I feel that if someone is too busy to report means that probably is
overdoing his or her contribution to the project. Peak contributions
are not sustainable on the long run. I am not advocate for monthly
formal reports, but some sort of report may be good.

I think that will be good to have a better system that helps purge
"dead" people. The low barrier entry allows many people to be enlisted
and it is good. The problem is that a lot of people get in, but there
is no way out. If the person does not take care to tell his or her
inactivity in the personal page, there is no other way to tell. Worst
when the just go away without telling.

Take the example of Central America, there are ambassadors listed for
Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Panama for more than
two months and they haven't created their page. I can tell because I
checked for it when I joined free media program by the end of November
2008. There will be a Central American FOSS gathering coming on June
2009 and I can not contact them.

At the end of the year we can show statistics of Ambassadors growing,
but aren't  real because there is no system to trim down the numbers.

I feel that there is need to tackle the issue of "dead" people.
Reports are good but, I may think of that as a suggestion more than a
request. I don't mind low activity ambassadors.

I have write a lot... my two cents... what others have to said?
