(I sent this to announce, xorg and xorg-devel lists but forgot the
members list. To account for this mistake, the nomination window is
being extended to March 10. The email below is the same as previously,
with the dates adjusted.)
We are seeking nominations for candidates for election to the X.Org
Foundation Board of Directors. All X.Org Foundation members are
eligible for election to the board.
Nominations for the 2012 election are now open and will remain open
until 23.59 GMT on 10 March 2013.
The Board consists of directors elected from the membership. Each
year, an election is held to bring the total number of directors to
eight. The four members receiving the highest vote totals will serve
as directors for two year terms.
The directors who received two year terms starting in 2011 were
Matthias Hopf, Keith Packard, Matt Dew, and Alex Deucher. They
will continue to serve until their term ends in 2013. Current
directors whose term expires in 2012 are Eric Anholt, Alan Coopersmith,
Stuart Kreitman, and Bart Massey.
A director is expected to participate in the bi-weekly IRC meeting to
discuss current business and to attend the annual meeting of the X.Org
Foundation, which will be held at a location determined in advance by
the Board of Directors.
A member may nominate themselves or any other member they feel is
qualified. Nominations should be sent to the Election Committee at
elections at x.org.
Nominees shall be required to be current members of the X.Org
Foundation, and submit a personal statement of up to 200 words that
will be provided to prospective voters. The collected statements,
along with the statement of contribution to the X.Org Foundation in
the members account page on http://members.x.org, will be made
available to all voters to help them make their voting decisions.
Nominations, membership applications or renewals and completed
personal statements must be received no later than 23.59 GMT on 10 March
The slate of candidates will be published 11 March
2013 and candidate Q&A will begin then. The deadline for Xorg
membership applications and renewals is 15 March 2011.
