Each group participating in the election will attempt to host one Town Hall forum on IRC.  Each will last one hour, or less if there are no further questions.

No Town Halls are being held this time. Instead we're running campaign and part of it are Fedora Magazine interviews. It's hard to schedule Town Halls (different schedules, timezones etc.) and it prolongs elections itself.
