I call for votes on the following ballot to fill one of two vacancies in
the CTTE. Voting will begin now, and end when the outcome is no longer
in doubt or one week from now.

===BEGIN

The Technical Committee recommends that David Bremner <bremner> be
appointed by the Debian Project Leader to the Technical Committee.

A: Recommend to Appoint David Bremner <bremner>
B: Further Discussion

===END

My vote is not a comment on any specific candidate.
As I've examined this process, I've grown increasingly uncomfortable
with it.
One thing worked better this year than any year I've previously been
involved in: the TC got a larger pool of nominees to choose from.
Unfortunately, for me, that underscored some deeper problems in the
process.

* For the most part, the TC is choosing based on name recognition.
Private discussion within the TC suggested this is how some members
were making their decisions. That's not an approach that lends itself
to increasing diversity or to building the best organization.

* The TC doesn't have information (and doesn't seem to know how to get
information) to do better than name recognition plus a brief search of
contributors.debian.org. I don't know how to solve this.

* The TC takes too long. The time from when people are nominated to
when the election results come out is enough to sap the joy and
interest from potential candidates.
People join the TC burned out.
It goes down hill from there.

I look forward to serving with David, and if anything this year's
process may be slightly better than previous years.
That said, I just couldn't bring myself to affirmatively support this
process.
I am not trying to block the process. If this were a consensus action
not a vote, my approach would be to "stand aside," rather than to
"block" or "be part of the consensus."

So, with that vote added, option A defeats B by 4 votes, and we thus
agree to recommend David for the TC.

Mehdi, does this count as sufficiant notification of that fact?

Cheers, Phil.

Yes, thank you for the notification. I'm happy to follow TC's
recommendation and appoint David as a new member of the team.
I'll issue a d-d-a mail soon.

Cheers,
