Re: FESCo election nominations now open



Or, for a more concrete metaphor...

All Americans have the right to vote.  But Europeans who just pop in
on vacation do not.

Likewise, random internet denizens who just show up (even predictably
and dedicatedly) and post mailing-list messages should have no special
privilege to vote for Fedora's direction and leadership.

A democracy is not open to everyone -- it merely defines equality
_within_ a predefined group (of citizens, of community members, etc).
