X.Org Plans To Finally Start Their Elections Next Week

X.ORG --
Next week is when the X.Org Foundation plans to finally start their Board of Directors elections along with having the X.Org members vote to decide whether they should become part of SPI Inc.

The 2015 X.Org elections have been running behind schedule and this year's elections are particularly important as they'll decide whether the X.Org Foundation is to become a sub-project of SPI Inc, which would handle the finances and other aspects of running the foundation in exchange for 5% of the donations and other unknown terms.

The timing of the election is pressed because the SPI's invitation to become part of them expires 90 days after their resolution, which was passed on 8 January. So if the elections now start next week -- and last for two weeks -- it could be just in time that a decision is reach before the resolution would be voided.

The plan to start the X.Org 2015 election was posted as part of today's X.Org BoD meeting minutes with a goal of starting them next Monday, 23 March.

Sadly, not brought up at today's board meeting was the outcome of X.Org's women outreach program involvement which ended recently but so far I haven't been able to find any solid results for the X.Org XCB work item.
