Membership Check Draft New Process

Note.png
Hello,

Thank you for applying to the "Ambassadors" group in Fedora Account System.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/AccountSystem

The job of Fedora Ambassadors is to represent the Fedora Project to all of the users, potential-contributors, and open-source enthusiasts in the world. Furthermore, Fedora Ambassadors work with many other Fedora teams, sub-projects, and special-interest-groups to ensure that they are well-informed about the many different parts of the Fedora community.

In order to maintain a high level of quality in our Ambassadors, we ask you to follow a membership process:

1. Pick a Mentor! Contact and start working with one of these mentors in your region:

Regional Ambassador mentors

Your mentor will help you with everything that you need in order to become an Ambassador.

2. Create your personal wiki page in the Fedora Project wiki.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Your_FAS-username

The page should contain valid contact information, as well as a brief description of who you are, and the sorts of work that you are doing, and plan to do, within Fedora.

A template can be found at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Template:Userpage

Be sure to add the correct category to your page, as seen below:

[[Category:Ambassadors from YourCountry]]

3. Subscribe to Fedora Ambassadors mailing List

https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-ambassadors-list

There are a lot of people on the list, so it's not necessary to send an introduction. We do group introductions of all new members periodically.

After we get a "thumbs up" from your mentor and you have completed above steps, we will sponsor and approve your membership to the Ambassador group in the Fedora Account System.

Additional Steps

Note.png
It is also recommended that you perform the following steps:

4. Change your first name and last name to Latin letters in the FAS if you filled your name in Cyrillic, Chinese, or other than Latin.

5. Subscribe to Fedora Announcements mailing List https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-announce-list

6. Subscribe to Fedora Marketing mailing List https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-marketing-list

7. Read the Mailing Guidelines carefully before you start posting there. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/MailinglistGuidelines

8. If you blog about your work as Fedora Contributor, add your blog to Planet Fedora. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Planet_HowTo

9. If you were contributing to Fedora before you signed the CLA, remove yourself from the Unlicensed Group for OPL without options.
