The original purpose, though never really followed through on, for 
having "regional IRC sessions" on the schedule was to ensure that there 
was at least one or two meetings folks could attend to learn about 
Features going into the upcoming release, get briefed on where  and what 
types of Marketing collateral was available.  In a nutshell: Make it 
very easy for Ambassadors to get all the information they would need 
about an upcoming release to be ready for $anything (release parties, 
conferences, blogs, etc.)

I still think it is a good idea, but of course, it's up to FAmSCo if 
they'd like to pursue actually doing the IRC sessions.

One suggestion would be to have a basic set of SOPs describing what some 
of these tasks are and how they are done (or if they've never been done, 
what the basic intent was.)  I'd be happy to help out with that if there 
are tasks that are ambiguous, either in owner or in description of the 
actual work.

Once you have finalized any changes you'd like, please let the 
Ambassadors' list know and I can adjust the schedule accordingly. 
(Alternately, if there are no changes, that's a helpful thing to know as 
well - that way I don't go wondering what I missed :D)
