The usual process I've seen outside of OSGeo where there is a hung vote 
is the that chair is given the deciding vote. In essence, the chair is 
given 1.5 votes.
My preference for resolving the tie breaker is:
1. Chair (Jeff) to cast the deciding vote
2. Ask the board to resolve
But I'm happy to quickly revote if required.
