* A "general" Fedora tshirt, to replace the one we have now that is just the Fedora logo on the front. This will be our "main" swag item for, say, the next year.

Could there be a women's sized version of this as well as a men's sized? Even a men's cut only would be okay if it was available in small. If any tshirt had both I think it should be this one since it is so basic?

Absolutely.

Will the tshirts be produced centrally and shipped out, or will separate locales be producing them locally? Perhaps if we go with some kind of slogan we can provide the source artwork for everything and make it such that it is easy to replace the text with a more appropriate slogan for that locale.

Can't say for sure, but I *hope* it can be done in a way that we can hand the graphics to companies in different regions, and produce locally.

So we could have the same general "concept", but have the text be translated or something for different regions.

* a tshirt for FUDCon at the Red Hat Summit in Boston, June 2008, for everyone who shows up.

A few questions on this one:

* Are there any sponsors that have to be listed on this shirt?
* Does this need to have any Red Hat Summit logos or messaging on it or can it be just FUDCon centric?

No sponsors, other than Red Hat, but we don't have to put shadowman on the shirt unless we want to.

If the designers want to make it related somehow to the RH Summit theme, that's fine (I'm not sure that the theme has been decided yet). It could also be totally independent.

- do we know what kind of outfits the summit folks are doing for the show workers if any? I remember one year at linux world we did red hat baseball jerseys, and one year at the summit there were red hat cowboy/rodeo shirts - it might be cool to have a shirt that complements the summit outfits. e.g., if the summit was doing red hat baseball jerseys, we could do fedora tshirts that were styled to look like 'fedora' team baseball shirts

I don't think that stuff has been decided yet, but once it is, it would be a good idea to at least think about some sort of tie-in.

* a tshirt for Fedora @ LinuxTag (biggest linux show in europe) in Berlin, May 2008, for the people in the booth and also as a giveaway.

Similar question here, are there sponsors that have to be listed on the shirt?

Nope.

Is LinuxTag very commercial or is it developer-centric or a mix? Trying to get a feel of what kind of show it is... do we want a shirt that is specific to the event (seems to be appropriate for developer-centric conferences) or do we want a more generic/re-usable Fedora shirt (seems more appropriate for more commercial or user-centric conferences).

I found it to be very user/developer-centric. Last year our Fedora booth was right in there with Ubuntu, openSUSE, debian, gnome, kde, etc. etc.

I think that if we had a shirt specific for that event that our booth staff was wearing and that we were raffling off or selling, it would go over very well.

Thanks, it's a good idea, earlier is always better :)

Hope this helps!  Thanks so much...
