+1 I'm totally agree with that... it will be useful

Done for me :)

We (Tunisian Ambassador) organize more than 3 or 4 event per year (2 Release
Party and 2 other, juste to promote)

> * Maintains a blog on Planet Fedora, with about one post per month.

Done, but at Fedora Fr Planet ;)

> * Participates on fedora-list or fedoraforum.org to help people w/

We do our better to be present at all the ML and forum, specially at the
Fedora Fr community

> * Indicates their willingness to mentor and guide new contributors or new
> users.

Clear :)
