Ambassador notes

Ambassador Requerements

  • The applicant must not only have the spirit of contributing but also the conviction to do it
  • Commitment is a MUST
  • Interact well with other users and Teams
  • Develop and/or work on ideas that can make Fedora a better place/distro

Ambassadors tasks

  • Make ambassadors gear between teams and new contributors
  • Ambassadors can guide new candidates through the same ambassador program
  • Assign tasks before they open an ambassador request ticket
  • Help teams to interact with new contributors
  • make a group+trac-instance mentorees (or call them whatever) - but no mailing list(to enforce the personal relation)!
    • make the group a place to go for absolute beginners or people who feel they need mentoring
    • joining groups directly by having a sponsor is still possible

Mentor notes

Mentors selection process

Mentors should present a record showing:

  • Their Goals
  • A list of events AND projects(teams) where
    • The mentor have helped
    • The mentor served as catalyst helping other members to join (FIX: join what???)
  • At least one year serving (non-stop) as ambassador

Selection steps:

  • Nominated by a mentor, ambassador or self nomination
  • Mentors goals and archivements are reviewed by FAmSCo and Regional Mentors
  • Every 6 months a Regional vote is being made by all ambassadors to elect a new Mentor (via majority votes)
