It seems that I keep writing about the FAmSCo I was reading Joerg Simon’s post on the Membership statistics and wondered if the FAmSCo has considered the following aspects:
- the load on each Ambassador Mentor ie. how many candidates are they mentoring in a specific period of time
- whether there is a need to sponsor and approve new Mentors
- whether there is a need to focus on regions from where there is a single or, no Ambassador
- the pattern, if any, in the reasons for the candidates whose applications to be a Fedora Ambassador is rejected
- whether there is a need and, a way the FAmSCo can get back in touch with such candidates and see if they can be coached to become Ambassadors (once rejected isn’t rejected forever)
I had earlier written about a few different things FAmSCo could look into. These are interesting times. The Wikipedia Ambassador/Campus Ambassador program seems to be partly based on the benefits derived from the structured workflow within the Fedora Ambassadors process. FAmSCo has an opportunity to reach out and collaborate to share knowledge about the process and at the same time incorporate suggestions which prepare the Ambassadors for higher achievements. More importantly, it would provide FAmSCo with a clearer way to measure its own success.
