 <harish> looks like it.
03:43:05 <dramsey> had lcafiero, too.
03:43:20 <harish> we  are missing herherson, susmit
03:43:27 <tuanta> I hope to see more ones to join next times
03:43:41 <tuanta> over ten people is good :)
03:43:49 <harish> perhaps have a session 2 hours or so later? like 0500 GMT?

03:44:17 <tuanta> 10:00 AM is good for me here, in Hanoi
03:44:23 <harish> i would like to see if the person in NZ that requested the cds will be on as well.
03:44:31 <dramsey> I think herherson and susmi will review our logs.  So true more people is good.  I will make 0500 UTC, good idea.
