Hi Everyone,

Soon several members of the IRC Council (Joseph Price, Marek Spruell
and Melissa Draper) will finish their terms of 2 years. The purpose of
this email is to begin the process of electing new/re-electing members
to the council.

Currently, the wiki states the following regarding IRC Council members:

"# Be appointed by the Ubuntu Community Council in consultation with
the IRC Council, IRC operators, and active contributors to the IRC
channels. Nominations would be open and public and would be considered
and evaluated by the CC. Each candidate should prepare a wiki page
summarizing their nomination and their contributions and including and
referencing testimonials (e.g., something similar to what is prepared
for Ubuntu membership). The CC commits to evaluating all nominations
on the following criteria, listed in order of importance:

      - The nominees active status as an Ubuntu Member (essential)

      - The nominees support from at least one active IRC Council
member (essential)

      - Opinions and testimonials (positive and negative) from current
members of the IRC Council

      - Opinions and testimonials from current IRC operators -
Opinions and testimonials from Ubuntu Members, Ubunteros, and other
active participants on IRC - Evidence of activity within IRC (quality,
quantity and duration)

# Serve terms of two (2) years. IRC Council members could serve
multiple or repeated terms. Weight will be given to proved
contributors and reelection of consistently active members should be
both easy and common. "

(from: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcTeam/IrcCouncil)

We would like to invite Ubuntu members to nominate themselves if they
wish to run for election for the Ubuntu IRC Council. Please only
nominate yourself, do not nominate others.
If you are nominating yourself, please prepare a wiki page as
described above. A nomination should be in the form of an email to the
Ubuntu IRC Council email address: irc-council at lists.ubuntu.com

All nominations will be passed onto the Ubuntu Community Council.

Thank you for your time and we look forward to seeing your nominations.

The Ubuntu IRC Council.
