The newly elected Hildon Foundation Council (HFC) provide the new Hildon Foundation Board eligibility rules (see appendix) for Board of Directors elections and
announce elections for HiFo BoD.

The nomination period for said BoD elections will start on the June 1st 0:00UTC and will end on June 14th 23:59UTC, the contemplation period runs from June 15th
0:00UTC till June 21st 23:59UTC
, and voting then runs from June 22nd 0:00UTC till June 28th 23:59UTC.

Appendix - Hildon Foundation Board Candidate Eligibility Rules
  1. Nominations will be accepted 3 weeks before the election begins from any community member with a karma of 100 or above.
  2. Nominees with a commercial interest in Maemo or Hildon Foundation, such as working for Nokia - or any other company involved with software development - must declare their interest when advertising their nomination. Failure to do so may result in the HFC, declaring their nomination invalid and so bar them from standing in the current election.
  3. Elections last for 1 week.
  4. Only community members who have had maemo.org accounts for over 3 months and have karma of 10 or above, may vote.
  5. Each community member eligible to vote gets a single ballot.
  6. The 7 nominees voted for most, as counted by a single transferrable vote system are elected. (For special cases see HiFo bylaws.)
  7. There is no limit to the number of times a board member can stand for re-election.

Looking at the number of thanks after two days, I think this
thread is worth a BUMP to gain more attention.

Have a look at https://lists.maemo.org/mailman/list...aemo-community.
The nominations are in the archive. Woody + GeneralAntilles self-nominated in may, Chemist in june.
Some good fellas around here should honestly consider doing the same as we definitely need more candidates!

Board of Director elections shall be for seven (7) seats, unless less than nine (9)
members are nominated for the Board of Directors, in which case only five (5) seats shall be chosen
in that election. If fewer than six (6) members are nominated for the Board of Directors, only three
(3) seats shall be chosen in that election. If at any time fewer than four (4) nominees remain after the
nomination period for either the Foundation Council or the Board of Directors, the nomination period
for that body shall be extended by least seven (7) days, and a second announcement of election shall blabla
Bylaws part X - NOMINATIONS AND ELECTIONS has all the details.

Thank-you! A list really should be on the Wiki, or a link posted. But you have done enough! You are right about more needed - though these are fraught waters....

I just compiled them on the wiki now. 3 candidates confirmed.

There's potentially one more declaration from khm. Not sure it's it's valid or if the karma requirements are met.

Is a scenario possible that a fourth person will volounteere just so that we could push through the voting and no one would vote for that person? If yes I'm all in just for the sake of finishing this mess with a happy end

@fw190, according to point 6 in the first post, 4 nominees just would not cut the mustard.
