Hi All,


It’s that time again.  First I would like to take a moment to thank Göran
for running the elections all these past years.  I would also like to thank
you for your vote of confidence in letting me step in to run the elections.
I hope that I can live up to Göran excellent example. 


Every year we elect the SOB (Squeak Oversight Board) consisting of seven 

members from our community. The current board is:




Everything about the election, including schedule and more, can be 

tracked here:





*** Now until Monday 28th of January 3PM (20.00 UTC): Nominations of SOB
members and 



Candidates should nominate themselves and start their campaign on the 

squeak-dev mailing list. Or if you nominate someone else, make sure that 

person really wants to run. :) I will not put anyone on the candidate 

list until that person makes it known on squeak-dev that he/she does 

run. During this period, the candidates should ideally present 

themselves on squeak-dev, unless they have already done so, and the 

community can ask questions.


I encourage you to reach out to potential candidates, people that are active

in the community and represent your views, and ask them to run.  Some people

will not run without encouragement.


*** Monday 28th of January 2013 3PM (20.00 UTC): The candidate list is


*** Monday 28th of January 2013 6PM (23.00 UTC): Online election starts


The voting period is one week long and ballots are sent out via email.

And how do you end up on the voter list? See below. :)


IMPORTANT: New voters will NOT be added once the election is started. 

You MUST try to get on the voter list before the 28th of January 2013 or you

NOT be able to vote.  If your Email has changed make sure it is changed on

list of voters before the election starts. 


*** Monday 4th February 6PM (23.00 UTC): Online election ends


Results will be announced immediately when the election ends.




If you were invited to vote last year you are already on the voter list, 

no worries! If you are a new Squeaker and wish to vote do ONE of the 



      * Get a "known" Squeaker to vouch for you. If a known Squeaker

sends an email to voters (at) squeak.org giving me name and email for 

you, then I will add you.


      * Send an email to voters at squeak.org yourself (and CC to 

squeak-dev if you like) with information/arguments showing me that you 

are indeed serious about voting and that you are indeed a Squeaker. And 

no, I don't have any hints on what you should write! :) Unless you 

totally screw that up, you will probably be added. And no, don't send me 

a 10 page essay ;)


When the voting period starts all voters will receive an email with

instructions and a link to the voting website.


If there are any further questions, just reply *in this thread* and I

will closely track it - or send email to voters (at) squeak.org which 

points to me.


...so let's get on with it!
