if i don't understand about this big fuss of "Ambassador" ? I see for
years Fedora is running better and better not only the Fedora Core OS
but as the whole in community.
So, with this, problem solved. Everything it's "just fine". Despite the
fact this is the longest thread I saw until now on this mailing list
(apart from the useless "me too").
If we can't agree on a solution to the problem it doesn't mean the
problem isn't there! Let's just stick out heads on the sand. "Fedora
it's going great!" There is no such thing of Ubuntu (it seems to be
tabu to talk about this), there is no such thing as 40% of the
registered ambassadors (this is almost 1 in 2 of them!) inactive. The
activity of the rest of them consists mainly on asking in vain "what
can I do?". I'm sorry but it doesn't seems to me that things are ok at
We have every week a few new ambassadors registred. This is really a
good thing. But how many of them will end up being real contributors?
If we continue like this, we'll have next year 2000 ambassadors (wich
looks great on paper) and the next survey will prove that 90% of them
are inactive. We might as well create 10000 fictive accounts on Fedora
ambassadors list and be proud of our "strenght".
I whant to know that this thread will be closed in N days and the
decisions are XYand Z. Whatever decisions will come up it will be
better that ignoring the problem.
What Fedora can do is just trigger email to the Ambassadors, those
responded, classified them as Active Ambassadors and make them listed
in Fedora Ambassadors page so to like others to contact them. For those
whom do not reply with in a month, KIV them to Ambassador KIV group,
make them hidden to End User but not Ambassasors, but purge them off
after half year of no reply.
Then improve it along the way, rather then keep going on in the mailing
list and no action per say. India had did a good job on start the
mailing list out to all ambassadors in India to screen for active and
inactive ambassadors. So, may be Fedora Ambassadors steering committee,
Susmit, as a mentor for the APAC region can assist in getting it done
like wise in India ?And in Region EMEA, they got "2. Ambassadors
Membership Verification (Joerg)" may be APAC can learn from them, Just
another 2cts worth.
