* '''Future plans''': It is not hyperbole to say that the Fedora Project is the standard by which all Linux distro projects should be judged. To a significant degree that's a testament to the both the outstanding Fedora community and to its administration by FAmSCo, FESCo and the Fedora Board. I would hope to maintain -- or even surpass -- this high standard by being a Fedora Board member.

We need to make sure to use and enhance the full potential of our community and not slow down or contributors with too much red tape. Decisions should be made on the lowest possible level, that means inside the SIGs and projects and only brought to a committee's attention if consensus cannot be reached. When we are to decide about something, the default answer must be "Yes, we can!". This includes means that the board has to step aside from time to time and trust our contributors.

Currently maintaining the LXDE desktop and Spin, most Xfce and some more stuff, all together ~ 150 packages. I'm also the [[Spins_Process|spins wrangler]] and [[Media_production#EMEA|EMEA media wrangler]]. I was member of FESCo from F12 till F16.

* '''Future plans''': Although I want less bureaucracy and easier workflows, I'd like to establish a new body: The Fedora Council where delegates of all groups and projects in Fedora meet on a regular base. This will not only help us to improve communication but also to make sure all members of the project are equal citizens and get the resources they need to make Fedora a better and greater community.

Revision as of 21:32, 5 November 2011

Important.png
The nomination period is OPEN. The nomination period will close November 5th at 23:59:59 UTC.

This is the nomination page for Fedora Board elections. There is a separate page for the history of Board seats.

In November 2011 there are two seats up for election. The seats open are seat E1 (currently held by Joerg Simon) and E2 (currently held by Jaroslav Reznik).

Jaroslav Reznik (jreznik)

  • Goal statement: the Board should be the transparent body of Fedora
  • Past work summary: current Fedora Board member (E2 seat), Fedora KDE & Fedora system management guy
  • Future plans: to help setting up responsibilities inside the Board (for example to avoid uncertainty who's responsible to run elections and of course it could help gaining more transparency), same should be spread across the whole Fedora Project :) - for SIGs and individuals too, it will help us to behave more transparently. I hope this could attract a new "blood" to Fedora steering veins once people see what Board, FESCo, FAMSCo and other SIGs do.
  • Anything else you want to add: you're all amazing (speaking to all Fedora contributors)

Larry Cafiero (lcafiero)

  • Goal statement: To keep the Fedora Project moving forward, and to give a stronger voice on the Fedora Board to SIGs and non-GNOME spins (Truth in advertising: I primarily use both the KDE and Xfce spins).
  • Past work summary: Fedora Ambassador, 2008-present; former Fedora Ambassador Steering Committee member, resigned May 2011 for personal reasons; Documentation, summer 2011-present.
  • Future plans: It is not hyperbole to say that the Fedora Project is the standard by which all Linux distro projects should be judged. To a significant degree that's a testament to the both the outstanding Fedora community and to its administration by FAmSCo, FESCo and the Fedora Board. I would hope to maintain -- or even surpass -- this high standard by being a Fedora Board member.
  • Anything else you want to add: If you'll permit me a Captain Obvious moment, it's an honor and a privilege both to be a Fedora contributor as well as to work with everyone in the Fedora Project who shares a high commitment to Free/Open Source Software.
