"Fedora project leader Paul Frields has announced a change in the way 
the Fedora board is elected; as of the upcoming election, five of the 
nine seats will be elected by the community, while four will be 
appointed by Red Hat. So Red Hat will no longer select a majority of the 
board. "This is an issue I've been advocating over the past couple of 
weeks, and I'm delighted to be able to make this change following my 
first release as Fedora Project Leader. I look at this as a significant 
step in the evolution of the Board and Fedora's governance overall.It's 
worth noting that the Fedora leader (who must still be a Red Hat 
employee) retains veto power over board decisions. "
