[Ambassadors] Ambassadors Project vs Distribution Project

It seems many of us confused between Ambassadors Project vs
Distribution Project.
We, Ambassadors are not part of Distribution project and we should not
ask for media from Fedora Project to distribute them under Fedora Free
Media Program.

Fedora Free Media Program was originally created by concerned members
of the  Fedora Ambassadors Project in an effort to deliver Fedora
media for those who can't afford to download or get from media

Fedora Free Media Program also has a clear guideline in the
Information page[1] which states we supposed to burn and ship media
using our own resources (DVD writer, blank media, shipping materials
and postage).

It's _JUST_ wrong to join Ambassadors Project and Free Media Program
_JUST_ to receive some free media from Fedora Project. If this
continues, I rather close down the Free Media Program once for all.
This is not why I started this program originally.

In other hand,  if you joined Ambassadors Project and Free Media
Program, you _MUST_  burn and ship at least 1 DVD a month.  If you
can't do that, I would politely ask you remove yourself from the
program since we have so many _INACTIVE_ members in the program.
