I have to regretfully inform you, that due to technical difficulties in
our tool connect.opensuse.org
we have to put current elections on hold.
I deeply apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused to you.
Technical problems that many of you noticed on the mailinglist proven
to have more than visual consequences and our administrators are now
looking in the issue trying to figure out how to solve the underlying
Election team will update election schedule and inform you about next
steps as soon as possible (whether we can continue/recover current poll
or if we will need to start from scratch).
Kind regards from election team
Thank you for the announcement and all the work you & the team have
and will do to resolve this situation.
Due to the exceptional circumstances, the openSUSE Board will continue
operating with it's currently elected members.
In the unlikely event of any major Board decisions being required
during this exceptional extension of the current Board, we will
consider options such as delaying the decision until the new board
members are chosen, or possibly including all of the candidates in the
decision making process.
Our priority is ensuring continuity while these technical issues get
fixed and will do our best to balance the needs for timely decisions
with the expectation that we should have been transitioning to a new
elected Board chosen by the community.
Once we get back on track, with elections that effectively fill the
two positions to be vacated by Kostas and Michal, the 2 year
term-length of those new board members will start from the date of
their election. Or in other words, once we're able to fix these
technical issues, the communities chosen board members will still
serve a full 2 year term from that date, so the candidates will not be
disadvantaged by this delay.
