[Board] Motion to accept 21 new charter members instead of 20

The Charter Member election voting period has ended, I have compiled the
vote results and unfortunately we have a tie for the 20th slot. The New
Membership Process  page suggests that in case of a tie the CRO
should use a random method to break the tie, but I would like to avoid
that if possible.
The board decided at the Sept. 18 meeting  that we'd go with 20% new
charter members this year, and I (as CRO) had calculated/announced that
this would mean 20 new members. However since we have a tie for the 20th
slot and 20% of 104 = 20.8, we could round the number up to 21 and still
be within the limits set by the board.
So unless I hear objections in the next 24 hours, I plan to announce the
selection of 21 new charter members based on the above logic.
Daniel, your CRO for 2011
