Candidate proposals for the Technical Committee positions (7 positions)
are now open and will remain open until 05:59 UTC April 23, 2015.

Candidates for the Technical Committee Positions: Any Foundation
individual member can propose their candidacy for an available,
directly-elected TC seat. [0] (except the six TC members who were
elected for a one-year seat last October : Monty Taylor, Sean Dague,
Doug Hellmann, Russell Bryant, Anne Gentle, John Griffith) [1]

Propose your candidacy by sending an email to the openstack-dev at
lists.openstack.org mailing-list, with the subject: TC candidacy.
Please start your own thread so we have one thread per candidate. Since
there will be many people voting for folks with whom they might not have
worked, including a platform or statement to help voters make an
informed choice is recommended, though not required. Note that unlike in
the last TC election, no set of questions are proposed and it's entirely
up to the candidate to compose their candidacy.

Elizabeth and I will confirm candidates with an email to the candidate
thread as well as create a link to the confirmed candidate's proposal
email on the wikipage for this election. [1]

The election will be held from April 24 through to 13:00 UTC April 30,
2015. The electorate are the Foundation individual members that are also
committers for one of the official programs projects [2] over the
Juno-Kilo timeframe (April 9, 2014 06:00 UTC to April 9, 2015 05:59
UTC), as well as the extra-ATCs who are acknowledged by the TC. [3]

Please see the wikipage for additional details about this election. [1]

 Greetings,

 I'd like to take this chance to gently ask, but it's obviously not a
 requirement, to all candidates to share what their opinion with regards
 to the new governance discussion is in their candidacy.

 As a voter, I'm interested to know how the new candidates see our
 governance model in the next 6 months and what changes, related to the
 big tent discussion, they consider most important.

 Thanks,
 Flavio


 Hi Flavio:
 I had purposely not mentioned the organizational changes in the
 templated questions (which are brand new this time, so these are the
 guinea pig candidates).

 One of the things people are looking for is leaders. At campaign time
 folks with strong stances prevail. However it is the ability to listen
 and consider the opinions of others, especially when disagreement
 arises, that makes our TC as strong as it has been and hopefully will be
 in future.

 Everyone is enjoying the drama of the changes and yes they are dramatic,
 but equally if not more important is the work that will have to take
 place using listening and consideration skills in order to turn
 decisions into outcomes.

 Listening is an incredibly important leadership skill but doesn't get
 much air time during campaigns. If you look at really effective leaders
 though they are listeners, every one. Listeners also rarely state that
 is what they are doing, since they are busy listening.

 Any candidate is welcome to say anything they wish in their candidate
 statement. I appreciate that you are interested in their opinions about
 the new governance model, Flavio, and I appreciate you speaking up about
 it. But regardless of what decisions are made, what structure is decided
 upon and what that structure and its parts are called, we need people
 with the ability to listen, consider, and work very hard to put any of
 these decisions in place in order for them to succeed.

 We have a problem of incredible growth in OpenStack. Our growth is a
 manifestation of all we are doing correctly. I hope that the questions
 asked in the templates bring out the qualities I know each candidate is
 capable of, that ensure we have a group of leaders with the skills
 necessary to make agreements and produce results, regardless of the
 shape and colour of those agreements and

 Could you elaborate a bit on the question How would you characterize the 
 various facets of contributor motivation?”

Hi Doug:

Sure.

The reasons for a contributor's actions affect their actions. I'm
interested in hearing what you perceive to be the outcomes of various
contributor actions.

For instance, in the third party space, contributors consistently do
certain things which affect the whole community and they are regularly
oblivious to it. It is a very specific and predictable pattern. The
source of the pattern of behaviour stems from their reasons for
contributing, every single one has the same response when asked about
why they are doing what they are doing.

I'm interested in hearing what a given candidate's experience is with
the patterns of behaviour of various contributors. My hope is that
perhaps after the election, if any patterns seem to be OpenStack wide
they can be discussed, from the point of view of motivation.

I hope that sheds more light on the nature of the question without
projecting too much of my own experience here.

Do ask again if I missed the mark.

Thanks Doug,
Anita.

 Greetings,

 I'd like to take this chance to gently ask, but it's obviously not a
 requirement, to all candidates to share what their opinion with regards
 to the new governance discussion is in their candidacy.

 As a voter, I'm interested to know how the new candidates see our
 governance model in the next 6 months and what changes, related to the
 big tent discussion, they consider most important.

 Thanks,
 Flavio


 Hi Flavio:
 I had purposely not mentioned the organizational changes in the
 templated questions (which are brand new this time, so these are the
 guinea pig candidates).
 
 One of the things people are looking for is leaders. At campaign time
 folks with strong stances prevail. However it is the ability to listen
 and consider the opinions of others, especially when disagreement
 arises, that makes our TC as strong as it has been and hopefully will be
 in future.
 
 Everyone is enjoying the drama of the changes and yes they are dramatic,
 but equally if not more important is the work that will have to take
 place using listening and consideration skills in order to turn
 decisions into outcomes.
 
 Listening is an incredibly important leadership skill but doesn't get
 much air time during campaigns. If you look at really effective leaders
 though they are listeners, every one. Listeners also rarely state that
 is what they are doing, since they are busy listening.
 
 Any candidate is welcome to say anything they wish in their candidate
 statement. I appreciate that you are interested in their opinions about
 the new governance model, Flavio, and I appreciate you speaking up about
 it. But regardless of what decisions are made, what structure is decided
 upon and what that structure and its parts are called, we need people
 with the ability to listen, consider, and work very hard to put any of
 these decisions in place in order for them to succeed.
 
 We have a problem of incredible growth in OpenStack. Our growth is a
 manifestation of all we are doing correctly. I hope that the questions
 asked in the templates bring out the qualities I know each candidate is
 capable of, that ensure we have a group of leaders with the skills
 necessary to make agreements and produce results, regardless of the
 shape and colour of those agreements and results.
 
 Thank you,
 Anita.

Reminder: You have until tomorrow Thursday, 23:59 UTC to announce your
candidacy to the TC. We currently have 17 candidates for 11 positions (6
one-year seats and 5 six-month seats), and more candidacies is always
better (thanks to Condorcet !).

Given that my prior request for a stemming of the +1 emails went largely 
unnoticed and some folks feel it necessary to offer a testimonial for 
the candidate of their choice, if you have submitted a candidate 
proposal and have not received a confirmation within 24 hours (except if 
you are submitting within the remaining 24 hours, in which case please 
act before the deadline) please pm myself (anteaya) or Thierry (ttx) on 
irc so we see your candidate proposal and acknowledge you. We don't want 
to miss anybody.


The election will be held from October 11 through to October 17, 2013. 
The electorate are the Foundation individual members that are also 
committers for one of the official programs projects over the 
Grizzly-Havana timeframe (from 2012-09-27 to 2013-09-26, 23:59 PST), as

Candidates ranking 1st to 6th will get one-year seats, and candidates

that is not the wording of the charter at present, though I do believe
