Thank you Rajesh and Jeffrey and All for your support and encouragement. I will
definitely continue to be a very vocal and "in-person" Ambassador for Fedora

I agree with *Casey *about the activeness. Though some of the
Ambassadors seem to be inactive in the meetings of fedora. In my case
IRC meeting time is either early in the morning or in the evening
are away from home. How ever I remain uptodate with the threads and
meeting logs. I believe other Ambassadors are also upto date about the
threads and about recent developments. Thus measuring the activeness of
fedora Ambassadors is a bit harder job and involves cross checking. In
mean time by a wrong decision or a wrong comment by someone may be
disappointing to an interested and an active Ambassador.
