|Subject:||Change in requirements for Board, FESCo, and FAmSCo candidates|
|Date:||Mon, 16 May 2011 10:53:49 -0400|
There has been an amendment to the requirements for candidates to elected (and appointed) roles in Fedora's Community, including (but not limited to) the Fedora Board, Fedora Engineering Steering Committee, and the Fedora Ambassadors Steering Committee. Specifically, candidates must not be a citizen of an export-restricted country (see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal/Export#Embargoed_Des... for the list of export restricted countries). This requirement is applicable immediately, and will apply to candidates for this upcoming election as well. Unfortunately, the laws in the United States which Fedora and Red Hat are subject to place very tight restrictions on the involvement of citizens of certain countries. Fedora has made its position on this issue known here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Embargoed_nations Thank you for your understanding, Tom Callaway Fedora Legal -- announce mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/announce
