Tab Election History

With the TAB election coming up in a few weeks, people inevitably get curious about who is on the TAB, and how long they have been there. In the spirit of answering questions that haven't been asked yet, here is the entire history of the TAB in one big table.

Before the meeting, Kristen posted a new draft of the electoral
process with past comments addressed. Everyone seems happy with the

accepted, to be clear about how many candidates could be voted for on

Public minutes for the TAB meeting held 2013-11-07, 21:00 UTC

Acer Aspire V5-571

The Acer Aspire is a secure boot system based on the Phoenix UEFI BIOS.

To get into the UEFI startup menus, press F2 on power on or reboot.  The Secure Boot key management settings are in the Security menu and the Secure Boot enabled flag is in the Boot menu.

Samsung 355E

The Samsung 355E, like all post production UEFI systems has no EFI shell, so if you want to use shell commands, you'll have to boot to a shell using a USB stick.

To activate the UEFI menus, press F2 on power on or subsequent reboot.  The system only responds to this for an instant, but if you're successful, you'll see a "Please Wait" message at the bottom right.
