I am also very in favor of this repository. It would serve as a great
way to share ideas between regions and contributors.

I'd like to see us encourage all contributions, even those from
non-ambassadors. Perhaps we could set up a repo where there is a large
number of committers who accept almost all material.
I had some extra time today, and I went ahead and created a mock concept
for this idea. You can find the demo repository on the Pagure staging site:
In the repository, you can see that I added a few files as an example…
…but the examples are empty files, they are just there to give a better
idea of what a repository like this would look like. I thought it would
be a good idea to include both templates and actual presentations here.
Additionally, I also gave a hand at setting up some basic guidelines for
contributing content there as well, but if we choose to go through with
this, additional feedback on those guidelines would be welcome.
What do you all think about this? Is this something we would like to
create officially and promote? Any and all feedback welcome.
