Since we already have a couple of posts on this in the thread, thought
we might need to change subject line. My two cents in the above
mentioned idea of "creating a wiki page" thingi goes below.

Will that *actually* help? We already have too many wiki pages
speaking thousands of lines of "Guidelines". Though "RTFM" is a nice
attitude to learn new things, this is something a new person would not
want to do. Believe me, "how many time experienced opensource people
ask things on IRC, when the thing is very much on some manual or even
google ? "

So the solution (*effective*) could be to tamper with the basic
foundation. Here I see the foundation to be as pradeepto mentioned
"Right there when you go and speak on Fedora and foobar at a univ",
"Right when one encourages some person to become a ambassador". This
IMO must also be part of the ambassador status process and not after
one gets the status and begins to preach fedora to others.

I see the "issue" ( I hate to call this a "Problem" ), as something to
do with more preaching that is happening by the new generation (which
is fantabulously great), but at the same time giving importance to
preaching it right!

Thats it from my side (Sorry, it was more than two cents that I
thought it would be in the beginning ;)
