I think that the most important change is to change the fact that we have unused budget, we want to reach new collaborators and we need to invest on get them.--[[User:Yn1v|Yn1v]] 03:12, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Revision as of 18:16, 27 October 2010

Important.png
Nominations are open.
The nomination period closes on November 7th.

FAmSCo 2010 elections

Candidates must be a member of the Ambassadors group in the Fedora Accounts System. This helps ensure that FAmSCo members have some experience with the processes of Fedora Ambassadors, but still allows relatively new contributors to sit on FAmSCo and bring fresh ideas to the table.

Ambassadors will be following the Fedora election timeline.

You may self-nominate. If you wish to nominate someone else, please consult with that person ahead of time.

  • Please briefly describe your history with Fedora.
    • Fedora User since 2006 and joined the Nicaraguan Fedora group in March 2008.
    • Ambassador since August 20th, 2008 and Mentor since April 5th, 2010.
    • Freemedia Team since Decenber 2008 and Administrator since April 2009
    • Marketing Team since January 1st, 2010, working with Fedora Weekly News team making the marketing beat since February 2010.
    • I have tried to get Fedora Ambassadors in all Central America. I have to said that Panama ambassadors came in their own, but I have made contact with people in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Costa Rica to achieve this, even before been appointed as a mentor.
    • I have organized several events in Nicaragua, and participate in others events in Central America. Among the events that I have helped to organize there is the recognition as one of the best F11 release party.
    • I have participated at FUDCom Latam 2009 in Porto Alegre Brasil and FAD Marketing 2010 in Raleigh. I will be attending to FUDCom 2011 in Tempe.


  • Why do you want to be a member of FAmSCo?

I like to keep working to enhance the growth of Fedora in Central America and LATAM. I think it is useful to have a voice representing our region in FAmSCo. Budget has several time not used fully in LATAM, and in the other hand Ambassadors have been putting their own money to produce events. I think this needs to change.

  • What is the proper role for FAmSCo in a global project like Ambassadors?

FAmSCo should be a facilitator of the activities that Ambassadors undertake around the world. To bridge Ambassadors to the right people within the project when ideas arise that are involving more than Ambassadors team.

  • What are your particular goals related to FAmSCo?

Enable Ambassadors in LATAM to fully use their budget in a responsible and constructively way. Others goals that I have in the project does not require to be elected, such a revamp of distribution project that is only living as expenses of Freemedia team.

  • What would you change about the way Ambassadors is run?

I think that the most important change is to change the fact that we have unused budget, we want to reach new collaborators and we need to invest on get them.--Yn1v 03:12, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

  • Please briefly describe your history with Fedora.

I have signed the CLA in 2008. Shortly afterwards I joined the Ambassadors group because I wanted to help promoting Fedora. I have already been participating in several FADs/events and am a package maintainer, too. This year I have organized FUDCon EMEA Zurich together with my college Sandro which was a lot of work (but also a lot of fun :))

  • Why do you want to be a member of FAmSCo?

    • I am thinking of new ways to distribute installation media (as DVDs are not that modern, any more).

The Ambassadors project is already run in an adequate way, but I want to integrate some aspects more into the rest of the project (e.g. all group mentors are listed at: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mentors but Ambassadors are liked to a separate page.)
