India then? Please tell me, say not I contribute to the wiki or such
stuff, because thats not the job for an Ambassador.
I can only speak for myself. In the past year or so -
-I have done and personally overseen over 100 individual oS installs.
-Handled openSUSE in two installfests.
Among them, there will be people who still use openSUSE, dropout's who
went (back) to some other distro/OS?
-Taken introductory classes for primary school teachers, albeit as
part of a larger group
-provided round the year support for around 50 users at town/institute
-guided new users
-gave several impassioned 'Why openSUSE' speeches to groups and
-Ran word-of-mouth as well as DVD distribution campaigns in Mukti, a
LUG symposium with over 1000 registrations.
-followed strict openSUSE oriented policy in our startup despite
-tried to help on the social media visibility front, mostly twitter.
All of you people could join together and celebrate and spread the word
about openSUSE 11.3? An opportunity to turn few people who simply use
Linux into major contributors, bring those who live in the past with
10.3, 11.0 to the current/future.
I agree, you are not paid to work and we are just a community of
volunteers. No one can demand, you to do something. Just suggestions.
This I have done, african bird or not, without even a single piece of
merchandise, despite two clear requests, one for merchandise, another
Maybe someone's done a lot more. Maybe I did not try out a Launch
party. But when I am not immediately looking for membership, not
looking for a software job(as Sankar P suggested in general), not
doing FOSS or even s/w full time, not entirely financially
independent, I'm afraid this will have to make do on my part. If that
is not enough, maybe I'm not suitable for the program. I can step down
if it is so.
P.S.[OT] A little clearer sentence construction would be really helpful.
