I was initially refused entry to this list by Alex.
Because I didn't have my name on the list on the wiki. (Well, I did. But
that's beside the point).
How do I get my name on that list?
I need EditGroup access on the wiki.
How do I do that?
I need to create an account on the account system, and sign the agreement.
How do I do that?
With a lot of pain, and playing with my GPG key.
It is *NOT* easy to get to this list.
(Note: Alex also removed me from this list after I left the Ambassadors.
Refusing me comment on the future of Ambassadors, which I obviously am
I've made a press release to send to press at Wednesday 15, it is in
italian i resume the content here:
A new, and more advance, distribution of Fedora is released today,
it's based on Linux and it's the most advance distribution that is
avaiable in this moment.
Tha feautures are:
Packet with same functionality are inserted in the Extras.
A new packet manager with a better integration with Anaconda and Pup
Better integration with SELinux
Better driver campatibility
Better start and close speed
Suspension mode for laptop.
More cripted filesystem.
Much other things ( in the text i've write etc...)
After three years of works Fedora is became a sure alternative to
commercial OS, that are full of viruses. Fedora is free and
OpenSource and it has alternative software to commercial ones, such
as OpenOffice, Firefox, Gimp etc .... it is developed by volounteer
that everyday work to improove the system and make it up to date.
This is all
I've made a new banner, changing the visual layout and the
"background" words' font (now it's Tahoma). As it is possible to see
i'm continuing to use the same concept of other banners. However i'm
working on new banner based on some feedback that i've received.
You can find the new beta5 in this page: http://fedoraproject.org/
I have created a simple web template for fedora promotional campaign. As per
our previous discussions i have uploaded the document on a web server rather
than attaching it :) . The link is
We can change the lines and even the whole template, just provide me u r
views about it.

After 4 months in the ambassador project I have several questions and
also some opinions. I will answer my own questions so you know where I
am coming from.
Why are we ambassadors?
I am an ambassador so I can better present Fedora to groups of people
through Slides and structured content.
Do small events count?
I do not think our current format lends itself to discussing general
ideas of bringing Fedora to the masses. I get the feeling that our
leadership is of the opinion that large high profile events are the ones
that count. Everything else is just filler.
Should ambassadors be members of the marketing list?
I think they should. Many ideas that have been posted to the PRIVATE
Ambassadors list should have been posted to the PUBLIC Marketing list
for greater input.
What should the ambassadors project and list focus on?
They should focus on supporting Ambassadors and events no matter how
Where did the Ambassadors project come from?
For more information on this you will have to look at the Oct 2005
archives of the marketing list.
What happened to the Marketing project?
It would seem that leadership lost focus, the Ambassadors project was
created from this lack of focus as a subproject and the general
marketing project was allowed to die.
Why is the Ambassadors list private?
The Ambassadors list was made private as I remember to prevent people
from signing up just to get free stuff and promo items.
What can we do to make things better?
I think we need to re-ignite the Marketing project as the driving force
of Fedora Marketing. Bring Marketing Tasks back in to the Public view,
part of this will be to Focus the Ambassadors project on supporting
Ambassadors in getting to events and related items including giveaway
"stuff" and keep Marketing in the marketing list.
I am sure more will come from me later, this will be plenty to talk
about for now. If anyone has the guts to that is.
