Hi Kevin,

I think this is an good start, and I say there we should suggest more
and more tools. Altrough we have shut down the fedora talk part
(SIP/VOIP) inside fedora - we have alternatives for this too - and no
need for just google talk, or skype. For our teams I could suggest
Mumble for voip chat, or team meeting, and also for long term - even

BTW, for our ambassadors I think we could have tools, on drupal base -
like drupal commerce, and COD - but these are only few examples.
