Originally I thought I could pass this by as I have already been in Council for 7 terms already. (yes, I had to check it from the election results files to be sure!)

However, I am willing to step in as an example to others; it is really not that tasking position to be in so I encourage all to consider running for Council!

Note that to make it official, you need to send a message to the mailing list maemo-community@maemo.org to announce your candidacy.

Here's the link to my announcement I just posted; http://lists.maemo.org/pipermail/mae...ay/006245.html

There's no dumb questions; I think at least part of the Council responsibilities are documented in various parts of the Maemo Wiki but might not be easily found.

Main tasks of the Council are (at least) the following;
  • act as a common point of focus for community; all kinds of issues can be talked out with the Council and hopefully somethng comes out of it
  • meet regularily to discuss these issues brought to council
  • arrange all elections and referendums of the community
  • call up and orchestrate the annual GA meeting (meeting which selects the officials of the community)
  • care for the garage repository and build machine user priviliges
  • update the wiki documentation
  • keep the mailing list running

Other general tasks, like arranging the Coding Competition last year. (here you can insert anything else that you'd like to do/have/arrange)

Main requirements are willingness to dedicate some time to Community needs, to be able to participate in IRC meeting regularily (we have tried to keep that 1 meeting per week)
There are no strict technical abilities one needs to have, with the exception that someone in council needs to take care of the election machine which means some database skills.

Kind reminder that today is the last day to announce your candidacy by posting it to the mailing list maemo-community@maemo.org.

Also I have chosen that I won't candidate for the next term. Reason is this famous 'no time' as I have lately become entrepreneur + have other job and studies.

I wish good luck for all candidates

Thanks I appreciate, but I am afraid I won't be able to do this as I did before, so I'd rather nominate *ALL* candidates that we're not elected before, I have nothing on elected ones, but it's good to give a extra chance to those who are supporting this community.

I posted mine a few hours later. I'm on UTC -5 so it was actually still 23rd May here.

My email hasn't appeared on the mailing list web archives yet. I got an automated message saying that it was awaiting moderation so I guess I just have to be patient.

As far as I can tell, we are still one candidate short to form a council. What happens now?

I could probably give it a crack. Exams are finished in two weeks, which finishes off the degree. So, I should have some spare time on my plate and I would love to help give back.
How many hours does it average per week?

Either way, I have been planning to go through threads; taking notes and summaries for updating wikis, etc.
