Clear message

WHEN DO WE VOTE FOR A NEW PROJECT LEAD?

Current suggestion is every two years, shortly before the release of an LTS.

This means, the new project lead is responsible for the development of the following LTS.

HOW DO WE VOTE?

Undecided. If not anonymous, we can use the mail list for that.

WHO IS ALLOWED TO VOTE?

Current suggestion is any member of the launchpad team ~ubuntustudio-contributors.

Any moderated team and restricted team needs to be a member of ~ubuntustudio-contributors. This way, anyone who is hand on involved in Ubuntu Studio in some way, are allowed to vote.

CANDIDATE REQUIREMENTS

  • Candidate needs to be active and available for communication with the Ubuntu Studio community
  • Candidate needs some form of experience in software development in the Linux world, preferably in Debian or Ubuntu.
  • If Candidate is lacking skills in Debian packaging or lacking knowledge of the Debian Policy, at least one other person with those skills needs to commit for the whole 2 year period. Otherwise, the project lead will require outside help for maintaining Ubuntu Studio, which is not optimal.
  • Candidate must create a wiki page from a template, where he/she explains intensions for the next two years of development, and a bit of biography.
