Announcing the second VoxPupuli Elections Edit

Published on Jan 4, 2018 by nibalizer.

Vox Pupuli is having, somewhat late, it’s second election for the project management committee. This blogpost will give you the context and how to become a candidate.

Vox Pupuli is a collective of Puppet module, tooling and documentation authors all working together to ensure continued development on the code we maintain.


Vox Pupuli now represents 71 collaborators, and 143 repositories. In order to make this project successful in the long term, we elect a list of PMC officers to make big decisions and guide the organization in the right direction. This is all laid out in the governance document.

TL;DR The Committees members are elected by the community for 1 year. They take care of the Code of Conduct and its values, participate in strategic planning, amongst other things.

Open-Source Communities nowadays gain a lot from having a structure that can take action when bad things happens, and also when improvement is needed. We already have a Code of Conduct in place, but we obviously need to ensure it is respected.

The PMC has set Spencer Krum to be the Election Officer and to run the elections, as stated in the Governance Document. Spencer is not running for PMC re-election.
