What is our role as ambassadors?
I think that is promoting the Fedora in our country, am i wrong?
So I became ambassador to promote Fedora in Portugal.
But I believe there are ambassadors who don't think this way, at least
As already announced in this list, it will start soon the site for the
project Fedora Portugal.
The other 5 Portuguese ambassadors were invited on several occasions to
participate in the website.
More than a month passed and still not got an answer.
The point is this: I live in Luxembourg and I am alone in this
adventure, should I start the project without any support?
I don't think so. as some said before YOU ARE NOT ALONE. As you can see
there are many helping hands here. I also can get you in contact with
and TUDOR. There you can place permanent Posters, Flyers, etc.
You see, there are many infos that will come...
The only support I have had, has been the Brazilian ambassadors as
Eunir Augusto (which made most of the work!), Erick Gomes and Rodrigo
In Portugal Fedora is unknown, has a bad translation, has no wiki and
just does not have a community.
So we urgently need a web site with a forum and a wiki.
Here I want to ask you to use existing Ressources as long as there is
no need for it. You mentioned that you are at this time ONE Ambassador.
How many "Users" or people are "around" you? Or can you imagine how
many this would be? Why do you need another wiki and another Community
Site? Is there REALLY a need for it?
Maybe you can ask the Webmaster of http://www.fedoraforum.org/
can put in another section for Luxemburg. I think you have a Fedora
Account, so you can put up under your wiki-Site some facts or Links to
the facts in the wiki. That can be a first shot of a Startingpoint.
Then as mentioned a little project or event and look how many people
We need to bring together the users, and encouraging
more people to translate the Fedora.
With the help of Brazilian ambassadors, the site could start operating
The question is: who will be there?
That is why I ask your opinion:
it is worth starting the site even alone, without the support of
another 5 Portuguese ambassadors?
As I said: If i would do such a thing I would look wich ressources I
can allready use for a first start. Think of our 4-Foundations: http://tinyurl.com/5ft5qa
Then the rest will come ... as you can see here ;-)
