I think this is correct, right? Boosters are not ambassadors and
ambassadors are not boosters. BUT ambassadors can discuss things on
-boosters ML and boosters on -ambassadors ML. Or are you suggesting that
we should discuss all events we go to on ambassadors list?

Well, at least let them know, I guess. It's true that the two are different
and I think the whole thing isn't really worth more than 2 mails (hehe) but
Bryen was probably also talking in more generic terms.

The boosters are doing quite a bit of marketingy and ambassadory work - and
frankly, I think our ambassadors can learn from what you guys set up at
LinuxTag and Fosdem. The selling of beer which was done at FOSDEM we took to
SCALE (but with t-shirts, those silly americans have a problem selling booze
at a conference) and it was greatly appreciated, to give an example.

And I'm sure it is good if you guys see what some of our ambassadors are doing
- with far less resources in terms of materials esp, by the way. Moreover, YOU
guys know the talk - the details, the reasons-for-openSUSE. That are things
our ambassadors sometimes lack. Again an area where you could help.

The boosters have a bit of a special position as it's your *explicit* goal to
work on 'boosting' openSUSE. Now if you want to 'boost' packaging, you'd join
the factory list too, right?

I just think our ambassadors would profit from some of the things you guys do.
And we in marketing in general.

But I also realize that extra mail is probably not what you look for. Then
again, I suppose you have a good mail client which can handle that, yes?

;-)

cheers,
Jos
