Can't say for sure, but I *hope* it can be done in a way that we can 
hand the graphics to companies in different regions, and produce 

So we could have the same general "concept", but have the text be 
translated or something for different regions.

No sponsors, other than Red Hat, but we don't have to put shadowman on 
the shirt unless we want to.

If the designers want to make it related somehow to the RH Summit theme, 
that's fine (I'm not sure that the theme has been decided yet).  It 
could also be totally independent.

I don't think that stuff has been decided yet, but once it is, it would 
be a good idea to at least think about some sort of tie-in.

I found it to be very user/developer-centric.  Last year our Fedora 
booth was right in there with Ubuntu, openSUSE, debian, gnome, kde, etc. 

I think that if we had a shirt specific for that event that our booth 
staff was wearing and that we were raffling off or selling, it would go 
over very well.

Hope this helps!  Thanks so much...
