The term length of five of the six members of the Technical Board will end on 1st October. Elected members will stay on the board for two years.
The nomination period runs from now until 1500 UTC on 13th September 2011. After a quick deliberation period the election will be announced. All Ubuntu developers are eligible to vote. Voting will run for two weeks.
The Technical Board is the custodian of technical architecture, engineering processes and technology strategy in Ubuntu. We like to make sure it represents the best combination of experience and innovation from all of the Ubuntu development teams.
If you would like to put yourself forward for nomination, or would like to nominate a member of the Ubuntu Developer community who you think would make a fine member of the board, please mail Daniel Holbach about it privately.
