> 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 
> nominees,
> 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
>     candidates.
> 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
>   - Each member can cast their votes for the people they want
>     on the Council.  Top nine scores win.
> Note: All dates are in American Central Time.
> That's it.  We are looking forward to this election.  Let's 
> all work to make it a good one.
