Yes. These roles are for a cause which the person believes in, A person
committed to a cause has no need to explain.

These roles are not to meet specific / individual / corporate time bound
targets / goals / objectives for some tangible returns monetary or non

Assume, Linus take a leave for an undefined time period, you want an
explanation from Linus as it disturbs the Fedora release cycle. This is
not correct.

I believe in the cause for which I enlist myself, which in my opinion -
no one else has the right to question other than myself. If you do, then
you risk of loosing me.

Do you think people like me would come back and explain myself to
restore my identity as a Fedora Ambassador ? I am sure I would not.

Think again, I am responding to each email after sensing the tone in the
email, why am I doing it even though I do not even hold a Fedora account.
It is because, I believe in the cause and want it to succeed and not
fall prey to short term objectives. .
