Ok. So may I safely assume anyone from a local Ambassadors group (e.g.
Italy) can propose to allocate some budget?

Case in point. We're organizing our presence at Linux Day (Oct 23);
admittedly, we did not plan ahead enough for preparing event kits to
distribute, but I also realized the procedures to request and use
budget were not clear enough to speed up things; basically, it looked
like no one in our group had the time and/or skills to push this

So, let's say I'd like to allocate budget to prepare some posters,
banners, stickers, etc and build some ready to go event kits, what's
the next steps?

Thank you very much
