- one of them is addressed as:
> *"It is extraordinarily easy to join the Fedora community and quickly
> find a project to work on."*  Clarified as:
>    * Example: Quickly find project to work on
>    * Example: Improving the new user experience
>    * Example: Mentorship
>    * Example: Helping users become contributors
>    * Example: raise the role of the Ambassadors as a first point of
> contact for new Contributor on our Media, Website...
> A good Ambassador is also a good catalyst - and i want suggest that we
