---------- Forwarded Message ----------

I have a couple of questions for you:
* What have you done already for openSUSE?

Well, to begin with, I don’t write nor speak English well;
consequently, I use a lot English translators to get things done. I
have been the organizer and speaker for events promoted by the
openSUSE Community in El Salvador. During the events, I have talked
to 50 to 100 people presenting openSUSE as one of the best
distribution of Linux. The events close by giving away DVDs and
Live-CDs to all participants.

I also work hard helping the members of the openSUSE Community in my
country through the internal email list that we have

I have been participating more in the opensuse-es list, as well as
helping with translation of the distribution.

* What are your plans for promoting openSUSE?
My main plan is to continue promoting the distribution of openSUSE in
events such as talks, conferences, community meetings and email

* Are you ready to start promoting openSUSE?
Yes, I am.

* What do you think is the best kept secret of openSUSE?
I don’t quite understand the question, but I could say that I like
openSUSE because it is not closed, that is, it allows you freedom to
work as an advanced user or as a user with little knowledge of the
operating system.

* Why do you love to do this?
I like to help others in Free Software and why not do it using an
excellent operating system such as this one.

* How did you start with with Linux/openSUSE? What is your level of
I started with Linux/openSUSE by putting together the openSUSE
Community in El Salvador with a small group of Salvadorans around the
year 2006.
I have an experience of around 4 years with openSUSE, but in general
terms with other operating systems, I have more than 10 years.

The ambassador program is currently pretty informal and we expect the
ambassadors to organize themselves. So, please coordinate with other
ambassadors on the opensuse-marketing mailing list:
* share with them what you like to do
* share what you did, e.g. what kind of event did you organize, how
many people joined
* share what you learned, explain what was great at your event, what
you want to improve
* create material that is usefull for you and other ambassadors as

Also, as an ambassador, you're the expert on your country/region, so
please share on the opensuse-marketing mailing list a bit about the
openSUSE and the FOSS community in your country/region, e.g. what are
their needs.

I'd like to send your answers to the opensuse-marketing list and thus
you as new ambassador. Please keep this in mind when answering and if you
don't agree, please tell me!

For adding you to the ambassador list at, please tell me:
