Under the "initial committee" transitional rules of the new TC charter, we need to renew 11 TC seats for this election. Candidates ranking 1st to 6th will get one-year seats, and candidates ranking 7th to 11th will get 6-month seats.

  • Technical Committee member - 11 positions


The electorate for this election are the Foundation individual members that are also committers for one of the official programs projects over the Grizzly-Havana timeframe (from 2012-09-27 to 2013-09-26, 23:59 PST).


Any member of an election electorate can propose his/her candidacy for the same election (except the two TC members who were elected for a one-year seat last Spring, Vishvananda Ishaya and Thierry Carrez). No nomination is required. They do so by sending an email to the openstack-dev@lists.openstack.org mailing-list, which the subject: "TC candidacy". The email can include a description of the candidate platform. The candidacy is then confirmed by one of the election officials, after verification of the electorate status of the candidate.
