To fill the final open seat on the Board for the next two releases, I am appointing Colin Walters. Colin has spent several years developing technology and community in the GNOME Project and around the varied landscape of Fedora's desktop. He brings to the Board a constructive, positive spirit to solving problems in Fedora and upstream. His recent work on advancing ideas and code for a unique but highly usable personality for the free desktop is also very exciting.
After getting the chance to meet and talk with him at FUDCon, I am sure he will be an excellent addition to the Board. I hope the Fedora community will join me in welcoming Colin, where he joins Chris Tyler as our other new member for this cycle. The new Board will meet for the first time tomorrow in a public IRC meeting, on Thursday 7 January 2010, at 1700 UTC (12:00 noon US-Eastern). Departing, current, and new Board members are all expected at the meeting. Details about joining the IRC meeting are found here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Board/IRC As I've written before, the Board always welcomes community input. Please feel free to join the fedora-advisory-board mailing list to start a discussion if needed, or you may email us at any time with questions or issues. https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-advisory-board -- Paul W.
