Introduction

  • Please briefly describe your history with Fedora:
    • I started with Free Media group and then joined with the Ambassador group. Since then I am contributing to Design Team, Marketing Team, News,Summer coding and Localization work as well.
    • Locally, I have organized some events including release parties and fedora events. I represent the Fedora project in events and initiated the fedora local communityLK_Community.
    • I expanded the Fedora project in University level locally, that makes the local community stronger and also working with APAC ambassadors towards a strong community by assisting them.
    • I manage APAC Bi-weekly meetings with David and Tuan.
    • I wrangle fedora-apac trac and facilitate fellow FAms in the region.
    • Elected as a member of FAmSCo for F18 cycle.
  • Why do you want to be a member of FAmSCo?:

I hope I did manage F18 term in FAmSCo and I would like to keep it up by trying to achieve following vision;

    • FAmSCo is playing a major role with in the Ambassador Group, indeed they set the path to proceed.
    • First, the main aim is to support the Ambassador Group.
    • I need to provide a dedicated, effective support which Ambassadors need.
    • I would like to be a part of the team and be an active part of decision making process which lead shaping the project.
    • Further I want to make the FAmSCo, a place which is more attentive, sensitive, responsive and assisted to ambassadors and their needs.
  • What is the proper role for FAmSCo in a global project like Ambassadors?:
    • The main role of the FAmSCo is to provide the support that Ambassadors seek. The support should be fast and it should be effective. Such a support keeps the global ambassador effect active and useful. Therefore FAmSCo as the hub, should provide assistant and resources and ensure the ambassadors are getting what they need, when they need. Being align with the team is another very important role that FAmSCo should play. FAmSCo should be very sensitive with the ambassadors. Should identify their needs, ideas, thoughts and try to facilitate, encourage and even try to get novel ideas to shape the team and as well as the project. FAmSCo govern the ambassador team and as well as act as the central hub which connects other entities as well.
  • What are your particular goals related to FAmSCo?:
    • As a candidate it is easier for you if I mention my vision clearly, that shows mainly How I see and What I ll do as a member of the FAmSCo if I am elected.
    • FAmSCo should be responsive/ sensitive to needs and issues with in FAms.
    • FAmSCo should be attentive.
    • FAmSCo should be motivational.
    • Develop the regions country wise.
  • What would you change about the way Ambassadors is run?:
    • Overall the ambassador group is running well. There are few things we need to make up.
    • More interaction is needed with in the group, so that we can encourage the ambassadors to participate to meetings and the FAmSCo can help them to make the meeting successful being actively engaging with those.
    • It is required to develop and make strong the fedora communities countrywide, it is possible to use FADs (more FADs) for that and later when we have strong communities so we can have FUDCons in various countries with in regions covering most of the parts.
    • Increase quality on FAm activities (events, funding, reporting, guidelines, active participation, encourage FAms, more goal oriented..)
