DarrenHill was voting admin, as his seat was not up for re-election.

Nomination notice

The following notice posted on the Team Kodi private forum, and linked to in an e-mail to all Foundation members, to give due notice about the election and to collect nominations. The Foundation bylaws state that at least ten days must be given for a notice about member decisions such as an election, which served as the nomination period.

Nominations for the XBMC Foundation Board Elections 2023", as written by DarrenHill

It's almost September, meaning it's time for the yearly XBMC Foundation board elections again.

This year board member seats up for election are: Yol, Ronie and Da-anda. Seats not up for election are Keith and DarrenHill (me) - so don't nominate us as we don't need two seats ;)

The rules are pretty simple:

1. Any team member can nominate, but the nominee must be a member of the Foundation*. 2. You're allowed to nominate multiple people if you wish. 3. The nominated member has the option to accept or decline their nomination. 4. Only foundation members will be able to vote. * 5. If a person has already been nominated, please don't nominate them again.

Please make sure to keep your nominations simple and clear. Eg:

Nominate: <member> Motivation: I would like to nominate <member> for the XBMC Foundation Board because <motivation>

In case you're nominated, please reply with something like..

Thank you. I accept my nomination. <motivation>


No, thanks. I decline my nomination. <Optional motivation>

The second post in this thread wil be updated with a list of members and the nomination status on a regular basis, so you don't have to crawl through all posts/pages to check.

The nomination period is 1 month starting today and will end on October 1st. Actual voting will begin after that and will be closed a couple of weeks later (if a vote is required) Once the voting is over, the results will be announced in this thread as well as though a team email.

The actual starting date for the new board seats will be in November, when we would like to have a joint online meeting with the old and new board members as a smooth hand-over and to welcome the new board members.

  • If you'd like to vote in the election, you need to be accepted as a foundation member and affirm the by-laws of the foundation.
