This has been pointed out to me in the past -- every culture handles the
idea of self promotion differently.  For some cultures, stepping forward
from the crowd to promote yourself as a leader is very hard.  For other
cultures, it is common to promote yourself as a leader.

The kind of voting/democracy that we use in Fedora is derived from a
Western history and culture.  We need to keep that in mind.  What we
require of people in order to get into a position of leadership may not
be appropriate in their culture.

No easy solutions, unfortunately ...
