Kubuntu Council Elections 2018 - Call for Nominations
Recognizing the urgency and short window, and on the assumption that all three are willing to continue serving, I nominate Myriam Schweingruber, Philip Muškovac, and Valorie Zimmerman to serve on the Kubuntu Council.
Unfortunately, we overlooked that three (3) of our Kubuntu Council members are expiring shortly!
The terms for the following Council members are due to expire on the 2nd September 2018:
Myriam Schweingruber Philip Muškovac Valorie Zimmerman
I hereby call for nominations for the Kubuntu Council to elect three (3) members and hope that Myriam Schweingruber, Philip Muškovac, Valorie Zimmerman will continue to serve until we have the names of the new Council members.
I will update the Kubuntu Calendar to reflect these new dates.
The term is for two years, spanning 2nd September 2018 to 2nd September 2020.
As in the past, the election will be conducted using CIVS (Condorcet Internet Voting Service) - http://www.cs.cornell.edu/andru/civs.html and the top three ranking vote recipients will be elected.
Nomination period: Now to the 25th August 2018 Ballot Preparation: 25th August to the next day Voting Period: 25th August 1st September End Poll/Results Announced: 1st September New Term Begins: 2nd September 2018
This schedule shortens all the timelines. Please nominate yourselves or others quickly, so we can get to voting quickly.
The above deadlines may be subject to minor revision, and a follow up email will give details if this is so. However, nominations open NOW so please be as prompt as possible.
Please mention what you would like to accomplish within the Kubuntu project (Why people should vote for you)
All Kubuntu Members ( https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-members/+members ) are eligible to be nominated and to vote. If you have a public email address in Launchpad, you need take no further action to receive your voting ballot. If you do not have a public email address, please contact me off-list with the address you'd like your ballot sent to, otherwise you will be unable to vote.
All Kubuntu members are eligible. The Kubuntu Council is intended to represent all of the Kubuntu community. Applications from involved non-developers are encouraged. If you are nominating someone else, please confirm their willingness to serve before nominating them. Nominations should be done in public via either kubuntu-users or kubuntu-devel mailing lists. If there is some extraordinary reason that precludes that, contact me directly.
The Kubuntu Council is the leadership body of Kubuntu. Members of the council are expected to be active in the Kubuntu community/project. It has three primary roles:
- Approve development plans for future Kubuntu releases - Approve Kubuntu membership applications - Resolve disputes within the Kubuntu project
The time commitment is not large. Meetings are generally only once every several months and conducted via IRC. However, we do need the Kubuntu Council to lead the community, not sit back and only attend meetings.
If there are questions, you can contact us via this mailing list or (if really necessary) via direct mail. We can also be found on Freenode IRC in #kubuntu, #kubuntu-council or #kubuntu-devel
Many thanks to all and please remember "time is of the essence".
Happy nominating and voting,
Rik Mills Kubuntu Council
