Hello @Bex and Latam team,

Advocate program is absolutely the quick way to growth the new team. 

In Ecuador we have 2 principal barriers to speed up the work with communities:

- Almost everything in the Fedoras universe's is in English. This is one big opportunity to add effort into translation program.
- And the second, we need help to the teach/guide the newcomers in basics stuff like IRC, wiki, and other things into Fedora ecosystem.

I've tried one solution to that. Working with classroom (Join SIG) to teach the basics technical stuff, and I've saw the need/opportunity to make an continuity program to speak about basics and ask for support with all in latam community because we want spead this in the country. This idea still is on development and we have the 2nd sprint about with the newcomers from the last weekend RP event.

Finally, we can do the approach with Mindshare to expand this idea taking the guidance/observations and the more effective way to improve the impact with the local community work in Ecuador.

Thanks for your time and supporting Latam.

Hi All,

I noticed some discussion of an advocate program in the meeting log.  Please take a look at

It'd be nice to see these programs work together so we can have an output that can be used by our entire project.

The work done by Mindshare seems to accomplish the same goals and is lighter weight.  Are there things that Mindshare should consider modifying?
