I was not proposing an extra level of ambassador membership. I was talking
about the ambassadors who joined the Ambassadors group without much
Fedora/Linux backgrounds. We see many Fedora contributors become
ambassadors, and I also want to see if we could help those who started from
the opposite way (Join as ambassadors -> contributors in another team).

There are people who likes FOSS/Fedora and wants to promote it, as users.

No. I am also completely against it. No way for more tiers of ambassador
from here.
