Linux, musical road-dogging, and daily life by Paul W. Frields
New addition.

New addition.

I was very pleased to make this announcement on Tuesday night: Harald Hoyer has been selected by Red Hat to fill one of the appointed seats opening on the Fedora Board.

The Board and I are very excited to have someone from Red Hat’s Stuttgart office representing the European Red Hat and Fedora community. Harald’s pages talk more about his very extensive technical background, but I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from him shortly about his outlook for the next twelve months as a Board member.

I’ve since found out that Harald is going to be at LinuxTag next week, so I’m looking forward to meeting him in person then. Welcome to the Board, Harald!

As the message also states, Karsten Wade is staying on for another release to even out the elections. Red Hat will announce its final appointment after the elections end, so we can balance the skills and backgrounds on the Board properly. In the long run that means decisions are made after consideration from many points of view across the entire Fedora community, and better representation for all the constituents.

Nominations continue until as late as the 12th of June — if you’re interested in running for a Board seat, please fill out the Nominations page, and hit the campaign trail! (It is the season, after all.)
