Dear LoCo Contacts and Teams,
We on the LoCo Council are being faced with the challenge of replacing
two of our current Council members. A special thanks to Paolo and Greg
for all of the great contributions they have made while serving with us
on the LoCo Council.
Towards the end of last October, we put out a call for nominations for
re-staffing the LoCo Council. Due to the amount of time that has passed,
we thought it would be good to make another call for nominations. This
new call for nominations would help ensure those who were nominated or
had expressed an interest in being a part of the LoCo Council, would
still have both the time and desire to join our team.
So with that in mind, we are writing this e-mail to ask for volunteers
to step forward and nominate themselves or another contributor for the
two open positions. The LoCo Council is defined on our wiki page.
Team Agenda: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LoCoCouncilAgenda
Typically, we meet up once a month in IRC to go through items on the
team agenda. This involves approving new LoCo Teams, Re-approval of
Approved LoCo Teams, resolving issues within Teams, approving LoCo Team
mailing list requests, and anything else that comes along.
We have the following requirements for Nominees:
- Be an Ubuntu member
- Be available during typical meeting times of the council
- Insight into the culture(s) and typical activities within teams is
Here is a descriptionof the current LoCo Council:
They are current Ubuntu Members with a proven track record of activity
in the community. They have shown themselves over time to be able to
work well with others, and display the positive aspects of the Ubuntu
Code of Conduct. They should be people who can judge contribution
quality without emotion while engaging in an interview/discussion that
communicates interest, a welcoming atmosphere, and which is marked by
humanity, gentleness, and kindness.
If this sounds like you, or a person you know, please e-mail the LoCo
Council with your nomination(s) using the following e-mail address:
loco-council<at>lists.ubuntu.com. Please include a few lines about
yourself, or whom you're nominating, so we can get a good idea of why
you/they'd like to join the council, and why you feel that you/they
should be considered. If you plan on nominating another person, please
let them know, so they are aware.
The time frame for this process is as follows:
Nominations will open: August31, 2012
Nominations will close: September13, 2012
We will then forward the nominations to the CC, Requestingthey take the
following week to make their selections (hopefully by their meeting on
Date new council members will be announced: September 21, 2012
Thanks for your time,
On behalf of the LoCo Council
