Hmm... the age-old method of asking students and alumni by passing
around the hat does not work ? If I recall well, NITH did a good round
of that for their a.out event.

You might like to ask Venkatesh Hariharan (venky at redhat dot com) who
heads the Open Source Affairs at Red Hat. I don't know if Venky is on
this list.

Do you have any notional figures about how many Fedora media would be
required to be created ?

Unless someone is willing to pay on his own to reach Pilani for this, it
is highly unlikely that you will elicit interest given that you have not
posted any Call for Papers, Theme of the event etc.

| communication is held on the internal forums etc.

*That* is one of the worst possible ways to handle a LUG
