Mike, looks pretty good to me. I wasn't sure about David's feedback either,
but if he sends a revised draft, I'll look that over.

Yes.  I responded to the one about the number of people seconding a
nomination.  I couldn't tell which parts of your other note were a response
to the boilerplate message that went out with the test board election or and
which were intended as actual copy for us to use.


If you'd like it incorporate any pertinent ideas from your note that I may
have left out of my draft note into a version of the note below and send it
as feedback, that would be great.

Hey Mike,

Did you see the edits I sent to this list earlier in the day?

Enclosed are drafts of two notes:  an explanatory note we'll send to
general at openid.net and a shorter note that will be sent to members when the
election begins.  Timely feedback is welcome on both.

The OpenID Foundation is holding its first election of community board
members starting today.  All members of the OpenID Foundation are eligible
to nominate themselves, second the nominations of others who self-nominated,
and vote for candidates.  If you're not already a member of the OpenID
Foundation, we encourage you to join at


Board participation requires a substantial ongoing investment of time and
energy and is a commitment that should not be undertaken lightly.  Rather,
should you be elected, expect to be called upon to serve both on the board
and on its committees where the work of the foundation is conducted, and to
actively contribute.  That being said however, if you're passionate about
OpenID and advancing digital identity, have the time to devote to community
service in this manner, and are a person who gets things done and works well
with others, we welcome your candidacy for the OpenID board of directors.


Voting and nominations are conducted using the OpenID you registered when
you joined the Foundation.  Login at
https://openid.net/foundation/members/with that OpenID to participate in the
election.  You should have also received instructions on how to participate
in a separate note from membership at oidf.org if you're already a member.  If
you experience problems participating in the election or joining the
foundation, please send a note to membership at oidf.org.


Seven community directors are being elected to the board.  The four
candidates receiving the most votes will serve 2 year terms and the three
candidates receiving the next numbers of votes will serve 1 year terms.
(This allows us to institute staggered 2-year terms going forward.)  In
order to be eligible for election, your candidacy must have been seconded by
at least three other members.


The election will be conducted on the following schedule:

                Nominations open:  Monday, November 24

                Nominations close:  Monday, December 8

                Election begins:  Wednesday, December 10

                Election ends:  Wednesday, December 24

                Results announced by:  Wednesday, December 31

                New board terms start:  Thursday, January 1


Thank you for participating in advancing OpenID!


                                                -- Mike Jones, for the
