Dear Member,

You are receiving this email as you are a member of the Gentoo 
Foundation Inc. The Foundation is legally obliged to notify its 
members of some events.

Polling for the three Trustee vacancies is now open. See the in lined 
email from the Elections project.

In accordance with the Gentoo Foundation Inc. bylaws the membership 
list will be pruned after this election. Any member who has failed to 
cast a vote in two successive Trustee elections will be dropped from 
the list of members. For the purpose of this rule, the last election 
was held in 2009, there being no ballot in 2010.

Members who have joined since the 2009 election are not affected as 
they have not had the opportunity to vote in two successive Trustee
