if you want to look to a model then look to Ubuntu Local Teams
Can you explain more?
I thought you'd never ask

Quick comment:

IMO the way the Marcons structure was at was passive, you
setup a list of individuals as contacts in local areas and then they
waited for something to happen.

What the Ubuntu Local Team approach does is say, you must demonstrate
that there is:

1 - more then one person in an area as a contact
2 - these people are actively engaged in local activities
3 - REQUIRE feedback from these people on a regular basis
[This has to be both a carrot / stick approach, heavy on the carrot]

in other words, and I realize only my POV, it seemed that the Marcon
model was passive, where as the Local Team approach is pro-active.

Fabian Rodriquez made what I thought were good points along these lines
a few months back, I think on the fr mailing list (discuss?) and I'll go
look for that for a reference for this thread.

A powerful model, thx Drew
