announcement email until we have 5 elected members. We will
rely on the
board to call the first election in May.
"""

which the TSC has reminded the board about last week.

I don't think it is up to the TSC to decide on the re-election
timeframe. As it stands the TSC got a 2 month mandate. See the quote
above (from Philip's email from feb 10).
That is all I wanted to indicate.
The TSC was asked by the board to figure out the details of the election
which we did in the first meeting as requested and provided our feedback
back to the board. The board naturally has the ultimate say in this.

Cheers,

Richard

The current situation was making the best of a bad set of circumstances,
the plan is to hold elections and nothing has changed in that regard.

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.

Sorry but the current TSC is NOT elected by the eV members.

Actually the board even fails to meet its own "rules" stipulated when
they installed this interim TSC.

From Philip's email from feb 10:
This interim TSC will operate for 2 months when we shall start elections
at two month intervals for the 5 positions on the TSC. The new elected
TSC members will operate under the charter detailed on the wiki here

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.

Sorry but the current TSC is NOT elected by the eV members.

Actually the board even fails to meet its own "rules" stipulated when they installed this interim TSC.

From Philip's email from feb 10:
This interim TSC will operate for 2 months when we shall start elections
at two month intervals for the 5 positions on the TSC. The new elected
TSC members will operate under the charter detailed on the wiki here

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.
