Since last week, I ll be managing the Fedora Free Media Group membership management tasks. Therefore think of writing a short intro and guide to newbies through Fedora Free Media group. This would be helpful to individuals who would like to join with the Free media group.
Fedora Free Media group consists with a set of volunteers who ship/ post Fedora Media to interested individuals all over the world.
The requests for media should/ can be made via the Free Media request form and no bulk orders are allowed or processed. Members of the group will respond to the requests and most of the time local members will fulfill the requests. There is a high demand for media, as a result it may take few days to process the request.
It is easy to join with the group as well. But there are few very important points to bare mind.
- No media will be supplied from the Fedora project.
- No funding will be provided from the Fedora project to cover the expenses.
- Create a FAS account.
- Apply for the Free media FAS group via the Fedora account System.
- Subscribe to the freemedia mailing list.
- Create a User Page on fedoraproject.org/wiki including your contact details and country clearly.
