Elected Positions

Under the rules of the TC charter, we need to renew 7 TC seats for this election. Seats are valid for one-year terms.

  • Technical Committee member - 7 positions


The electorate for this election are the Foundation individual members that are also committers for one of the official project teams repositories over the Liberty-Mitaka timeframe (March 4, 2015 00:00 UTC to March 3, 2016 23:59 UTC)

The electorate is requested to confirm their email address in gerrit, review.openstack.org > Settings > Contact Information > Preferred Email, prior to March 17 (UTC), 2016 so that the emailed ballots are mailed to the correct email address.

The electorate is expected to abide by the following general resolution: http://governance.openstack.org/resolutions/20140711-election-activities.html


Any individual member of the foundation can propose their candidacy (except the six TC members who were elected for a one-year seat in October).

Nominees propose their candidacy by submitting a text file to the openstack/election repository. The file must be placed in candidates/<cycle>/TC/<candidate_name>.txt. The candidacy is then confirmed by elections officials through gerrit vote. See documentation below.

How to submit your candidacy

If you are not already familiar with OpenStack development workflow, see this more detailed documentation: http://docs.openstack.org/infra/manual/developers.html

Candidacies now need to be submitted as a text file to the openstack/election repository. Here are the required steps:

  • Clone the election repository: git clone git://git.openstack.org/openstack/election ; cd election
  • Create a new file candidates/newton/TC/<your_name>.txt containing your candidate statement
  • NOTE: please include your IRC nick somewhere in the review (either in the candidate statement or commit message)
  • Commit your candidacy: git add candidates/newton/TC/*.txt; git commit -m "Adding <your_name> candidacy for TC"
  • Submit your candidacy: git review

After it's submitted to gerrit, verification and approval is being done by elections officials. Then the approved candidate list below is updated.
