Election started template

Subject: openSUSE Board election
The openSUSE board election just started! Please go to:
https://connect.opensuse.org/pg/polls/read/digitaltomm/42100/opensuse-board-election-2012 and cast your vote for this election. All openSUSE members[1] are eligible to vote.

The board consist of one appointed chairperson and 5 elected members who may serve up to 2 consecutive terms on the board.
In this election we will have 2 seats to get elected. Henne Vogelsang's seat is coming to expiration, and in addition he is completing his two-term limit. That means he is not eligible for re-election this time.
Manu was appointed this year after Peter Linnell stepped down. Peter was elected in January of 2011. Thus, Manu's seat is up for election, but he is eligible to get re-elected.

The election period ends at December the 16th.
All candidates have put their agenda on the wiki[2], linked as "Platform" after the candidates' name.

If you have any questions, please contact the election officials (election-officials@opensuse.org).
