As you probably know, the next LT elections are coming up in a bit less
than a year – the plan is to hold elections around August 2021. Half
the current LT seats will be up for re-election.
The current election process is documented in our wiki at
It was first used in the 2020 election. In a nutshell, the current
process allows community members to nominate themselves (or someone
else) for a seat on the LT. After contacting all the nominees, the LT
publishes the list of nominations and encourages the community to
provide testimonials for the nominees. The current LT then votes on the
For the 2022 election the LT wants to update the above mentioned LT
Process and Description document. As described in the document, we are
hereby seeking community input.
Specifically, the LT Process and Description currently states that we
want to have an open community election starting with the 2022 election.
The LT discussed this in the last few meetings. It is the opinion of the
LT that at the current time there is not yet a sufficient number of
community-led groups to have a meaningful broader voting process. Hence,
we propose to remove the sentences that refer to changing the election
process for the 2022 and following elections, keeping the current voting
process. A future LT can revisit this topic, once there are more active
members in community-led groups.
If you have any feedback about this change, please let us know within
the next four weeks (by 2021-12-15), either by responding to this
message, by mailing the LT at lt(a)lists.zeek.org, or by mailing me
