X.Org Elections Are Next Month, Will Vote Again About SPI Merger
The X.Org Board of Directors nomination period begins tomorrow and runs through 15 March. Following that three week period, the publication of candidates is expected on 17 March followed by a public Q&A for anyone wanting to ask questions to the potential new directories.
The X.Org 2016 elections are currently expected to begin 30 March and run through 12 April. Four seats are up for grabs with the X.Org board seats expiring this term for Alex Deucher, Matt Dew, Egbert Eich, and Keith Packard. More details on this year's election plans via the X.Org Wiki.
Besides electing new officers, there will also be the vote again that's ultimately about whether to merge with SPI, Software in the Public Interest. Last year's X.Org+SPI voting failed due to not securing the minimum number of needed votes.
