Edubuntu Council Elections

As you may have noticed, the Edubuntu project have been going through some big changes recently. Something we have been working on with the Ubuntu Community Council for a while now is to have the Edubuntu Council back to a reasonable size (5 members).

That’s why, today, we are announcing that there will be an election for new Edubuntu Council members. Jordan Mantha will be resigning from his Edubuntu Council position due to time constraints from his new job. The two remaining members, Jonathan Carter and Stéphane Graber will be running for re-election.

How will the election work:

  • First week (#47, next week), we’ll be taking candidatures on the following wiki page: https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Edubuntu/Council/Election
  • On the week after (#48), the Ubuntu Community Council will setup a vote where all edubuntu-members will be asked to vote and choose the 5 candidates they want as Edubuntu Council members.
  • Early on the week after that (#49), the 5 new Edubuntu Council members will be announced by the Ubuntu Community Council and be added to the Launchpad team.

During the election process, the current Edubuntu council remains as it currently is.

Ubuntu members will be able to make nominations by adding themselves to the https://wiki.edubuntu.org/Edubuntu/Council/Election or propose a candidate anonymously by contacting an Edubuntu Council member who will add that person the wiki page. The Edubuntu Council will then forward the list of nominees to the Community Council.

The Community Council will set up a vote for Edubuntu Members and announce the results of the election. In the case where the new Edubuntu Council member is not an Edubuntu Member, they will receive Edubuntu Membership concurrently. Edubuntu council elections will occur anually, existing members may re-apply.
