[maemo-community] Maemo Community Council Q1 2011 nominations are now open...

Running the election could be important to show that the council has the
support of the community (and that there is still a community "in numbers")
but I am afraid that running an election where all candidates are all
elected regardless of the results may backfire - there will be little
motivation to vote.

My suggestion would be, in case all the candidates get elected, to not run
the election but soon after the transition run some poll to measure the
community and its wishes/worries and also validate the new council. I think
it is important to be able to show Nokia, developers and users in general
how large the community is.

I believe, if I'm not mistaken, we've got five candidates:

  * RM Bauer (SD69)

  * Alan Bruce (qole)

  * Felipe Crochik (felipec)

  * Attila Csipa (achipa)

  * Randall Arnold (Texrat) - awaiting clarification

Once Randall clarifies his position we either have three slots to be
filled from four candidates; or five slots to be filled from five


What are people's thoughts on the matter? Do we want to run an
election where everybody is going to get on the Council anyway (to
give the new council a sense of a mandate?) or do we start the
transition process straightaway?

Thanks in advance,


PS. Could someone update the wiki page, please?
