During this nomination cycle, is there any reason that we can't:
  • Make all nominations public, with who / what org nominated the nominee.
  • Some ability for a public comment period on the nominees. If there is concern around public comments, the comments could only go to those who will vote on the nominee (though I would greatly prefer everything be fully public).
This would apply to all types of seats (GB/TOC/End user/etc.).

I think this would vastly increase transparency and community trust in the process.

There will be 11 seats total:

- 6 nominees from the Governing Board (GB)
- 2 nominees from the End User Community (up from 1)
- 1 nominee from the non-sandbox project maintainers (up from 0)
- 2 nominees from the other 9 members of the TOC

For the End User TOC seats, it will be the end user members:

For the non sandbox maintainer seat, it will be the non-sandbox maintainers here (

For the GB selected seats, it's the GB:

Amye will have a post out Monday describing all of this in more detail with the timeline.

Hope this helps, there's a lot of constituents that make up the TOC now.

Thanks for the blog post. Do we have numbers for how many people are eligible to cast votes in each "Selecting Group"? As i read it, just 3 of the seats (2 from EUC and 1 from non-sandbox) are where the "general community" have a say in. Is that correct?

Chris, Amye, et al

With the TOC adding 2 seats, what do people do if they want to stand?
More generally as we discussed at Kubecon, how are we making the TOC
process more open & inclusive?
