Distribution

Once DVDs are printed and available, they may be requested by local ambassadors directly indicating the quantity they need. By default, about 1/3 of the DVDs were shipped to the Red Hat Bangalore office via Red Hat channels. A similar number were sent to the Singapore Red Hat office for F21 and F22. For F21, we shipped them; and for F22, Harish carried them back from FUDCon Pune. We also shipped some F22 DVDs to the Red Hat Beijing office. Currently Connor YAN is the contact in Red Hat Beijing office to handle DVDs.

All these shipments were done internally in Red Hat. This needs approval of the internal management teams since they are different departments. Rupali is the contact in Pune to arrange for shipping.
