Hello fellow developers and users.
Nominations for the Gentoo Council 2010/2011 are now open for the next
two weeks (until 23:59 UTC, 18/06/2010).
All nominations must be sent to the gentoo-dev mailing list. If you
were nominated and want to run, you have to accept your nomination on
the same mailing list.
Here are the rules:
* Council elections generally happen once a year
* The council is composed of seven elected members
* Nominations are allowed from June 5th 00H00 UTC to June 18th 23H59 UTC
* Only Gentoo developers may be nominated
* Anyone can nominate (nominating yourself is OK)
* Nominees must accept their nomination before voting begins
* Voting is opened from June 20th 00H00 UTC to July 03rd 23H59 UTC
(there is a one day break between nominations and voting so the
infra team has time to set up everything)
* Only Gentoo developers that have joined the project before nomination
starts may vote
* Gentoo uses the Condorcet method of voting
The page listing all nominations is here:
