I made some estimations and completed it, but I see now I was referred 
by others for some different different areas, so I can take it more times.

For the "ambassadorial work" activity I can hardly give a time estimate 
(since it is not the main thing I do), so I choose "1-5 hours per week". 
I also find difficult to understand/quantify "resources", "stability", 
"urgency", "complexity", they do not seems to apply to every type of 
activity we do here.
Take "difficulty" as an example (I talk now about "ambassadorial" work): 
being challenging is a good thing or not? (I think it is). Talking about 
Fedora is not hard to do, the hard part is doing so in front of an 
audience :D The same about "difficulty" for design, I like doing it, I 
don't find it hard (it may be "challenging"), I find it fun. The hard 
part id finding the time for doing it.
"Efficiency" and "Quality" are also hard to measure for things like 
design and ambassadorial work, anything I say is subjective.
