Taking the other view from everyone else: I'm not subscribed to the
Ambassadors' list and didn't plan to be either. I get plenty of mail
through my inbox already and so try to be selective with what I
subscribe to. imho while the two lists serve two groups with similar
goals, surely the methods they use to go about achieving them are

>From my point of view (this could be complete rubbish, be warned :P), it
seems that on the marketing list our main aims are along the lines of
producing content and making sure that when the press - whether they're
lay press or mainstream - talk about Fedora the information they use is
accurate and fair; on the Ambassadors' list I've always assumed the main
goal to be how best to represent Fedora at conferences, LUGs, working
with the free media program etc. 

Of course these goals aren't mutually exclusive and it makes sense for
people working on the one to work on the other too, but I feel there is
a lot each group can achieve independently of each other too. Still, if
people feel that our purposes can best be served by merging the two
lists, I would be more than happy to go along with it.

The question of how effective the current projects are (and this goes
well beyond the mailing lists) is another question entirely! And
probably one for another thread...

Best wishes to all,
