Announcing the third Vox Pupuli Elections Edit

Published on Nov 17, 2018 by binford2k

Vox Pupuli has opened elections for the 2019 calendar year Project Management Committee. The elections were announced at Puppet’s Contributor Summit Online. 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.


The Vox Pupuli project is now more than three years old. It represents many different collaborators, and numerous repositories of tools, plugins, and modules. 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. Read more about the committee and its selection.

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