Yeah conducting some workshops is also part of the programme. If you
look at the wiki page that has been created, the same point has been
added. Creating an awareness on what is Fedora and whats so great
about it is also an important area. This brings in awareness and that
awareness need to be converted to something solid and hence the Mentor
programme takes the next step of mentoring new people for their
projects which help them in the longer run.

Hope this helps

Cheers,
Balaji
