We will soon have three vacant Developer Membership Board seats. Barry
Warsaw, Micah Gersten and Stefano Rivera will reach the end of their
terms on 2014-02-25. This mail is a call for nominations.

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 a visible 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

The term of the new board member will be 2 years. Providing at least
four valid nominations are received, voting will commence on Monday
10th February 2014 and will last for 14 days, ending on Monday 24th
February 2014. The DMB will confirm the appointments in its next meeting

Please send PGP-signed nominations to
developer-membership-board at (which is a private mailing
list accessible only by DMB members) by midnight UTC on Monday 10th
February 2014.

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 nominated
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.
