For the current 2009 election of the openSUSE board, we have three
seats for election and three candidates running unopposed. As our
existing election rules did not anticipate this scenario, the Election
Committee has made the following decision:
The seats up for election include one Novell-employed position and two
non-Novell-employed positions. Pavol Rusnak is running for the
Novell-employed seat and Rupert Horstkötter and Bryen Yunashko are
running for the non_novell seats.
The election committee will declare the candidates as elected by end
of Monday, 7th of December, if nobody else steps up in the respective
group to run for the election. Otherwise we will have an election in
This means that if further candidates for the non-Novell seats declare
candidacy, we will do an election for these two seats - and if further
candidates for the Novell seat step up, we run an election for that
one seat - and if candidates for both step up, we elect all seats.
