Fedora Server WG Governance

This document describes the governing structure for the Fedora Server WG.

Membership

The Fedora Server Working Group has nine voting members. We encourage involvement in the Server Working Group from any parts of the Fedora Project.

Each voting member of the working group will confirm their continued membership every six months. In the event that a current voting member relinquishes their seat, the remaining voting working group members are responsible for appointing a new voting member to fill the seat from the active Fedora Server community via majority consensus.

Current Members

  • Stephen Gallagher: Representing Server Community and the initial FESCo Liaison
  • David Strauss: Representing Server Community
  • Jim Perrin: Representing Server Community
  • Jóhann B. Guðmundsson: Representing the Fedora QA team
  • Kevin Fenzi: Representing Fedora Infrastructure
  • Miloslav Trmač: Representing Server Community
  • Máirín Duffy: Representative the Fedora Design Team
  • Simo Sorce: Representing Server Community
  • Truong Anh. Tuan: Representing the Fedora Ambassadors

Making Decisions

Because Fedora is a global project, members of the working group may be distributed across multiple timezones. It may be possible to have a real-time IRC meetings or google+ hangouts, but in general we will conduct business on the mailing list or announce either irc meetings or Google+ hangout events in advance should they take place.

Many of our decisions can be made through "lazy consensus";.

Under this model, an intended action is announced on the mailing list, discussed, and if there is no controversy or dissenting views with a few days, simply done.

For bigger issues, where there may be disagreement within the Server WG itself where the necessary quorum is not reach (with 5 members being required for quorum ), or where there is long-term impact, or where an action may not easily be undone, we will schedule an IRC meeting and do the vote live, with participating individual in that meeting having the right to put down vote.

Changing these Rules

This document will be approved by consensus of the initial Server WG members and approved by FESCo. After initial ratification, any substantive changes can be approved by majority vote and sent to FESCo for acceptance.
