sigh, clearly this was a templating error and no reflection on the fine
community members and friends that were not elected to the TC.

I apologise unreservedly for any offense I have caused.

I picture you being held upside down outside a window in a brick
building as you say/type this.

As one of the UNEEDED, I accept your apology, Tony. :)

Thank you to you and Tristan for completing another fine election
season. Thank you to Spencer Krum for generating the electoral rolls.

Thank you to all candidates who put themselves forward, thank you to all
folks stepping down and congratulations to all members with a seat.

Should be a great session.

Thank you,
Anita.

Thanks Tony for efficiently running this election, congrats to
the candidates who prevailed, and thanks to everyone who ran
for putting themselves out there.

It was the most open race since the pattern of TC 2.0 half-
elections was established, which was great to see.

However, the turnout continues to slide, dipping below 20% for
the first time:

Election | Electorate (delta %) | Votes | Turnout (delta %)
===========================================================
Oct '16 | 1106 | 342 | 30.92
Apr '14 | 1893 (+71.16) | 506 | 26.73 (-13.56)
Apr '15 | 2169 (+14.58) | 548 | 25.27 (-5.48)
Oct '15 | 2759 (+27.20) | 619 | 22.44 (-11.20)
Apr '16 | 3284 (+19.03) | 652 | 19.85 (-11.51)

This ongoing trend of a decreasing proportion of the electorate
participating in TC elections is a concern.

Cheers,
Eoghan

Honestly, I think that now OpenStack is better known, most people
wanting to implement their own features are just thinking about that,
and not trying to be in the community.

I could review how many people provide more than one patch, but I think
we'd see that now we have more contributors but not really helping
OpenStack, just trying to get what they want.

participating in TC elections is a concern.

Cheers,
Eoghan

Here is my take on TC election's statistics:
* voter count between L->M: +71 and M->N: +33
* those 33 new voters represent 5.33% of the voter count

So while the voter count growth doesn't scale with electorate, it is
still a positive trend where more and more people vote at each elections.

Regards,
-Tristan

​It would also be interesting to know how the "long tail" of OpenStack has
evolved over time, as well.

https://twitter.com/tcarrez/status/710858829760598017

"​A long tail: ~2500 devs are involved in #OpenStack Mitaka, but less than
200 devs produce more than 50% of changes"

652 contributors represents roughly 80% of the changes in Mitaka by
eye-balling that graph. That doesn't sound as bad.

This ongoing trend of a decreasing proportion of the electorate
participating in TC elections is a concern.

One way to look at it is that every cycle (mostly due to the habit of
giving summit passes to recent contributors) we have more and more
one-patch contributors (more than 600 in Mitaka), and those usually are
not really interested in voting... So the electorate number is a bit
inflated, resulting in an apparent drop in turnout.

It would be interesting to run the same analysis but taking only >=3
patch contributors as "expected voters" and see if the turnout still
drops as much.

Long term I'd like to remove the summit pass perk (or no longer link it
to "one commit"). It will likely result in a drop in contributors
numbers (gasp), but a saner electorate.

I agree with Thierry Carrez , I think this would help.

Along with this, we need to motivate new joiners to continue with openstack.
Most of them leave earlier or participate less due to some demotivating
factors like coding is easy but getting things reviewed is much difficult.
:)

In every group we have aome extra ordinary guys who help new contributors
join and continue with, but some are just enjoying corehood.
May be we should also make core members on rotation basis to give equal
chances to everyone. This will also motivate those who are working for
openstack in their part time.

A lot of other suggestions as well, but mail growing longer..:)
