Well I just wanted to say "thank you, Jeremy" for the addition of this forum... I may be saying it a little bit too late, but I was out of town and only contacting LinuxQuestions.org to answer or view already posted posts... Anyway, thanks again!
Originally posted by Darkstar What's considered a Red Hat Ambassador?
Ambassadors are an official group of users that were invited by Red Hat to join. There are roughly a dozen of us scattered around the world. Our roles are to help Red Hat monitor the user community and report back to Red Hat things that should interest them. Sometimes it might be a report of a cronic problem, a leaning of the user community towards specific issues, Red Hat being silly about some policy or another, licensing and pricing issues, and similar stuff. We're all volunteers and have normal jobs. You can't ask to join - you must be invited.
I've reported various things to Red Hat - sometimes I see the result and sometimes I don't. Sometimes Red Hat disagrees with what I report - it's their company and they make the rules. Some issues take a long time to address so changes may be in the works in the background.
Most of the time we lurk in the background and monitor things. Sometimes we take active roles in issues. It varies from person to person and day to day.
