FAD EMEA 2009 – First Half

After a smooth ride to Rheinfleden (air-plane-train) on Friday, I ended up in Gerold’s house with the other Fedora EMEA team and Max (visiting us from USA). We had a night talk on next day’s agenda and some minor things and then we were dragged into a conversation on legal issues for using Fedora logo and name regionally. Gerold’s wife was kind enough to cook us dinner (a wonderful local pizza-like thing :O ) !

Later night, we ended up in the castle, in witch we will sleep the next two days (kinda creepy :P ).

In the morning we were woke up by¬† the castle’s chapel bells ringing for 4 minutes! After a quick breakfast we ended up at Gerold’s living room once again and the sessions started!

We discussed on what and how we need things from Red Hat (especially on shipping etc) and then it was my time to present the Greek Community and the Fedora Coffee event proposal. This will be an easily-organised minor news-update event (I said it in a phrase!) organised by a local Ambassador. More updates to come on this topic after next Friday (the first Demo Fedora Coffee in Athens). Then Joerg informed us on mentoring ambassadors processes and updates on this subject, just before the coffee-break happening just about now :)

More on the rest FAD EMEA 2009 tomorrow! Meanwhile feel free to join us in #fedora-fad @ Freenode :)
