02:40:25 <azneita> #topic Report current Status of upcoming events
02:40:30 <bckurera> Page says no news from FAmSCo
02:41:06 <dramsey> true bckurera, only if someone has some good stuff to say.

02:42:34 <azneita> #info Biweekly Akihabara with F14 - bckurera
02:42:56 <azneita> #info Restarting fedora-my meetups in KL - Kagesenshi
02:43:00 <KageSenshi> just a small gathering .. though i'm planning it to be sprint-like .. which we try to fix stuff which bugging us ..
02:43:12 <dramsey> Cool guys!
02:43:21 <dramsey> Do we need stuff?
02:43:26 <azneita> #info 2010 Events for Sri Lanka, done - bckurera
02:43:34 <asmartgoat> shirts for LCA
02:43:51 <bckurera> I think still F14 media not ready right?
02:44:13 <asmartgoat> last i heard, it'll be ready janurary.
02:44:14 <dramsey> #idea, Fedora 14 media is available
02:44:26 <dramsey> asmartgoat, do you know by who?
02:44:31 <asmartgoat> harish
02:44:44 <bckurera> dramsey who is the person handling those?
02:45:05 <azneita> bckurera: harish
02:45:21 <bckurera> ahhh the same one as before :)
02:45:49 <dramsey> +1 azneita
02:45:51 <azneita> he's not here at the moment but i'm sure he's reading the logs
02:46:05 <azneita> in any case let's tackle our events first
02:46:13 <azneita> #topic Linux.Conf.Au - Jan 24-29
02:46:15 <dramsey> +1 azneita, we should have everyone use up the Fedora 13 Live media, too...what does everyone think?
02:46:21 <dramsey> +1 LCA
02:46:37 <asmartgoat> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LCA_2011
02:46:45 <azneita> the event page is here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LCA_2011
02:46:54 <bckurera> dramsey +1, need to finish F13 first
02:47:20 <asmartgoat> #info Asmartgoat, Azneita and Izhar are pending funding.
02:48:11 <azneita> with regards to F13, I believe we need to dispense them asap
02:48:35 <dramsey> Izhar, too, that's news!  I heard, Kaio
02:48:38 <azneita> do we have figures as to how many?
02:48:42 <dramsey> +1 azneita
02:48:45 <KageSenshi> :D
02:48:58 <dramsey> #idea, inquire with Harish on remaining Fedora 13 media
02:49:10 <dramsey> KageSenshi, interested in LCA?
02:49:14 <asmartgoat> we should produce some media for LCA
02:49:22 <dramsey> We are thinking
02:49:25 <KageSenshi> yep
02:49:33 <dramsey> True asmartgoat...
02:49:54 <dramsey> There could be the remaining Fedora 13 media, too...what do you think?
02:50:03 <dramsey> Just in case..
02:50:14 <dramsey> in order to make it in time
02:50:16 <bckurera> better finish delivering F13 and then switch to F14
02:50:19 <azneita> if there are available, let's bring them
02:50:26 <dramsey> true
02:50:27 <dramsey> true
02:50:27 <KageSenshi> at here theres no remaining .. not sure if at harish
02:50:29 <bckurera> but in the event F14 should be delivered
02:50:50 <dramsey> thank you, KageSenshi
02:51:00 <dramsey> good ideas, azneita and bckurera
02:51:40 <azneita> we could probably bundle F13 and F14 and just let the user choose
02:51:57 <asmartgoat> what do you mean by 'bundle'
02:52:00 <bckurera> most ppl go for the latest
02:52:05 <asmartgoat> the user will choose 14,
02:52:09 <KageSenshi> bundle as in give em together ..
02:52:18 <asmartgoat> whats the point?
02:52:24 <asmartgoat> its just a waste
02:52:29 <asmartgoat> because the user will only ever use one
02:52:35 <bckurera> azneita it is waste of media
02:52:39 <dramsey> From what I remember, the current Fedora 13 Live has a great selection of openoffice as well as other software in the set.
02:52:44 <azneita> so we can move the inventory
02:53:03 <azneita> it's going to be disposed of anyway
02:53:23 <bckurera> Fisrt thing we need real data, whether F13 is over or not from Harish
02:53:25 <azneita> users will probably be happier with two than just one
02:53:32 <dramsey> If we have Fedora 13 in case, the Fedora 14 is not produced. This will be to our advantage.
02:53:47 <azneita> it's just happening this time, we're going to avoid it in the future
02:54:01 <azneita> +1 dramsey
02:54:02 <bckurera> Making users by giving media is not the fedora way azneita
02:54:02 <asmartgoat> i'm going to email cheryn from red hat to see if they've got media / plans.
02:54:03 <dramsey> Will there be USB key production capability at LCA?
02:54:15 <asmartgoat> Yes, dramsey
02:54:21 <dramsey> great idea, asmartgoat
02:54:32 <dramsey> Other needs for LCA?
02:54:43 <asmartgoat> our FAD
02:54:47 <dramsey> Is there a list?
02:54:52 <dramsey> +1 FAd
02:55:00 <dramsey> s/d/D
02:55:06 <azneita> heres for the FAD: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAD_@_Brisbane_2011
02:55:18 <asmartgoat> we need to calaborate with redhat for needs, otherwise we will double up or worse, miss things!
02:55:26 <azneita> true
02:55:28 <dramsey> true
02:55:29 <KageSenshi> yep
02:55:45 <azneita> btw guys, we need to divide responsibilities for LCA
02:55:51 <azneita> specially for those coming
02:55:52 <dramsey> with the FAmSCo elections, this adds some complexity, too
02:56:00 <dramsey> +1 azneita
02:56:06 <bckurera> good to hear dramsey
02:56:31 <dramsey> azneita, should this be added to the Wiki?
02:56:40 <dramsey> As well as support during the LCA/FAD?
02:56:42 <azneita> dramsey: yep
02:57:11 <azneita> the difficult part right now is procuring funding
02:57:29 <dramsey> True!
02:57:36 <azneita> we have only one guy local - that's kaio
02:57:45 <asmartgoat> we have red hat too
02:57:47 <dramsey> I think that funding will drive the capabilities...
02:57:52 <azneita> and everybody is flying in there
02:58:31 <azneita> well redhat will always be there, but it's different
02:59:26 <dramsey> Unfortunately, with the FAmSCo elections, this adds to the complexity and subtracts from the success/support.  Give it your best and follow up on the actions.  That is important.  What do you all think?
02:59:51 <azneita> we'll take whatever we get :)
02:59:58 <dramsey> True azneita on Red Hat at LCA.
03:00:05 <dramsey> My best to you all for the APAC FAD
03:00:05 <azneita> but let's plan ahead anyhow :)
03:00:13 <dramsey> True...
03:00:25 <dramsey> We need a champion!
03:00:30 <dramsey> Continue forward.
03:00:33 <bckurera> #idea planning is the sucess of the event
03:00:35 <KageSenshi> yep :)
03:00:39 <dramsey> yep
03:00:43 <azneita> so far, asmartgoat and kaio are in the best positions for LCA
03:00:51 <dramsey> +1
03:01:03 <asmartgoat> maybe we should request funding as a whole
03:01:08 <bckurera> shall we move to other events
03:01:10 <asmartgoat> not individualy
03:01:20 <asmartgoat> ah, alas its too late now
03:01:33 <azneita> yep, the timing is not ideal
03:01:43 <bckurera> then we can learn things for the next event
03:01:50 <azneita> elections and holidays coming up
03:01:57 <dramsey> true guys!
03:02:06 <asmartgoat> moving on?
03:02:13 <dramsey> I am ready!
03:02:18 <dramsey> Others?
03:02:29 <azneita> some parting shot

03:17:10 <azneita> #idea APAC polo shirts
03:17:35 <asmartgoat> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/ButtonUp
03:17:45 <asmartgoat> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/PoloShirt
03:18:20 <bckurera> is there anyplans for something?
03:18:23 <asmartgoat> custom shirts are expensive in australia about $20 each
03:18:34 <dramsey> Cool guys!
03:18:56 <azneita> who wants to sperhead this project?
03:19:22 <dramsey> I have a vendor for shirts, so shop around.
03:19:38 <azneita> do we have a taker?
03:19:41 <dramsey> I think that producers outside of U.S., are more reasonable?
03:19:42 <azneita> :D
03:19:43 <asmartgoat> azneita how much are custom shirts around your parts?
03:19:50 <dramsey> asmartgoat, my question
03:19:52 <bckurera> I can get the project if you all like
03:19:56 <azneita> i haven't checkd yet
03:20:03 <dramsey> please, try bckurera
03:20:04 <bckurera> here in Sri lanka we can go for beow $10
03:20:05 <azneita> but i'll give input to project leader
03:20:21 <dramsey> I hope that we do some great stuff, guys
03:20:40 <asmartgoat> hmm wait a sec. i remember reading a blog post about a recent event with shirts that costed ~$5 each
03:20:46 <dramsey> Let us do some compare shopping and pricing...choices allows management for decision.
03:20:59 <azneita> +1
03:20:59 <dramsey> Wow asmartgoat, that is very reasonable.
03:21:01 <dramsey> +1
03:21:27 <arifiauo> Shirts price around $7 in Indonesia
03:21:27 <bckurera> polo shirts OR polo tshirts?
03:21:34 <KageSenshi> +1
03:22:09 <bckurera> both looks professional Tshirts are easy in events anyway
03:22:12 <dramsey> Excellent!
03:22:17 <KageSenshi> here would be around 7-9usd depend on quality
03:22:50 <dramsey> Guys, this is great conversation.  Do you think a photo/image would help in our purchase?  Ideas...
03:22:59 <dramsey> Research that is.
03:23:06 <asmartgoat> http://pierros.papadeas.gr/?p=177
03:23:19 <asmartgoat> scroll down
03:23:21 <asmartgoat> to shirts
03:23:34 <dramsey> For example, dramsey gets Fedora Ambassador Polo Shirt for $25...not good for APAC...
03:23:40 <dramsey> excellent asmartgoat
03:24:19 <asmartgoat> looks like tuan can get them for ~$3 US
03:24:22 * azneita wonders why asmartgoat is so fast with links :)
03:24:27 <KageSenshi> haha
03:24:37 * asmartgoat is a links ninja!
03:24:56 <azneita> which makes dramsey a samurai
03:25:17 <bckurera> $3 price is ok
03:25:17 <dramsey> hahaha
03:25:21 <azneita> asmartgoat: that's for a t-shirt
03:25:31 <dramsey> $3 should be a go for price and image is known.
03:25:32 <bckurera> collar-less
03:25:37 <KageSenshi> dramsey is more of a warlord :P
03:25:46 <dramsey> #idea Inquire tuanta 'tuan' on where the goodies are....
03:25:52 <dramsey> hahaha
03:25:56 <azneita> warlord :)
03:26:15 <asmartgoat> maybe some slightly more expensive shirts from same place?
03:26:28 <azneita> bckurera: still up to the task as shirt project leader
03:26:42 <azneita> we'll support you with inputs
03:26:58 <bckurera> should we prepare a plan?
03:27:05 <azneita> we just need you to put up a wiki page or something
03:27:18 <azneita> but you have to "own" the project
03:27:33 <bckurera> ok i ll do it azneita
03:27:35 <azneita> and see to it that it happens, is that ok?
03:27:39 <dramsey> Sounds like research guys, this is great!
03:27:39 <azneita> great!
03:27:45 <dramsey> +1+1+1
03:27:49 <dramsey> 3?
03:27:55 <dramsey> muhahaha
03:28:00 <azneita> is that your shirt size?
03:28:07 <dramsey> hahaha
03:28:09 <azneita> :)
03:28:14 <KageSenshi> >.<
03:28:35 <bckurera> We ll need some designns first
03:28:47 <azneita> in any case, we'll all support bckurera with the project by providing input
03:28:48 <lcafiero> NA has some t-shirt designs
03:28:50 <dramsey> There is the Fedora Logo
03:28:51 <bckurera> I think it is good for going to Poplo Tshirts
03:28:58 <lcafiero> You may not want to reinvent the wheel
03:28:59 <asmartgoat> #idea inquire with art-team about APAC fedora shirts
03:29:00 <dramsey> Empower lcafiero, it is good right?
03:29:18 <dramsey> We are doing great guys, let us move forward!  Good conversation.
03:29:20 <asmartgoat> can we have something that we'd be proud to wear out to the shops, less of a uniform
03:29:22 <bckurera> I ll start a wiki and post all soon to the Mlist
03:29:33 <azneita> great
03:29:41 <asmartgoat> you know what i mean, like "i (8) my desktop
03:29:49 <asmartgoat> (8) = fedora symbol
03:30:03 <azneita> asmartgoat: anything for apack box?
03:30:03 <bckurera> APAC Ambassadors
03:30:09 <bckurera> it should be there right
03:30:09 <bckurera> :)
03:30:14 <asmartgoat> can i change topic
03:30:22 <azneita> go ahead
03:30:31 <asmartgoat> #topic APACK Box - APAC meeting
03:30:32 <bckurera> ok then Tshirt project confirmed
03:30:49 <azneita> thanks bckurera
03:30:55 <asmartgoat> alright
03:31:08 <bckurera> is this the tight topic?
03:31:08 <asmartgoat> i have heard nothing from art team and
03:31:23 <asmartgoat> i've heard nothing from laptop.org
03:31:48 <asmartgoat> i've sent them two emails with no responce... i'm not exactly sure what to do
03:31:56 <dramsey> What was issue at art team, asmartgoat?
03:32:00 <dramsey> I think/remember that the Fedora Logo has it's "We must do this..." information...
03:32:19 <asmartgoat> for the four F's poster, but thats not the problem
03:32:30 <asmartgoat> its laptop.org, they've gone silent lol
03:32:49 <azneita> i second that
03:32:50 <dramsey> Hmmh.
03:32:52 <dramsey> bckurera, here's a link on the 4 F's Logo Usage - http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Logo/UsageGuidelines
03:33:47 <azneita> what's our alternative recourse for XOs?
03:33:54 <bckurera> thanks dramsey
03:34:10 <KageSenshi> a netbook with sugar as default ? :)
03:34:41 <azneita> is that good enough asmartgoat?
03:35:03 <asmartgoat> we are having an OLPC display at LCA. so not exactly... :(
03:35:09 <asmartgoat> i think they have one olpc
03:35:18 <asmartgoat> and lcafiero i think has one we can borrow
03:35:20 <azneita> for apack boxes boss
03:36:19 * azneita looks at clock 03:30UTC
03:36:45 <dramsey> Guys, I recollect something from spevack regarding $250 from the Fedora Ambassadors' mailing list...
03:37:13 <azneita> $250 for what?
03:37:19 <dramsey> I think this is in spevack's thought processing for approvals...let us double check...
03:37:34 <dramsey> azneita, need to see the e-mail again...
03:38:04 <lcafiero> On the OLPC -- If you can't get the foundation to give you one, I can give you the one that should go to the Canada event box
03:38:27 <lcafiero> It will be easier to get one here than for you to get one there, asmartgoat, in my opinion.
03:38:35 <azneita> ah, discretion amount?
03:38:53 <asmartgoat> im having trouble, im going to wait a week for a reply... but then i dont know what to do
03:39:12 <azneita> lcafiero, we're actually thinking of getting six XOs
03:39:36 <dramsey> Thank you, lcafiero
03:39:54 <KageSenshi> cool
03:40:11 <dramsey> #idea continue efforts for OLPC with lcafiero in order to provide OLPC for LCA
03:40:15 <dramsey> What do you guys think?
03:40:39 <azneita> i think lcafiero's offer is great, we just have five more units to go :)
03:41:07 <lcafiero> the XO I am sending is for the event box, but use it as you see fit.
03:41:20 <asmartgoat> have you made contact with OLPC phillipines
03:41:26 <asmartgoat> azneita?
03:41:27 <dramsey> Again, many appreciative thank yous, lcafiero!
03:41:36 <asmartgoat> yes lcafiero
03:41:40 <asmartgoat> thanks
03:41:56 <azneita> olpc phils, still no dice
03:42:05 <dramsey> azneita, need to resurface the spevack e-mail to the Fedora Ambassador's mailing list, there was something about $250 support lines....

03:45:55 <azneita> and we can do 2011 planning and stuff
03:46:30 <azneita> but moreover, we can get to learn people we only know by nicks and email addresses
