[maemo-community] Maemo Community Council Elections Q3 2010: Nominations open

Hi all,

The list of community members eligible for election to the community
council for the September 2010 election is in the wiki at

To nominate yourself or someone else for the council, please email the
maemo-community mailing list with a clear email header (something like
"Council nomination: Michael Mouse" for example).

People who are nominated should accept (or refuse) such a nomination, if
they are not nominating themselves. Apart from that, nominations don't
require a seconder.

I encourage people to outline their vision for the council and their
personal goals as a council member when nominating themselves. At the
end of the nominating period we will have a one week hustings when
candidates should be grilled by the community, and defend their vision
of the type of council they want to have.

I'd like to apologise for the delay in opening nominations & preparing
the list of eligible candidates. I didn't realise that today was the
date Andrew had announced, and being just back from holidays with no
internet hasn't helped.
