- schwag thing is A PROBLEM: We're in a tricky spot where the logo is not yet in production, so we'll fix that as soon as we possibly can. Working on signing up with some partners to produce kits, but we're not there yet. In the meantime, we're basically sending stuff out once a month in big shipments.
What makes an Official Ambassador?
1. Probationary period
2. Mandatory attendance at this or at the local ambassadors meeting periodically ("or local meetings" added by DavidBarzilay as many local ambassadors don't speak English)
3. Acceptance by other "official" ambassadors?
4. Getting them through the account system generally is a good thing to do
Everyone who is official will have an fedoraproject.org address
If you have an account in the fedora accounts system, you have an alias @fedora.redhat.com (we are slowly moving towards consolidating Fedora infrastructure so that everything will be @fedoraproject.org). In addition, anyone who has actually stepped up to take a show is official as well.
Official Ambassadors declared by GregDeKoenigsberg during meeting: ChitleshGoorah, AurelienBompard, RahulSundaram, ThomasChung, GeroldKassube.
