There has been an amendment to the requirements for candidates to
elected (and appointed) roles in Fedora's Community, including (but not
limited to) the Fedora Board, Fedora Engineering Steering Committee, and
the Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee.

Specifically, candidates must not be a citizen of an export-restricted
country (see
for the list of export restricted countries).

This requirement is applicable immediately, and will apply to candidates
for this upcoming election as well.

Unfortunately, the laws in the United States which Fedora and Red Hat
are subject to place very tight restrictions on the involvement of
citizens of certain countries. Fedora has made its position on this
issue known here:


Thank you for your understanding,

Tom Callaway
