'ambassadors' group)
How many of those 282 ambassadors are based in the EMEA region?

associated to Distribution than the Ambassadors Program.


Linux Solutions at Paris
We are subscribed, we will have a booth

Chemnitzer LinuxTage 2008
Who is willing to hep me in Chemnitz? JensKuehnel will not go alone!
He have not ordered a booth. Want to help him there? Send him an Email


kanarip keeps his promises to translate "Gerold's version" into english
and sent it to him for checking
GeroldKa translated the "goales" into german and sent the letter to the
financial department to check out if the goals are good enough for the
german law to be confirmed as "allgemeinnützig" which is related to pay
taxes or not -> the answer is still standing

BartCouvreur ask for the statutes.  Everybody will get the opportunity
to see the translated version; but first we want to check out if THIS
version will match with the law of the country in which we will found
it; othwerwise it makes no sense to confrontate you with a version which
is not the value on the stamp with which it is send.

CLA has nothing to do with the NPO.  The statutes only describe the
how's, who's and what's of the organization itself. It sets rules for
the organization (e.g. the executive board) to have general members
meetings once a year, etc

JeroenVanMeeuwen have a huge chunk translated and he is starting the
last couple of notes, He hope to be able to send out a draft by the end
of the week, otherwise it'll be during the weekend. Motion to move the
item to the next meeting for another status update

Vote on the statutes on FOSDEM 2008 and maybe election of the board
there. Founding has to be a face-to-face meeting with the founder.
A minimum of seven and out of this crowed the board must be elected
there is no country limitaion where you found and which nationality the
persons must be.

The name will be Fedora EMEA -it has been agreed upon by mspevack
It aligns with another NPO initiative JeroenVanMeeuwen is involved with
in the USA, as well as with "Fedora Project" being the official project

Next meeting (so far)

2008-01-16 - 20.00 UTC
