11:25:08 <kaio> 2. I would rephrase that into "Upgrade the
ambassadors to superambassadors." - multi-functional ambassadors
who specialize also in something they prefer: Development, Design, Documentation,
Infrastructure, Testing, Marketing,
Release, etc. I expect superambassadors are keen to share their knowledge and experiences
via presentations and
discussions in meet-ups.
I am not sure what this suggestion means. Does it mean making a higher
"level" of ambassador membership? Taking this back to front, don't
ambassadors already "share their knowledge and experience via presentations
and discussions in meet-ups"? My understanding is that many Ambassadors wear
several hats in the Fedora Project (no pun intended -- no, really) -- and
while we all contribute to the Ambassador program at our own level, it's
expected thatt $AMBASSADOR_A who knows x, y, z is already imparting that
knowledge at presentations, etc., s/he is doing.
I was not proposing an extra level of ambassador membership. I was talking
about the ambassadors who joined the Ambassadors group without much
Fedora/Linux backgrounds. We see many Fedora contributors become
ambassadors, and I also want to see if we could help those who started from
the opposite way (Join as ambassadors -> contributors in another team).
There are people who likes FOSS/Fedora and wants to promote it, as users.
In other words, the multifunction aspect here is already in place and
should be a part of an individual Ambassador's toolkit when s/he advocates
for FOSS in general and Fedora in particular.
Again, if this is a suggestion to make a different, possibly higher, tier
of ambassador, I am completely against it.
No. I am also completely against it. No way for more tiers of ambassador
