I don't see a particular benefit in having elections for this kind of thing.
The people who are involved in Fedora media efforts are there because
they've been working on podcasts, videos, art, etc., and I don't see a need to
have a select committee.
I don't really want to emphasize anything for or against my own ideas, I
simply wanted to suggest there is a whole lot of space for empowering
people rather than putting limits on people. I'm sure other people may
have ideas that are more relevant.
That is not a criticism of the policy or the existing efforts people are
My suggestion to allow time for wider consultation was not an attempt to
make it go away, quite the opposite, I feel that it is important to talk
about how communications works in any community. Having that discussion
