I'm standing for reelection to a third term on the OpenStack Technical Committee. Rather than the usual platform where I drone on and on about myself, I'm going to take this opportunity to run a public service announcement instead.
Going into my second term I stated, "my personal vision for OpenStack is that of a vibrant and diverse community" and I think we've made progress on that front but still have a long way to go. The diversity (personal, professional and cultural) of our community has increased steadily, but we won't be able to sustain it if similar diversity among elected leaders continues to lag behind. Our leaders are frequently the faces of our community to those outside it, and should set an example for others to follow. OpenStack is built on a promise of representative leadership, and so we need people from under-represented segments of our community to stand and take up the challenge. There's just over 48 hours left to send in your self-nomination for a seat on the TC. If you can't meet the time commitments but know someone who can, encourage them to run. And, of course, when the time comes, vote. Vote for the candidates who best represent you, your beliefs, your ideals. Vote for those who share your vision for who, how and what OpenStack should be. If you've been paying attention these past years, you already know my opinions. I'd rather hear some new opinions from you. -- Jeremy Stanley
