How about the bigger question, what percentage of FESCo has been Red Hat employees during any term. After all it is FESCo that really matters what is in Fedora, not the board. I would track this out myself but the use of non at redhat email addresses makes it hard, even asking the candidates in Election town halls you get the run around commonly. "Who I work for doesn't matter." How many times have we heard that?
