Hello everyone,

Friendly reminder that the TAB elections are coming soon:

The Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board (TAB) serves as the
interface between the kernel development community and the Linux
Foundation. The TAB advises the Foundation on kernel-related matters,
helps member companies learn to work with the community, and works to
resolve community-related problems before they get out of hand.  We
also support the Code of Conduct committee in their mission.

The board has ten members, one of whom sits on the Linux Foundation
board of directors.

The election to select five TAB members will be held at the 2019 Kernel Summit
in Lisbon, Portugal September 9-11. As has been announced[2], we are moving to
an electronic voting system this year. Further details about the exact voting
procedures will be coming soon. Anyone is eligible to stand for election,
simply send your nomination to:

tech-board-discuss at lists.linux-foundation.org

With your nomination, please include a short candidate statement. This candidate
statement should focus on why you are running and what you hope to accomplish
on the TAB. We will be collecting these statements and making them publicly 
available.

The deadline for receiving nominations is 9am GMT+1 on September 9th (the first
day of Kernel Summit). Due to the use of electronic voting, this will be a hard
deadline!

Current TAB members, and their election year:

Jon Corbet		2017
Greg Kroah-Hartman	2017
Steven Rostedt		2017
Ted Tso			2017
Tim Bird		2017

Chris Mason		2018
Laura Abbott		2018
Olof Johansson		2018
Kees Cook		2018
Dan Williams		2018

The five slots from 2017 are all up for election.  As always, please
let us know if you have questions, and please do consider running.

Thanks,
Laura

[1] TAB members sit for a term of two years, and half of the board is
up for election every year. Five of the seats are up for election now.
The other five are halfway through their term and will be up for
election next year.

Hello everyone,

Friendly reminder that the TAB elections are coming soon:

The Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board (TAB) serves as the 
interface between the kernel development community and the Linux 
Foundation. The TAB advises the Foundation on kernel-related matters, 
helps member companies learn to work with the community, and works to 
resolve community-related problems before they get out of hand.  We're 
also working with kernel maintainers to help refine the new code of 
conduct, and serving as the initial point of contact for code of conduct 
issues.

The board has ten members, one of whom sits on the Linux Foundation 
board of directors.

The election to select five TAB members will be held at the 2018 Kernel 
Summit in Vancouver, Canada.  The elections will take place at the 
conference center on Tuesday November 13th, at 5:30pm.

The election will be open to all attendees of all of the Linux 
Foundation events taking place that week in Vancouver.  Anyone is 
eligible to stand for election, simply send your nomination to:

tech-board-discuss at lists.linux-foundation.org

The deadline for receiving nominations is up until the beginning of the 
event where the election is held.

In past years, everyone running for the TAB has given a short speech 
before the voting began.  We've received feedback that the speeches add 
logistical complexity for the election, and may not be the best 
indicator of how well qualified someone is for the TAB.

Instead of speeches, this year we're asking candidates to include 
statements about why they would like to participate in the TAB.  These 
will be combined into a slideshow running during the election, and 
available via a public google doc at this location:

https://goo.gl/rPEc2v

Even though the deadline for nominations is right before voting begins, 
any statements must be received by Monday November 12th at 5PM Pacific, 
so that we have time to setup the slideshow.

Current TAB members, and their election year:

Chris Mason 2016
H. Peter Anvin 2016
Olof Johansson 2016
Rik van Riel	2016
Dan Williams 2016

Jon Corbet 2017
Greg Kroah-Hartman 2017
Steven Rostedt 2017
Ted Tso	2017
Tim Bird	2017

The five slots from 2016 are all up for election.  As always, please let 
us know if you have questions, and please do consider running.

Chris Mason, TAB Chair

[1] TAB members sit for a term of two years, and half of the board is up
for election every year. Five of the seats are up for election now.
The other five are halfway through their term and will be up for
election next year.

Hello everyone,

The Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board (TAB) serves as the
interface between the kernel development community and the Foundation.
The TAB advises the Foundation on kernel-related matters, helps member
companies learn to work with the community, and works to resolve
community-related problems before they get out of hand.  The board has
ten members, one of whom sits on the LF board of directors.  The 
election to select five TAB members will be held at the 2017 Kernel
Summit in Prague, Czech Republic.  The elections will take place at the
conference center on Wednesday Oct 25th, shortly before the evening
reception.

The election will be open to all attendees of all of the Linux
Foundation events taking place that week in Prague.  Anyone is eligible
to stand for election, simply send your nomination to:

tech-board-discuss at lists.linux-foundation.org

Just before the election, everyone will have a chance to introduce
themselves and briefly talk about why they would like to participate on
the Technical Advisory Board.  This year, we're encouraging everyone to
include those details along with their nomination, which we will compile
into an online document for quick reference here:

https://goo.gl/ADVFtT

The deadline for receiving nominations is up until the beginning of the
election event.  Any statements for the online document need to be sent
by Monday Oct 23rd.  Please get your nomination in early so everyone has
a chance to review the nominations before voting.

Chris Mason, TAB Chair

[1] TAB members sit for a term of two years, and half of the board is up
for election every year. Five of the seats are up for election now.  The
other five are halfway through their term and will be up for election
next year.
