Chapter 1. FAmSCo Activity


This section gives some quick health indicators about how much FAmSCo is communicating. Sometimes FAmSCo members can't make a meeting due to travel or conflict, but the combination of meeting attendance plus email is a nice metric.

1.1. Meetings

FAmSCo held 4 meetings in April. Attendance was excellent:
  • 4 out of 4 -- Joerg, Susmit, Maria
  • 3 out of 4 -- Rodrigo, David, Luca
  • 2 out of 4 -- Max
So far this year, FAmSCo has held 10 meetings. Overall attendance has been:
  • 14 out of 14 -- Joerg, Susmit
  • 12 out of 14 -- David
  • 11 out of 14 -- Maria
  • 10 out of 14 -- Rodrigo, Max, Luca

1.2. Regional Meetings

One of FAmSCo's goals this year is to make sure that at least one FAmSCo member is at each regional meeting that is held. As of the time this report was prepared, 6 regional meetings held in April had been logged.
  • NA -- 1 meeting, attended by Max and David.
  • EMEA -- 2 meetings, 2 attended by Joerg.
  • APAC -- 2 meeting, 2 attended by Susmit
  • LATAM -- 1 meeting, no FAmSCo members in attendance.

1.3. FAmSCo Mailing List

FAmSCo's mailing list received 32 messages this month, which was a pretty light month. We need to have more discussion on the mailing list.

1.4. General accomplishments or decisions


This section discusses the non-regional achievements within either FAmSCo or the larger Ambassadors project from this month.

1.5. Budget


The FAmSCo budget rolls up into the larger Community Architecture expenses . On that page, FAmSCo's budget is represented by the "Regional support" line item.
Based on the Community Architecture expenses, FAmSCo has about $25,000 USD to spend across the world for regional Fedora support from March 2010 - May 2010.
FAmSCo is recommending earmarking the money as follows:
Region Detailed breakdown Total Budget
  • $2,510 -- Support for FLISOL
  • $195 -- Swag for Mexico
  • $2400 -- Support for swag creation by Harish
  • $480 -- Support for BASIS
