Hi, It is fast approaching time to elect the Release Manager for the next Evergreen release.
The Release Manager does not have to be a core committer, but does need to be familiar with Git and have already contributed substantially to the Evergreen project whether it be code or documentation. Nominations (including self-nominations) are due by 11:59 PM EDT on Friday, 28 October. Nominations should be made by email to open-ils-...@list.georgialibraries.org with a Cc: to firstname.lastname@example.org. Replying to all on this email will also work. Nominees should send an email to both of the above mailing lists a statement about their relationship to the Evergreen community and their goals for the next release. The elected release manager will be expected to adhere to the established schedule for the release milestones. The election will be held in the Evergreen IRC channel on freenode.net during the week of October 31st (i.e., the week of the Evergreen Hack-a-way). Later this week, I will circulate a poll for setting the specific date and time. Everyone is invited to participate in the voting. Evergreen core committers who cannot make the meeting may submit their vote via email to the open-ils-dev mailing list. As a side note, during the Hack-a-way we will discuss the results of the experiment with the buildmaster position during the 2.11 cycle; if we decide to continue with it, we'll likely select buildmasters for the next release during the Hack-a-way or shortly thereafter.
