Hi all

Nomination period for the OSGeo Charter Members elections have
finished. I've extended a grace period of 12 hours but we can't wait
more. So I'm really sorry for those that haven't confirmed their

Doing this process in July/August is not the best time to assure most

for non being more proactive in May, but we preferred to have a good
discussion on the process on June instead of deferring it for the next

Anyway, we have more than 60 excellent nominees[1], more than any
other year[2]. Today I'll finish the set up of the electronic voting
system that will send an e-mail to every charter member (using the
address provided to the Charter Members mailing list) with a personal
link to access to the voting system. If you have changed your mail
recently, please contact us (cro at osgeo.org) to update it properly.

Nominees, check your data on the wiki page[2] and if you have any
amendment sent it privately to us so we'll correct it ASAP.

It's been an intense couple of weeks, I haven't sent so many mails
before and wrote to so many people. Thank you all for your patience
and good luck to everyone with the elections.

Your CRO
