Our annual Member’s Meeting for the ASF went well, resulting in some new members getting elected as well as two new directors being elected to the board. While we wait for a bit of paperwork to get filed, let’s document what needs to happen after a Member’s Meeting at Apache.
The ASF is a membership corporation and holds an Annual Member’s Meeting every year to elect the board and nominate/elect new members. As a volunteer-run software organization, we run this process by – wait for it – by emailing around a set of cryptically formatted text files from our private Subversion repository. Of course, as (mostly) software people, we could make it easier on ourselves… with better software. Shoemaker’s children, indeed.
