Vacant Developer Membership Board seat: Call for nominations

We will soon have a Vacant Developer Membership Board seat. Michael Bienia is reaching the end of his term, and we need to find a replacement. This is a call for nominations.

The DMB is responsible for reviewing and approving new Ubuntu developers, meeting for about an hour once a fortnight. Candidates should be Ubuntu developers themselves, and should be well qualified to evaluate prospective Ubuntu developers and decide when to entrust them with developer privileges or to grant them Ubuntu membership status.

The new member will be chosen using Condorcet voting. Members of the ubuntu-dev team in Launchpad will be eligible to vote. To ensure that you receive a ballot in the initial mail, please add a visible email address to your Launchpad profile (although there will be an opportunity to receive a ballot after the vote has started if you do not wish to do this).

The term of the new board member will be 2 years. Providing at least one nomination is received, voting will commence on Tuesday 31 January 2012 and last for 2 weeks, ending on Tuesday 14 February 2012. The DMB will confirm the appointment in its next meeting thereafter.

Please send nominations to developer-membership-board at (which is a private mailing list accessible only by DMB members) by Monday 30 January 2012.

If nominating a developer other than yourself, please confirm that the nominee is happy to sit on the board before emailing the DMB.

Please consider writing a short statement on your wiki page if nominating so that others get a better idea of who they are voting for. If you include a link to this in your nomination mail or a followup, the DMB will share it when the call for votes begins.
