Ubuntu IRC Council Elections

Soon several members of the IRC Council (Joseph Price, Marek Spruell and Melissa Draper) will finish their terms of 2 years. The purpose of this email is to begin the process of electing new/re-electing members to the council.

Currently, the wiki states the following regarding IRC Council members:

# Be appointed by the Ubuntu Community Council in consultation with the IRC Council, IRC operators, and active contributors to the IRC channels. Nominations would be open and public and would be considered and evaluated by the CC. Each candidate should prepare a wiki page summarizing their nomination and their contributions and including and referencing testimonials (e.g., something similar to what is prepared for Ubuntu membership). The CC commits to evaluating all nominations on the following criteria, listed in order of importance:

– The nominees active status as an Ubuntu Member (essential)

– The nominees support from at least one active IRC Council member (essential)

– Opinions and testimonials (positive and negative) from current members of the IRC Council

– Opinions and testimonials from current IRC operators –
Opinions and testimonials from Ubuntu Members, Ubunteros, and other active participants on IRC – Evidence of activity within IRC (quality, quantity and duration)

# Serve terms of two (2) years. IRC Council members could serve multiple or repeated terms. Weight will be given to proved contributors and reelection of consistently active members should be both easy and common.

We would like to invite Ubuntu members to nominate themselves if they wish to run for election for the Ubuntu IRC Council. Please only nominate yourself, do not nominate others.
If you are nominating yourself, please prepare a wiki page as described above. A nomination should be in the form of an email to the Ubuntu IRC Council email address: irc-council at lists.ubuntu.com

All nominations will be passed onto the Ubuntu Community Council.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing your nominations.
