Yes, if it can help people to get involved. Local community websites are
more than a simple forum in a defined language ;)

Something you do not seem to consider is that it is much easier to
integrate a local, small group, which can be compared to a band of friends
or even a family, than a huge international project.

In the first one, you can easily be integrated, and feel part of it, as
well as give your opinion, help doing small things at your level, etc...

In the second one, you feel easily overwhelmed by all those emails, by the
fact that all those people speaking seem to be in there for a very long
time, that they seem to be more "competent", which will make you hesitate
to say something and participate.

Now, here is my question, if he _wants to_ put his efforts in this, why
would we prevent him to do so ?

That's yet another barrier, preventing someone to contribute at his own
level. I thought one of the goals of Fedora (and one of yours as the
"become an Ambassador" process leader / simplifier / improver / <go on
with with nice adjectives describing the great work you're doing on this>)
was the exact opposite...
