Gnome Foundation Membership Committee
Who can vote?

To be able to vote, you need to be a member of the GNOME Foundation and
your membership needs to be valid at least until the end of the
elections. For example, a member whose membership ends on November 30th
2006 won't be able to vote for the elections.

your membership, you have to apply at

If you have applied before this date and if you are accepted, then you
will be able to vote for these elections.

running for election, you may nominate yourself by sending an e-mail to
foundation-announce gnome org with your name, e-mail address, corporate

before November 16th 2006 (23:59 UTC).

You should also send a summary of your candidacy announcement (75 words
or less) to elections gnome org  If you are not yet a GNOME Foundation
member and would like to stand for election, you must first apply for
membership and be accepted to be eligible to run. (You may, however,
announce your candidacy prior to formal acceptance of your application;
should your application not be accepted, you will not be included in the
list of candidates.)
