20:13:43 <jflory7> Hiya, ardian!
20:13:55 <jflory7> Oh, ardian, I have some specific announcements related to Ambassadors I could share
20:13:59 <jflory7> I know I missed them earlier
20:14:04 <FedoraUser> Release Event Funding Request Deadline - Fri 2016-05-20
20:14:04 <ardian> FedoraUser, yes thank you
20:14:11 <ardian> FedoraUser++

20:14:23 <ardian> #info Release Event Funding Request Deadline - Fri 2016-05-20
20:14:37 <ardian> jflory7, yes please
20:14:49 <jflory7> I have two things:
20:15:03 <jflory7> #info === "Fedora’s Love For Python Continues" ===
20:15:09 <jflory7> #link https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/fedoras-love-python-continues/
20:15:17 <jflory7> #info New brochures about Python in Fedora are available for Ambassadors and other interested groups. Feel free to take them and print some of your own!
20:15:26 <jflory7> #info === Fedora 24 talking points ===
20:15:29 <jflory7> #link https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/ambassadors@lists.fedoraproject.org/thread/DM3TGGDVWEAL423O44YB4P2SVLAFVAZI/
20:15:34 <jflory7> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_24_talking_points
20:15:55 <jflory7> #info Fedora 24 talking points are available! As per usual, the talking points for Fedora 24 are available on the wiki. They are not quite yet 100% finalized, but they are pretty much solid and accurate as far as the F24 Beta goes. These should be helpful for fielding questions about "what's new" in F24.
20:15:56 <jflory7> eof
20:16:02 <mhroncok> jflory7: is this final? it still has mistakes
20:16:32 <jflory7> mhroncok: I was going to bring it up in the Marketing meeting in another 45 minutes. I think the deadline for first print was missed, but I definitely want to get the changes in ASAP for future prints.
20:16:40 <nmilosev> jflory7++
20:16:46 <ardian> jflory7, thank you, I will give you some cookies but you will have to wait for f24
20:17:00 <jflory7> I need to follow up with bkp for his opinion on it. I should have a better answer for you in about another hour, mhroncok.
20:17:13 <JacobCZ> jflory7
20:17:17 <mhroncok> jflory7: thanks
20:17:18 <JacobCZ> sorry
20:17:21 <JacobCZ> jflory7++
20:17:28 <jflory7> Cheers, thanks! eof
20:17:49 <ardian> Okay if we are done with the Ambassadors Schedule we can move to the next topic.
20:18:29 <ardian> #topic Events
20:18:41 <ardian> Any events taking place in your country ? Would you like to report from any recent events?
20:18:48 <nmilosev> !
20:18:56 <ardian> nmilosev, yes
20:19:12 <nmilosev> Just a quick report on the last week event I talked about in our last meeting.
20:19:40 <nmilosev> It went great! I needed even more swag than I anticipated but it was very nice. A lot of people asking about Fedora.
20:19:47 <nmilosev> I wrote a report on my blog:
20:19:50 <nmilosev> #link https://nmilosev.svbtle.com/tarabica-2016-belgrade-conference
20:20:01 <nmilosev> So you can see some pictures and read all about it.
20:20:06 <nmilosev> eof :)

20:20:36 <ardian> wow looks great
20:21:38 <ardian> I am very curios to know, what people thought about the DVDs, and what's your point of view, are people still asking for DVDs ?
20:21:47 <sesivany> .fas eischmann
20:21:47 <zodbot> sesivany: eischmann 'Jiri Eischmann' <eischmann@redhat.com>
20:21:51 <sesivany> sorry for being late
20:22:09 <nmilosev> I thought I would give DVDs for questions, however in the end I gave them all to the audience
20:22:17 <nmilosev> I had some stickers and badges too
20:22:17 * ardian o/ sesivany
20:22:25 <nmilosev> People really liked them
20:22:49 <nmilosev> I don't think anyone there ever saw "original" distro DVD :)
20:23:22 <jflory7> ardian: From a North America perspective, it depends on the age range. For university crowds, I received very mixed responses to optical media and lots of requests for USBs (but all allocated DVD media was taken regardless). At events with a wider range of ages, I've seen them well-received by as many people who ask for USBs.
20:23:46 <ardian> nmilosev, awesome, we also have a presentation template for slides, with fedora branded, not that you are obligated to use that ofc.
20:23:53 <nmilosev> I didn't have USB requests, but some came afterwards to ask if I had more DVDs for their friends etc
20:24:13 <nmilosev> Yeah, I was however obliged to use the template provided by the conference organization
20:24:24 <nmilosev> But I didn't know we have a template
20:24:29 <nmilosev> I will look into it
20:24:44 <ardian> jflory7, interesting, we still use DVDs here, I think in most Balkans countries at least.
20:24:50 <pkwesihanson> .fas edgates
20:24:50 <zodbot> pkwesihanson: edgates 'Elijah Hanson' <pkwesihanson@yahoo.com>
20:25:29 <nmilosev> ardian: any news regarding EuroPython 2016?
20:25:33 <ardian> nmilosev, cool, if you can't find it, I can send you the link after the meeting.
20:25:34 <jflory7> We use them in NA too, we haven't ever tried USBs in mass because of the cost. And it's tough to measure the cost to impact.
20:25:45 <nmilosev> ardian: yes, that would be nice
20:25:58 <ardian> jflory7, yep I understand
20:26:12 <sesivany> nmilosev: yes
20:26:29 <sesivany> nmilosev: ardian cannot go, so looks like it's your turn.
20:26:42 <ardian> nmilosev, yes, It's very hard for me to get in Spain apparently.
20:27:10 <nmilosev> ardian: visa?
20:27:11 * mhroncok has a student ticket and is not going to use it
20:27:46 <sesivany> mcyprian should be an event owner now.
20:27:53 <ardian> nmilosev, yep, they don't accept my passport.
20:28:03 <sesivany> nmilosev: get in touch with him and make a plan (tickets, accommodation, budget,...).
20:28:05 <nmilosev> ardian: well that sucks :(
20:28:16 <ardian> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EuroPython2016
20:28:37 <ardian> this is the wiki page I created, please edit it.
20:28:44 <sesivany> nmilosev: and as mhroncok says he can pass his student ticket to you.
20:29:15 <nmilosev> sesivany: I will write emails tomorrow
20:29:25 <ardian> Also please open a budget ticket, and write your costs asap.
20:29:46 <nmilosev> ardian: Ok, I will have it by the end of the week I think
20:30:21 <ardian> nmilosev, and also check the information from jflory7 regarding Python and Fedora
20:30:43 <mhroncok> I also hava an marketing idea for EuroPython
20:30:56 <nmilosev> ardian: Sure!
20:31:10 <mhroncok> that would require to buy some cool prices for a contest :)
20:31:12 <sesivany> and we've got fliers for python developers!
20:31:19 <sesivany> right, jflory7? ;)
20:31:34 <nmilosev> Oh I saw them, I'm also on the marketing list :)
20:31:35 <jflory7> Yep, absolutely! :)
20:31:45 <ardian> mhroncok, great, I think the marketing meeting is in 30min jflory7 ?
20:31:49 <jflory7> Yep, sure is.
20:31:53 <jflory7> #fedora-meeting-1
20:32:10 <ardian> awesome!!
20:32:25 <nmilosev> Just one more thing, about the Belgrade event, I'm sorry
20:32:32 <ardian> nmilosev, yes?
20:32:49 <nmilosev> I think for the next year event, I should write a wiki so more presenters are aware
20:33:12 <nmilosev> At least from the area
20:33:28 <nmilosev> I know it's not an open-source event, but still many people knew about Fedora
20:33:34 <ardian> nmilosev, yes that would be great, you can also post in the mailing list
20:33:57 <nmilosev> Yes, of course
20:34:34 <ardian> cool, let's move to the next topic
20:34:49 <ardian> #topic Action items from previous meetings
