US Presidential election should be over in about a week, give or take
the lawyers and press coverage.  I don't expect any Fedora
contributors are so involved with those that they couldn't take a few
minutes between now and December 3 to add their name to a nomination
list should they so choose.

Thanks for bringing that up again.  I'll be happy to try to coordinate
several town-hall style IRC "debates" for each of the various
elections, if people think that would help considerably in trying to
decide whom to vote for.  I personally find most IRC meetings to be
very low bandwidth (e.g. I could get 4x more done in the same time if
not using IRC).  But I'm open to be swayed (and note, it's not really
up to me, I'm just kicking off the conversation).  (moderated)
conference calls and/or VOIP are also possible.

I'd hope we get enough nominations for each elected position that a
healthy debate, IRC or otherwise, would be beneficial to the
electorate. But I don't anticipate needing more than one debate per
elected group, do you?
