Jeff,

in the last board meeting, only 2 days ago you wrote literally:

14:48:11	jmckenna:	we are running out of time
14:48:19	jmckenna:	(as in for the 2015 elections)
14:48:24	jmckenna:	it must be started now

I’m still -1 on pushing this as a board decision only.

Best regards,
Bart

Please check last year's dates, they were much later and tight.  We have time, the dates were picked randomly by me and can be easily changed through a wiki edit.
