So I have made an error, which hit my radar the other day and has demonstrated itself to be true this morning (Eastern Daylight Time).
I have been operating with the understanding that a TC candidate needed to have a commit to one of the OpenStack projects in order to run. (In other words, they had to come from the electorate.) This is in error. A fact that I smelled a whiff of in response to a question from Jay Pipes in irc when I linked to the TC charter, particularly the line: "Any Foundation individual member can propose their candidacy for an available, directly-elected TC seat." http://git.openstack.org/cgit/openstack/governance/tree/reference/charter.rst#n150 and then was front and centre of my attention this morning when working with Tristan as new candidates are confirmed. The information about TC candidacy eligiblity requirements on the TC elections wikipage currently is wrong and I will change it as soon as I finish falling on my sword. I conferred with Thierry this morning and he has been operating under the same assumption as well. We fixed the broken link to the foundation by-laws on the governance wikipage and read them again. http://www.openstack.org/legal/bylaws-of-the-openstack-foundation/ as well as http://www.openstack.org/legal/technical-committee-member-policy/ There is information about the definition of ATC but none about the requirements of TC candidates. So the governing document in this case is the TC charter, which states that foundation membership is the sole requirement for a candidate to be eligible to run. I apologize for the confusion. In addition to this email and editing the wikipage, if anyone feels I need to do anything more to address this please contact me so that I may endeavour to do my best. Thank you, Anita. _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
