Because right now we're asking that people step up as ambassadors based on certain characteristics, but their individual skills and what they excel at isn't recognised. I think there's more to them than just being proficient in a certain language and being available to carry feedback back and from their home wikis. I think being able to identify who is capable of doing what (à la https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:VisualEditor/Community_Taskforce ) will be the key to the group growth and to their affirmation as experts in certain areas.
The real issue here is that the "sign up yourself" model is just. not. working. That's the obstacle we need to remove, if you ask me.
@Trizek-WMF this is clearly one of the next phases of the work for Ambassadors, in order for this group of people to become autonomous and self-sustained. I believe that we had already discussed that touching base with Asaf re: potential next communities to target, and now you could add as a topic the intersection between our program and what he's trying to do leveraging the tech skills of certain communities.
