We are opening nominations for two positions on the Ubuntu IRC
Council. We are filling in slots opened by resignations [1]. We felt
we could still perform with four members of the council but not with
just three.

Details of the IRC Council can be read on the wiki [2]; a summary of
the nomination requirements is below (but all are suggested to read
the wiki in full):

Elections of new IRC Council members will be held in the following way:

* An open call for nominations should be announced in the IRC
Community, and people can nominate themselves for a seat on the
council. Everyone is welcome to apply.

* To apply for a seat the candidate creates a Wiki page outlining
their work in the community, and inviting others to provide testimonials.

* When the application deadline has passed, the IRC Council will
review the applications and provide feedback on the candidates for the
Community Council to review.

* The Community Council will identify a shortlist for the board and
circulate the list publically for feedback from the community.

* The shortlist identified by the Community Council will be voted upon
by team members as described at CommunityCouncil/Delegation. Members
of the Ubuntu IRC Members Team are eligible to vote.

* The Community Council will then finalise the appointment of IRC
Council members.

The dealine for the nominations will be announced later on, as a reply
to this email.

is resigning.
