This is a repost of the original announcement made by Kohsuke Kawaguchi in the Jenkins Developer mailing list. Minor changes were applied to reflect the posting date and to provide more links.

Nominations for the 2019 Jenkins Board elections open for three governing board positions and five officer positions, namely: Security, Events, Release, Infrastructure and Documentation.

The terms of office for these positions are:

  • Officer positions (1 year): November 4, 2019 to November 3, 2020
