But I think some kind of reporting should be done. I am telling this though I don't get enough time to update wiki , attend meetings myself but from the point of view of Fedora we should consider the scenario too. May be we are working silently and are active but how come other ambassadors will know that ? We should at least report our activities once a week, if not possible every fortnight in the wiki or to this mailing list or to other ambassador in our region.
I am going to follow this from now on rather I should.
