[Board] OSGeo 2019 Elections - Update to the board

Dear OSGeo board,

The nomination period for charter members ended on 2019-10-20. We had 39
nominations. Since we have some last minute nominations, we waited four
more days to receive all the confirmations and to let all new members
create their OSGeo accounts.

Even though, right now we still have 10 people (out of 39) missing
confirmation and/or OSGeo profile. We just send a reminder to
charter-member mailing list, with the current status. We will wait one
more day. We will not accept nominations without a positive confirmation
by the nominee and without a OSGeo profile.

We would like to ask the Board to shift in the election calendar, so
that we allow proper time for community review and voting. The new
calendar would be the following:

Charter member elections:
* Community review and voting: 2019-10-25 to 2019-10-31
* Final status: 2019-11-01

Board elections:
* Nomination period: 2019-11-01 to 2019-11-14 (2 weeks)
* Campaign period: 2019-11-15 to 2019-11-21 (1 week)
* Vote for new Board members: 2019-11-22 to 2019-11-28 (1 week)

If the board agrees, we will update the wiki and then announce the
updated calendar.

Best regards,

Jorge Gustavo Rocha and Anne Ghisla
(your 2019 OSGeo Elections CROs)
