Debian Project Leader Elections 2012: Call for nominations

Hi, According to the constitution (5.2. Appointment), project leader elections should begin “six weeks before the leadership post becomes vacant, or (if it is too late already) immediately.”

The new project leader term starts on Tuesday the 17th of April,
2012. The time line looks like:

| Period | Start | End |
|————+————————–+—————————-|
| Nomination | Sunday, March 4th, 2012 | Saturday, March 10th, 2012 |
| Campaign | Sunday, March 11th, 2012 | Saturday, March 31st, 2012 |
| Vote | Sunday, April 1st, 2012 | Saturday, April 14th, 2012 |

Prospective leaders should be familiar with the constitution, but
just to review: there’s a one week period when interested
developers can nominate themselves and announce their platform,
followed by a three week period intended for campaigning, followed
by two weeks for the election itself.

I intend to collect platform statements from the candidates, and
publish them at http://www.debian.org/vote/2012/platforms/ at the
end of the nomination period, which means around March 11th.

I suggest that the candidates send the platform, preferably in
wml or HTML, to the secretary at least a day before the
publication date.

The format of the web page is open to discussion, but I suggest
there be at least three sections:
- Introduction / Biography
- Major Goal / Meat of the platform
- Rebuttal.

The candidates can make a rebuttal. I would like to receive them
in the first week of the campaign period, so I can publish them
around March 18th.

Details and results for the vote will be published at:

http://www.debian.org/vote/2012/vote_001

Please make sure that nominations are sent to (or cc:’d to)
debian-vote, and are cryptographically signed.
