I think you are on a good way - i like the idea with the localization marathon

Don´t know what do you exactly mean. From what i see - maybe it is not the 
wisest to start the contribution to the Fedoraproject with a color artwork 
discussion ;-)

It´s not easy to be a one man show, but you are not alone, find more 
contributors in your country, be a leader for them - start to hire them on 
events. Set goals like partizipation/talks on Events or your localization 
marathon, stay in contact with us - try to meet Ambassadors face to face.

Maybe a good start is to pick up the presention from Chitlesh, update it and 
give this talk on a event ...
