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 ...
