You mean to say I just want a name, then I wont be paying my flight
charges myself to travel and educate people in colleges about Fedora
and FOSS. I am not mad, its all about passion. Please don't be
arrogant if you don't know the person exactly and what he is upto.

All the community works cannot be recorded and submitted as a proof to
the "mentor" to get promoted. My mentor want more and more proofs

I am working in FOSS more than 10+ years and I was a red hat employee
as well. I don't need the name to work on ....
