Well, I can understand that for major changes but I see no reason to
consider making any major changes at this time. I really just wanted
to know if ambassadors were generally satisfied and at this point I
think they are. I did not expect a lot of feedback, but working to
incrementally improve our election process I think is worthwhile.

rules as defined on the wiki just need some small adjustments to be in
harmony with the way all the Fedora elections are now organized in
terms of the timing of things. Perhaps we can address some of the more
cosmetic suggestions made in this thread as well. These are all very
minor things. I can write up a new proposed wiki page but I think
making these changes is something FAmSCo can approve or not for future
elections without any big fuss.
