Hi all,

As you may have noticed from Randall's announcement, the declaration
period for candidatures for the Q3 2009 Maemo community council election
is open.

Thanks to the cumulative nature of karma there are more possible
candidates than ever before this time - 314 of us meet the karma
requirements for nomination.

Candidates eligible for election (*) can be nominated by anyone in the
community. If a maemo.org community member nominates someone other than
themselves, the nomination must be accepted by the nominee before it is

Nominations may be made before 23:59 UTC, September 20th, at which time
a voting period of one week will open, by sending an email to the
maemo-community mailing list with the subject "Council Nomination:"
followed by the name of the nominee. Nominations can be confirmed by the
nominee replying to this email.

I encourage anyone who would like to be on the council to nominate
themselves early, and I would encourage all community members to be
forthcoming with questions for the candidates.

Important election dates:
Sept  7 	Nominations open for Maemo Community Council elections
Sept 21 	Nominations close, voting opens
Sept 28 	Voting closes, provisional results declared
Oct   5 	If no challenges are upheld, results for elections are final

Good luck to all!

Dave Neary.

(*) Rules are set out in http://wiki.maemo.org/Community_Council -
candidates must have over 100 karma points to be eligible for election.
