The results are posted on the Fedora Voting Application and announced on the mailing lists. You can also find the full list of winning candidates below.

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.

List of Flock blogs and more

If you’d like to get a bigger picture view, you can read a pre-conference interview with a few Flock speakers here or with Thomas Cameron here.

Days 3 and 4 were reserved for workshops. Also, during these 2 days, people continued to split into smaller groups to discuss matters of their own interests, and so did I. However, I caught up with some of the presenters to ask them about the outcome of their sessions and you can read that at the end of this article. But to be fair – if you want to read something about Flock, feel free to browse the blogs that emerged in the first post-Flock week, listed here:

You’re invited: FOSCo Brainstorm Meeting, 2016-07-18, 13:00 UTC

For some time now, Fedora has discussed the idea of the Fedora Outreach Steering Committee (FOSCo), a body to coordinate all our outreach efforts. Now it’s time to make it happen!

FOSCo brainstorming: you’re invited!

On behalf of FAmSCo and the Fedora Council, we would like to invite the Fedora community to an all-hands.

Roll call

So far, the following participants have confirmed attendance.

The fact that we already have a good team of volunteers should not stop you from attending. In fact, we would like to hear more voices from all stakeholders. The more, the better! To get an idea what FAmSCo has been working on so far, please have a look at the wiki page and current status.

None of this is set in stone yet, and we feel we need your input before we go any further. We are looking forward to your comments and to meet you next Monday!

Elections Retrospective, 2015

The results are in! The Fedora Elections for the F23 release cycle of FESCo, FAmSCo, and the Council concluded on Tuesday,  December 15th. The results are posted on the Fedora Voting Application and announced on the mailing lists. You can also find the full list of winning candidates below. Taking inspiration from Pingou‘s blog post “FESCo vote history“,  I would also like to share some interesting statistics in this 2015 Elections Retrospective.

2015 Elections Retrospective Report

In short, voter turnout has improved in all races, and while no records have been broken, the numbers are back to our typical higher levels. A direct correlation was seen between days when we advertised voting and our most active voting days. Incumbency was a big factor in each race (all incumbent candidates were re-elected) and voters showed confidence in the candidates who were previous position-holders.
