We are in the campaigning period for this year’s Debian Project Leader (DPL) election; voting begins April 2, 2010. Platforms have been posted for each of the four candidates—Stefano Zacchiroli, Wouter Verhelst, Charles Plessy, and Margarita Manterola. More here
None of the candidates plan on having a second in charge (2IC) or a DPL team this year. All agree that Debian funds should be spent on necessary hardware costs and facilitating meetings. Margarita and Stefano were both in favor of funding marketing efforts, such as booths at conferences. Stefano would also like to see the project be more transparent about the money flowing in and out.
