it seems there is some clarification needed.
say (end of the page):
* November 8th, 2007 : 1st openSUSE Board - Pascal Bleser, Francis
Giannaros, Andreas Jaeger (chairman), Stephan Kulow, Federico
* October 27th, 2008 : 2nd openSUSE Board - Pascal Bleser, Michael
Loeffler (chairman), Federico Mena-Quintero*, Stephen Shaw, Henne
Vogelsang, Bryen Yunashko (*Stephen Shaw stepped in as interim Board
Member for remainder of Federico Mena-Quintero's term May 2009).
* December 22th, 2009 : 3rd openSUSE Board - Pascal Bleser, Rupert
Horstkötter, Michael Loeffler (chairman), Pavol Rusnak, Henne
Vogelsang, Bryen Yunashko.
(I don't see what is the meaning of the "*" after some names)
and this one: http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Board_election#Term
"openSUSE board members can serve for up to two consecutive election
periods. After that they must stand down for at least one election
period, but may run again after the one election period break."
these rules are from nov 2010 only.
So Pascal was board member for 3 years and have to wait one year
before being able to apply again, if ever he wants to :-), according
to the new rules
Henne was member for two years, so reading strictly he shouldn't have
been allowed to be candidate this time, why did the election commity
allow this (they may be a perfectly reasonable reason, I have nothing
at all against Henne)?
All board seats usually have an election period of 2 years, and you can serve up to two
subsequent periods. As Pascal already was a member of the first 'bootstrapping'
2007 and got elected for 2 years 2008, he has to pause now for this election period.
Henne wasn't member of the first board, and is now starting his second period.
We have a graphic showing the board membership timeline:
As you can see, we will have an election again next year, with 3 seats to get elected.
Rupert and Pavol may candidate again, but Bryen has to step back in the next elections
as he already served the last two periodes in the board.
It would be a good practice to not for each board member the election
date and the due term
