The mentors project sounds like it would be great to helping a "newbie"

listed, other interested people should add their name to the list. Keep
things simple and avoid the fork. There are already means in place to
help new people contribute to various portions of the project they are
As for the poll regarding the merger. I don't think we need a special
group of Ambassadors to tell us what effects various decisions might and
might not have on the project. Open discussion on the Ambassador list

I want to remember that we aren't (considering all the fedora
project) all such type of ambassadors, the people i suggested in my
first message are the most important, in my opinion, because their

Most important? I agree there are some very hard workers that
contribute greatly to the project, but declaring some contributors more

we can - not spending our time setting up various levels of Ambassador
membership. That starts to become too much like an elite club and is in
my opinion more apt to discourage people from contributing.
