The results of the OpenSolaris Elections are in. Congratulations to the new board members!
So why did I entitle this post Elections Disappointment? My complaint is with the "community priorities" question which was asked; this was a chance for core contributors to indicate what they felt were pressing priorities. I was not happy with the OGB’s choice (which I didn’t know about until I voted) to reuse the same set of priorities questions from last year. One of which was:
- Deploy a public code review facility on opensolaris.org
Which was subsequently identified by voters in this election as the #3 priority. Did the OGB believe that we did not accomplish this goal in the past year? I know that I took the results of the last poll (it was voted #3 in that poll, too) to heart, and worked hard to make that goal a reality, publicized it using the official channels, and have been enhancing it and taking care of it since that time, mostly on my own time. I felt that my contribution was really undermined by the question.
Second: Who voted for this item as a priority? If you voted for this as a priority, I would like to hear why you did (anonymously is fine). Are you unaware that cr.opensolaris.org exists? Are you unsatisfied with the service it provides?
I hope the new OGB will find a way to reformulate a more cogent poll question about priorities.
