      OpenStack Governance Elections: Technical Committee

Now that we have elected the Project Technical Leads for the next
release, the OpenStack community is called to elect the last 3 members
of the OpenStack Technical Committee
Per section 4.1(b) of the OpenStack Foundation bylaws
<http://wiki.openstack.org/Governance/Foundation/Bylaws>, the Technical
Committee ("TC") is a technical meritocracy managing all the technical
matters relating to OpenStack. It replaces the "Project Policy Board"
from the old governance.
