      Description

      The Process Document is currently very specific about the timing of the annual elections. While the process ought to be well-defined the wording should be changed to permit the PMO some flexibility in the timing.

      For example, it could say that announcements and nominations must begin "at least x weeks before the elections" and that the elections must be carried out between dates x and y".

        Because this issue is somewhat vague e.g. "permit more flexibility", it is difficult to say with certainty that this issue is completely addressed, but I'm confident that the PMO editors have added the flexibility they need. As a result, this issue can be closed.

        6.4.2 ELECTION PROCESSES

        All JCP Members are eligible to vote in ballots for Ratified and Elected Seats subject to the provision that if a Member has majority-ownership of one or more other Members, then that group of Members shall collectively have one vote, which shall be cast by the person they designate to be their representative for the ballot in question.

        If the PMO has reason to believe that an organization is attempting to influence the outcome of an election by instructing its Agents how to vote the PMO should take all necessary corrective actions and then report the matter to the EC for approval.

        Annual elections for Ratified and Elected Seats shall be held simultaneously. Voting in these elections shall be held in the last quarter of the calendar year and will start four weeks after the nomination period.

        In the interest of promoting transparency and participation in the election process the PMO shall organize teleconferences at which the Members have an opportunity to hear from and to ask questions of the candidates. If a suitable venue such as JavaOne is available the PMO shall also organize a public meeting with the same purpose.
