Several forum users have brainstormed about creating a forum
ambassador team. This team is intended to improve communication between
the forum users and ubuntu developers in way that is manageable for the

We have already incorporated some dev feedback during UDS-mtv. Currently
we are at a phase were we can't improve the document much more by

This document specifies how to improve communication (bugs, ideas, forum
users feedback) between the forums and the developers. The idea is to
elect Forum Ambassadors and/or have a special forum for this to help to
improve communication.

We will create a forum section on where people can
request help of the Forum Ambassadors or convey their opinions in a
constructive, concise and useful way (see design).

A team of Forum Ambassadors will connect to the developers to facilitate
communication. We will use ambassadors to collect ideas, bugs and
feedback from users. This team would probably connect to developers via
a mailing list, with possibly some irc contact.

This idea originated on the forums. This idea was originally by Aysiu
but many people have contributed to this spec. The current forum
discussion is here : [WWW]

Our intended target is that the Forum Ambassadors become a team like :
[WWW] (If this doesn't
happen we will become a 3rd party section)
