Technical Governance in OpenStack:

Guidelines for Election Officials:

I recommend asking or designating someone to act as an election official
for the election. OpenStack elections need two officials, Stackforge
elections often have one, though you can have two if you wish. Establish
which processes you as a group will follow for the election. Part of the
election official's job is to open nominations.

Congratulations on the new Stackforge project, may you have a good
election process,
