Hello dear Fedora Ambassadors,
During the last couple of weeks, the Fedora Marketing  group has done
some serious internal reorganization, most of which you probably don't
care about very much right now ;)
One important thing to notice is the apparition of something called the
"News Distribution Network" . This is where we need you, the
The News Distribution Network is a joint effort between the marketing
group and the ambassador group to effectively push Fedora news to the
media. As you can see on , we are currently searching 2-3 people for
each of the following languages:
* English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Hindi and Italian
Your role will be to help us spread news. If you read the whole page
, it should be pretty clear what we expect from you :)
If you are interested, feel free to contact me so we can discuss your
candidature during the next IRC marketing meeting next Tuesday.
Have a nice day
Steven Moix - Fedora marketing group
How will the cyber cafe owners earn? A blank CD costs Rs.12 while a DVD costs Rs.15. It would be wise to provide medias at the same rate or else nobody would buy at a higher price.

Thanks, yes i do admit that this is having a slow rate of growth. But it will be steady. Our basic objective is to make Fedora available for all. I think it is beneficial for cybercafe owners too. They will be earning by burning CDs/DVDs and they too will be selling blank CDs/DVDs, event in that there is profit for them.
I think of convinced properly we can make these people to distribute Fedora media.
Moreover my main concern is that is burning and selling CDs/DVDs compleatly legal accross countries ?

nice idea... i will try this with the cyber cafe owners nearby my region
but the cafe owner will get bored if there is no frequent customers for him.
