Dear Greg and Mark,

Initially, I believe the idea of Community Marketing Contacts is great!

I don't know who are the people you intend choosing to cover the globe,
but I have a few concerns I thought I should address here:

1) They have to be RedHatters, and native speakers of the specific
language. Otherwise, I don't think they'll be able to thoroughly
represent RH in a certain community nor understand their needs;

2) I know a few members of our i18n team
(http://intranet.corp.redhat.com/ic/intranet/EngInternationalizationLocalization.html), who would probably enjoy the challenge, but majority of us is sited in Brisbane (Australia), so wouldn't make the local events and LUGs;

3) How are we dealing with laws in different countries (e.g.: I need a
non-for-profit organization registration number to register a .org.br
domain name in Brazil...)

For a start, I'd suggest creating a Marketing Plan for the Fedora
Foundation as if RH was launching a brand new product, allowing enough
time for the Community Marketing Contacts to adapt the materials to all
languages, and coordinating timely news publishing.

Feel free to browse through our team's intranet page (above), and don't
hesitate to contact me if your need further assistance.
