Magnum Opus Event Report

Last week, I was to magnum opus, the tech fest of BHU, Varanasi.

The report is here.

Just to add to this, there was people mostly from computer science, so had a lot of queries about coding, fedorahosted, upstream/downstream development, I use ubuntu, why should I code for Fedora, can we do GSoC with Fedora, mirroring, server setup and others.

They are a bunch of smart guys and girls. I would particularly thank Dhushyanth, who organised it nicely and helped us a lot. I expect to get a few new faces from there soon.

Also we are discussing about setting up a Fedora mirror at BHU.

Started the initial house keeping for Indian Ambassadors.
Every Indian Ambassador should get this ping mail from me.
Please reply to the mail.

In case you haven’t received it for some reason, please let me know.

I shall be sending an ACK mail to all who has responded by 5th March.

A lot of proposals for mirror setup from all over India.
They are (1) NIT Agartala, Tripura, (2) BITS Mesra, Ranchi (3) IT-BHU, Varanasi (4)NIT Durgapur, West Bengal.
Next week, I am going to hold a IRC classroom on mirroring.

I mentored two girls on fedora-websites.
They are Ankita and Garima from Jaypee Institute of Information Technology University, Noida.

They responded to my mail in fedora india.

Good news is, they have been sponsored in the fedora-web group yesterday.
I am happy. 🙂

I also expect to mentor a few more people very soon.

1. The new freemedia process has been cleared by both Infrastructure Team and the FAmSco.

I shall send it to the Board right now. A new SOP has been approved by FAmSCo yesterday and will appear here.

The tickets will be available here.

2.I am working on opengroupware to evaluate it for our infrastructure. It is a messy thing. But a tentative solution for our long pending calendaring system.

I shall be away for next two days.
