It is great to know that you have taken the onus of organizing a Fedora
event at Manipur. I recall that the Linux-Manipur group keeps on
organizing regular events. Would it be possible for you to check up with
them ? The reason I suggest this is that it would lead to a coupling of
forces and provide you with the existing contacts to organize a Fedora
10 release party perhaps.

A release party is generally a whole lot of fun since you get to meet
new people, help each other resolve niggling issues while installation
and configuration and have a great time within the group.

If waiting for Fedora 10 release seems too long, you can take up
September 20th (Software Freedom Day) and organize a meetup with the
agenda of:

+ talk about Free and Open Source Software
+ introducing participants to Fedora
+ handing out Fedora 9 media
+ talking a bit about how to participate and contribute to Fedora

If you require any kind of support please feel free to drop into
