Re: [paho-dev] Vote for Committer status for James Sutton was started by Ian Craggs

Ok, forget that, Benjamin has pointed out where I should do the nomination properly!

iot.paho Committers,
This automatically generated message signals that Ian Craggs has nominated
James Sutton as a Committer on the iot.paho project. The reason given is as

I started this nomination as a message on the mailing list, but it was
suggested that I do this using the Eclipse portal facilities, which is what
I'm doing now.  Apologies if it means you have to vote twice!

A couple of months back, Andy Piper gave notice of his wish to step down as
Eclipse Paho Project co-lead, not because he is unenthusiastic about MQTT
but because he has moved onto other things.   I wish to thank Andy for all
his contributions to Paho.

To help me with the workload involved in running the Paho project, I would
like to nominate my colleague James Sutton as co-lead, to replace Andy.

Although very young (to my aging eyes!) James has shown a sense of
responsibility and ownership for the Paho software with which he has taken
on: the Java and Android clients, plus helping with various other
components when the need arises.  He was a significant help in the move of
Paho to Github, writing a script to copy issues, and helping Roger, myself
and other team members with the migration itself.

Paho isn't my only responsibility at work, so having James available to
help with project administration would be really valuable to me, and to the
continuing success of the project.   I think the position will also give
James valuable experience in the running of open source projects, which
will benefit him in the future.

The vote is being held via the MyFoundation portal: voters *must* use the
portal for the votes to be properly recorded.  The voting will continue
until either all 11 existing Committers have voted or until they have been
given enough time to vote, even if they do not do so (defined as at least
one week). James Sutton must receive at least three +1s and no -1s for a
successful election.

Eligible Committers must cast their votes through their My Foundation
portal page (do NOT just reply to this email; your vote will not be
correctly recorded unless you use the portal):

The project Committers eligible to vote are:

     Kamil Baczkowicz
     Ian Craggs
     Andy Gelme
     Roger Light
     Dave Locke
     Nicholas O'Leary
     Frank Pagliughi
     Paolo Patierno
     Andy Piper
     Al Stockdill-Mander
     James Sutton

*NOTE*: Successful elections are left open for a maximum of 120 days to
allow for processing of paperwork.  After that time the election will be
expired, regardless of its current status.  Should papework processing on
the part of the candidate take more time than allowed, a new election will
have to be held.
