We are in the final week of the nomination period for
candidates for the position of the Debian Project Leader.=20
The new project leader term starts on April 17th, and that
sets the time line:
Nomination period: Feb 7th 00:00:01 UTC -- Feb 28th 00:00:00 UTC
Campaigning period: Feb 28th 00:00:01 UTC -- Mar 21st 00:00:00 UTC
Voting period: Mar 21st 00:00:01 UTC -- Apr 11th 00:00:00 UTC
Prospective leaders should be familiar with the constitution,
but, just to review: there's a three week period when interested
developers nominate themselves, followed by a three week period with
no nominations [intended for campaigning], followed by three weeks
for the election itself.
I am going to be away from internet access next week (right
when the nomination period ends, so the formal announcement of the
candidates shall be delayed by 36-48 hours, maybe less.
I intend to collect platform statements from the candidates,
and publish them on a known location (somewhere under
www.debian.org/vote) at the end of the nomination period and the
beginning of the campaign.
I suggest that the candidates send the platform, preferably in
HTML/SGML, to the secretary at least a couple of days before the
publication date -- say, by the end of the month?
This should give the candidates enough time to craft their
platforms, I should think. The format of the web page is open to
discussion, but I suggest there be at least three sections:
b) Major Goal/ Meat of the platform,
After the publication, there share be a one week period for
each candidate to create a rebuttal, and the rebuttals shall be
published on Mar 7th, 2005 (I am out of town from the 2nd of March to
the 6'th, but I think I shall be able to get the rebuttals out more
or less on time)
Please make sure that nominations are sent to (or cc:'d to)
debian-vote, and are cryptographically signed.
When all other means of communication fail, try words.
