I am new to CNCF TOC model, so i have a newbi question here for my understanding, so please bear with me. 
Are there any specific reasons that TOC still has 6 GB nominations, rather than keeping these nominations open?

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?
