- September 11 - September 17, 05:59 UTC: Open candidacy for PTL positions
- September 18 - September 24: PTL elections
Every official project team must elect a PTL. PTLs are elected for 6 months. Reference: http://governance.openstack.org/reference/projects/index.html
Except otherwise-noted in the project team description, the electorate for a given PTL election are the Foundation individual members that are also committers for one of the team's repositories over the Kilo-Liberty timeframe (September 18, 2014 06:00 UTC to September 18, 2015 05:59 UTC).
The electorate is requested to confirm their email address in gerrit, review.openstack.org > Settings > Contact Information > Preferred Email, prior to September 18, 2015 so that the emailed ballots are mailed to the correct email address.
There is a resolution to the governance repo that all of the electorate is expected to follow: http://governance.openstack.org/resolutions/20140711-election-activities.html
Any member of an election electorate can propose their candidacy for the same election until April 9, 05:59 UTC. Self-nomination is common, third party nomination is not required, and on-list candidate support emails are discouraged both to reduce mailing list traffic and to keep everything fair for nominees. Nominees propose their candidacy by [...]. The candidacy is then approved by one of the election officials, after verification of the electorate status of the candidate.
