Dear Gentoo Community,

Nominations for the Gentoo Council 2018 / 2019 election have started at
2018-06-13 00:00 UTC (Wednesday) and will remain open for the next two
weeks until the end of 2018-06-26 (Tuesday) (2018-06-27 00:00 UTC).

All nominations must be sent to the gentoo-project mailing list. If you
were nominated and want to run, you have to accept your nomination on
the same mailing list.

    * The council is composed of seven elected members
    * Nominations are allowed from June 13th 00:00 UTC to end of day
June 26th (June 27th 00:00 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 28th 00:00 UTC to end of day July 11th
(July 12th 00:00 UTC)
      (there is one day of break between nominations and voting so the
infra team has time to set up everything)
    * Only Gentoo developers may vote
    * The list of Gentoo Developers is based on active membership
by June 12th, 2018 (the day before the election was opened)
    * Gentoo uses the Condorcet method of voting
    * Results should be published around July 12th

The election page for this election[1] will contain all pertinent
