Subject [DISCUSS] Would you like to be the new chair of AOO ?
Date Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:39:04 GMT

I will resign at the board meeting in September, so the current schedule
looks like:
Accept/Nominate/Discuss candidates until August 16th
Discussion ends August 23th
Voting ends September 4th
Resolution send to board September 5th.
New chair takes over immediately after the board meeting.

The reason for my resignation is an ongoing disagreement between part of
the PMC
and myself. I expected the PMC to be willing to make changes when I was
but at least my way seems to be counterproductive. The 2 main discrepancies
- the board reports which, even though discussed publicly, have been the
cause of
  negative discussions after being sent to board
- the attempt to make a cooperation with LO, caused many discussions, but
  with adding restrictions, that made it impossible for me to continue the
I do not want to go deeper into details, since it does not help finding a
new chair.

As a volunteer I want to work, where the work makes a positive difference,
and not cause
endless negative discussions. I hope a new chair can help unite the PMC and
help drive
the project forward.

The PMC was informed about this July 24th, and after some discussions,
the time has come to find new candidates.

Please use this mail thread to announce yourself as a candidate, or to
someone else (remark that person must state whether or not the nomination is
accepted). There are no formal limits to being a nominee, apart from

The rules for the vote, will depend on the number of candidates but is
a majority vote, with PMC votes being binding.
