Farewell.  I know that you will always find in Fedora a home.

>> In our life, sometime, it comes the time where the things you want to
>> do become far and, even you can try to keep up with it, all the
>> efforts result in a failure.
>> I think this is just the case. You don't know how disappointed I can
>> be writing these lines, but I can't fool myself and you with future
>> plans: i can't keep up with the project.
>> First of all I want to make clear one thing: I'm using Fedora Linux
>> and will continue to use it.
>> What is changed since I have joined the project?
>> I started contributing without any ambition and I received things that
>> I didn't expect to receive: experience, leadership and new friends.
>> These are the rewards for all the time I spent in the project, trying
>> to improve and make it bigger. I don't know if I have succeeded but,
>> sure, I've done all my best.
>> My student's duties took me away for a while, like it happened in the
>> previous years, but, when I went back, it wasn't the same. Thing were
>> changed and, damn, they had changed in better. Ambassadors project had
>> become well organized, with a great FAmSCo, great Ambassadors and
>> great mentors, but I wasn't able to work like I did. My fault. Soon I
>> have become an inactive Ambassador, like the many I've tried to
>> convince to come back.
>> I get more that I expected and now it's time to have new experiences
>> and find something that could boost my knowledge and energy. Sure, my
>> experience here will help wherever I'll go!
>> Now, here I'm. Writing this goodbye email with a sad heart, but a
>> conscious brain.
>> Many people didn't trust me at the beginning, then they changed mind.
>> These are the first ones I want to thank. If I've tried to improve
>> myself, it's because of you. I commend you to continue to do the same
>> with the men and women that empower this amazing community.
>> A big thank to all the people who helped me being what I become,
>> especially who I met during the events I attended around Europe and
>> the FAmSCo members I worked with.
>> Many of you have become part of my soul. Max, Joerg, Francesco, Luca,
>> Gerold and more and more (sorry if I can't name all of you). I'll
>> never forget you and I hope to stay in touch with you, even if not
>> directly for this special project.
>> Saying goodbye is not simple. You think at what you want to underline
>> and what to not forget but, at the end, you know you have missed
>> something, forget to thank someone and, maybe, think that you are
>> doing the wrong thing. But time is passing, things are changing and
>> looking back doesn't help taking the right decision.
>> So, here I am. Thank you my friends for everything. I wish you all my best.
>> Long life to Fedora Project, one of the marvelous experience I've ever had.
>> Francesco
