I am not a FAmSCo member, but this thread is now on ambassadors list.
The only reason I am replying (when most of the answers have already
been given By Neville and Caius) because it is really annoying when
people use private communications in an open community to get things
done and when it does not work, make it public and cry foul.
You can't control our local decisions as we have freedom in
person who represent from Sri Lanka.
No representation is better than sending such a person.
As far as I know ans as pointed out by others, there is no such thing
as local/country representation in FAmSCo. It would be absolutely fine
if three (or ten) people run for FAmSCo from a country. Ambassadors
does not represent a country, they represent Fedora.
If you want someone to run, nominate. Don't try to drag others from
running. It is as simple as that.
It was NOT a communication mistake!
If not, it is worse. That will mean there is really a lack of
understanding about how things work in Fedora community. I would
suggest this reading.
Contribution is not about the how much you make noise on Fedora list
I am really disappointed about your poor decision and I have been working
for several year for Fedora (more than 5years).
We have done much work but never fool the community. and
If I was him I wont come back to the election.
Well, it's not really fair to impose your decisions on someone.
According to election page, "Candidates may be any member of the
Ambassadors group in the Fedora Accounts System.". You can certainly
him if you are not comfortable with his candidature, but he is absolutely within
his rights to run for FAmSCo.
We kindly asked to withdraw Sri Lankan Ambassadors own nomination as
was a bad thing happened in here (LK).
What bad thing are you talking about? Not uploading pictures? Yes,
it's bad, but its certainly not a "fraud", because no money was
But now he or some one else put his name again.
Which, according to Fedora's rules, is absolutely fine.
We (Sri Lankan community talked with some of the Fedorians privately
think its time to make this public.
(sorry about that)
Yes, back channels should not exist in Fedora. It should have been
transparent from the beginning. The only reason I am writing this
You have full freedom to do what ever you prefer at the election
Please please....think before cast your vote.
Bye for now. (I am leaving from FUDcon)
What has this has to do with your leaving FUDCon? Or is this a protest of your
voice (even if it was in contrast with the rules) not being heard?
