The Fedora Board has unanimously approved the new governance
proposal with all nine Board members voting in support. The Board
would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this process over
the many months it has been under consideration. A lot of work went
into crafting this proposal and in the spirit of the new Council we
worked hard to reach a consensus.
The current Board will continue to perform its duties while it
oversees an orderly transition. The Board will work with FESCo and
FAmSCo to determine the Engineering and Outreach representatives for
the new Council and will hold elections in the near future to
determine the initial two Elected representatives. Once those four
Council members are determined they will join the Fedora Project
Leader and the Fedora Program Manager to form the initial Council. At
that point the Council will take over the governance and leadership
responsibilities for the Fedora Project.
Red Hat will fill the Fedora Community Action and Impact Coordinator
position at some point in the future and the Council will fill the
rest of the positions within the Council as part of its duty.
I'd like to also thank the current and former members of the Fedora
Board for all their service to the Fedora community over the years.
And I'd like to wish the new Fedora Council all the best. You have an
exciting opportunity. Seize it and make the most of it.
