As a candidate, I guess it wouldn't be fair to assign me 5 votes so here are my votes :

[1] Kevin Kuebler

[ ] Drew Cain

[1] Piotr Szmyd

[ ] Antoine Griffard

[ ] Pedro Costa

[ ] Chris Bower

[1] Bertrand Le Roy

[1] Nicholas Mayne

[1] Sébastien Ros

It has been motivated by the number of contributions that each candidate have already made.

Totally agreeing with Antoine that putting votes for myself would obviously be far from being fair - these are my votes:

[1] Kevin Kuebler

[ ] Drew Cain

[ ] Piotr Szmyd

[1] Antoine Griffard

[ ] Pedro Costa

[ ] Chris Bower

[1] Bertrand Le Roy

[1] Nicholas Mayne

[1] Sébastien Ros

I've taken into account the community activity and contributions of each candidate.

Although I believe all candidates are capable of serving the community with great conviction and vigour, I too will vote for the candidates that I believe have been most active and contributed the most so far. Good luck all and thank you in advance for your selfless commitment towards a great and very exciting project. Looking forward to great things as Orchard moves toward the best and most preferred CMS and development platform out there.

If it was up to me I would open it up to all of you. 9 isn't that much. But I've voted based on who I've had dealings with most.

Hope everyone in the US had a nice holiday weekend. Or even if you're not in the US or it wasn't a holiday for you, hope you had a nice weekend anyway. :-) I appreciate the other candidates decision to not vote for themselves, and I will honor that convention.

I'm giving my 5 votes to Chris Bower. 

Let me explain why ...

1) Chris Bower is falling behind which concerns me (my 5 won't affect the obvious winners)

2) Chris is probably one of, if not the most experienced *end* developers in the candidate list.....

Chris Bower and his team have written (the only?) large-scale, high traffic orchard sites ( http://aclj.org ).  This site has over 100k of content items. It is driven by 31 non-trivial custom modules.  It also advances performance functionality with such things container pathing, background task (to server) isolation and shape caching.  The scale of this site has already pushed the limits of Orchard performance, uncovering numerous bugs, and influencing Orchard's architectural requirements. 

Chris's expertise is that of a heavy-weight end-developer.  It is *that* perspective and expertise which I'd like to see balancing the steering committee.   Not to mention, Mr. Bower's in-depth experience will be fed back into Orchard, thereby benefiting the whole community.

You may not recognize his name but he is always on the Orchard IRC channel (as the hoster) or his blog http://chrisbower.com/

I'm counting the votes. You can follow progress and verify here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?hl=en_US&hl=en_US&key=0Av8ggogUVszbdEliLWdRV0pFZ1A0a1JvNkN6T19FU2c&single=true&gid=0&output=html

Unfortunately, I have to remove some of the votes, in compliance with the announced rules, because of lack of discussion or issue tracker activity from the voters. I'm really sorry to have to do that, as I know you care about the project and use it, but these were the announced rules. Thank you for taking the time to vote.

Congratulations everybody! I'm disappointed to not be part of the committee of course, but it's a great group of guys that were elected to lead Orchard forward. And I will definitely still be part of the Orchard community!
