So something more exact then timezone, locale and country or could this
metric bet completely independent of those values?

Another note on that, if we split up the ambassadors into regions (I
suspect they already are) would it be better to just create a group for
each region managed by the ambassadors?

We could possibly do this by using the 'myfedora' application
namespace that already exists in the FAS person config model. Each user
in the db can have a list of configs for a variety of different apps
(currently hardcoded to asterisk, moin, myfedora, and openid).

For MyFedora we were thinking about storing various widget settings in
this field, but the namespace has not yet been decided on.

I'm not familiar with the FAS codebase, but we may be able to do
something like this::

from fas.model import Person, Configs

Person.configs.append(
Configs(application='myfedora',
value="{
'tags' : ['FUDCon2008Boston'],
'skills': ['python', 'c++', 'trolling'],
'karma' : -8,
}"))
