We are still looking for candidates to join the Ubuntu Technical Board!
The call remains open until November 27th, 2022, at 23:59 UTC. This is a bit longer than initially anticipated.
Are you interested or do you know of someone who you want to see in this role? Please submit the nomination.
What is the Ubuntu Technical Board?
The Ubuntu Technical Board is responsible for the technical direction of Ubuntu. It makes decisions on package selection, packaging policy, installation systems and processes, kernel, X server, display management, library versions, and dependencies. The board works with relevant teams to establish a consensus on the right path to take, especially where diverse elements of Ubuntu cannot find consensus on shared components. The current Technical Board is expiring at the end of the year, and the Community Council would like to confirm a new Technical Board, consisting of five people, who will serve for two years. The eligibility requirements are:
Who is eligible?
Everyone who meets the following criteria:
- Be an Ubuntu Core Developer
- Be available during typical meeting hours [see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/TechnicalBoardAgenda ]
- Have insight into the Ubuntu Development process, architecture, and technical culture
How do you nominate yourself or someone else?
Send the Community Council an email (
community-council AT lists.ubuntu.com). With your nomination. Note that you can nominate yourself too!
How does the election work?
The call remains open until November 27th, 2022, at 23:59 UTC. After that, the Community Council will review the submissions, submit them to Mark Shuttleworth for shortlisting, and proceed with a vote by the Ubuntu Development team.
