OpenSolaris Elections Disappointment

The results of the OpenSolaris Elections are in.  Congratulations to the new board members!

So why did I entitle this post Elections Disappointment?  My complaint is with the "community priorities" question which was asked; this was a chance for core contributors to indicate what they felt were pressing priorities.  I was not happy with the OGB's choice (which I didn't know about until I voted) to reuse the same set of priorities questions from last year.  One of which was:

  • Deploy a public code review facility on opensolaris.org

Which was subsequently identified by voters in this election as the #3 priority.  Did the OGB believe that we did not accomplish this goal in the past year?  I know that I took the results of the last poll (it was voted #3 in that poll, too) to heart, and worked hard to make that goal a reality, publicized it using the official channels, and have been enhancing it and taking care of it since that time, mostly on my own time.  I felt that my contribution was really undermined by the question.

Second: Who voted for this item as a priority?  If you voted for this as a priority, I would like to hear why you did (anonymously is fine).  Are you unaware that cr.opensolaris.org exists?  Are you unsatisfied with the service it provides?

I hope the new OGB will find a way to reformulate a more cogent poll question about priorities.
