To all X.Org Foundation Members:
The 2019 X.Org ballot closed yesterday. There is some good and some bad news.
The Good News:
The vote on the bylaw changes passed with 53 for, 1 against, and 2 abstaining.
The Bad News:
Due to some issues with our new members website all votes for new board members were recorded incorrectly. Thankfully this was fairly obvious. We believe we've found the bug and have a fix for it: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorgfoundation/xorg_membership/commit/15f27d45f1d9b1767377814835f2359f7f76c7e5
To assure you and us that we've completely fixed the issues with our elections site we have decided to run a brief mock election where you can vote for your favorite pastry. This will run until Monday Apr 15 noon UTC after which we'll tally and publish the results and confirm whether we fixed the issue. Please leave your vote at https://members.x.org/ballot/3/admin
If this all looks good we will start the new election for board members a week from today, on Apr 18, until May 2.
You can expect another email from me early-to-mid next week to confirm the start of the new election for board members.
We received quite a few membership signups after the membership deadline. We've decided to approve all currently pending signups.
Harry, on behalf of the X.Org elections committee
