Elections of the representative of Participating members to the Steering Committee

Our Charter describes the Steering Committee composition like that:

  • Each Steering Committee member of the IWG has a seat on the Steering Committee.
  • At least one seat is allocated to participant members. An additional seat on the committee shall be allocated to the participant members for every additional five (5) seats beyond one (1) allocated to Steering Committee members. Participant member seats are allocated following the Eclipse "single transferable vote", as defined in the Eclipse Bylaws.

For the moment, we have 3 Participating members: Intecs, Obeo and Soyatec.
