Budget Max Spevack is at the helm of Budget for Q4 which ends tomorrow (13th Feb.). Some people maliciously uses the TRAC system to deal with budget requests which means that the message to use this new system is on its way. It will help Max a lot though. Max is also working on buying a CD duplicator for the LATAM community, at the request of Rodrigo Padula. Max is also dealing with sponsoring SouthEast LinuxFest Fedora people. The planning for Q1 is to be done next week. The RedHat budget for Q1 for ambassadors should be known very soon. Max highlights the way local leaders make managing budget easier. 2. Current Task Review ## Task Ambassadors Administration A git repo has been set up by the well known Fabian Affolter which will be used to maintain the script used to manage Ambassadors' accounts. Joerg Simon also specifies that TRAC system is also to be used to manage Ambassadors' registeration. ## Task Mentoring The first mentoring meeting welcomed 3 people only. A new one is to be organized in the next Sunday. ## Hungary and Rumanian investments Thanks to Max, we will send Jeroen van Meeuwen to Romania for the eLiberatica event. Dimitriz Glezos also agreed to attend a Translation Marathon in Kyrgysztan, where there is no native translation of any Operating system. Fedora will be the first translated one. About Hungary, we will have a event in Szeged later this year. The budget is still being discussed with Max. Joerg Simon also adds that there is no Hungarian ambassador, and one in Kyrgyzstan (mirlan) ## Release Parties Francesco is starting this task by the will to contact local leaders to ping FAMSCo as much as possible about their needs on organizing a Release Event. Rodrigo Padula is organizing the agenda for LATAM and the Release Event is going to be discussed soon. Thomas Canniot adds he will take care of it as well, and look at the needs in small Fedorian Communities in Africa and North America for a start, on the good advises of Francesco Fugolini, Joerg Simon and David Nalley.
