I would certainly be interested in taking part in FESCO, though I doubt 
my current level of presence and suitability in Fedora Extras is 
probably not up to par with others, but I do think you would find the 
right people easily enough.

Who says that someone _has_ to go at the end of 6months? Can they not be 
re-elected if they have been nominated?
