Re-appointment to the Fedora Board and reminder of upcoming elections

The Fedora Board consists of five elected seats and four appointed
seats.  In this elections cycle, there will be two openings for
appointed Board seats and two openings for elected Board seats.  As
part of the normal Board succession process[0], one Board appointment
is made before Board elections and the other is made after the
election cycle has ended.

I'm happy to announce that Toshio Kuratomi has agreed to serve in his
appointed Board seat for another term.  He has served well for the
past year, and I look forward to serving with him in the year to come.
 Toshio currently serves in seat A1 (see the Board History[1] for a
list of the seats).

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have
served on either the Board or the various steering committees.  You
help make the world of free and open source software better with your

Elections for the Fedora Board, FAmSCo, and FESCo will begin on
November 23rd at UTC 0001, as shown on the Fedora wiki's Elections
page[2].  All community members are encouraged to cast their vote
until the elections close at the end of the day (UTC time) on December
5th.  Within a week or two of the end of elections, another
appointment will be made for the remaining Board seat (seat A2).  If
you are interested in serving on the Fedora Board, please don't
hesitate to contact me directly to indicate your willingness.
