Fedora Project Attendees & Booth Personal

We should have 6-8 ambassadors (or other contributors) in order to have always at least three ambassadors on the booth, and some other assisting on the distributions Devroom. Booth personnel this year are also expected to assist in the distributions Devroom (help Intro speakers, keep time, check equipment, etc). Sponsored participants are expected to stay at the booth/devroom for at least X hours per day.
