On Feb2007 i was able to see Thomas presentation on Fosdem and i was impressed - what all of you achieved. There was a strong presence of French ambassadors and after i signalized that i am interessted in there work, i had a great time with kind and communicative people. I am sure you know what is the best to achieve your goals in your country. Please don´t forget the world who need your results. Example: googled metisse & fedora - the really needfull articles only in french > As an association, we will be able to collect and share some ressources, > and have a _legal existence_. I had really bad conflicts with Gerold about a Legal Entity - i hate bureaucracy and my opinion is that Fedora Project should not have borders - i don´t like´d the idea to found a german LegalEntity. In the other way i proposed the EMEA Leadership in DEC2006 and now i see this could not established without legal status in Europe. > Fedora-FR aims to ease and leverage French > ambassadors work and organizing meetings between users. > Human contacts are a better way to promote Fedora rather than mailing-lists > and irc. Like i say, think about a liason officer who is able to share with us - i am glad to see Thomas in Rheinfelden. > We're as eager as you to set up an EMEA structure lead by Fedora > Ambassadors, but it cannot replace local user groups and vice-versa.

There is a EMEA Structure and the success we had in this Year to have Fudcon on Fosdem and LT2007 with Alan Cox and other familiar Names - the official launch of Fedora 7 on LT 2007 by Max ... this was happen without a legal entity, because of work that have to be done. Ask yourself why you doing this? - For me is fun!
