"Re: [Ambassadors] Fedora Ambassadors Africa" ??
Yes, ... what about them?
If you were concerned why didn't you step up??
If you were conscious of my coming "towards the end",guess what,we
waited for peeps like you who were at those meetings to take the mantle
when Joerg sent that mail since you were "at the begining" and move
things for Africa..and what happened??...Nothing..for how long??One
clear month(06/17/2010 02:08 PM). Check your mails again to confirm
In view of your meeting experience,If you want to chair and drive this
initiative of kickstarting the growth of Fedora Africa its all yours :)
I was of the impression that you are more experienced. That position
seems to favour you ... this is not about "who wants to be chair?". I
was only addressing a statement that i believe be insensitive.
I still stick to what I said before "Fedora for Africans by
Its our thing and its our time. That's my opinion.
Cool. Lets get on with it like gentlemen then ... that is, with due
respect to the non-african contributors and initiators.
Until we own the 'burning desire' to win and to build a
African Core..we will remain where we are(41 Africa contributors only).
As Sascha said in his last mail on that thread with Joerg
"what I think is;
- bootstrapping a region is not done in 4 meetings nor is it done in one
and maybe you didn't know or might have forgotten, Africa is
one of Joerg's focus. I suggest we "step up" and ask for assistance when
Cool. As we do that, we should employ some diplomacy.
We can do this, Yes We Can, We Can Grow Fedora in Africa and I
it..so you better start believing in the vision, rather than nurture
fear and doubts ;)
Wow! ... a little more diplomacy. The last phrase was not necessary --
our goals are same (approach may be different).
Okay. I thought it would be nice if you finished what you started. That
is why I suggested the website (of course, I could have done it myself
... as a matter of fact, I have started doing it myself). I'll be
sending you and others the URL for your inputs and see where we arrive.
Okay,let's do this.
- mmm... Fastmail...
- Or how I learned to stop worrying and
love email again
