Re: [Ambassadors] taggin non active ambassadors on he wiki

Hi All,

In regards to this current thread, I just had a quick comment.

I haven't been very active in posting discussions to our email lists, but I have been very active in reading all the latest postings to the lists as they come in.  Being one who has been a HUGE Fedora fan for years, and only more recently, a member of the Ambassadors, I often feel like my inputs would probably be better answered by someone more knowledgable.  However, I do read almost all the threads in our lists.

I am, however, a very vocal supporter of Fedora Core in my daily duties at work and elsewhere.  In my line of work, a lot of my customers and co-workers have been exploring their non-Redmond options, and I am always very quick to encourage them to try Fedora Core.  So, I feel my ambassador participation is more along the lines of being an interface to  folks outside the community.  I am hoping still to get to a point where I can be more actively involved in our email discussions and mailing list threads.

As a side note, I am REALLY REALLY impressed with Core 6!  This is one fantastic release!  You guys have done an incredible job.  A lot of the features that you have improved upon have motivated a lot of the folks I work with to try Fedora Core 6.  I've been burning DVD's for them like crazy!

Thanks so much and I hope my non-written, but verbal communications as an ambassador are valuable to the team!

Casey Jones
