This Wednesday at Noon CST, the OpenStack Governance Elections Nominations process will close and all approved candidates will be entered into the Election Tool. Elections will run from August 25 – September 4 at Noon CST.
The following four separate votes will be conducted during this election cycle:
- NOVA Project Team Lead (1 Position)
- SWIFT Project Team Lead (1 Position)
- GLANCE Project Team Lead (1 Position)
- Project Policy Board (3 Open Seats)
In addition, Eric Day has resigned his seat on the PPB with a term ending Spring 2012. To fill his seat for the next 6 months, the 4th place vote getter in the Project Policy Board election will replace Eric and complete his term. This process change simplifies having to run a special election for his seat. Please contact me if you have any questions on this process for replacing Eric on the board.
Each election has a separate policy for who can vote in the election. A complete review of this process can be found at http://www.openstack.org/blog/2011/08/openstack-governance-elections-coming-soon/. To be eligible to vote, please ensure that you meet these requirements by Noon CST on Wednesday August 25th.
The current list of nominees is available at http://etherpad.openstack.org/Fall2011-Nominees. If you are interested in being a nominee, please add yourself by Wednesday August 25th by Noon CST at which time nominations will close.
