To my intense embarrassment I had not realized that Gordon was not in the
nomination list when the board reviewed the new members.  He had been
intending to attend the Chicago meeting, and I am *assuming* was a write-in
of some of the existing members.

The membership process document did not explicitly disallow voting for
someone not on the nomination list, though many of us had assumed you
could/should only vote for nominated individuals.

I have raised this issue with the board for discussion.

I would also like to mention I misspelled Ned Horning's name in the last
email.  My apologies.

Best regards,
I set the clouds in motion - turn up   | Frank Warmerdam, warmerdam at pobox.com
