Debian Project Leader Elections 2005


        We are one week into the nomination period for candidates for
 the position of the Debian Project Leader. 

	The new project leader term starts on April 17th, and that
 sets the time line:
 Nomination period:  Feb 7th  00:00:01 UTC -- Feb 28th 00:00:00 UTC
 Campaigning period: Feb 28th 00:00:01 UTC -- Mar 21st 00:00:00 UTC
   Voting period:    Mar 21st 00:00:01 UTC -- Apr 11th 00:00:00 UTC

        Prospective leaders should be familiar with the constitution,
 but, just to review: there's a three week period when interested
 developers nominate themselves, followed by a three week period with
 no nominations [intended for campaigning], followed by three weeks
 for the election itself.

        I intend to collect platform statements from the candidates,
 and publish them on a known location (somewhere under
 www.debian.org/vote) at the end of the nomination period and the
 beginning of the campaign.

        I suggest that the candidates send the platform, preferably in
 HTML/SGML, to the secretary at least a couple of days before the
 publication date.

        This should give the candidates enough time to craft their
 platforms, I should think. The format of the web page is open to
 discussion, but I suggest there be at least three sections:
  a) Introduction/Biography
  b) Major Goal/ Meat of the platform,
  c) Rebuttal. 

        After the publication, there share be a one week period for
 each candidate to create a rebuttal, and the rebuttals shall be
 published on Mar 7th, 2005. 

        I would like to thank  Helen Faulkner and Martin F. Krafft for
 agreeing to take over the stewardship of the DPL debates this year;
 they shall announce the venue, date, and format of this years debate
 at their convenience.  Please direct all concerns about the debate to

        Please make sure that nominations are sent to (or cc:'d to)
 debian-vote, and are cryptographically signed.



Calm down -- it's only ones and zeros.
