The excitement has been building for weeks and now the most important
phase of the openSUSE Board elections begins today -- Election Time!
Two seats are open for election by members of the openSUSE Project. The
first seat is vacated by Henne Vogelsang who has completed his two-term
limit. The second seat is currently held by Manu Gupta, appointed to
fill in for Peter Linnel who stepped down in August of 2012. Both seats
are for a two-year term that begins in January 2013 and ends in January
How to Vote:
If you are a current member of the openSUSE Project, you will soon
receive an email with instructions on how to vote via openSUSE Connect
polling system. You must be a member in good standing on or before 27
November 2012. If you have not yet received an email within the next 24
hours, please contact the Election Officials committee at
Each eligible voter will be given two votes to cast, one for each seat
to be elected in this cycle.
Voting begins today and concludes at 23:00 UTC on 16 December 2012.
But I can't decide!:
With 8 excellent candidates running for two seats, we feel your pain.
Luckily, there's two ways to learn more about the candidates.
Option 1: Platforms and Blogs
Read the candidates platforms and blogs here. 
Option 2: Live Q&A Debate
Tomorrow, Thursday at 15:00 UTC  , candidates will gather in the
#opensuse-project channel on Freenode IRC network. A two hour session,
moderated by the Election Officials, this will be an opportunity for you
to ask questions live.
Can't make it, no problem. We will post transcript of the debate here.
