NOMINATIONS OPEN: ZLC Voting seat
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As the vast majority of the Zowe Community is in favor of replacing the open seat on the ZLC, I'd like to formally open the nomination and election period.
Based on the ZLC structure and processes ( see https://github.com/zowe/zlc/blob/master/process/structure.md ), I'd like to propose the following schedule for the election:
TODAY: Call for Nominations, email all Zowe project committers11/25: Nominations close, 11:59pm ET
11/27: Voting period opens, all current Zowe project committers vote, vote by electronic mail or CIVS as appropriate
12/4: Voting period ends, 11:59pm ET
12/6: Election results announced
We have one nomination already received for Joe Winchester. If you would like to nominate someone else or nominate yourself, please email your name and rationale for serving on the ZLC to me by 11/25 at 11:59pm ET. Note that in order to serve on the ZLC, you must be a Zowe Committer.

First and foremost, I would personally like to thank Matt for his service on the ZLC. There has been amazing progress in year 1 of Zowe which Matt has spearheaded, and his leadership has set the tone for the way the community will continue to grow in years to come.
The ZLC had a discussion yesterday on next steps with backfilling this seat, in light of the ZLC structure and processes ( see https://github.com/zowe/zlc/blob/master/process/structure.md ), and came up with two possible steps forward...
1) Immediately hold an election to backfill Matt's seat per the guidelines established ( https://github.com/zowe/zlc/blob/master/process/structure.md#composition ) with the term of this seat to be through the planned elections for the full ZLCin early January.
2) Start the process of the full ZLC re-election now, with the terms effective 1/1/2020 and the 1 year seats effective through 12/31/2020 and the 2 year seats effective through 12/31/2021.
The ZLC wanted community feedback on the way to proceed. Please share your preference on the approach on this thread. The ZLC would like to wrap up the discussion by the end of next week ( 11/15/2019 ) and then will discuss a plan for next steps at the subsequent ZLC meeting.
Let me know of any questions or concerns you might have.
