Re: [Ambassadors] Manual for new ambassadors

Hello all!

This will be a great thing to do. since I start the mentor program, I have been asking several questions to the new ambassadors to help them to join a team and keep working. 

If we do an "ambassadors handbook" there should be also a "new contributors handbook". We must remember than being an ambassadors should be something that you do after help in some teams. I'm a person who believe that an ambassador must not only do events, because if they want to encourage people to contribute, they should be an example.

So, wouldn't be better so start with a compendium of this:


Maybe add to this page some more content or at least a small description, take as reference this one:


We already have info pages, but maybe we only need to improve them.

bye! :D

the wike, but he said he couldn't point a single location (or a toc)
for all this information.

Since I am new here and I want to understand how things work I propose
we could organize a simple guide for new ambassadors - if it's not
available yet. ;)
Interesting question. Even though there is no "New Ambassador
Orientation Handbook", the wiki does a good job of providing start-off
points at<https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Project_Wiki>. On the
other hand, there is this small personal project of mine which is
lying dormat - details at
<https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Sankarshan/FedoraHandbook>  which
is perhaps along the lines of what you ask. It needs more work and

Although principally not a bad idea to have a handbook, it is easier to maintain/set up a guide on the wiki, than by writing an actual handbook. So, I would suggest keeping it on the wiki itself.
