Fedora Board and FESCo Election Town Halls begin FRIDAY! As in… TODAY!!

Apologies to those who saw my email earlier.  Here’s a recap (aka, cut and paste of what I wrote in email) for those who don’t know yet:

As many of you know, the FESCo and Board elections are right around the corner.

In each election cycle, a series of town hall meetings is conducted to give the community an opportunity to ask the candidates questions – and hear their answers – on IRC.  The town halls for each election are held twice, to allow for participation by community members in varying time zones.

The town hall schedule is as follows:

Friday, May 14, 2010 – FESCo town hall – 16:00 UTC (12:00pm US Eastern)

Monday, May 17, 2010 – Fedora Project Board town hall – 00:00 UTC (8:00pm US Eastern, -SUNDAY-, May 16)

Monday, May 17, 2010 – Fedora Project Board town hall – 17:00 UTC (1:00pm US Eastern)

Wednesday, May 19, 2010 – FESCo town hall – 02:00 UTC (10:00pm US Eastern, -TUESDAY-, May 18)

The town hall schedule, as well as important information about how you can participate in the town halls via IRC, can be seen on the wiki at

I’m hoping for an excellent community turnout for these town halls – I encourage everyone to join in and participate.
