Are there any specific reasons that TOC still has 6 GB nominations, rather than keeping these nominations open? 

To add a little context for those who don't know...

The Governing Board (GB) gets to select 6 of the people who hold seats on the TOC. People are nominated, vetted, and then the GB votes to select the people. They don't all come up for re-election at the same time. You can see whose seat is up for re-election over at https://github.com/cncf/toc. The End User community (not everyone who is an end user but end users as opposed to vendors who are members of the CNCF) has a similar process to select among themselves.
Thanks for clarification Matt. Just started reading the charter to better understand it.

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 (maintainers.cncf.io)

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.

Chris,

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?

Thanks,
Dims

The TOC election schedule has always been described here openly on GitHub:

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?
