Me fellow ambassadors,
it is time to request the budget and a PO for the EMEA F17 media.
|| Release || Media || PO || Used || Ticket ||
|| F14 || 6000 || USD 5000 || || #91 ||
|| F15 || 5000 || USD 5000 || 3876 EUR || #157 ||
|| F16 || 4000 || 4000 EUR || 2448 EUR || #218 ||
1. We did less and less media throughout the last years
2. I think we have reached the minimum. Jiri only has very few
media left and we still have some more events left in the F16
cycle. And we could have spent more media on some events. AT CLT
we were out of Multi Desktop DVDs and at IDLELO we did not have
3. In the F14 cycle we had 1000 media reserved for Africa and I
think we should do this again.
4. In the F15 we had 1000 media reserved for Red Hat Czech. I think
they want to do this again.
5. We managed to dramatically cut the costs by producing in Czech
and placing one big order together with Red Hat. Shipping from
the RH office has also been extremely comfortable so I think we
should go for the Czech vendor again.
The release should be the 15th of May. Our big release party in France
is the 2nd of June.
If we could make it, fine. If not, coud we try to have a local
production? I could come back with a budget request soon (I am waiting
for the reply to take action).
In an other side, we could also see for the general EMEA production
here in france, as proposed for last release. Price was quite the same
as for the Czech vendor (but the vendor was shipping directly to
several location, that would be faster). Quote needed, or we don't
check and stay with last vendor?
1. How much media do we need? Go up to 5000 again?
Please, could we include a fixed amount, predefined for the French
community? We don't need installation media, people only want Live
If we still do the multi desktop/arch one, that would be great. At
least 700 would do it (we have our huge Solution Linux the 19-21th of
June). If not, Live x86_64 only.
I would remind you also that our default download option is now x86_64
(we are going to have less 32b requests).
