Ok. I will search the list then.

If they don't want to do this as a single contributor is there a person
they could talk to? And there may also be the problem with different
licenses.

Yes, as single contributors.

Agreed.

So one of them must join Fedora Marketing at his own? Or will Fedora
Marketing initiate a talk?

Yes, of course. but not everybody can speak or write in english.

So the loal website administrators should join the website team at
their own?



Sorry If some of the questions may sound a little bit stupid. :)
Is there a wiki page with help and proposals for this case? I mean
something like a "starting guide" what local forums can do, to whom
they should speak and so on. Or just a page that describes how local
forums can get more involved "at a whole forum", not as single
contributors.
