Francesco starts by announcing the meeting agenda :

2) Inactive Ambassadors
3) Budget
4) Defining a SOP for FreeMedia program

1) Current Tasks Review
1.5 Moving from Joerg application to TRAC to verify membership.
The task has not been started yet, as the process needs to be explained
by Joerg very deeply to Susmit. From Susmit POV, all FAmSCo related
task should go to FAmSCo.

1.6 Ambassadors Membership Administration
Joerg will use FAS as the basis for country list sorting to locate
Ambassadors. Max pointed out that some people may not be sharing their
country. He also adds that it is a good opportunity to ask people to
keep their FAS information up to date and to remind them about our
privacy options.

1.7 FAD
FAD at SCALe was a good event from Max's POV.

There were also good reports from Indian Ambassadors. 4 of them are now
in various Fedora Project and active contributors.

1.8 Release Parties
Francsco is waiting from all the release workflow to stabilize and look
at what both Artwork and Marketing teams are doing to get the release

1.13 Ambassadors Mentoring
Max will do another Fedora Classroom session about how to be a good

3) Budget
Max informed FAmSCo that Q4 spending is 95% finalized.
He also started Q1 planning with the NA ambassadors regional leaders.
The LATAM budget is also going to be determined very soon with Rodrigo
and his boss.

Fugolini suggested it would be nice to invite regional leaders to join
FAmSCo meeting and discuss directly with them. The idea was welcomed by

Susmit also added it would require budget to achieve some Fedora plan
he has in his school.

4) Defining a SOP for FreeMedia program
Susmit recall how the FreeMedia program was managed by Thomas Chung.
Now thanks to the new infrastructure we are moving to, we have to
clearly define a Standard Operating procedure: when to open the request
form and when to close it. Susmit suggested to open it on the 2st of
each month and close it few days afters. At the end of the months, it
suggests to close all the pending requests.

The meeting is adjourned.
