All Kubuntu Members ( https://launchpad.net/~kubuntu-members/+members ) are 
eligible to be nominated and to vote.  If you have a public email address in 
launchpad, you need take no further action to receive your voting ballot.  If 
you do not have a public email address, please contact me offlist with the 
address you'd like your ballot sent to, otherwise you will be unable to vote.


All Kubuntu members are eligible.  The Kubuntu Council is intended to 
represent all of the Kubuntu community.  Applications from involved non-
developers are encouraged.  If you are nominating someone else, please confirm 
their willingness to serve before nominating them.  Nominations should be done 
in public via either kubuntu-users or kubuntu-devel mailing lists.  If there 
is some extraordinary reason that precludes that, contact me directly.


The Kubuntu Council is the leadership body of Kubuntu.  Members of the council 
are expected to be active in Kubuntu.  The Kubuntu Council has three primary 
 - Approve development plans for future Kubuntu releases
 - Approve Kubuntu membership applications
 - Resolve disputes within the Kubuntu project

The time commitment is not large.  Meetings are generally only once every 
several months and conducted via IRC.


If there are questions, you can contact me (preferably) via this mailing list 
or (if really necessary) via direct mail.
