I don't know why you are posting your preferences here. Trying to influence the outcome of the ogb election?

One of the worst experiences we have as "participants" of the OpenSolaris "organization" (I am specifically refraining from using the words "member" and "community", I hope you know what I meant) is we don't have any farking idea who gets to vote.

Now those of you who are above the rest of us don't even care about maintaining an appearance of running an honest "election".

This is lowest than the many of the lows I have witnessed in my humble life.

@WWL: Who gets to vote? Go to poll.opensolaris.org, click the Grants tab, sort by Status. All the Core Contributors appear first. They get to vote. There are hundreds of us from dozens of Groups - hardly an elite cabal. As for "running an honest election", I'm not involved in the mechanics of the election and I don't have access to the hardware or software used in it, so tampering would be thoroughly impossible (as well as unthinkable). It's hardly unusual for retiring officeholders to endorse replacement candidates. And although it goes without saying, what I post here is my own personal opinion, not the board's. Thanks for your comments.

You're doing a great service for every one of us that hates Sun and Solaris. Thankyou Keith.
