The Fedora Packaging Committee has some open seats and is accepting
submissions from interested candidates to serve on the FPC.
The FPC would like to thank Orion Poplawski, and Jonathan Wakely for
This position involves not only reviewing Packaging Guideline drafts
submitted to the FPC for consideration, but also helping rewrite drafts
to resolve issues in a more acceptable fashion. Additionally, the FPC
reviews UID/GID soft static assignment.
Currently the FPC meets on IRC weekly, on Thursdays based around 12:00
east coast US time, for approximately an hour.
That can change slightly, but any new time would need to be good for
all the members (East Coast US and German TZs, at least).
FPC members serve for as long as they are willing, there are currently
no term limits. All decisions are voted on using a +1 (for), 0
(abstain), and -1 (against) mechanism, and all decisions must be
approved by a majority (+5). FPC Meetings do not happen if a quorum (5
members) is not present. Candidates who are interested should provide
the following details to the FPC for consideration, by emailing it
directly to me (james(a)fedoraproject.org
The FPC will consider all candidates, but strongly prefers candidates
who have extensive experience packaging in Fedora. Due to the current
environment we will be accepting applications for the next _five_ weeks
(deadline Wednesday, 2018-06-24).
