Morning all.

I would like to discuss further the "inactive" status of an ambassador. It's true that we have a load of ambassadors that are mostly active in other groups and that is definitely a +1 (packagers, designers, coders, etc), however, what will "inactive ambassador" mean?

An ambassador...

* Hasn't participated on an event for over 18 months?
* Hasn't write a blog post for over 18 months?
* Hasn't participated on mailing lists or IRC or X for 18 months?

The ambassador role is to be a people person, so, will we consider the inactivity as a people person or as a Fedora member?

See ya!

Hey Robert, I have been inactive for quite some time now, and do wish start making huge contributions. How do I go about that?

Dear all,
we have just finished our regular ambassador's activity check and set
the ambassador's accounts which were not active for the last 18 months
to "inactive".
See our policy if you are not comfortable with this:

However, the Infrastructure team raised some concerns about this rule,
as we are setting accounts globally as inactive/disabled, and they
asked the Council for a project wide decision to make that happen. The
Council will discuss if we will have this policy or not, but also
advised FAmSCo to handle this issue in the meanwhile by removing those
accounts from the FAS group, instead of setting them to inactive.

I have written down a proposal, where you will find more informations
about the process and about how we would like to reactivate people if
they like to come back. Please read it carefully and look also into
the discussions on Infra and Council pagure before making your own

FAmSCo is going to follow the Council's advise, but for openness and
transparency we would like to get community feedback, as we did when
this rule has been put in place.
We also want to get this discussed during your next regional meeting,
so if we miss to reach out to your chairs and anyone of you is
attending the next meeting, please add it to your agenda.

Please use this discussion if you like to give us feedback.
Thank you.

Kind regards.
