We have Fedora Marketing that's a sub-project of Fedora Ambassador, the problem is that we need a miliar stone in each country where media and other ambassador, in their native language, can talk and work together. If a italian magazine want to talk about Fedora, it prefer to takes information in italian language, talking with an italian, at the same time if an ambassador need help for an event, he can ask his country team using the languge where he is more fluent.

This would mean that FAmSCo and other structure continue to make their work focusing on the project management (and economic issue) etc..., the only change is that each country has its local management that focus only on organize the promotional activity. I think that Ambassadors will be more stimulated to work in a "friendly athmosphere" and, at the same time, will create a local identity that can only improve the local appeal.

I agree with Paul. Ambassadors already are the people responsible for
such things. This is one of the target they were created for :)
