We did not hold elections because we had no candidates. --Walter (talk) 21:02, 15 August 2017 (EDT)

Thanks, edited. Please verify. --Quozl (talk) 21:11, 15 August 2017 (EDT)
I will dig up the discussion threads. --Walter (talk) 21:22, 15 August 2017 (EDT)
Okay, we had enough candidates that an election was not needed. --Quozl (talk) 21:51, 15 August 2017 (EDT)
I believe the same was true the previous year. I'll again try to find the appropriate thread on the lists. --Walter (talk) 07:28, 16 August 2017 (EDT)
Thanks. I've drawn together the data after reviewing three years of minutes. Also sometimes an election for a year was delayed into the next year. Several pages updated. --Quozl (talk) 20:28, 16 August 2017 (EDT)

Procedure Notes:

01. All Membership and Elections Committee members have write access to the Sugar Labs member's list.

02. The Sugar Labs member's list is kept both on the sugarlabs-vote mailing list (with emails) and on the Sugar Labs wiki page (with out emails). Additionally, all Sugar Labs Oversight Board members have a copy of the file containing member's names and emails.

03. The sugarlabs-vote mailing list has the purpose of serving the Membership and Elections Committee to maintain the Sugar Labs member's list and therefore list configuration should be kept as follows: Sugarlabs-vote Mailing list Configuration

List's administrator: members AT sugarlabs Subscription Require approval - require list administrator approval for subscriptions Emergency moderation of all list traffic.ON [currently this is not a list for communication] private_roster (privacy): Set [list of subscribers is protected by member or admin password authentication] obscure_addresses (privacy):Set [member email addresses to be transformed when they are presented on list web pages (both in text and as links), so they're not trivially recognizable as email addresses. The intention is to prevent the addresses from being snarfed up by automated web scanners for use by spammers.]

This procedure was suggested by Dave Crossland and with the configuration set, it fits our requirements for all Committee members to have write access to the Sugar Labs member's list.
