Re: FESCo future

And honestly, I use the word "honestly" way too much.  Honestly.

My $0.02 on the structure of the F-star board:

No mandate of RH/non-RH seats.  At all.  Pure meritocracy.

It's time to put this model to the test. If the packaging community has any sense, and I believe they do, then they will elect a healthy number of Redhatters to F-star -- because if they don't, it will be *much* more difficult to accomplish *anything*. It's in everyone's best interest to put Redhatters on the F-star board. I believe that the community understands that.

At the same time, if a particular Redhatter becomes a belligerent jackass, then the community is fully empowered to boot that Redhatter right the hell out of the project. I don't expect this ever to be the case, honestly, because I think our community is comprised of grown-ups. But the safeguard is important.

Honestly, we've already got strong controls at the Fedora Project Board level. If things go terribly wrong with F-Star, the process for correction is simple: the Grand Poobah puts a bullet in the whole damned thing. The cost of such a failure would be enormous for everyone involved, though, and for that reason I suspect that it will never happen.

What are we afraid of?

Let's make sure that there is a mention that if a non-rh member takes a
job at rh that they don't lose their seat immediately. Only at the next
set of elections will their present employment be taken into account.

does that reasonable?

Hmm, that okay for me, but I suspect some people won't like it. I had
something like the next para in my first local draft, but I threw it out
before sending it to the list as I thought "not important enough" ;-)

An additional non-rh member is appointed if a non-rh member gets a job
at rh and due to that less than 50% of the seats would be filled by
non-rh members.
