|the week that was

It's been a few days since I blogged, so I thought I'd share details of a few of the things that I worked on this week:
As always keeping up to date with the Community Architecture budget, which is important for everyone on Planet Fedora because aside from Fedora Infrastructure, pretty much the entire Fedora budget is a subset of the Community Architecture budget. Next week, I need to spend some time getting the Fedora EMEA e.V. budget updated, and making some proposals for the Fedora EMEA community to consider about how we want to spend the money that is currently in the hands of that non-profit entity.
We're ramping up the preparations for FUDCon Brno 2008. Radek Vokal, one of the Red Hat engineering managers in Brno, is helping me to secure a location. As soon as we have a location nailed down, I'll give the "all clear" for folks to start making their travel arrangements. One of the things I will be doing this week is working on an official invitation for Red Hat's engineers in both Stuttgart and Brno, as well as some documentation and examples of the BarCamp format.
I'm working with Thomas Canniot to figure out a day in the near future that we can bring the Ambassadors and leaders of the Fedora France community together for a planning session.
Finally, I'm working with Greg and the rest of the Community Architecture team on a larger strategy for engaging with educational institutions, partners, and independent software vendors in the Fedora and EPEL space.
Monday - Thursday of this week will be pretty standard for me, but on Friday I will be traveling to the UK. I'll be at LUG Radio Live UK this weekend. On Saturday at 11:00 AM, I'll be delivering something that will sound a lot like Community Architecture for Fun & Profit.
