Fedora Election Town Halls – Come one come all!

Fedora is gearing up for its next round of elections.  Three groups are electing members over the next several weeks:

  • Fedora Project Board is electing two members
  • Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo) is electing four members
  • Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee (FAMSCo) is electing all seven members

As requested by several Fedora members, the candidates in these elections are participating in a series of Town Hall discussions on IRC.  This is your opportunity to ask them as a group anything you would like.  Want to hear what they think is Fedora’s biggest challenge, and how they will solve it?  Join us and ask!

Schedule is as follows:

  • Friday December 5, 2008 02:00 UTC (9pm US Eastern on Thursday) Fedora Board
  • Friday December 5, 2008 15:00 UTC (10am US Eastern) Fedora Board
  • Friday December 5, 2008 17:00 UTC (12pm US Eastern) FESCo
  • Saturday December 6, 2008 17:00 UTC (12pm US Eastern) FAMSCo

To attend, join the #fedora-townhall and #fedora-townhall-public rooms on irc.freenode.net.   A moderator will be on hand in both rooms to help the conversation flow.  Candidates may speak in #fedora-townhall, while everyone may ask questions in #fedora-townhall-public.  The moderator will copy questions from the -public room into the -townhall room.

Please use these opportunities to educate yourselves about the candidates for office, so that you may make an informed vote.

Voting begins on Sunday, December 7 and runs through Saturday, December 20.

Further details, including the list of candidates and their backgrounds, are available at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Elections.
