Four members - Ɓukasz Zemczak, Thomas Ward, Dan Streetman and Robie
Basak - have completed their two year terms on the DMB. Dan has resigned
his seat, and the other three are continuing on a temporary extension to
help the DMB continue operating pending an election. This is a call for
nominations to fill their four 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. Meeting times can be negotiated and adjusted by
board members as needed.

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 five valid nominations are received, voting will commence on
Wednesday, June 8, 2022 and will last for approximately seven days,
ending on or around Wednesday, June 15, 2022.

Please send nominations to developer-membership-board at (which is a private mailing list accessible only by DMB
members) by midnight UTC on Tuesday, May 31, 2022.

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

If nominated, please consider writing a short statement on your wiki
page so that others get a better idea of for whom they are voting. If
you include a link to your statement in your nomination mail or in a
followup, it will be shared when the candidates are announced. The wiki
has suffered from some outages recently; feel free to use a suitable
alternative if needed, such as Discourse[2] or a personal site.

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