Just a note about Ambassadors and activity in India.

Kushal has already mentioned that there are many people who are active in upstream projects from India. I agree that there has been a decline in the sound that we used to create. Major reason of that would be that we all have spread in last couple of years. Ankur has moved to Australia, Suchakra to Canada, Arun to USA and I am out in Mumbai (almost no contributors and events are held in Mumbai). Still all of us are quite active in our respective area of contribution to Fedora in general and spreading the word whenever we get any opportunity. 

I refrain from taking budget from Fedora because my employer sponsors most of my domestic travel to conferences and gatherings. It makes more sense to take money from a for-profit organisation. Of course there are catches to that funding but still it helps everyone, me, my employer and Fedora. 

That said, there is always a scope of improvement and if anyone has suggestions, I am sure all of the Indian ambassadors and contributors would be happy to listen and improve.

PS: I would be present at Rootconf, Bangalore (most probably). If someone wants to catch up, I will be available.
