Welcome Back LordDrachenblut!
We're thrilled that you would like to represent Fedora at SCALE!
Below you will find a number of links to places where you can find the
specific information you requested, but first, you should absolutely join
#fedora-ambassadors on Freenode and hang out there (My nick is decause if
ever you want to ping me directly :) ), and subscribe to the ambassadors'
mailing list if you haven't already.
General Ambassador Information:
Specific Ambassador Information:
Each Region has their own rules/policies for the most part, but for North
America, all the places you want to request resources that require private
information like shipping addresses (which includes things like Swag) can
be routed through the FAMNA request tracker here:
You'll need to go through the process of officially becoming a North
American Ambassador (instructions here:
but after that you can request swag for the event via the FAMNA request
As far as travel reimbursement, the Wiki page for that can be found here:
If you have other questions, stop by IRC and ask. My advice to you would be
that since Ambassadors are almost entirely volunteer driven, that you give
yourself *ample* time to apply and coordinate, and get your requests
Good Luck, Happy Hacking, and see you in channel :)
P.S. - You can also join #fedora-commops and #fedora-join on Freenode if
you're looking for other new-contributor-focused groups within the project.

We just finished our weekly CommOps meeting in #fedora-meeting-2. If you
weren't able to make it out, you can read the meeting minutes here.
Of particular note, we mentioned the CommOps Trac instance and how we
will be moving towards ticket-based meetings in the upcoming future. If
you are unfamiliar with Trac, take some time to check it out and try to
become familiar with it. More information about this specifically is in
the meeting minutes.

Every week mattdm publishes his series "5 Things In Fedora This Week."
It is a *really* awesome regular feature on Fedora Magazine, and a great
way to get out the big news of the week to the community at large. This
list is *artisinally* crafted by the FPL himself (I know because I've been
watching him diligently do it each week since I got here.)
This is one of those parts of Fedora that falls *squarely* into our "Things
CommOps Helps With" bucket.
*Mission*: Add "5tftw" to the Commops Wiki page toolbox section, and point
to Fedora Magazine as a link. In the description, indicate that if folks
want to contribute, there are only 2 requirements: The "Thing" needs at
least ONE link, and can have a maximum of 5 sentences of descriptive text.
To contribute send your "Thing" to the CommOps mailing list, and in the
subject line 5tftw and the Date of the Friday of the week you want to
publish your "thing" on. (e.g. 5tftw 10/30/15)
Good Luck CommOps!
You are kindly invited to the meeting:
CommOps IRC Meeting on 2015-11-03 from 16:00:00 to 17:00:00 US/Eastern

This meeting is for team members of the Community Operations (CommOps) team. The weekly agenda is mostly comprised of the different tasks detailed on the CommOps wiki page, although it is subject to change depending on time and context of what is going around the Fedora Project.
