There are a few individuals under consideration for the final
appointed Board seat.  This appointment is made after elections are
completed to balance the Board's composition, and represent the entire
Fedora community as much as possible.  Although this appointment is
ultimately up to the Fedora Project Leader to decide, generally the
FPL discusses the appointments with others to achieve a consensus.

Because of the impending holidays, the timing of election returns, and
lower availability of some Red Hat employees due to both the calendar
and recent inclement weather in Westford, I will be delaying the last
appointment until after the holidays, so that I have an opportunity to
talk with people whose opinions I value.  

Since the Board does not meet again until after the New Year, the
current (pre-election) Board will have its final meeting at the public
IRC gathering scheduled for Tuesday, January 6.  The next meeting of
the Board, on Tuesday, January 13, will be the first meeting of the
new Board.
