Henrik Re the point: "* Provide a wiki page that contains paid-for support and services for CentOS" I would also highlight http://centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=12 as this is another area to promote commercial support. At LinuxIT we offer commercial support for CentOS from business hours to fully managed. We would welcome the opportunity to have details of our offerings and our logo on centos.org and on the wiki, especially if we could put something back into the community. Since September last year we have been trying to engage with Lance Davis to open up the commercial support offerings at centos.org - so far zero progress. My last mail to Lance, nearly two weeks ago - no response. So, if you do open this up on the wiki please get in touch we would like to be top of the list.

Selfmade shops are expensive in costs and time to administer it... * Provide a wiki page that contains paid-for support and services for CentOS Question: Who are the Supporters? How many people are in the Crew? * Create a CentOS Weekly News that summarizes BLOG articles, events, progress, etc... idea: could the blog used to improve the idea? Because of archiving articles and redirect from the Newsletter...?! * Create and maintain pages about how to install CentOS on your laptop additional: Install CentOS under VMWare. Any comments ;-) ? cheers Henrik _______________________________________________ CentOS-promo mailing list CentOS-promo at centos.org http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-promo -- This message has been scanned for viruses and dangerous content by MailScanner, and is believed to be clean.
