The X.Org Foundation Board of Directors elections have not
proceeded according to the previously-announced calendar.
We also received word recently that Daniel Stone is
voluntarily stepping down from the Board due to lack of
time, although he will continue to work with the Board on
infrastructure and other projects.  This means that a fifth
slot on the Board will be vacant for this election.

As a result, we are announcing a re-opening of nominations
to the X.Org Foundation Board .  Any X.Org member in good
standing is eligible to nominate or be nominated, including
self-nominations.  You may send your nominations to
elections at  If you have already sent nominations, you
should have recently received an acknowledgement; if so, you
need not send the nomination again.

Current revised calendar:

  Monday  14 December 2009: Nominations reopen
  Tuesday 22 December 2009 11:55 GMT: Nominations close
  Tuesday 29 December 2009: Election slate is announced
  Tuesday 12 January  2009: Elections open
  Tuesday 19 January  2009 11:55 GMT: Elections close

Thanks much for your patience as we complete this process,
and for your assistance with the work of X.Org.
