It's election season for the Hyperledger blockchain project.

The Linux Foundation-backed initiative is preparing to elect a new slate of members for its Technical Steering Committee. Following that election, voting for a new committee chair will occur.

The nomination period, which begins tomorrow, lasts through August 16, according to materials circulated on the Hyperledger mailing list, with voting commencing the following day. The voting period ends on August 23, and the results will be announced the day after.

Nominations will then be collected for the committee chair starting on August 24, and voting taking is set to take place between August 31 and September 6. The final results will be published the next day.

The steering committee election comes roughly a month after the project’s first major software release. As CoinDesk previously reported, the first production-ready version of Hyperledger Fabric was released on July 11.

To date, more than 140 companies have joined the Hyperledger project. Of those, members like Fujitsu have moved to begin creating commercial products with the open-source tech developed by the group.
