Hi Rahul,

As a user I started with Redhat 6.0 in the year 2000, presently I use
both Fedora 12 and 13 (beta as of now).

After having spent a lot of time over the years, in spreading the usage
of Linux and advocating Free and Open Source Software (but not exactly
by way of holding seminars or presentations) more by the way of
innovating the application solutions and hand holding and spoon feeding
the converts to LINUX, I simply state, keep the ambassadors program as
it is.

Keep it maintained, by listing people as inactive based on pre-defined
time lines (reminder emails to renew the active status etc.)

If you really want some yardstick to measure performance of an
ambassador, then build some monetary / cash rewards and incentives into
the program.

I have not listed myself as an ambassador so far, if the rewards /
incentives are good enough, I will surely list myself :)

with Regards,
