[$] Leaderless Debian

Post Syndicated from corbet original https://lwn.net/Articles/782786/rss

One of the traditional rites of the (northern hemisphere) spring is the
election for the Debian project leader. Over a six-week period, interested
candidates put their names forward, describe their vision for the project
as a whole, answer questions from Debian developers, then wait and watch
while the votes come in. But what would happen if Debian were to hold an
election and no candidates stepped forward? The Debian project has just
found itself in that situation and is trying to figure out what will happen
next.
