Francesco starts by announcing the meeting agenda :
1) Budget
2) Current Tasks Review

1. Budget
Max Spevack is at the helm of Budget for Q4 which ends tomorrow (13th
Feb.). Some people maliciously uses the TRAC system to deal with budget
requests which means that the message to use this new system is on its
way. It will help Max a lot though. Max is also working on buying a CD
duplicator for the LATAM community, at the request of Rodrigo Padula.
Max is also dealing with sponsoring SouthEast LinuxFest Fedora people.
The planning for Q1 is to be done next week. The RedHat budget for Q1
for ambassadors should be known very soon. Max highlights the way local
leaders make managing budget easier.

2. Current Task Review
## Task Ambassadors Administration
A git repo has been set up by the well known Fabian Affolter which will
be used to maintain the script used to manage Ambassadors' accounts.
Joerg Simon also specifies that TRAC system is also to be used to manage
Ambassadors' registeration.

## Task Mentoring
The first mentoring meeting welcomed 3 people only. A new one is to be
organized in the next Sunday.

## Hungary and Rumanian investments
Thanks to Max, we will send Jeroen van Meeuwen to Romania for the
eLiberatica event. Dimitriz Glezos also agreed to attend a Translation
Marathon in Kyrgysztan, where there is no native translation of any
Operating system. Fedora will be the first translated one. 
About Hungary, we will have a event in Szeged later this year. The
budget is still being discussed with Max. Joerg Simon also adds that
there is no Hungarian ambassador, and one in Kyrgyzstan (mirlan)

## Release Parties
Francesco is starting this task by the will to contact local leaders to
ping FAMSCo as much as possible about their needs on organizing a
Release Event. Rodrigo Padula is organizing the agenda for LATAM and
the Release Event is going to be discussed soon. Thomas Canniot adds he
will take care of it as well, and look at the needs in small Fedorian
Communities in Africa and North America for a start, on the good
advises of Francesco Fugolini, Joerg Simon and David Nalley. Moreover,
Rodrigo Padula would like to help in Africa as well, as some countries
speaks Portuguese. Rodrigo pointed out that there are ways of improving
the sending of CD to these countries.

Francesco decided to adjourn the meeting once everyone were full

Thanks for reading and see you next week!

Your Dear FAmSCo.
