First of all, I'd like to appreciate all - including Martin Lasarsch ! -
who made noble efforts to organize this program.

However, to be honest, this program doesn't attract me so much and I'm
not tempted to become an Ambassador ATM. I want to explain why I think so.

What do Ambassadors Do?

As long as I read the Wiki page, listed sample tasks for Ambassadors are

of the GPs.

If someone wants to become an Ambassador but don't like to sign the GPs,
is he or she able to be or eligible for an Ambassador ?
