It's not a dead tree, it's a resource bridge, with the founds given by
the associate members and with some of "FAmSCo budget" cover part of
the costs of EMEA big events.

Q4 will be the crucial step toward a working Fedora EMEA e.V., most of
the money needed by the EMEA people will be bridge by this one, having
a better "resource distribution" infrastructure in EMEA and improving
the ambassadors experience.

I hope to be concrete. If I said something not clear or maybe wrong,
feel free to add your toguths.

BTW, Fedora EMEA is still alive and will open completely its wings soon :)
