What questions would you like to ask the Fedora Board or FESCo Candidates?

Several seats of the Fedora Board and FESCo are up for election soon(¹). Right now we are in the nomination period, which will be followed by a "Candidate Questionnaire." That means we give candidates a list of questions to answer by mail before the Town Hall meetings on IRC happen.

Candidates may choose to answer (or not) those questions as they see fit. Voters can use the answers to get an impression of what the candidate think or plan to do while serving for the Board or FESCo. That should help to get a interesting discussion running during the IRC Town Hall meetings. Furthermore, those people that can't or don't want to participate in the IRC meetings can use the answers to make a more informed vote.

Hence we need to prepare a few good questions that we can send to the candidates once the nomination period ends. And that's where I need *your help*: If you have one or more questions you'd like to send to the candidates simply go and add them to:


It just takes a minute or two, so best to do it right now -- otherwise you might get distracted and forget about it. ;-)

I'll take care of the remaining work to review, sort, and clean up the questions(²), and send them to the candidates after the nomination period ends. Hence, I need them by around the 27th of May. I'll later collect the answers from the candidates and put them up for pubic consumption to give people enough time to read them before the town hall meetings start.

So go to the wiki and add at least one hard question! The answer will help Fedora contributors to chose whom to vote for!

Thanks for your help in advance.

(²) If you want to get involved or review the questions before I send them please drop me a line and I'll try to get that arranged
