Hi,

Scott Kitterman recently announced his resignation from the Developer
Membership Board upon the identification of a replacement board member
[1]. This mail is a call for nominations.

The DMB is responsible for reviewing and approving new Ubuntu developers
[2], 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
this).

The term of the replacement board member will be the remainder of
Scott's 2 year term, which at present is through March 1, 2017.
Providing at least two valid nominations are received, voting will
commence on Monday, June 29, 2015 and will last for approximately 14
days, ending on or around Monday, July 13th, 2015. The DMB will confirm
the appointments in its next meeting thereafter.

Please send PGP-signed nominations to developer-membership-board at
lists.ubuntu.com
(which is a private mailing list accessible only by DMB members) by
midnight UTC on Monday, June 29, 2015.

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.

Thank you,
Micah Gersten
On behalf of the DMB
