Since Kelly O'Hair has resigned as Group Lead, we need to elect a new Group Lead. 

I hereby nominate Tim Bell as the new Build Group Lead. With the exception of a hiatus some years ago, Tim has been working with OpenJDK since it's creation, and on the closed JDK on Sun prior to that. He has a valuable knowledge of the OpenJDK build system, and a profound understanding of all the intricacies that comes with the real-world problem of building OpenJDK.

Votes are due by Wednesday, 16 April 2014.

According to the Bylaws [1], only current Members of the Build Group [2] are eligible to vote on this nomination. Votes must be cast in the open by replying to this mailing list. If this nomination is approved by the Build Group, it will then need to be ratified by the Governing Board.

For Simple Majority voting instructions, see [3].
