Just a quick announcement that beginning in February the North
American Ambassadors will return to having weekly meetings again at
the usual time and place (9:00pm Eastern on Tuesday evenings in
#fedora-meeting on freenode).
A group of us decided to go back to weekly meetings during discussions
at FUDCon Blacksburg. We hope that this will make it easier for new
ambassadors to become involved in our efforts, will help those already
involved be more engaged and stay on top of things that need attention
(like upcoming events that need some help getting in shape), and will
give us an opportunity to have time to drive some new initiatives as
well as tend to routine business.
In addition to this change in meeting frequency we will have a new
trac instance for North American Ambassadors to use in a variety of
ways including adding items to the next meeting agenda, raising new
issues to be addressed, and tracking progress of tasks being worked
on. More on this when it is ready to go later this week but for now I
would like to thank Nick for all his help getting this started.
Come join us on February 7 for our resumption of weekly meetings!
Everyday new users come asking for help and learn about FOSS, and our way
to help them is through Fedora. We know that there are a LOT of tutorial on
internet, but most of them are on *text* format and yet, people love to see
things on *video*. (even more if they are multilanguage)
Probably, there is a huge list of videos already on internet, but they
aren't organized, so our new contributor Nitesh Narayan Lal  from India
would like to come up with some web-based site where people can easily find
them (or at least where we can recomend a list of videos that might be
useful for new contributors)
Talking with Mark Terranova at FUDCon Blacksburg, we got this idea of make
a simple *video join page* where we will have a small list of videos where
people can easily understand and complete the different steps that must be
followed to be part of Fedora, or any specific group. Is easier for a
contributor to record a tutorial, lets say, 10min, instead spend 30min
Nitesh has started with some easy tutorials (some that he has done and some
collected) and we would love that, if any of you are interested on this
idea, please, join us next thursday Feb-02 at 1530UTC  on #Fedora-Design
, so we can work on this idea and bring even more knowledge to our

derived from my last blog post from Fosdem for our Fellows who do not
read the planet ...
we were asked to present the Fedora Ambassador program within 5 minutes
during the "Working with contributor communities" - round-table which is
initiated by Pascal Bleser and Kostas Koudaras from OpenSUSE - and which
will happen on Fosdem Sunday in H.1301 - just wanted to share my slides
