Subject: [gentoo-nfp] New Trustee voting proposal (including _reopen_nominations)
Date: Wed, 18 Apr 2018 05:18:31
1 Hi, everyone.
3 Here's an imperfect proposal that aims to make everyone (un)happy
4 by combining the different requirements into a consistent system
5 for Trustee elections:
7 1. Elections can have up to 2 nomination+voting rounds. If the first
8 round does not fill all the seats, a second (shorter) round is run.
9 If the second round does not fill all the remaining seats, Trustees
10 appoint the seats as they do now.
12 2. The elections start early to account for the possibility
13 of the additional second round. If elections finish on the first round,
14 the new Trustees wait for the start of their term.
16 3. Both rounds include additional options -- '_reopen_nominations'
17 for the first round, and '_appoint_by_trustees' for the second. Only
18 candidates that get voted above those options are immediately accepted
19 into the seats. The remaining candidates can still be (s)elected
20 in the next step.
22 4. Voting is held when there's at least one nominee. If there are
23 no nominees in the round, the voting phase is skipped and the next step
24 is run immediately.
26 5. The recording date is to be determined by Trustees, independently,
27 but will occur no later than 2 months before the AGM (requested
28 by robbat2).
30 The idea is that the proposal includes all of it: an explicit ability
31 to vote against a nominee, second round to give people additional chance
32 to accept nominations if the first round does not bring satisfying
33 candidates, and fixed timeline + the ability of Trustees to fill slots
34 in order to make sure that the Board is complete for its term.
36 Determining the exact timeline I'm leaving up to the Trustees.
