Hmm, that swings the pendulum very far in the other direction. The
first two questions are about the candidate, and the last is about
a very specific facet of community collaboration. There is no general
question about current challenged or Fedora direction. Can we please
include something like that too?

Do you suggest dropping #1 or 2, or adding a fourth question?

Speaking for myself as an individual, I'm not convinced the current challenges-type questions are entirely useful. In my experience, they mostly serve as a way for candidates to express frustration but don't result in proactive changes. I see the first question implicitly including that question, so what if we made it more explicit:

1. Why do you want to be a member of FESCo? How do you expect to help steer the direction of Fedora?

(I don't love the wording, so I'll keep giving it some thought, but that's the general idea)
