> My fellow JSF Members,
> It is time to elect the Jabber Council members for
> 2002-2003. The elections are going to be held starting on
> June 15th. While this is two months away, we want to make
> sure we start early enough to give the candidates enough time
> to prepare, and for you to get to know the candidates and
> find out more about them. Find out where they stand on
> issues and where they've been working in the Jabber Community.
> We are going to be doing things a little differently this
> year. We want to model this after the Debian DPL elections.
> Instead of just having a mad rush to be on the Council, we
> want to make sure that the people you want on the Council, get on.
> We are going to start off by allowing you to nominate
> fellow members (excluding yourself) to get a feel for who you
> want to be on there.
> >From that list we will pick the top 14 names, of the willing
> and that will become the Candidate list for this election.
> The Candidates will then have the chance to publish their
> platforms, and give you a chance to get to know them better.
> Following that we will host a debate where more in-depth
> questions from the membership will be posed to each candidate
> and each will be given a chance to respond. Following the
> debate, we will have a two week window for you to reflect and
> ask the candidates any other questions you might have, and
> the elections will start on June 15th.
> Here is the timeline and description of each step:
> April 8-26: Nomination Period
> - Members may nominate any of the members they choose
> to *EXCEPT* for themselves.
> - Each member can nominate 3 other members for the Council.
> - Members may make it known that they are interested in being
> nominated, or they do not wish to be nominated.
> - The top 14 willing nominees will be notified that they are
> May 6-10: Candidate Platform Preparation
> - Candidates will be given a week to prepare their platform.
> - The platform is a background about yourself, your positions
> on issues, what you want to accomplish by being a Council
> member, etc...
> May 13-24: Member Research
> - Members should read over the platforms and think of more in
> depth questions they would like to have answered.
> - All questions go to the debate coordinator to be announced
> by May 10.
> May 29: Debate
> - The debate coordinator will pick the best questions, and
> host the debate.
> June 15-21: Voting for new Council
