>> Also sent to Ambassadors' list. 

Hello Marketing team folks!

All of us like spreading Fedora to people around us. A major part of
this is accomplished by speaking about Fedora (spreading the word) and
providing interested users with Fedora media so they can try it out.

The Fedora Distribution process[1] was initially set up as the central
point of contact that was to handle and coordinate the different
channels that are available to spread Fedora media around. Over the
years, sadly, the coordination has been lost, and now we see the
channels as independent bits. 

As a small example: You'll find tickets in the free media list from
folks who have Ambassadors in their vicinities themselves. If the
channels were coordinated, we could ask these people to contact the
Ambassadors nearby and get themselves media burnt : saving time, effort
*and* enabling the free media to be used for other people who don't have
Ambassadors around them. 

Some of us have recently been working on tweaking the process. We've
come up with a draft here[1] that we'd like you to please review and
comment on. We also need more hands on board to help us bring this
change about :)

Can you please go through the page and provide your valuable feedback?
