As you all know, the Fedora Board consists of 9 seats -- 5 appointed by
Red Hat and 4 elected by the community.
After Fedora 7's release, 6 of those 9 seats rotated -- 3 appointed and
Now that Fedora 8 has been released, the other 3 seats need to rotate --
2 of the appointed ones, and 1 elected seat.
Bill Nottingham is going to remain on the Fedora Board in an appointed
seat. The second appointment will be made soon -- Chris Blizzard has
stepped aside from the Fedora Board, and we are looking at a couple of
different ideas for his seat.
We only have 1 elected seat open this time around, but I wanted to kick
off the process for filling it.
Last time, the community elected Dennis Gilmore, Jef Spaleta, and Chris
Aillon to the Fedora Board -- all superb choices.
The URL above contains all the necessary information. Nominations are
open until December 6th.
