Hello developers,

Mackenzie Morgan (maco) has stepped down from the DMB, and there is
therefore an now open seat. We are soliciting nominations to fill this

The DMB is responsible for reviewing and approving new Ubuntu
developers, meeting for about an hour once a fortnight. Candidates
should be Ubuntu developers themselves, and should be well qualified to
evaluate prospective Ubuntu developers and decide when to entrust them
with developer privileges or to grant them Ubuntu membership status.

The new member will be chosen using Condorcet voting. Members of the
ubuntu-dev team in Launchpad will be eligible to vote. To ensure that
you receive a ballot in the initial mail, please add an email address to
your Launchpad profile (although there will be an opportunity to receive
a ballot after the vote has started if you do not wish to do this).

The term of the new board member will be 2 years. Providing at least one
nomination is received, voting will commence on Tuesday 23 August 2011
and last for 2 weeks, ending on Tuesday 6 September 2011. The DMB will
confirm the appointment in its next meeting thereafter.

Please send nominations to developer-membership-board at
(which is a private mailing list accessible only by DMB members) by
Monday 22 August 2011.

If nominating a developer other than yourself, please confirm that the
nominee is happy to sit on the board before emailing the DMB.

Please consider writing a short statement on your wiki page if
nominating so that others get a better idea of who they are voting for.
If you include a link to this in your nomination mail or a followup, the
DMB will share it when the call for votes begins.
