Starting on Monday, November 1, OpenStack willl be holding the community elections for the OpenStack Architecture Board. We have posted a list of twelve nominees on the wiki. You can visit the wiki page to see the list and read a little about each of the candidates:
The voting is open to everyone who has signed the Contributor License Agreement and is a member of one of the OpenStack Launchpad projects. We will be making use of Condorcet Voting Service (http://www.cs.cornell.edu/andru/civs.html) for the election. Those who have signed the Contributor License Agreement and are a member of one of the OpenStack Launchpad projects will be receiving an email on Monday with a link to the online voting system. We will leave the polling open for 48 hours and then announce the results.
As explained on the Governance page of the wiki, there are four seats up for election. After we close the polling, the four candidates who received the most votes will begin serving either a one or two-year term.
Thank you to all the candidates for volunteering for this effort! If any of you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
