I read the wiki pages and am aware of the facts. My question was rather
directed into peoples opinions, not to say feelings, if someone unknown comes
around, joins the project and immediately runs for board.
I just don't want to step on someones feet if it's not necessary. So if you or
anyone else has in that regard I'd like to hear them.
Sorry for the delay, Vinz.
The rules are quite clear. If you are an openSUSE Member in Good
Standing at the time you apply to be a Candidate, you are eligible to run.
As for other peoples opinions, feelings, or their little toeseys, no
need to worry about that.
They can let their opinions help them decide who to vote for.
I, and the rest of the Elections Committee, say:
Go for it. Let's get several good Candidates running in this election.
BTW: No need to send your campaign material to the Elections Committee.
We do not make decisions based on that. The decisions are based on
the rules, alone.
All you need to do is provide us with proof (give us a link, f.e.) that
your Membership has been approved.
Member in good standing?
That means, following our Guidelines of conduct, and having already been
accepted by the Membership Committee. No time limit implied in any rule.
The only other BIG rule is, no more than a certain number from any one
company or organization. Does not look like you fail, there, either.
