OGB: Get The Vote Out
By webmink on Mar 15, 2008
We're half-way through the voting for the new OpenSolaris Governing Board as I write there have been 74 votes cast. That means there are plenty of people (nearly 300) who have yet to vote.
If you've not seen them, I wrote some notes on why I encourage you to vote for both of the amendments I proposed. There's been some comments against them from certain community voices, so I'd like to clarify that both of those amendments are submitted by me as a community member in response to community comments and I have tried to incorporate all the feedback I received for both. I was not asked to submit them by any Sun management and they are not "official" Sun amendments.
In those notes I also listed some other candidates and endorsed them as people I would be pleased to work with on the future of OpenSolaris if I was elected. It was noted they are all Sun candidates, and while that reflects the significant presence of Sun employees in the OpenSolaris community, I'd like to make it clear that I would also be pleased to work with candidates like Michal Bielicki, Stephen Lau and Justin Erenkrantz, all of whom have shown the sort of constructive spirit we'll need to take OpenSolaris forward.
Ultimately we need an OGB that has the backing of all the Core Contributors. So if you have a vote please use it, whoever you vote for.
