LinuxQuestions.org has published an interview with Greg Dekoenigsberg, Community Architect at Red Hat: "We have essentially three layers of governance. The smallest is the Special Interest Group, which is an ad hoc structure that can be formed by any community member; create a wiki page, a mailing list and an IRC channel, and you've got a SIG. The next largest is the Steering Committee, which directs our subprojects (engineering, ambassadors, documentation, etc.) and generally has more structured governance, usually with periodic elections. Finally, there's the Fedora Board, which is partly appointed by Red Hat and partly elected by members of the Fedora community, and is led by the Fedora Project Leader, which is a paid position at Red Hat."
