Re: [microprofile-wg] MicroProfile Steering Committee Committer Member election notice

 Hi John:

Thanks for starting this communication.  

Kicking off this election is in our queue for December. 

Please note we need to ensure the timeline of the election takes into account the short December month (vacation/holidays) as well as resources for engagement both on the community and Eclipse Foundation side.  We could in fact start the announcement/nomination phase as early as December 1, 2021.

Regarding eligibility, for clarity and as per the Eclipse Bylaws, any Committer Member of MicroProfile is entitled to stand for election, including those who work for a Member company.  So while there may be a verbal general agreement among Participant members, the Bylaws take precedence and no such restriction on who is eligible can actually exist.    

Regarding paperwork, committers on MicroProfile projects already have executed the Individual Participation Agreement as an individual, or work for a Member company with a signed Participation Agreement in place so there should be no additional paperwork requirement.

Best Regards,

Edwin reminded me a couple weeks ago that we are getting close to the end of the working year and that we need to start thinking about the annual Committer Member election. Committer Members are defined in the MicroProfile Charter. Thanks Kevin for digging up the dates - last year we started the committer member vote on Dec 14th and ended Dec 21st, and we requested volunteers on Dec 3rd.This year, although I suggest starting the election on Monday, December 6th although we could potentially push it out to December 13th. I'm putting this out there to give interested parties more time to consider joining the MicroProfile Steering Committee as a committer member. When ready, reply to this email stating interest in running in the election.

Note: Only MicroProfile committers are eligible. Also, I believe last year we had a general agreement, much like in the Jakarta EE WG, that committer members should not be employees of (or members of in case of JUGs) current Corporate Member organizations. MicroProfile committers vote for Committer Members.

Feel free to comment on the vote date and the corporate member agreement.

Paul, do you have anything to add? I think that Committer Members would have to sign the MPWG individual participation agreement. Anything else?
