This is exactly the point - people sometimes start in Ambassadors and
make their way. But Ambassadors as a Group is not a starting Group, this
is also discussed and agreed in the past. Ambassadors are usally skilled
Contributors and as example India has very strong rules to join the
Group while others not which is the way we handle it in the Ambassaodrs
Group. But i was talking about an overall Goal from Board and FAmSCo, to
help the whole Project with this goal, not only the Ambassadors Group.


*"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...
    * Example: Ambassadors as Taskjugglers for new Joiners

find the details in my first mail.
