first of all: I don't want to attack anybody personal here. I'm very
sorry if you, Robert, or anybody else, feels attacked. This is
really not my intention! I'm trying to explain my impression of the
whole thing and some reactions I got or recognized @community.

Censorship is not my own word here. I wanted to show you how some
people think about that and thus used the word they used. (And I
already wrote that I have to number for "some" and wrote that is it
Again, here I'm reporting about some opinions I got (I thought I
already mentioned that in my previous mail?). But to be honest it
was hard for to me understand the selection here, especially in the
beginning (and still have no 100% awareness here). I believe others
don't understand that too. Then I indeed read the rules and found
that it is hard to apply them as mentioned somewhere in a previous
mail. People who voted for the other candidates feel upset now as
their candidates are not considered. "Bad faith" is also in this
context. That is why I think the community needs some kind of
explanation (short, not long tickets or mails) to be able to get an
idea of what is going on here. I want to clear up the situation, to
avoid things like bad faith, nothing else.
I meant whole FAmSCo in my mail, maybe I should have written this
more clear. As I wrote I believe that everyone wants the best for
Fedora. For "bad faith" see above.
Maybe transparent is not the best word here as everything is open.
What I mean: There are discussions for weeks now, tickets are long,
meeting logs are long. It took me hours to really understand what is
going on. People get snippets of the situation and build their
opinion without a complete picture of the situation. OK, that always
happens everyday, everywhere. But we can lower that effect by
providing information that is short enough to read within some
minutes and that is easier to get (in sense of understandaing) IMHO
it would be nice if FAmSCo writes short reports about the situation
in general and the progress to the ambassadors mailing list (or is
there a better place?). This would really help to get more objective
opinions as it is easier to get the situation. Of course there
always will be other opinions, but that's not a result of missing
(in sense of people did not read the whole stuff) information
anymore and thus fine and especially a different case.
