Membership Check

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:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/Join#Find_regional_Ambassador_Mentors

Your mentor will help you with everything that you need in order to become an Ambassador. The recommended way to start is, contact the Mentor via email and introduce yourself through your WikiPage.

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 and please read Appropriate Material

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

Mentor's first Answer

Note.png
Hi!

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 (chat.freenode.net) 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!
