hi folks

please can someone explain, in plain language, what this means

i am unable to make sense of the written materials presented thus far,
which may well be due to my own inadequacy

in particular, what does this mean? "five seats are open for
nomination by the GB, End User Community and Graduating + Incubating
Maintainers. Nominations are open for the three Selecting Groups."

also, whatever the window to dec 20th means, it feels short and
untimely as we hit 'holiday season'.

The Maintainers Election Policy has been updated for Graduating and Incubating maintainers to nominate themselves.

Maintainers Nomination
To nominate themselves for an open position, a graduated or incubating maintainer needs to send an email to the private list cncf-maintainer-nomination@... prior to the announced deadline with a maximum 1-page nomination pitch which includes the nominee's name, contact information, and a supporting statement identifying the nominee's experience in CNCF domains and interest in the position. The nominee needs to cc (i.e., copy) 2 other maintainers from 2 different graduated or incubating CNCF projects who each need to group reply endorsing the nomination. The 2 endorsers also need to be employed by different companies than the nominee and each other (i.e., the nominee and endorsers must each work for a different group of Related Companies as defined in the CNCF Charter section 14). It is the nominee’s responsibility to ensure that their nomination and both endorsements are sent prior to the deadline.
The deadline for this nomination period is 12pm Pacific time, December 20th.
