As you may have heard already, several seats of the Fedora Board, FESCo,
and FAMSCO are up for election soon(¹). Right now we are in the
nomination period, which will be followed by a "Candidate
Questionnaire." That means we'll give candidates a list of questions to
answer by private mail within one week after the nomination period
closed; the results will be publish soon after that to make sure they
are available to the public before the Town Hall meetings on IRC happen.

Candidates may choose to answer (or not) those questions as they see
fit. Voters can use the answers to get an impression of what the
candidate think or plan to do while serving for the committees they are
nominated for. That should help to get a interesting discussion running
during the IRC Town Hall meetings; furthermore, those people that can't
or don't want to participate in the IRC meetings can use the answers to
make a more informed vote.

Hence we need to prepare a few good questions that we can send to the
candidates once the nomination period ends. And that's where I need
*your help* now:

If you have one or more questions you'd like to send to the candidates
simply go and add them to:


It just takes a minute or two, so best to do it right now -- otherwise
you might get distracted and forget about it. ;-)

I'll take care of the remaining work to review, sort, and clean up the
questions(²); after that I'll send them to the candidates soon after the
nomination period ended. Hence, I need your question suggestions by
around the 15th November 17:00 UTC latest to get a chance to prepare
everything in time.

So please go to the wiki now and add at least one hard question! The
answers will help Fedora contributors to chose whom to vote for! Thanks
in advance for your help .


(¹) If you haven't read about it yet see

(²) If you want to get involved or review the questions before I send
them please drop me a line and I'll try to get that arranged; maybe we
can arrange a quick, informal IRC meeting on Sunday evening if there is
