Freeing up a Fedora Board seat

As you can see from the Fedora Board History, I have held Elected Seat #5 since July 2008, and while I am rather proud of what we have accomplished during my tenure on the Fedora Board, I do not feel that it is healthy for a community to be run by the same people forever and ever. Accordingly, I will not be seeking re-election to the Fedora Board at this time. (I reserve the right to run in a future election, but I have no immediate plans to do so.)

Mohandas Gandhi once said "We need to be the change we wish to see in the world." I believe this is true, so I plan to spend more time working on improving Fedora at a technical level.

Lately, there has been some noise from people who are unhappy with Fedora, and I would encourage those folks to think about running for election to the Fedora Board or the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee. You can put your nomination here: Fedora Board: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Board_nominations
Fedora Engineering Steering Committee: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Development/SteeringCommittee/Nominations

Remember, Fedora is not a dictatorship (benevolent or otherwise), it is a community, and running for FESCo or the Board is an excellent way to have your voice heard.
