The Fedora Program Manager is responsible for conducting elections for various bodies within Fedora. After each release, the Fedora Council, Mindshare Committee, and Fedora Engineering Steering Committee run elections. Other teams may request elections at any time if they have a need.

The Fedora Community Architect (FCA) is the backup elections wrangler. The FCA & FPgM cannot be candidates for elected positions.

FESCo has a separate election policy that requires more candidates than open seats.

Fedora’s election process is important to our community governance model. Therefore, transparency and trust are vital. This is one area where strictly adhering to the published process is important. Avoid giving the appearance of special treatment to candidates.

At one time, we were hoping to have the Fedora Podcast conduct interviews with candidates as well, but that has fizzled.
A long time ago, we conducted IRC town halls with candidates. We stopped doing that.
