As most of you noticed, the Edubuntu project have been going through
some big changes recently. Something we have been working on with the
Ubuntu Community Council for a while now is to have the Edubuntu Council
back to a reasonable size (5 members).
That's why, today, we announce that there will be an election for new
Edubuntu Council members. Jordan Mantha will be resigning from his
Edubuntu Council position due to time constraints from his new job.
The two remaining members, Jonathan Carter and Stéphane Graber will be
running for re-election.
How will the election work:
- First week (#47, next week), we'll be taking candidatures on the
following wiki page: https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Edubuntu/Council/Election
- On the week after (#48), the Ubuntu Community Council will setup a
vote where all edubuntu-members will be asked to vote and choose the 5
candidates they want as Edubuntu Council members.
- Early on the week after that (#49), the 5 new Edubuntu Council
members will be announced by the Ubuntu Community Council and be added
to the Launchpad team.
During the election process, the current Edubuntu council remains as it
Ubuntu members will be able to make nominations by adding themselves to
the https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Edubuntu/Council/Election or propose a
candidate anonymously by contacting an Edubuntu Council member who will
add that person the wiki page.
The Edubuntu Council will then forward the list of nominees to the
The Community Council will set up a vote for Edubuntu Members and
announce the results of the election. In the case where the new
Edubuntu Council member is not an Edubuntu Member, they will receive
Edubuntu Membership concurrently. Edubuntu council elections will occur
anually, existing members may re-apply.
