as lars' mail sadly doesn't provide any actual guidance what exactly you're supposed to base your vote on, here's my own stab at it:

That was certainly on purpose. People need to make up their own mind and I don’t want to advertise my own opinions here.

you need to decide
- whether my professional judgment (regarding a build tool, as qt's   former build system maintainer) deserves the contempt demonstrated by   mr. kandeler in both word and deed
- whether me getting rebellious against him was appropriate conduct   given the circumstances (which essentially depends on how   authoritarian your reading of the qt governance model is)

Voting will be open for one week

this doesn't matter much unless the vote is close, but this period is way too short - for example, the waiting period for new nominations is  15 work days.

Please see https://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/development/2021-October/041840.html, where I proposed a 7 days voting period. This wasn’t contested by anybody.
