(09:07:48 PM) ***fugolini is searching for the right wiki link to give
(09:08:23 PM) spevack: before we jump right into this, i think we
should say welcome to our new famsco members, and talk about some of
the things that Famsco is currently responsible for, that need to be
continued, and then some of the things that Ambassadors have told us
they would like Famsco to be more active on
(09:08:45 PM) fugolini: Yes, I was going to do this :)
(09:09:01 PM) spevack: fugolini: ok, go ahead :)
(09:09:23 PM) fugolini: have you finished?
(09:10:07 PM) spevack: if you are going to talk about it, then I have
finished, yes.  EOF
(09:10:20 PM) fugolini: feel free to finish
(09:10:31 PM) spevack: ok
(09:11:09 PM) fugolini: sorry but I've a terrible cold ... forgive me
if I'm interrupting you
(09:11:17 PM) spevack: well, the two big things that Famsco has been
doing are the membership verificatio -- which I prefer to call
Mentoring and Training of new Ambassadors -- and I think that we need
to focus on that process -- not only the technical work that kital has
started, but the softer side of training people on how to be goo
Fedora Ambassadors
(09:11:42 PM) spevack: I did a Fedora Classroom session on that a
while back, and I will do more.
(09:11:42 PM) spevack: the technical work that kital has done is fantastic
(09:11:43 PM) spevack: and i thank him for it.
(09:11:43 PM) onekopaka: isn't this websites?
(09:11:56 PM) spevack: no, this is the fedora ambassadors meeting onekopaka :)
(09:12:00 PM) onekopaka: no wonder.
(09:12:06 PM) spevack: onekopaka: :)
(09:12:16 PM) kital: thanks spevack ;)
(09:12:24 PM) ***onekopaka sighs
(09:12:28 PM) onekopaka left the room.
(09:12:35 PM) spevack: i think we need to make sure that we also
provide proper resources that teach people how to organize events, how
to do public speaking, how to speak about a specific message, etc.
(09:12:35 PM) Zool^ [n=kaland 19 81-166-29 customer lyse net] entered the room.
(09:12:49 PM) spevack: also the other big thing we do in famsco is
manage the budget for ambassadors and global events
(09:13:04 PM) spevack: which has a lot of sharing with Red Hat's
Community Architecture budget, and therefore the overall budget for
(09:13:13 PM) spevack: the place where i think there is room to continue to grow
(09:13:21 PM) spevack: is in solidifying the processes across
different parts of the world
(09:13:27 PM) spevack: and making sure that things don't diverge too wildly
(09:13:32 PM) spevack: what one region figures out and optimizesa
(09:13:36 PM) spevack: neeeds to be shared
(09:13:42 PM) spevack: we want local leadership and authority
(09:13:45 PM) spevack: but we don't want silos
(09:13:55 PM) spevack: famsco also must be the clearing-house for
worldwide activity
(09:14:15 PM) spevack: I am personally very keen on the expanded
"Fedora Activity Day" idea for this coming year, and I think FAMSCO
can be very active in helping to make that successful worldwide.

(09:17:03 PM) spevack: fugolini: i don't know about how the

(09:19:17 PM) petreu| [n=peter p3EE3F14D dip t-dialin net] entered the room.

create some groups
(09:19:33 PM) fugolini: *tasks
(09:19:47 PM) fugolini: like it was in the first/second FAmSCos
(09:19:56 PM) spevack: susmit: let's give you the fedorahosted action
item, and i'll take the FAD action item, since it's up to me to
explain further that vision.
(09:20:13 PM) susmit: thanks
(09:20:19 PM) spevack: fugolini: yeah, we need to break down the main
goals and tasks, and ensure that they each have an owner
(09:20:27 PM) spevack: and the famsco chair needs to be responsible
for making sure things happen
(09:20:31 PM) spevack: and that new tasks are added as needed

(09:20:50 PM) kital: +1
(09:21:45 PM) fugolini: So, FAmSCo Chair election?
(09:22:01 PM) spevack: sure.
(09:22:09 PM) spevack: how does it work?
(09:22:49 PM) fugolini: spevack: we could used self-nomination,
nomination system
(09:22:54 PM) spevack: if he wants to do it again, I nominate
francesco.  if he wants to not be the chair this year, i understand
that also.  but i think he did a great job and deserves a nomination.

(09:23:08 PM) kital: +1 <- he did a great job
(09:23:08 PM) susmit: +1

ambassadors/contibutors in this FAmSCo (and in the past FAmSCos too),

than me, I'm asking you to tell me
(09:25:12 PM) spevack: it's not even about that.
(09:25:28 PM) kital: i think we should proceed with the good direction
we have with your leadership
(09:25:29 PM) spevack: if there is someone else who would like to
nominate themselves or nominate someone else for the leadership role,
then speak up pleaes
Sparks spevack spoleeba spot spstarr_work

(09:25:45 PM) spevack: there are plenty of leadership opportunities in
famsco for everyone
(09:25:54 PM) spevack: it doesn't matter what we call ourselves.
(09:26:20 PM) spevack: .
(09:26:21 PM) spevack: .
(09:26:22 PM) spevack: .
(09:26:24 PM) fugolini: spevack, kital both of you demonstrates great
leadership in Ambassadors, so
(09:26:41 PM) spevack: fugolini, do you accept what seems to be a
unanimous nomination for another year as famsco chair?
(09:26:41 PM) ***kital thinks fugolini is simple the best choice
(09:26:54 PM) ***MrTom agrees
Sparks spevack spoleeba spot spstarr_work

(09:29:11 PM) balor [n=balor gimili plus com] entered the room.
(09:29:18 PM) spevack: ok, what else must we discuss today?  i think
this meeting is used to sort out the logistics of the new famsco.
(09:29:26 PM) spevack: and then we get to work on the mailing list and
in future meetings
(09:29:27 PM) fugolini: spevack: Meeting schedule
(09:29:31 PM) spevack: is everyone in famsco on the mailing list?
Sparks spevack spoleeba spot spstarr_work
(09:29:39 PM) spevack: has the mailing list been updated with the
current membership?
(09:29:42 PM) fugolini: spevack: I added all the people
(09:29:47 PM) spevack: great
(09:29:52 PM) spevack: ok, meeting schedule then.
(09:29:52 PM) fugolini: both in M-l and in FAS

stickster StillBob
(09:30:16 PM) fugolini: stickster: ok
(09:30:19 PM) fugolini: :)
(09:30:33 PM) fugolini: I think we have to figure out a possible
meeting time that could work for everyone
(09:31:18 PM) ***stickster happy to see fugolini continuing as the FAMSCo chair.
(09:31:22 PM) fugolini: expecially because this time FAmSCo members
are living in the most different time zones
stickster StillBob
(09:31:36 PM) spevack: what is the furthest west and furthest east
time zone we deal with?
(09:31:44 PM) fugolini:
(09:31:45 PM) spevack: susmit is furthest east...
(09:31:48 PM) stickster: fugolini: I'm pretty sure the Board will be
unanimous in its support too :-)
(09:31:53 PM) spevack: is brazil or US east coast further west?
(09:31:58 PM) ke4qqq: I think I am the first west
(09:31:58 PM) ajax: dang, seems you can't go straight from f7+ to f11
(09:32:01 PM) ke4qqq: furthest
stickster StillBob
(09:32:12 PM) spevack: ajax: it's worth a try though :)
(09:32:14 PM) fugolini: stickster: thank you, so
(09:32:15 PM) dgilmore: spevack: brasil is further east
(09:32:16 PM) spevack: ajax: blame seth
(09:32:39 PM) stickster: fugolini: It's nice to see the new FAMSCo
sees all the hard work you helped lead previously
(09:32:54 PM) spevack: ok, so the spread is 9 hours
(09:33:11 PM) fugolini: a big leap
(09:33:22 PM) spevack: well, i guess fugolini wants to use the little
table matrix to try to sort this out?
(09:33:39 PM) fugolini: yep
(09:34:07 PM) fugolini: if everyone agree
(09:34:37 PM) spevack:  sure, people just need to fill it in by
wednesday so we can figure out a meeting time to start next week.
(09:34:41 PM) fugolini: I think it's important to have all of you, not
because there are hard discussion, but it's the only place to share
(09:34:49 PM) fugolini: *simultaniously
(09:35:07 PM) spevack:
Sparks spevack spoleeba spot spstarr_work

(09:35:25 PM) fugolini: spevack: absolutely !
Sparks spevack spoleeba spot spstarr_work
(09:36:50 PM) fugolini: so another important point spevack pointed was
how many times we will meet: weekly, monthly ....
(09:36:53 PM) fugolini: ?
(09:37:10 PM) fugolini: I think it will help to have a better idea on
the calendar too.

(09:37:13 PM) fugolini: MrTom:
(09:37:39 PM) spevack: fugolini: may i share my thoughts?
(09:37:41 PM) MrTom: well as lots of meeting were canceled last year
(one out of two approximately)
(09:37:56 PM) MrTom: I thinkg we should continue to have a weekly pace meeting
(09:37:58 PM) fugolini: spevack: yes, it's a pleasure to hear you
(09:38:00 PM) MrTom: eof
(09:38:16 PM) fugolini: MrTom: thanks
(09:38:33 PM) spevack: I think we should have weekly meetings for the
time being, and try to focus each week on one of the specific tasks
that we are working on -- one or two -- instead of all of them.
depending on what is most important.
(09:39:01 PM) spevack: but with new energy
(09:39:04 PM) spevack: and some new people
(09:39:06 PM) spevack: and new priorities
(09:39:12 PM) fugolini: good point, it's an interesting perspective
(09:39:18 PM) spevack: i think we will have enough to fill the time.
(09:39:20 PM) spevack: it was embarassing to me that famsco meetings
were cancelled last year
(09:39:24 PM) spevack: i want us to do better this year
