Fedora Autumn Elections 2017

As Fedora 27 has already been released, we run Fedora Autumn Elections 2017 electing members to three main leadership groups in Fedora: the Fedora Council, the Fedora Mindshare Committee, and the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo).

The Fedora Council is the top-level community leadership and governance body. The Council is a mix of representatives from different areas of the project, named roles appointed by Red Hat, and a variable number of seats connected to medium-term project goals. Decision-making is a consensus process, where the Council works together as a common team to find shared solutions and address concerns, with a focus on giving voice than on balance of power.

Additionally, the Fedora Mindshare Comittee represents the outreach leadership in Fedora. Mindshare aims to help outreach teams to reach their targets in a more effective way, by unifying and sharing their working process through an optimized and standardized communication. It consists of mostly appointed, but also elected members.

Lastly, the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee, or FESCo, provides technical leadership and guidance in Fedora. Furthermore, FESCo handles the process of accepting new features, accepting new packaging sponsors, Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and SIG Oversight, the packaging process, handling and enforcement of maintainer issues and other technical matters related to the distribution and its construction. All of the FESCo seats are also elected by the community.

Fedora Council FAD Report – 2017/2018 Initial Steps

The Fedora Council met for an in-person FAD for three days from 26-28 March in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. Almost the entire Council was able to attend. Josh Boyer, Brian Exelbierd, Robert Mayr, Matthew Miller, and Langdon White, were present, and unfortunately, Jan Kuřik and María Leandro could not make it. We chose Grand Rapids to accommodate one of the two members with travel challenges and to reduce overall travel costs for the rest of us.

We set a full agenda and managed to discuss the topics over the three full days.

January 2017 Elections Retrospective Report

In this election cycle, the voter turnout is above its average level. It is great news as it shows increased interest of the Fedora people in community affairs.

This election cycle was hit by some planning issues as we were running the Elections over Christmas 2016 period. At the beginning I was worrying about the turnout due to the Christmas, but fortunately this was odd and we are more than good from this point of view.
