we updated the main website:
and the Wiki:
and added the elections results:
I hope that this covers all places where we list the board members. If
not please let me know or fix yourself. If you fix yourself it would
be appreciated if you would also add the link to this list (for future
Please note that you should probably nominate a new Secretary asap.
Michael kindly confirmed that he will follow up tagging Charter
Members as inactive if they failed to vote in two consecutive
elections and update the list with addresses. Next year will be the
first where the "inactive status" regulation finally comes into action.
For next year we highly recommend to switch to electronic elections.
The manual effort is way too high with more than 180 members. In total
the elections took a good 60h of work split between three people,
around 200 individual mails and more than 100 Wiki and web site edits.
That is a kilobyte more than just for fun. Greg Buehler manages the
electronic votes for OGC (and they have loads of them all the time)
and he kindly offered to share his experience. Who would be the
counterpart on our side? I'd be happy to report from the last two
elections but will not be able to implement anything.
After FOSS4G we will start the Big Cleanup of governance docs, bylaws,
rules, regulations, policies and procedures. Ugh. Why did I just say this?
