Is the CNCF trying to create a path for TOC Contributors to grow into the TOC? I think its a good thing when folks who are consistently showing up and doing the work are rewarded for it. If we want TOC contributors to stick around, might I suggest that we think carefully about how we make sure they are not squeezed out come election time by new candidates showing up at the 11th hour?

The short answer is yes. But so far, just for the TOC-elected seats. A TOC Contributor did previously win a TOC-elected TOC seat.

I would like to see a change in distribution who votes for the TOC seats. For example:
  • 3 by GB (currently 6)
  • 2 by TOC (currently 2)
  • 2 by End user group (currently 1)
  • 2 by project maintainers (current 0)
Also, it was a bug that initial terms were not staggered, which is why so many seats were up for election at the same time. That issue has been addressed.

Congrats to all the folks on the brand-new TOC! :) I spotted a few concerns in the community around the TOC election and wanted to see if anyone had thoughts about them. 

One was around diversity and the other one was the electorate that gets to vote in the TOC election. Please see examples [1][2][3][4].
