Subject: [gentoo-dev] Gentoo Council 2010/2011 - Nominations are now open
Date: Sat, 05 Jun 2010 00:01:01
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:
