I was going to wait until after 3.5 came out to post this, but since you all have the weekend free now, might as well take advantage of it, right? Time to vote for team reps again!
Right now there are 8 team reps for core team. Count ’em, 8! (Counting them: Boren, Jaquith, Nacin, Koop, Aaron Campbell, Scribu, DH-Shredder, and Helen). We need to whittle that down to 2 so that there’s more balance with the other contributor groups. Much simpler voting this time around: just write down the names of the two people you’d like to see as team rep. From now on we’ll be doing these votes every 6 months so we can share the responsibilities and continue to grow new leaders.
Consider before you vote:
- People you vote for should WANT to be the team rep, since there are responsibilities involved. People willing to do the job can help voters by leaving a comment on this post saying they are interested in being a team rep this term.
- Team reps should not already be responsible for another group (and realistically, probably shouldn’t be the release lead, but that’s hard to guess at since the 6 months between team rep votes isn’t the same as the time frame for release cycles).
Easy-peasy, yeah? Voting will end on December 15, so vote before then, please.
Longer explanation of team reps, why we’re voting now, etc after the jump if you don’t know the background or weren’t around when we did team reps before.
