#160 Election Interview Questions - Council
Closed 4 years ago Opened 4 years ago by bex.

In order to move forward with the next election, we need to determine which three mandatory questions the Council would like to have asked. This is the result of the conversation around Council ticket 156 where the role of the questionnaire was explored.

The end result is that we need the Council to please identify the three questions before the end of the year so we can properly communicate them to candidates and so they enough time to answer them.

The link to your current questionnaire is here:


There was mention in the meeting yesterday, that one response to such questions is that a candidate may decline to answer one they deem objectionable. I would explicitly point out that a candidate may choose to ignore, or re-frame what they consider an improper question (as is done all the time in conventional politics)

@herrold I'm hoping we can make them broad enough that that won't be an issue.

I'm suggesting, drawn from combination of the proposed ones:

  • What's your background in Fedora? What expertise do you bring based on past experience, and what projects are you actively involved in now?
  • What do you plan to accomplish on the Council? What are the most pressing issues facing Fedora today? What should we do about them?
  • What are your interests and accomplishments outside of Fedora? What of those things will help you in this role?

Start rephrasing suggestions now :)

I like your phrasing. I hope we can get some additional +1s in this ticket soon as these need to go live on Jan 3.

The three questions above are being used.
