Upcoming Vacant Developer Membership Board seats: Second call for nominations

Recommended Posts

The membership of Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre in the Developer Membership

board will be expiring shortly and Adam Conrad's membership will expire

a few months after that. Subsequently, this email is a call for

nominations to fill both of their positions although one elected

developer will not begin their term immediately.

Ubuntu developers themselves, and should be well qualified to evaluate

prospective Ubuntu developers and decide when to entrust them with

developer privileges or to grant them Ubuntu membership status.


The new member will be chosen using Condorcet voting. Members of the

ubuntu-dev team in Launchpad will be eligible to vote. To ensure that

you receive a ballot in the initial mail, please add a visible email

address to your Launchpad profile (although there will be an opportunity

to receive a ballot after the vote has started if you do not wish to do



The term of the new board members will be at least two years (there will

be some changes to terms to get these two positions to share the same

expiration date). Providing at least three valid nominations are

received, voting will commence on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 and will last

for approximately 7 days, ending on or around Tuesday, June 6, 2017.

The DMB will confirm the appointments in its next meeting thereafter.


Please send GPG-signed nominations to developer-membership-board at
