-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA256 The Technical Committee has passed the following resolution: 1. The Technical Committee thanks all the candidates who put themselves forward for the vacant TC seat. 2. We appreciate the opportunity to select from a strong field of candidates. 3. We propose to the DPL that Keith Packard should be appointed to the TC. (Constitution 6.2(2)) Background: In mid 2012 we took nominations from the project at large for a possible addition to the Debian Technical Committee. We received a number of nominations, both self-nominations and suggestions from co-contributors. In December 2012 we asked each of the suggested nominees whether they were willing. Unfortunately there was a hiatus in the process until September 2013, at which point we collated the nominees' responses. The resulting longlist of nominees who said they were willing was: Michael Biebl Julien Cristau Raphael Hertzog Philipp Kern Keith Packard Craig Small We apologise for not having published this list at the time. During September, October and November we discussed privately the merits of the candidates. We were pleased with the strength of the field of candidates, although the lack of some kinds of diversity (particular, gender diversity) was disappointing. After our private discussion had come to a natural end, with everyone having said what they felt was important, we moved onto the formal vote. The voting process is constitutionally defined: any TC member may nominate a candidate to be voted on by other TC members; there is then a Condorcet vote between those options and Further Discussion. TC members nominated a shortlist of two candidates: Philipp Kern Keith Packard The votes were as follows: Ian Jackson, Bdale Garbee, Russ Allbery, Andreas Barth: 1. Keith Packard 2. Philipp Kern 3. Further Discussion Don Armstrong, Steve Langasek, Colin Watson: 1. Philipp Kern 2. Keith Packard 3. Further Discussion Once again, thanks to everyone who stood. The Debian Project Leader now has the opportunity to confirm, or to reject, the nomination. Ian. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.12 (GNU/Linux) iQEcBAEBCAAGBQJSmHw2AAoJEOPjOSNItQ05U0EH/0Syy+eGvKY02VG8SOBjXD1p mFOb3uldLlDainZ0RpPeGxBJkK+1ak+B1YrEX3dFLgLvTgAF6loxE5N7CDP10mSH 9iZ2mUmAcboDhN4sR7OQcsZ3u+Eu11ga8sHcKkKSvBMSPwfTxH5IEcWlDpUbza/W +TXRSj8WtKpQSZ12YH+HhKGRHNGIhSlMjgulih0Z5EuqliIaTO7gDEy7uQh8cETh /gcy5zCR43T9tOcIqMIqqlIrpum7CMfk4GoUb7Y8AptSm4Eg9BiBSF8tGeyReWRo f9yc5C0iVGyJnKMO1GyH+KZmj2sExMYug4DJSqloXPBGZqxS/zcSFH3jXDxRMb8= =lJYa -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
