Hello to all.

In LATAM that help could really help a LOT. I think people who should receive that help must be:

Nicaragua - Argentina - Colombia

They could send us some to the rest of countries that truly need this and might be cheaper.

Also, if we, Fedora LATAM folks, could help doing some paypal donation so we could receive a little more, just tell us what we have to do. I think that if we al LATAM put a litte effort could get a great amount. (if each of ambassadors donate 5 us$ or 10us$... wow)



Thanks for this awesome help.

:)

Hi all,

In the Fedora Ambassadors NA meeting tonight, we were talking about producing more case badges, which look like this:

   http://myweb.cableone.net/dthomas/fedora/fcasebadges.jpg

They are beautiful (IMHO) and the picture doesn't do it justice.  What looks gray in the picture is really silver, and quite shiny.

Due to the price points around producing these, it would make the most sense to produce a HUGE amount of badges (5,000 or more even) and shipping them to key folks around the world.

>From a budget point of view, we'd simply share the cost across regions,
when we do the Q4 budget calculations.

An example of the budget calculations in previous quarters:

So, I guess the question is -- do folks in EMEA, LATAM, India, and Asia have use for some of these?  Should we go ahead with this plan?

Thanks,
Max

Max,

I would even happily pay for some of those case badges. And as Red Hat is a bit iffy,c about people paying for stuff, because of tax reasons (or whatever). Why not order more, and at least for EMEA, if people donate
a small amount, they get sent a number of free case badges.


Regards,
Tristan

Maria,

we all had those ideas for FEDORA EMEA, legally a club, but then Red Hat says, it could appear to US tax authorities, who have no jurisdiction in Germany (as the club is based there), that this is an official Red Hat entity, so then it was kind of implied we would have to change it's name. Then about selling stuff, they don't want to sell goods, I guess it is too much hassle for them. And we as the community cant make much of a fuss, as they donate thousands! And the Fedora board has to grant the privilege to make and sell goods, which for Fedora EMEA, they did (apparently). It is all a bit of a pain in the back side. You might find some discussions with regards to this all, in the meetings logs of the EMEA meetings. All I can say is, this is frustrating for everyone. I sent this message just to you, just so you know, what went on before. So brace yourself for problems, if you want to pursue this topic further. I personally hope you will, maybe somebody at Red Hat will listen.

Good luck and all the best.

Regards,
Tristan
