We have lot of requests asking the membership of the Fedora Ambassador (FAm) team. Since it is not possible to accept each and every request and due to other limitations, few get the chance.
I believe it is good to have place where those returning individuals/ newbies can gather under an official credential. May be they can continue their contribution and apply again for the Ambassador membership with experience later. Before applying for FAm, the experience as a member of this team would be valuable and if anyone is new to Fedora this would be a place to learn about the Fedora way.
Fedora Ambassadors should support them providing necessary knowledge, goodies (including funding) and most importantly making sure that the Fedora brand is properly used.
most importantly this group will support individuals who need to join with Fedora as people persons but no much time to dedicate as Ambassadors. Lets assume they are not good in technical matters and only they want is to keep in touch and promote Fedora in public when there is an opportunity. Since we dont have a team to cater such requirements we are loosing them. Therefore I think it is quite important to get them in.
Not only those who new to Fedora but also FAms are required to run the team. Providing support and supervision should be the key role of those FAms. Some FAms will find this would be the ideal place to train the next generation of FAm locally. Event the interested individuals will be much motivated since there is a official credential.
FAm are not limited to a region, city and they are wider. As a result communication issues matter. In such situation individuals with less communication skills in English will miss the opportunity of becoming an FAm. If we have such a group they can be apart of that and continue their work locally. Most importantly they are getting the credential as well.
I would eagerly waiting for your ideas, comments, please feel free !!!
