Hello Brian and thank for the answer
I do not know If Edward is a Peruvian or either if he is in Lima.
I'd hope that as a team we know how to work remotely and across cultures. Unless the
folks in Lima speak a language that Edward doesn't, I don't see how this
disqualifies him. I think it would also be good if you specifically contacted the folks
fostered my team and taught them how to coordinate events, even more, I am
guiding Solanch remotely and I consider myself still active, the only thing
is that I am not attending online to the LATAM meetings because it is on
Friday (I can make it on weekends) and I want Solanch and Martin can attend
in my behalf on fridays to be more involved with Fedora LATAM.
I don't think it is your intention to write this as though these folks are actually
part of the Julita project and not the Fedora project, but that is how it reads to me.
Instead, I think this is a great time to make sure the folks in Lima are part of the
larger Fedora community. As you have said, you are going to be busy so they should
already have contacts in the larger LATAM and Fedora communities.
We are going
to continue the Fedora events in Lima because my idea was always in
training my people and continuing this work with or without me.
This is what a good Ambassador Mentor does. What can we do to get them involved so they
are comfortable with not just relying on you?
Maybe I will open a ticket to celebrate the Fedora Lima release event
my account and say in that ticket that the organization on-site is going to
be in charge of Martin and Solanch.
This is an option. Better is having them know how to open the tickets themselves.
In case there is needed for financial purposes, I suggest that Martin
Solanch become Fedora Amabassor Peru in case I will take a longer
internship here in the lab. I have been their Fedora mentor for years as
well as the other Lima Linux that have their FAS account since years. Both
Martin and Solanch have more than two years in raw helping me in the Linux
local community in Lima, Peru. I hope their efforts can be recognized some
Let's make that day today. Why are we not working on getting Martin and Solanch ready
to be ambassadors and made such now? There is no geographic maximum on the number of
ambassadors per city.
