Hello everyone,

Quick update on the TAB elections, we have 5 nominations so far:

Jon Corbet
Greg Kroah-Hartman
Shuah Khan
Steve Rostedt
Ted Tso

The elections are next week, please feel free to contact me if you have 
any questions about the TAB.


The Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board (TAB) serves as the
interface between the kernel development community and the Foundation.
The TAB advises the Foundation on kernel-related matters, helps member
companies learn to work with the community, and works to resolve
community-related problems before they get out of hand.  The board has
ten members, one of whom sits on the LF board of directors.  The 
election to select five TAB members will be held at the 2017 Kernel
Summit in Prague, Czech Republic.  The elections will take place at the
conference center on Wednesday Oct 25th, shortly before the evening

The election will be open to all attendees of all of the Linux
Foundation events taking place that week in Prague.  Anyone is eligible
to stand for election, simply send your nomination to:

tech-board-discuss at lists.linux-foundation.org

Just before the election, everyone will have a chance to introduce
themselves and briefly talk about why they would like to participate on
the Technical Advisory Board.  This year, we're encouraging everyone to
include those details along with their nomination, which we will compile
into an online document for quick reference here:


The deadline for receiving nominations is up until the beginning of the
election event.  Any statements for the online document need to be sent
by Monday Oct 23rd.  Please get your nomination in early so everyone has
a chance to review the nominations before voting.

Chris Mason, TAB Chair

[1] TAB members sit for a term of two years, and half of the board is up
for election every year. Five of the seats are up for election now.  The
other five are halfway through their term and will be up for election
next year.
