why it is important for fedora ?

There will be people from different user groups from all Central America. There shuld be people from user lug, but also from communities like word press, mozilla and such. My objective is to try to understand the different schedules and agendas of different central american countries. We don't have ambassadors listed on Costa Rica, ambassadors on Honduras and Guatemala are not active. Knowing what are the activities in other countries we can plan ahead to participate in their activities to bring awareness about fedora and possible get some contributors.
