PROPOSED UW PROJECT LEADER(S) ELECTION PROCESS
Ubuntu Women Project Team Leadership Options
Below are the options for the team to consider - based on discussions in
December and January: (however if neither of these options are what you
would prefer please add your suggestion to the email or forum thread for
* *Option 1* - *Single Leader* - Review of the CC appointed leader and a
formal vote to keep that leader in place or nominate and to choose another
* *Option 2* - *Multiple co-leaders* - 3 leaders who together have
diverse strengths and span many areas of the community.
UW Project Team Election of Leader(s)
* Voting Members of the Team will vote on leader (s) in
another Condorcet poll.
* You must be listed on the Ubuntu Women LP Team for 1 month prior to
election date in order to be eligible to vote.
* Ubuntu-Women Project Team on LP
* It is important that all Ubuntu Women Project Team members who are
active in the following areas but have not joined the
Ubuntu-Women Team in
Launchpad are encouraged to do so:
* Ubuntu Women Mailing List
* Ubuntu Women Forums
* #ubuntu-women and #ubuntu-women-project IRC channels.
* *May 15th* - The List of the eligible Ubuntu Women Project Team members
will be put together using the LP list. I have been updating the list from
the channel poll - so this will not be a hard or time consuming task. It
will just need to be double checked.
* *May 15* - After the nominations are closed and the testimonial Phase
begins 2 people who are NOT seeking the leadership position (s) will need to
be responsible for the Condorcet poll. Don't worry if you are unfamiliar
with Condorcet it's easy and we can set up some "mock" polls to make you are
comfortable and familiar with how it works before the leadership poll is
schedule to open.

want to use it. That is a tribute to how good Linux is.
