The Django 5.x Steering Council Candidate Registration is now open.
The official announcement is here
In contrast to previous runs, more or less, if you’re an active member of the Django community then you’re qualified to stand.
There have been two such elections since the governance was changed in DEP 10. In both of those we had candidate pools of entirely white men. Nothing wrong with those people 🥰 — but that’s not Django
Much social capital was spent adjusting the rules in DEP 12 to allow wider participation. So if you’re a member of the Django community and you’re not a white man, please do put yourself forward — Django needs you! 🦄
