Hey ho!

The voting engine has been triggered and about half of the token emails sent already.
It is expected that the last mails are sent in about 5...6 hours, nicely before the voting booth opens at midnight UTC!

If you have not received your voting token yet, don't be alarmed...
Be alarmed only tomorrow, and be sure to check your spam folderia etc

If, after doublechecking you still have not found the email, contact me and I'll fix it for you.

Indeed, good catch!

It's fixed now;

Community Council Election Q1 2018
The voting period for the specified election starts on 2017-12-08 23:59:59 (UTC) and ends on 2017-12-17 23:59:59 (UTC). It is not possible to vote now.

If you don't understand the error, you should probably contact the Maemo Community mailing list, which can be reached at maemo-community@maemo.org.

Thanks.

btw.: I know the rules. But do we need to cut the council down to 3 as only 5 peeps available?
3 is so easy to miss a meeting and decisions. Work load is heavier and cannit be distributed.
So maybe a redesign of Vereinssatzung?

Hmm yes, the thing is we can change the council rules if we desire to do so.
All it takes, is a referendum and notarizing and registering the new rules in court.

However there is a simpler solution; all we ever need is 7 candidates and then 5 can be elected...

In court? Really? Why would a court need to be involved in internal business of a dwindling group of old geezers?

If two more candidates is all that takes, I can volunteer to run as long as I do not get elected.

Because Council rules are included in the Maemo Community e.V. rules, and e.V. is a legal instrument.

It is really desirable to have a larger Council. Many think that council work can take a large chunk of their time. They are mistaken!

It may be that in the past, there was a lot that needed doing, etc. However, having served the current term, I can attest to the fact that there really isn't a lot of work now. Also even if something could come up now and then, it would most likely not be an issue needing immediate attention - meaning that it could be handled at another time.

Finally, of course Council is team work. Even if one is assigned to do something, and situations come up that mean he/she no longer has the time to do it, it could be delegated to someone else in council. All it would take is a brief notification via email or IRC

As a former Council member, I too can confirm.

The reason I did not run this time was not for the lack of time, or too much work, or anything like that. It was purely because I did not feel I was being useful and I do not have a reason to believe that changing this time around. But as I say, if you want more members and all that is standing in the way is a shortage of candidates, I would be happy to pose as a dummy candidate. It would be the one useful thing I could do, even though it would make a mockery out of the whole process.
