Re: [Ambassadors] Please REPLY to this mail (or you will be *removed* from the Ambassadors Country list.)


I am a Fedora Ambassador from the United States, Colorado area to be more specific.

So far my activities as Fedora Ambassador has been limited too:

1. Created several meetings with Colorado State University professors in both Computer Science and Electronics and Computer Engineering departments. The meetings were to first understand the usage requirements, next to explain how fedora quickens deployment via Spins, and creating a centralized repository to install from the network. The last part of the meeting was explaining the benefits of using open source CAD tools such as Magic-VLSI, gEDA and the many other tools. The next part was explaining the development tools bundled with Fedora.

2. Created powerpoint slides explaining the benefits of GNU/LInux and Fedora in corporate environment. These slides will be posted to my blog in the near future.

3. Currently in talks with my employer to have classes for businesses looking at using open-source in the workplace.

4. Got the ok to develop open-source applications without them being the companies right to my applications.

5. I have been reading the meetings in the IRC but have not stated my opinion much due to the latest project requiring the majority of my time.

Since I have a project deadline and I am debugging everything myself I have not much free time elsewhere. I will have more time beginning Monday March 8th, 2009.

My activities so far as


1.I was successful in converting projects running Suse/Debian to fedora at my workplace but unfortunately these systems IP dont get updated in Smolt as everything is behind proxy and receiving securiy updates and using latest versions of gnome or kde doesnt seem to be a big necssisty  Hence most of them run F9 and some of the projects use F8 and even F6 (due to customer requirements) . 

2. Have been part of the Fedora Free Media Program

3. i have done quite a lot of work in updating the wiki pages undert the Ambassador Section.

4. I have been in talks with my company to conduct some Workshops as install fests does not interest lot of them. Workshops would be more focused on how to contribute to an Open Source Project and the point of focus would be fedora.

5. I have been satisfying the DVD requests that i get from many people.

6. I interact with Susmit on quite a regular basis and help the community to share some of the work on wiki pages under ambassador section.

7. I have participated in ambassador meetings and have given my opinions and suggestions too. I am able to push fedora in my organization and use it in the workplace for telecom projects.


1. I have started to contribute to Packagekit

2. I write articles/HowTos to fedoraunity.org

3. I did some gardening work in the Wiki though i am not able to do it currently.

4. I would like to act as a mentor in fedora but am not sure the contact person for this.


Currently i am not in need of anything apart from the support from the community which i get when i need it :). I would like to continue my efforts.
