The goals between Membership and Mentoring initiative is to help
solving this lack, working with new Ambassadors and create a direct
relation between the Project and the new members.

Great question. This is a quite complicate issue, we have first of all
to consider what could be public and what couldn't be.
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal/PrivacyPolicy), this is the
possible usage of personal informations:
| Fedora uses the personal information you provide to:
| * create and maintain your accounts;
| * answer your questions;
| * send you information;
| * for research activities, including the production of
statistical reports (such aggregated information is not used to
contact the subjects of the report);
| * send you surveys.
I'm not a lawyer, but I could assume that if something is not present
in the list, couldn't be done without the consent of the user.
So having a only, public space with people information (without asking
people to do this volunteer) isn't simple as it could be.
I want to underline that what I'm saying isn't a professional advice,
just some consideration on a legal paper. Suggestions are welcome.
