As you know "firstname.lastname at fedoraproject.org" email alias is no
longer used as of last week[1] per Fedora Infrastructure Team. Only
"accountname at fedoraproject.org" email alias[2] should be used from now

I understand some of us are still using "firstname.lastname" for your
important contacts and *really* need to continue using this

Thank to Mike McGrath, Fedora Ambassadors Team received a special
permission to make rare exceptions to *only* existing and active
Ambassadors with *good* reason.

Here are some rules for such exceptions:

1) The additional alias for the Ambassadors must be
firstname.lastname at fp.o convention if it's absolutely necessary.

2) Exceptions are made by Thomas Chung for the Ambassadors only. He
has the final decision as to whether someone is eligible for the alias

3) Careful precautions must be made to not cause collisions. (This
would include looking out for suspicious aliases like
senior.admin at fedoraproject.org

4) In addition, you must provide a very good reason why you must have
firstnname.lastname email alias.

Once again, we encourage you to use "accountname at fedoraproject.org" as
your default email alias but if you must have "firstname.lastname"
alias, please submit your request to me in private with following
