Subject Annoucenemnt: APR Chair election
Date Mon, 16 Sep 2002 10:55:29 GMT


The APR PMC Chair, Ryan Bloom, has indicated that he wants to step down.
Hence elections are needed.

Logistics for those elections (v1.05)

All communication from here will be ONLY on:


and for the committers copied on:


So make sure you are subscribed to those accounts and that your apache.org
mail is being forwarded or read. Notice that qmail/ezmlm allows for using
<apr-get.##_##@apr.apache.org to obtain historic messages.

Volunteers:	<apr-vote@apache.org>
		Eric Cholet (0x6664C078)
		Lars Eilebrecht (0xF88341D9)
		Dirk-Willem van Gulik (0xEC140B81)

Seat: 		The machine daedalus.apache.org
                is used as the mail relay, the time
                reference and the mail folder with
                all communication.

The procedure is as follows (cut off just before 0:00 GMT of the next day;
arrival time on mail.apache.org/ is what counts).

 2002-9-16 	= Announcement

		This message is send to pmc@apr.apache.org,
		dev@apr.apache.org, members@apache.org,
		serv-dev@apr.apache.org, board@apache.org

		= Publication of the eligible voters
		  list opened for inspection.

		This message is send to dev@apr.apache.org

		Note that people getting commit access after this
		date will not be able to vote.

		= Call for nomination made.

		This message is send to dev@apr.apache.org

		You can either nominate yourself or you can nominate
		someone else.

		What counts is that the confirmation from the nominee
		him/herself is received by the voting volunteers.

		Nominations are made by posting to dev@apr.apache.org
		and Cc: apr-vote@apache.org a short note of the  candidature.

		Whether you nominate yourself, or whether you are nominated
		by someone else; the nominee MUST post a message to
		dev@apr.apache.org and Cc: apr-vote@apache.org with his
		candidature, a short description of who you are and what
		you want to accomplish.

		PMC Seats are open to anyone. Regardless as to whether you
		are a committer, lurker or coder. And you can even
		nominate complete outsiders (assuming he or she would
		consent of course).

		The volunteers handling the vote cannot be nominated.

		The nomination of the volunteer should include the email
		address of the nominee - and it really should be a
		valid one.

		If there are 1 or less nominees the elections are

 2002-9-22	Nominations close.

 2002-9-23	Final candidate list verified and announced.
                Final voter roster verified and announced.

		Both these messages are send to dev@apr.apache.org. Once
		posted you have 24 hours for any appeals or to raise
		any issues not addressed in the run up.

 2002-9-24	Opening Ballot.

		Each voter on the final roster will receive a message
		from the automated 'voter' system.

		Your @apache.org address is used. Your account on
		cvs.apache.org must be functional in order to vote.

		The ballot will contain the names of each nominee and
		the short description they provided.

		And a reminder to check that you did get such is posted on

 2002-10-1	Ballot closes.
 2002-10-2	Final tally made and results published

		The result of this vote is the name of the candidate with
		the largest number of votes; the total number of valid
		votes, abstains and rejected votes.

		The results are posted to dev@apr.apache.org,
		pmc@apr.apache.org and board@apache.org.

 		Record of ballot send to the Archive.

At any time, if you see irregularities, issues, have worries or have
complaints about the procedure - complain to


 Be aware that there is escalation possible to the PMC or, if things are
not resolved, to


And that the ASF Board Secretariat will have a full record.

Let the games begin :-)

Your voting volunteers,

Eric Cholet, Lars Eilebrecht and Dirk-Willem van Gulik <apr-vote@apache.org>
