If this is going to be happen around contributors it would be really a nasty
thing.
Therefore please look into that, I request from FAmSCo new people after
being elected :).

In India it is like Fedora owns for one or some ppl. This should be overcome
soon. Anybody actively working should be able to get the ambassadorship,
there is no point to wait them on a que and test their patient. The final
result is the disappointment and leaving the project.

Personly I feel huge set of procedures and guide lines are not suitable for
a community work. Because we get nothing by promoting Fedora only the
personal satisfaction, then why loads of rules. We do all because we love
FOSS thats all.
