Three members - Simon Quigley, Eric Desrochers and Rafael David Tinoco -
have recently vacated their seats on the DMB. Subsequently, this email
is a call for nominations to fill their vacated seats.

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 1600 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 ensure that a visible
email address exists on 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 this).

The term of the new board members will be at least two years. Providing
at least four valid nominations are received, voting will commence on
Wednesday, March 23, 2022 and will last for approximately seven days,
ending on or around Wednesday, March 30, 2022. 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 Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

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.

This call for nominations is being sent to a moderated announcement
mailing list. For discussion, Ubuntu developers should use
