Dear community,

as another Kubuntu Council member decided to step down from his position today, the council is down to 3 people which is the minimum required amount of members to make any decisions.

With this, we immediately need to elect 3 new kubuntu council members to keep the council functional. If this will not be possibly for whatever reason, the council will be disbanded, at which point we will inform you of the further proceedings.

As this is an out-of-schedule election and the terms of the remaining council members don't match, the election will proceed as follows:

The remaining members of the Kubuntu Council are:
- Philip Muskovac
- Valorie Zimmermann
- Myriam Schweingruber
their council membership will be set to expire one year after the voting period is over.

The new council members will start a regular 2 year term.

As in the past, the election will be conducted using CIVS (Condorcet Internet Voting Service - http://www.cs.cornell.edu/andru/civs.html ).  The top three ranking vote recipients will be elected.

Nomination period: Now to 2015-09-09
Ballot Preparation: 2015-09-09 2015-09-10
Voting Period: 2015-09-10 to 2015-09-17
End Poll/Results Announced: 2015-09-18
New Term Begins: 2015-09-18

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 roles:
 - 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.  I can also be found on Freenode IRC in #kubuntu or #kubuntu-devel, nickname: yofel
