I am indeed flying between airports right now. And "YES" Ambassadors
are "upstream".
In Mozilla we are right now establishing a group codenamed ReMo
(Representatives Mozilla) which resembles a lot the Fedora Ambassadors
Hopefully you guys can give your feedback on that and why not join us :)

It works, but I think this is not the case.
Credit Cards will be given to Ambassadors around the world and will
facilitate operations of Ambassadors Group (overseen by Famsco) around
the world.
Now the Finance SIG will manage budget outside Famsco and make use the
the situation of the credits cards when needed.

Indeed, it will be much easier

Please do so Joerg :) (most certainly will be payed by your credits cards)

Thanks all once again for this great meeting and my sincere apologies
for not joining you!
