Hi again,

and just another side-note: I see much more in mentoring, than
deciding who fulfils the needs of being an ambassadors (and that's
what I have discussed with Mathieu at FUDCon EMEA and is the also part
of the first sentence on the Ambassadors Mentor page:

"Mentors are experienced ambassadors who can help you quickly become
acclimated to the work expected of Ambassadors"

e.g. from my personal experience I felt quiet lost after joining
Ambassadors (in days where you Joerg was the only one who managed the
whole process). I got good contacts to Christoph who then helped me
somewhat to get started, which saved me somewhat.

I know the process has been improved somewhat, so why not lift it up
one level (to how to become a Mentor)?
