Probably because we are expected to be on the marketing-list too :-)

Partly true. I do agree that all the "Fedora in the news" isn't really
that interesting, maybe this should be moved off to the news-list. I do
get the basic idea behind it, and in a sense it's good: put all guys
promoting Fedora on the same page and being sure that we bring the same
message. If you think about it: we *are* as Ambassadors also doing
marketing for Fedora. Just more in a face-to-face fashion, compared to
press releases, interviews with the devels.

Some people don't want to be Ambassadors but are doing a kick-ass job on
marketing, and we as Ambassadors do that too, but we're both with the
same goal: promoting Fedora

So I'd be okay with the merge *if* some stuff gets sorted out.

+1 last year, stays +1 this year.


Small BTW: last years vote was slightly positive in the favor of
merging, so it's not bad to re-evaluate what was said back then.
