This past week, David Strauss chose to step down from his position on the Fedora Server Working Group, citing a lack of alignment with his current work usage. The Fedora Server SIG would like to thank David for his contributions up to this point and wish him well.

This means that there is currently a vacancy in the Fedora Server Working Group. The Working Group is the nine-person volunteer body that oversees the development, testing, release, documentation, marketing and evangelism of the Fedora Server. Membership on this Working Group is a moderate commitment requiring a participation of a minimum of two hours a week, one hour of which being the (usually) weekly meeting.

Membership on the Fedora Server Working Group does not require you to be a developer, tester or administrator. Anyone who is interested in advancing any of the Fedora Server’s goals is eligible to self-nominate. Document-writers, translators, Fedora Ambassadors, end-users and anyone else can become a part of this team.

If you feel that you are interested in becoming more involved with the Fedora Server, we encourage you to self-nominate by joining the Fedora Server mailing list and sending a self-introduction and nomination email to that list. We will have open nominations from now until Tuesday, December 9th, where we will vote on the new member at the weekly meeting.

If you self-nominate but aren’t selected to serve on the Working Group, do not fret! The Server SIG is open to all and the Working Group will always listen to your advice and concerns, so please stick around! While the Working Group is the final authority and voting body when disagreements come up or official decisions (like branding) need to be made, we are not the only people working on the Fedora Server. The Server SIG is small today, but growing. We would very much like to have you join us.
