Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee Election 2009: Nominations

Candidates may be any member of the Ambassadors group in the Fedora Accounts System. This helps ensure FAmSCo members have some experience with the processes of Fedora Ambassadors but still allows relatively new contributors to sit on FAmSCo and bring fresh ideas to the table.

Ambassadors will be following the Fedora general election timeline.

You may self-nominate. If you wish to nominate someone else, please consult with that person ahead of time. Wiki nomination pages carry additional details about the nominee which the nominee is expected to write.

  • Candidate statement

I am proud that major goals i have planned last year for my first FAmSCo candidature are achieved:

But i also failed with some goals:

  • the process to find new ways to encourage people for contributions needs improvement
  • i was not sustainable enough to enforce that the Ambassador Group has liasons to the other important Groups in the Fedora Project

Once doesn't count ;) - i would be really happy if you trust me again. As a FAmSCo member i will further do all my best to help all Fedora Ambassadors to achieve their best contributions.

  • Contributor profile

After a history as Linux user/enthusiast/contributor since 1995, my involvement with Fedora started with my first FUDCon in 2005, today i contribute to multiple groups in the Fedora Project. My main focus in Fedora right now is: the work on Community Development and Mentoring, Fedora as Security Testing Platform and the Fedora Security Spin, Fedora mailing list- and membership-administration and working on strong support for the Fedora Community in underrepresented regions in the world! Promoting Fedora on Events is another major part of my work and so i work as organizer, driver, helper, slogger, promoter on a lot Events every year and i produce, store and ship most of the EMEA SWAG and Booth Material.

  • Future plans
  • more transparency for the work that is done by FAmSCo
  • further - enhance Fedora´s presence in underrepresented Regions - concrete: a translation marathon in Kyrgyzstan in 2010 and more focus on Africa!
  • further - improve the Membership and regional Mentoring Process - more power to the mentors!
  • establish measurability not only for Membership also for Success of Events!
  • ongoing - Establish liasons to other subprojects! - especally to marketing, artwork and docs!
  • ongoing - Invent new ways to encourage people to contribute to the Fedora Project
