Dear Christoph,

> I think you still didn't understand the concept. It's not about 'slots'
> or 'jobs', it's about work that needs to be done. When there is work, we

> valued contributors if they could step up.
> How would you handle that with 'slots'? Slots per region? Slots per
> ambassadors? Per interested people? I doubt that we can find a rule that
> fits for everybody and every region.
> Back in the days I volunteered to become a mentor - and just like you I
> was refused because at that time there was no need. Later I was asked to
> become one - and this time I refused because I was already busy with
> other things. Nevertheless I always tried to help new contributors - you

> Even if you are not a mentor you can always help new contributors and do
> the work that needs to be done.
> Think of the FUDCon you helped to organize in Z├╝rich: You didn't do it

> You see: No need for a title, no need for more rules, but need for

> This being said I think you have raised enough questions. If you think

> wiki, then we can discuss it and give it to FAmSCo for ratification.
> Sounds like a plan?

Yeah, sounds good :)
