The nomination deadline for candidates for election to the X.Org Foundation
Board of Directors has been extended until 23.59 GMT on Monday, 20 February
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 last year were
Eric Anholt, Alan Coopersmith, Stuart Kreitman, and Bart Massey. They
will continue to serve until their term ends in next year's elections.
Current directors who were elected two years ago, and whose term is expiring
are Alex Deucher, Matthieu Herrb, Matthias Hopf, and Keith Packard.
A director is expected to participate in the biweekly 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 and completed personal statements must be received no later
than 23.59 GMT on 20 February 2012.
