This year’s openSUSE Board elections produced the longest election period in the history of the project.
The results of the elections ended in the success of 237 out of 400 people voting in this year’s election, which is a record both in participation percentage (59.25 percent) and in actual voters (237).
This year was the first year the projected attempted to vote through Helios Voting System.
The election committee was able to solved all problems that came to their attention, said Kostas Koudaras, who was on the election committee with Chuck Payne.
“I must say that although the work of the election committee ends somewhere around here the new elected members have a long way ahead of them and we, the election committee, wish them all the best,” Koudaras said.
The candidates had several weeks of campaigning and their efforts and voluntary commitment is apprecated.
