The X.Org Board of Director elections aren't generally hotly contested and generally there are just enough nominees for the seats that are opening to serve on the foundation that stewards not only the X.Org Server but also Mesa, Wayland, and other open-source graphics components. This year there were four nominations for four seats. The four nominees that are now all board members now that voting has completed, included Alex Deucher, Matt Dew, Egbert Eich, and Keith Packard.
In some years of X.Org BoD voting there's been close to not meeting the 25% quorum needed to validate the elections. Fortunately, that was met this year.
Embedded below are the election results that were sent a short time ago to the X.Org Foundation members' mailing list:
Dear community members,
On behalf of the 2014 election committee I have the pleasure of declaring the board of directors election closed and of presenting the final voting scores.
Given that we had four candidates for four slots, it's no wonder all candidates were elected
Alex Deucher -> Score 104
Egbert Eich -> Score 96
Keith Packard -> Score 75
Matt Dew -> Score 70
All in all we had 37 voters, at a total membership count of 83 that is very easy within the 25% we need to declare the election valid. Thanks to everybody who voted, your commitment is greatly appreciated!
Thanks again to Matthias Hopf for his time in the board of directors while we would also like to welcome again Egbert Eich to the board (he served from 2006 to 2008)!
Cheers to our new (partly old) board members!
