[Ambassadors] Re: Need to do something about Freemedia India.



Thank you Susmith, thank you Siddharth. "Blank media and return envelop" idea is good. We can make a decision if we make us available for a meeting in near future at fedora-india irc. A long gap  when we do not arrange a meeting. And I also have some topic to discuss regarding some fedora training program at schools. I have already started some initiative regarding this but I like to discuss the matter with other Indian ambassadors. So please fix up a date for a meeting so that we can made it more prominent.

Cheers
Gopal Das

The Most obvious problem is contribution... we have very less active
India Ambassadors and there appears no real solution in near future...
as it is initiated.. to send a blank media  .. should be an option not
a requirement (my view) ..

as i see it we first need a saparate freemedia request form where we
can put proper information and restrictions.. i can work like this :
1. in the last week of every month we (India Ambassadors) decide on
freemedia capacity
2. when the form open the decided number of requests are allowed .
3. when the limit is reached .. the users are given option to send a
blank media with return envelop to get the Fedora Media

Siddharth
