Mentor's first Answer


Thank you for your introduction. I am going to be your mentor as you learn more about being a Fedora Ambassador. Part of my job is to help you find your way into the Fedora Ambassador group. Please read the following information, and please stay in touch over email.

For information about obtaining a Fedora Project email alias or Fedora business cards, please visit following:

Please always follow our code of conduct:

Here are a few good places to start exploring our wiki:

Each region of the world has Ambassador meetings on IRC. Please join your region's meeting, and look at past meeting minutes to get an idea of what is happening.

Consider joining a Fedora event near you!

Find the other Fedora Ambassadors on Freenode IRC ( in channels #fedora-ambassadors and #fedora-mktg.

I know that there is a lot of information above, but we really appreciate you taking the time to explore the wiki and to become familiar with Fedora Ambassadors and their work. Afterwards, if you are still interested in being an Ambassador, we will work together in order to make sure that you are properly trained and that you can be successful.

Right now, I am interested in knowing more about you. For example, whether and how you are currently contributing to Fedora, how long you have been using Fedora, your plans with Fedora, and why being an Ambassador will help you to reach your goals. If you already have a meaningful user page in the wiki, you do not have to write things twice, point me to it. Otherwise this would be a very good chance to enhance your wiki page. Just be verbose - and I am waiting for your interesting reply via e-mail!

Thanks again, and welcome to Fedora Ambassadors!
