Evil planning and world domination to continue for six more months

That’s right, meta-evil planning continues right here, as I remain appointed to the Fedora Project Board. There was only one appointed seat remaining, and through legerdemain, geomancy, and the deployment of the correct team(s) of evil minions engaged in doing my bidding … well, let’s just say it was no contest.

To quote myself:

And I hope they take that option!

Aside from the chance to yet again be the sacrificial lamb who represents Shadowman, I really wanted to keep myself out of the election this time. Too many incumbents and people with high visibility makes it harder for newer folks to get elected, by drawing votes and attention away.

Then, if I still feel like doing this, I can run next time when all my most electable colleagues are already in their seats, leaving me room to receive a 100% vote mandate!

World domination and Fedora-based femmebots, here I come!!!

Yes, oh, yes.
