Max,

I'm including the Fedora Ambassadors List because at one time we were
going to have a FAD along side SCaLE and it can probably still happen.
 It's a little later than Feb 13 (Feb 20-22) but it's still in Q4.  I
think Larry Cafiero was interested in making this happen so I wanted
to see what the possibilities were of making that happen.  One thought
is to do it on Feb 20 (the Friday) as there are special sessions going
on and not general sessions.

Thoughts?

Clint
