Amendment to the Xubuntu Stradegy Document
Hash: SHA1

I am planning to amend the Stradegy Document for electing the next
project lead. Since this does change the governing directive, your
comments are welcome, either opposed or for the change.

Accordingly to the Xubuntu Stradegy Document

The Xubuntu project lead serves a term of three releases after which he
or she must seek reconfirmation from the Xubuntu community via a public
meeting. If consesus is unable to be found, the matter is referred to
the Ubuntu Community Council.

Since this is all that is said about choosing the project lead, I am
proposing the following amendment to the Xubuntu Stradegy
Document. I would really appreciate your thoughts and input on this.

The Xubuntu project lead is chosen by a popular vote during a Community
Meeting. Those elgible to vote are the members of the Xubuntu Users
team in launchpad. This team includes both Xubuntu Contributors and
Xubuntu Council, thus will be able to choose an effective project lead.
Project lead nominations are made one month in advance of the election,
by members of Xubuntu Users. These nominations may be submitted by an
individual nominating themselves or someone else. The leader be voted
on during a Xubuntu community meeting.

It is recommended that nominees add relevant information for the
election to their personal wiki pages (eg: activities in the relevant
team and specific interests today, thoughts about the most important
challenges of the team in the next year, what you'd like to see change
in the team, work to focus on as the project leader).

The project lead is to be the person receiving a simple majority vote.
The person receiving the second highest vote will be the interim
project lead should the project lead be unable to fulfill the entire
