It's election season and time to vote for the Community Contributor Representative to the Community Council. It's been a while. The CCR holds a seat on the Community Council for one year (more or less) and represents you. Laurent Godard has been the most recent CCR.

Voting begins immediately (now) and ends Saturday 22 December at 23:59 UTC. To vote, follow the instructions below, right after the candidate statements.

There are two candidates for the CCR office. The candidate is supposed to be someone who is familiar with (project and product) and familiar to the community. He or she should be able to speak to the needs of endusers, non-coding contributors, businesses, as well as the Incubator project leads and members. Both candidates are qualified. They are:

* Kazunari Hirano

I am Kazunari Hirano from Japanese Native Language Project, working as Marketing Contact for Japan and Japanese language. I have been the deputy for CCR, leading CJK (Chinese, Japanese, Korean) Group. My focus is the localization of I want to help localize to as many languages as possible. I and my team are starting Ainu and Klingon localizations. I write articles for Newsletter. Community is all about Communication and Motivation. I would like to open up a daily channel between Community Council and Community Members.


* Cor Nouws

It's a honour for me that I've been asked to be a candidate. I am 48 yrs, Dutch, maried, three children, and - as far as time allows - do hobbies like sports and making music. I got involved in the community in 2004. The reason fits in the open source tradition: I run a small business supporting our great program and want to spent some energy to make it flourish even more.

My activities for the project are various (marketing, qa, ux, Duth NL,...) which gives me a pretty good feeling of what is going on. I'm quite well aware of the special qualities of the project, such as the technical complexity, variation in background of people involved, vast interest of big players in the market, different needs for various groups and so on. I do have some experience in committees, which might be helpful to do some good work in the community council.
