03:22:52 <dramsey> How are you all doing today?
03:23:07 <tuanta> I am fine :)
03:23:19 <asmartgoat> Good, i've got some news from FAmASCO
03:23:25 <dramsey> Agenda is https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Meetings/2010-11-07#Agenda
03:23:32 <dramsey> #topic News from  FAmSCo
03:23:35 <dramsey> Go for it!
03:23:47 <asmartgoat> We have two new mentors in apac
03:23:57 <asmartgoat> Calius 'kaio' Chance
03:24:04 <asmartgoat> and Gerard braad
03:24:10 <asmartgoat> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Gbraad
03:24:12 <lcafiero> +1 to each
03:24:14 <asmartgoat> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Kaio
03:24:30 <dramsey> +1 for both great mentors!  I think that they both are running for FAmsCO, too
03:24:34 <asmartgoat> This is to consider the growth of ambassadors in china.
03:25:03 <dramsey> Great point!
03:25:25 <dramsey> +1 and +1 equals +2
03:25:38 <tuanta> :)
03:26:08 <dramsey> Other good stuff?
03:26:33 <lcafiero> Heh
03:27:47 <tuanta> Fedora 14 just released, and it has got interested in a lot here in Vietnam :)
03:27:53 <dramsey> #topic Report current Status of upcoming events
03:28:01 <dramsey> Cool Tuan!
03:28:27 <tuanta> I got 2-3 invitation from Universities to present about Fedora and the Community in Vietnam
03:28:38 <tuanta> I accepted all :)
03:28:50 <dramsey> +1
03:28:56 <tuanta> it's so surprise to me
03:29:09 <dramsey> Well done, Tuan!  Keep up the great work.
03:29:11 <tuanta> before that, almost people just know Linux = Ubuntu
03:29:13 <asmartgoat> cool +1
03:29:46 <asmartgoat> If anyone has any time /money to send me a cd with an 'iso' it would be appreciated, ive got 50cd's ready to burn, my slow internet is... well slow...
03:30:15 <tuanta> now, I will try to let them know, Linux and FOSS should be Fedora with much more contributions to the world FOSS community
03:31:11 <dramsey> asmartgoat, you have media needs?
03:31:18 <dramsey> Tuan, you are being recognized.  Would be good to make a trip to Tokyo in 2011 like you did before.
03:31:18 <tuanta> asmartgoat, you meant you can not download the LiveMedia ISO file?
03:31:28 <asmartgoat> yes
03:31:36 <tuanta> +1 david
03:32:00 <dramsey> #idea Tuan to Tokyo in 2011 to support Fedora.
03:32:01 <asmartgoat> it will take multiple days to download that. so if someone could be kind to send me a cd with it, so i can replicate
03:32:13 <dramsey> How about Harish for media?
03:32:24 <asmartgoat> +1 to taun tokyo
03:32:26 <dramsey> Harish had a boatload of Live Media.
03:32:37 <dramsey> Does that sound correct for asmartgoat, tuan?

03:42:21 <tuanta> +1
03:43:01 <asmartgoat> so it would be appreciated for anyone who wants one in APAC who complys with the goal of the APACK box, to email me that information. asmartgoat@fedora Project.org
03:44:03 <dramsey> Any word on approval for the APACK box or request via Trac or something like that?
03:44:32 <tuanta> +1, David. very important :)
03:44:39 <asmartgoat> i havent been able to request yet
03:44:53 <asmartgoat> so basically im putting the structure down
03:45:00 <asmartgoat> for it
03:45:16 <asmartgoat> i need to get fully accepted into the group :)
03:45:33 <dramsey> understood
03:45:59 <dramsey> asmartgoat, have you heard from Harish or Susmit about the APACK box?
03:46:10 <asmartgoat> no i haven't
03:46:17 <dramsey> May be an e-mail to the fedora-ambassadors list would be a good start.
03:46:21 <dramsey> What do you guys think?
03:46:32 <dramsey> As well as a Trac Request for sure.
03:46:43 <dramsey> That is the right procedure, correct Tuan?

03:47:35 <asmartgoat> correct, azneita is
03:48:07 <tuanta> I am mentoring myself :)
03:48:20 <dramsey> I think may be best to have both your mentor and you, do the deal.  What do you think?
03:48:36 <tuanta> +1, David
03:48:51 <asmartgoat> azneita should go through this meeting... so i'll just do something...

03:52:43 <asmartgoat> i was thinking dramsey, of course only if he wants?
03:53:19 <dramsey> First, we get approval for the APACK boxes...one needs patience for the Trac Process...
03:53:33 <dramsey> By that time, you may be already moved in...
03:53:46 <dramsey> Just in case, depends on the approval for sure.

04:12:11 <dramsey> Do you need any media, swag, and/or support FranciscoD?
04:12:21 <tuanta> +1, David
04:12:30 <asmartgoat> the general purpose re-usable fedora poster designs (tounge twister) are of the old Freedom voice infinity
04:12:45 <FranciscoD> dramsey: not at the moment , No. I'll need it in a bit, and I'll contact susmit for it over the -india list
04:12:49 <tuanta> it should be changed
04:13:48 <tuanta> we have now "Freedom - Friends - Features - First"
04:13:52 <tuanta> http://fedoraproject.org/en/about-fedora#freedom
04:14:08 <tuanta> so the old one "Freedom voice infinity" is too old
04:14:13 <dramsey> Excellent.
04:14:23 <dramsey> +1 FranciscoD
04:14:31 <dramsey> Susmit is great!

04:17:12 <dramsey> Cool!  Should we end or other ideas?
04:17:16 <FranciscoD> dramsey: would this be the right place to have a short discussion on fedora distribution ?
04:17:26 <FranciscoD> since most of us Ambassadors do it
04:17:30 <FranciscoD> ;)
04:17:31 <dramsey> I am okay with it.
04:17:38 <asmartgoat> i believe so, its open floor
04:17:40 <dramsey> Are you talking Free-media
04:17:41 <asmartgoat> :D
04:17:47 <tuanta> +1
04:17:52 <dramsey> We are free and open-minded.
04:17:53 <FranciscoD> dramsey: not just free-media, the entire process in general
04:17:55 <dramsey> +1
04:17:58 <FranciscoD> great :D
04:17:58 <FranciscoD> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Ankursinha/Fedora_Media_Distribution_Draft
04:18:04 <dramsey> Your ball, FranciscoD
04:18:07 <dramsey> #chair FranciscoD
04:18:07 <zodbot> Current chairs: FranciscoD asmartgoat dramsey lcafiero tuanta
04:18:13 <FranciscoD> dramsey: I already rolled it ^
04:18:18 <FranciscoD> ;^)
04:18:44 <FranciscoD> A little bit of history, (most of you've been here longer than I have and will probably know this stuff already)
04:19:11 <FranciscoD> The "fedora distribution" team/project was initially created as a central point of contact for all distribution activities
04:19:21 <FranciscoD> with Thomas Chung at the top
04:19:39 <FranciscoD> since then, the different channels have broken into independent, un co-ordinated bits
04:20:09 <dramsey> I remember that I got my first DVD from  Thomas Chung
04:20:14 <FranciscoD> lack of co-ordination = not as efficient a distribution workflow as we can have
04:20:30 <tuanta> +1
04:20:45 <dramsey> Following the story...
04:20:52 * FranciscoD remembers getting thrown off the free media list by Thomas Chung -> was a  misunderstanding ^_^
04:20:54 <asmartgoat> +1
04:21:19 <dramsey> You are back on now, right?
04:21:29 <dramsey> Therefore the essence of "Channels (in order of priority) " - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Ankursinha/Fedora_Media_Distribution_Draft#Channels_.28in_order_of_priority.29
04:21:41 <FranciscoD> dramsey: aye, was only out for a couple of hours iirc, heh
04:21:49 <dramsey> What was the misunderstanding, FranciscoD if I may ask?
04:22:16 <FranciscoD> dramsey: they were cleaning up, and I had only been a member for 3 days or so and hadnt accepted a ticket yet
04:22:27 <FranciscoD> so i got booted. lol
04:23:15 <FranciscoD> should I proceed? :) ?
04:23:18 <dramsey> Understood and only out for a couple of hours.
04:23:20 <dramsey> Please.
04:23:40 <asmartgoat> hoping they dont boot me now, i dont have the new iso to send yet. :)
04:23:51 <FranciscoD> I'm from India, and we receive a *lot* of free media requests
04:23:53 <tuanta> :)
04:24:08 <FranciscoD> asmartgoat: nah, no more booting now :)
04:24:35 <FranciscoD> now, the weird part was that most of these requests we receive are from areas where we have more than one ambassador residing
04:25:02 <FranciscoD> which made me think that folks aren't aware of the channels that they can get Fedora by, hence the draft
04:25:34 <FranciscoD> since there is no communication between the different channels, we can't redirect a request from one channel to another
04:26:01 <FranciscoD> which would make it easier for both users, and us distributors to give out fedora to *maximum* audience
04:26:12 <dramsey> Following the story...
04:26:20 <asmartgoat> i agree
04:26:36 <FranciscoD> That's pretty much all of it. I've gone ahead and created the draft.
04:27:08 <FranciscoD> It's not entirely public yet. I've only shown it to a limited audience and been tweaking it for a while.
04:27:23 <dramsey> Understood...alas the Rationale behind the priority order
04:27:30 <FranciscoD> So, I need feedback, comments, *more* hands on board
04:27:33 <asmartgoat> How about before asking for freemedia a 'please search this list to see if you have a ambassador in your region who may be willing to send you media'
04:27:33 <FranciscoD> dramsey: +1000
04:27:42 <asmartgoat> section
04:27:58 <dramsey> So you are putting Free media as the last option?  Do I understand the flow? https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Ankursinha/Fedora_Media_Distribution_Draft#Rationale_behind_the_priority_order
04:28:08 <asmartgoat> because nobody is going to look through a 765person long list
04:28:11 <FranciscoD> asmartgoat: yeah, something of the sort. The thing is, that not all Ambassadors are okay with getting individual media requests
04:28:43 <FranciscoD> dramsey: well, if one can get media from another channel, we could use free media for someone who *really* needs it
04:28:56 <tuanta> almost people in my country like downloading theirself
04:28:56 <FranciscoD> one without the bandwidth and other means of getting media
04:28:59 <asmartgoat> maybe a opt-in fas group called ambassadors-local-media, and then get the list from that
04:29:29 <FranciscoD> asmartgoat: Something like that would be ideal. I was thinking of just a wiki page where Ambassadors can add their names
04:29:56 <FranciscoD> less the work required by all the teams, better it is
04:29:57 <tuanta> they usually request a Free Media with a thought that they will have a nice official media :)
04:30:22 <FranciscoD> tuanta: nah, the free media page very clearly states that media is hand made and will probably not have labelling etc
04:30:26 <asmartgoat> but that was fixed with all the "you probably wont get nice offical media" branding
04:30:50 <FranciscoD> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Distribution/FreeMedia
04:30:51 <dramsey> Therefore the "Detailed description of channels" - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Ankursinha/Fedora_Media_Distribution_Draft#Detailed_description_of_channels
04:30:58 <tuanta> people sometimes do not read carefully :)
04:31:02 <dramsey> Good link FranciscoD
04:31:03 <FranciscoD> tuanta: it even has a pic now :P
04:31:13 <tuanta> exactly
04:31:20 <tuanta> :)
04:31:29 <tuanta> just about 5-10%
04:31:29 <FranciscoD> dramsey: Thanks :). As you can see, I already caught hold of some folks for feedback
04:32:06 <FranciscoD> .fas Yn1v
04:32:07 <zodbot> FranciscoD: yn1v 'Neville A. Cross' <nacross@gmail.com>
04:32:23 <FranciscoD> ^ is one of them I managed to bug enough :P
04:32:58 <dramsey> FranciscoD, ideas and/or actions to send to our list?
04:33:12 <FranciscoD> dramsey: That's the part where I need feedback
04:33:24 <FranciscoD> Is it concrete enough to send out in public and start a process?
04:33:27 <dramsey> May be Request Feedback from Ambassadors?
04:33:31 <asmartgoat> #idea get on board with FranciscoD's Fedora Media Distribution system
04:33:40 <asmartgoat> #action Post to the mailing list
04:33:41 <dramsey> +1 asmartgoat!
04:33:47 <dramsey> +1
04:33:53 <tuanta> +1
04:33:59 <dramsey> You read my mind!
04:34:01 <dramsey> :D
04:34:05 <asmartgoat> :D
04:34:07 <dramsey> Exactly
04:34:25 <dramsey> FranciscoD, I think we are in concurrence to support your ideas.
04:34:26 <asmartgoat> I think it sounds great
04:34:35 <asmartgoat> +all :D
04:34:43 <dramsey> Me, too!
04:34:53 <tuanta> +1
04:34:58 <dramsey> FranciscoD, e-mail the Fedora Ambassadors list, sound good?
04:35:04 <asmartgoat> Approach the freemedia mailing list and ambassadors list

04:35:59 <asmartgoat> k

04:36:34 <asmartgoat> hmm
04:36:38 <asmartgoat> anyone have anything
04:36:46 <asmartgoat> i reckon we made progress today
04:36:58 <asmartgoat> any may i ask why we have a meeting tommorow as well :P
04:37:02 <FranciscoD> from my past experiences, if the idea is not well formed enough, it undergoes discussion, feedback and *dies* :(
04:37:02 <FranciscoD> so if you folks think it's mature enough, let's go right ahead :)
04:37:02 <FranciscoD> zodbot: ping
04:37:02 <zodbot> pong
04:37:02 <asmartgoat> ?
04:37:07 <dramsey> Action begets progress
04:37:07 <tuanta> so much information today
04:37:23 <FranciscoD_> now my msgs come it, sucky thing
04:37:27 <dramsey> I am still on the hook for tomorrow...after my Akihabara adventure
04:37:41 <dramsey> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F14_release_events#APAC
04:37:41 <asmartgoat> hmm
04:37:49 <tuanta> +1 for "adventure" :)
04:37:53 <dramsey> http://www.e-akihabara.jp/en/
04:37:56 <asmartgoat> so david are you going to submitt the ticket for the APACK box?
04:38:42 * FranciscoD recalls some discussion about addition of the "fedora cube thing" to event boxes
04:38:47 <dramsey> I think azneita as your mentor should be contacted, I believe that will be best.  azneita has done these Trac tickets before.  I am truly clueless
04:38:58 <asmartgoat> ah
04:38:59 <asmartgoat> :)
04:39:04 <asmartgoat> alright
04:39:30 <asmartgoat> shall we close?
04:39:45 <FranciscoD> #halp
04:39:54 <asmartgoat> #help
04:39:55 <asmartgoat> :P
04:40:00 <dramsey> May be a review of the Marketing Collateral for the APACK box - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Marketing
04:40:10 <FranciscoD> #task FranciscoD mail ambassador's list regarding draft
04:40:20 <dramsey> Fedora Cheat Cubes - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Artwork/MarketingCollateral#Fedora_Cheat_Cubes
04:40:31 <FranciscoD> dramsey: yeah, that's the one I was referring to
04:40:33 <dramsey> +1 everyone!
04:40:37 <lcafiero> those are cool
04:40:41 <asmartgoat> ah, get a solid one :P
04:40:45 <dramsey> how true lcafiero!
04:40:50 <tuanta> I made a lot of cheat cubes for our release parties :)
04:41:03 <FranciscoD> awesome !
04:41:10 <dramsey> In English, Spanish, German...add your language!  :D
04:41:20 <asmartgoat> :D
04:41:26 <dramsey> Send the URL for the Fedora User!
04:41:33 <asmartgoat> swag should be independant of the APACK box tho
04:41:41 <asmartgoat> keep shipping costs down
04:41:54 <dramsey> Got it.  Support the Fedora Ambassadors with Swag!!!
04:41:55 <lcafiero> well, yes and no, asmartgoat
04:41:59 <asmartgoat> APACK box is the non-perishable
04:42:09 <dramsey> What is your thought, lcafiero.
04:42:16 <asmartgoat> and then the swag should be made seperately
04:42:23 <FranciscoD> +1
04:42:24 <asmartgoat> im all ears lcafiero
04:42:28 <dramsey> How do the North Americans do it?
04:42:43 <lcafiero> swag should be made available to all who need it, however the box -- when it goes to larger events -- needs to be stocked with swag as well.
04:42:49 <asmartgoat> they can send it easily
04:42:50 <lcafiero> It's two different things, really
04:42:52 <asmartgoat> we cant
04:43:14 <asmartgoat> it cost heaps to ship from country to country
04:43:25 <asmartgoat> its like shipping your box from usa to the uk
04:43:39 <lcafiero> Right. Which is why it should only be sent to large events where it's cost effective.
04:43:46 <asmartgoat> we cant afford to waste money sending swag around, it should be produced localy
04:43:47 <FranciscoD> can the largr regions have a box each? so shipping costs are minimum?
04:43:52 <lcafiero> For smaller events, you can send the event owner swag
04:44:02 <asmartgoat> yes'
04:44:06 <asmartgoat> i had a page...
04:44:16 <lcafiero> that he/she can distribute and if he/she has any left over, he/she can keep it for the next one
04:44:18 <dramsey> +1 lcafiero, this makes sense!
04:44:22 <FranciscoD> +1
04:44:33 <FranciscoD> asmartgoat: have we a timeline on the APACK box yet?
04:44:38 <lcafiero> NA has a lot of experience in this
04:44:41 * FranciscoD recalls foss.in is in December
04:44:41 <dramsey> +1 FranciscoD, asmartgoat has six APACK boxes in this Wiki...
04:44:44 <asmartgoat> nope not yet
04:44:47 <dramsey> +1 lcafiero
04:44:52 <FranciscoD> dramsey: awesome!
04:45:13 <dramsey> I like this discussion.
04:45:14 * lcafiero is the keeper of one of two NA event boxes
04:45:19 <asmartgoat> here...
04:45:20 <FranciscoD> we have foss.in here in Bangalore in mid december
04:45:22 <dramsey> Ah!
04:45:32 <FranciscoD> it's a *huge* event and yes, fedora will be represented :)
04:45:36 <dramsey> Sort of the spoke and hub concept in FedEx!
04:45:41 <FranciscoD> http://foss.in/
04:45:47 <asmartgoat> Philippines, Australia, Japan, India, Vietnam and one more???
04:45:56 <asmartgoat> thats where we are gonna try to get them to
04:45:56 <dramsey> I would put China
04:46:05 <asmartgoat> yeah
04:46:05 <tuanta> +1, David
04:46:08 <asmartgoat> alright
04:46:10 <dramsey> Kaio and Gbraad, what do you think?
04:46:19 <dramsey> Whoops, for them.
04:46:42 <dramsey> lcafiero, so a FedEx hub and spoke distribution, correct?
04:47:58 <dramsey> +1 everyone for your thoughts.  Other ideas or closure?x
04:48:12 <asmartgoat> i need to leave now
04:48:21 <tuanta> yes, end now
04:48:24 <FranciscoD> +1
04:48:31 <tuanta> great to see you today
