Good stuff - I'm supportive and will help out where I can.  Maybe drop me a note with date of your vacation when you get a chance.

> I didn't find a clear rule about how to launch the elections in the bylaws and according to the thread from last year around the same dates it doesn't seem that we need an official board motion to start the election (which would require +1 from all board members unless I'm mistaken), so I'll just make an informal proposal here and if it gets +1's from a majority of the board members (and no -1) then we'll go ahead. (If anyone thinks this is not the right procedure then please speak up ASAP)
