The election for the new trustees of the Gentoo Foundation is almost here! There is an open call for nominees; any voting members of the Gentoo Foundation may be nominated. That means any current Gentoo developer with at least one year of experience or any former developer who voted for trustees in the past is eligible. The election officials have published all the information on the election including a list of voting members of the Gentoo Foundation.

To get more manpower to the foundation as quickly as possible, this election will have an accelerated time frame of two weeks for nominations and two weeks for voting.

Election schedule
Jan. 29 Nominations open
Feb. 12 Nominations close
Feb. 13 Voting opens
Feb. 27 Voting closes

To nominate a worthy candidate, join the gentoo-nfp mailing list. Trustee nominations are open to the public; voting is limited to Gentoo Foundation members. Send all your nominations, acceptances and feedback to the gentoo-nfp list.

Discuss this!

William L. Thomson Jr. and Alec Warner contributed the draft for this announcement.

Update: Candidate eligibility corrected, thanks to Daniel Robbins.
