The membership terms for two members (Jeremy Bicha and Mathieu
Trudel-Lapierre) have expired, and the terms of the remaining members
(Eric Desrochers, Micah Gersten, Robie Basak, Simon Quigley and Ɓukasz
Zemczak) expire in May. Subsequently, this email is a call for
nominations to fill their positions.

The DMB is responsible for reviewing and approving new Ubuntu developers
[1]. Candidates must be Ubuntu core developers or MOTU, and should be
well qualified to evaluate prospective Ubuntu developers and decide when
to entrust them with developer privileges or to grant them Ubuntu
membership status.

Candidates must expect to be able to attend the majority of DMB
meetings. Currently these take place on IRC, are scheduled on alternate
Mondays with each meeting alternating between 1500 UTC and 1900 UTC, and
last around an hour.

The new members will be chosen using Condorcet voting. Members of the
ubuntu-dev team in Launchpad will be eligible to vote. To ensure that
you receive a ballot in the initial mail, please add a visible email
address to your Launchpad profile (although there will be an opportunity
to receive a ballot after the vote has started if you do not wish to do

The term of the new board members will be at least two years. Providing
at least eight valid nominations are received, voting will commence on
Thursday, February 13, 2020 and will last for approximately seven days,
ending on or around Thursday, February 20, 2020. The DMB will confirm
the appointments in its next meeting thereafter.

Please send GPG-signed nominations to developer-membership-board at (which is a private mailing list accessible only by DMB
members) by midnight UTC on Wednesday, February 12, 2020.

If nominating a developer other than yourself, please confirm that the
nominee is happy to sit on the board before emailing the DMB.

Please consider writing a short statement on your wiki page if nominated
so that others get a better idea of for whom they are voting. If you
include a link to this wiki page in your nomination mail or a followup,
the DMB will share it when the call for votes begins.


On behalf of the DMB,
Robie Basak
