Fedora print magazine proposal from Linux Pro Magazine



Marketing! Logistics! Documentation! News! Design! Ambassadors! (If I've missed a group that should know about this, please forward it on and let me know.)

Linux Pro Magazine (LPM) has proposed to make a special Fedora print issue for F12 - thousands of magazines out on newsstands internationally with an F12 DVD tucked inside. This would be very, very cool. We're trying to figure out whether this is possible, whether we should do it, and (if both of those are "yes"), how the balance of work would be distributed between the Fedora community (perhaps with help from the Red Hat Brand team) and LPM.

We'd love your thoughts and feedback. This is moving quite rapidly (it first came up on Wednesday afternoon; we need to give a yes or no for F12 next week), so I've summarized the current state of things on a project page at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_print_magazine. We would particularly love your ideas for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_print_magazine#Contribution_balance.

Rikki Kite from LPM is being absolutely awesome about transparency for this entire process, has made a version of the proposal for public consumption (it's all the information that we have, minus financials and circulation numbers): https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_print_magazine_proposal.

If you have any questions, please add them to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_print_magazine#Questions - myself, Max Spevack, Karsten Wade, and David Nalley will be calling Rikki and the folks at LPM tomorrow (Friday), so that'll be a first chance (definitely not the last!) to get some of these questions answered.

PS: One of the most surprising things I've learned in the last 24 hours is that the good folks down in LATAM are already doing a Fedora magazine - see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_print_magazine#Of_Magazine_work_done_by_the_Fedora_community. Ambassadors *rock.*
