Fedora Store Special Interest Group
The Store SIG (Special Interest Group) is a group of Fedora contributors working to create a turnkey swag solution for the Fedora Project.
- Making it easier for Ambassadors and event organizers to get swag in bulk, for a good price, and for reasonable shipping charges.
- Making it easy for users who just want one or two items to get them, again without crazy shipping fees.
- Making it as easy and automated as possible for designers to create new products.
- Not having to do any physical distribution or order processing ourselves.
- Providing an international service.
- Being transparent regarding money.
