Technical Board: Nominations

The Ubuntu Technical Board intends to grow its membership from the current four seats to six. All but one of these seats (the recently elected Colin Watson) will be up for election for a period of two years.

All Ubuntu developers are eligible to vote.

The nomination period runs from now until 1400 UTC on 28th July 2009.

There will then follow a two week deliberation period, before the candidates are announced in the Technical Board meeting of 1400 UTC on 11th August 2009.

Voting will run for two weeks, and the winning candidates announced in the Technical Board meeting of 1400 UTC on 25th August 2009.

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 send an e-mail to technical-board at
