OpenStack Technical Committee Election in Full Swing: What Do YOU Want?

Nermina Miller - October 14, 2013 -

The election to renew 11 seats in the OpenStack Technical Committee (TC) is on. Through October 17, active technical contributors (ATCs) can cast their votes for 25 members of the OpenStack Foundation. The TC oversee the work on the existing programs and determine the inclusion of new programs such as Savanna or Ironic.

The candidates nominate themselves, with the exception of two candidates who were elected to a one-year term last Spring. The current candidates are (in an alphabetical order):

The first- through sixth- place winners will serve for a one-year term, while the rest of the top 11 vote-getters will be elected to a six-month term. (For those who are interested in the deep down details, the votes will be collected using the Condorcet Internet Voting System (CIVS) and a Condorcet algorithm (Schulze/Beatpath/CSSD variant), which is similar to “instant run-off” voting but guarantees that a candidate who is more popular than the others, when compared to each of them, will, in fact, win.)  For more information on the election itself, please see the TC Election wiki.

As in the case of each semi-annual election, the TC will propose a TC chair. The final selection will be determined using the Condorcet system. The Board of Directors will then approve the TC chair.

We’re interested in what the community has to say about all this. To see each candidate’s position you can click on their name above, but what is it that you would like to see from the the Technical Committee?  What about an individual member? What would you do if you were a TC Member? Please let us know by leaving a comment!
