Esta página está para explicar la estructura y organización del subproyecto de Embajadores dentro del Proyecto Fedora


  • Embajador es un miembro del Grupo de Embajadores en el Fedora Account System (FAS). Vaya a Más práctico, un Emabjador cumple el proósito de ser un representante de Fedora.
  • Comité Directivo de Embajadores de Fedora (o "FAmSCo") es el cuerpo dirigente del Proyecto de Embajadores de Fedora (o Proyecto de Embajadores).
  • Administrador de Membresía de Embajadores es la persona, nominada por FAmSCo, responsable de mantenimiento y supervisión de la membresía en FAS de Embajadores, Patrocinadores de Embajadores en FAS y Mentores de Embajadores de acuerdo con las directrices emitidas por FAmSCo.
  • Region - Fedora ha dividido el mundo en regiones geográficas para impulsar la responsabilidad y la autoridad. Actualmente esas regiones son Asia Pacífico (APAC), Europa, Medio Oriente y África (EMEA), América Latina (LATAM), y America del Norte (NA).
  • Liderazgo Regional - Liderazgo nombrado o elegido por las regiones geográficas que dirigen los acontecimientos que suceden en la región, proporcionan la supervisión del presupuesto y, en general las cosas se hagan.
  • Mentor - Un embajador que ha sido nominado por los mentores en su región, y aprobado por FAmSCo para esneñarles a Embajadores potenciales y nuevos.



FAmSCo is composed by seven (7) members elected annually from around the globe. Following the election rules, a Chair and Vice-Chair are elected.

Duties and functions

  1. organizes the general structure of Ambassadors project;
  2. distributes resources globally;
  3. organizes global initiatives;
  4. coordinates membership management and the mentoring initiative.
  5. promotes the cohesion between Ambassadors and Regions;
  6. nominates the Ambassadors Membership Administrator;
  7. promotes the diffusion of the Fedora Project's principles.
  8. resolve any disputes brought before it

The other functions, if not required by the situation, are managed by the regional leadership.

Ambassadors Membership Administrator

To deal with the large influx of Ambassador membership related administrivia, FAmSCo routinely appoints several Ambassadors to serve as Membership Administrators. These individuals have been delegated the responsibility of handling membership details on behalf of FAmSCo.

Regional Leadership

Each region, due to geographical and cultural differences, largely manages activities and budget within it's region. Some regions have a highly structured local organization, while others are more ad hoc. Leadership, whether de facto, elected or appointed is responsible to transparently operate within the community.


Realizing the tremendous learning curve that is present upon becoming an Ambassador and the requirement that Fedora's guiding principles be properly represented, FAmSCo setup a process whereby potential Ambassadors are teamed with established mentors to ensure they have the requisite knowledge and experience to begin working effectively. Mentors are given wide leeway in determining if applicants are to be approved.


Ambassadors are the representatives of Fedora to the public, and the larger F/LOSS community. Ambassadors have the purpose of ensuring that those audiences understand Fedora's principles, and know of the work that Fedora is doing. Additionally Ambassadors are responsible for helping to grow the contributor base, and to act as a liaison between other F/LOSS projects and the Fedora community.
