Fedora is a very technically oriented distribution. It makes hard
choices which are difficult to convey to users without technical
understanding. That means the job of a Fedora ambassador is *harder*
than in other distributions.

That being said it's no reason to redefine popularity. We've chosen a
harder road but will fail as much as any other distribution if we
can't grow our userbase, and attract talents in countries which are
ignoring Fedora today.

IMHO Fedora ambassadors need to coordinate more closely with the
distribution technical teams, which communicate in English. That means
deputising people to hang on the tech lists, and then figure how to
present what the tech people are working on.
