One point -- currently, the eligible voters and the candidate pool
coincide.  I'm assuming that we are talking about keeping that aspect
the same (rather than letting anyone with a CLA_done be a candidate
while only cvsextras can vote.)  When the policy was ratified by FESCo,
this was a point that was debated and can be found in the Meeting
Archives [1]_.

With that in mind I think Brian Pepple's list of FESCo responsibilities
[2]_ is a good starting place as it lists the areas of Fedora that FESCo
has direct control over.  Other areas FESCo may influence but they do
not have responsibility for or control.

Basically, you should be able to vote if you are under FESCo's
authority.  You should not be able to vote if you are not.
