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