Hello Everyone!

This is time for the Z development cycle Technical elections.

Election details:  https://governance.openstack.org/election/ 
The nomination period officially begins Feb 8, 2022 23:45.
Please read the stipulations and timelines for candidates and electorate contained in
this governance documentation.
The PTL and TC elections for the coming cycle will run concurrently; deadlines for their
nomination and voting activities are synchronized but will still use separate ballots.
Please note, if only one candidate is nominated as PTL for a project team during the PTL
nomination period, that candidate will win by acclaim, and there will be no poll. There will
only be a poll if there is more than one candidate stepping forward for a project team's PTL
position. If teams do not produce any PTL candidate during the nomination period, or are
interested in considering alternatives prior to nominations, the TC may consider requests to
switch to the new distributed leadership model they recently documented[1].
In keeping with the established plan[1 ] to gradually reduce the size of the Technical Committee,
we will only fill five (5) seats in this coming election.
There will be further announcements posted to the mailing list as action is required from the
electorate or candidates. This email is for information purposes only.
If you have any questions which you feel affect others please reply to this email thread.
If you have any questions that you which to discuss in private please email any of the election
officials[3] so that we may address your concerns.
