[opensuse-project] Update on petition to call for a non-confidence vote
Dear community members,

A call for the re-election of the openSUSE Board was made by openSUSE
member Pierre Böckmann [1] on the 13th of March 2020.

The openSUSE Board election rules [2] state the following regarding
"forced re-election",

« If 20 per cent or more of the openSUSE members require a new
board, an election will be held for the complete elected
Board seats. »

Therefore, the Election Committee is setting up an electronic petition
whereby openSUSE members can state whether they support a re-election
of the Board by casting a vote. The procedure will follow similar rules
as the previous electronic elections.

openSUSE members [3] having an active membership will receive their
voting link and credential on their member email alias. Once they log
onto the voting platform they will be presented a question that asks:

"Are you in favour of a re-election of the Board?"

There will be only one answer to select and which states:

"Yes, I call for a re-election of the openSUSE Board"

Members who want to sign the petition to call for a non-confidence vote
can do so by voting yes.

The petition will allow the Election Committee to measure whether 20%
of the community are in favour of a re-election.

=== Schedule ===

The petition schedule will be as follows:

25 May 2020
- Publish wiki page about the petition, its schedule & procedure
- Announcement of the petition on the project mailing list &
social media
- Ballot is open

15 June 2020
- Ballot is closed

16 June 2020
- Result is announced on the mailing list

We are hereby calling the community to comment on the above procedure &
schedule. The deadline for comments is 20 May 2020 23h59 CET.

Regards,

Ish Sookun

(on behalf of the Election Committee)
