OpenEmbedded eV membership drive
As most of you know, there is an OpenEmbedded eV to provide an umbrella organization for handling various aspects of managing the project. There is a description here: http://wiki.openembedded.net/index.php/Organization.
One of the things we would like to do is vote in new members to the eV (for the .us guys, think 501c3). If you are interested in becoming a member, read the Organization web page and send me an email indicating your desire to become a member. Please include a short paragraph explaining who you are and how you are involved with OpenEmbedded.
After one week, I'll submit the list of names as a voting proposal to the current eV members. Or statutes provide for a one week discussion period, followed by a one week voting period for new member votes.
People ask me why they should join the eV. Besides being a good way to show your support for the OpenEmbedded project, the Technical Steering Committee is elected by the eV members.
To remain an eV member, you must attend the annual General Assembly regularly. (if you miss two consecutive meetings you become an extraordinary member with no voting rights). However, submitting a proxy counts as attending the General Assembly. The current plan is to schedule the GA at ELCE this fall.
If you have any questions, please contact me.
