Hi all,

Yesterday we had the board meeting (logs[1], minutes this evening) and I
volunteered for the CRO role this year, with the kind help of Jeff McKenna,
Cameron Shorter and likely our secretary Jachym Cepicky.

I would try to go on the automated votes process[2] as with 181 charter
members, manual e-mail voting seems so time consuming. With the limited
resources (mostly time) I'm afraid developing our own voting system is not
so convenient and I would prefer to use a service or install something that
is already working.

I know the guys after Opina[3], a JEE survey software that could be used as
a voting system, or just use their on-demand service that is free and seems
to work fine[4]. We could import the charter members list (as CSV) and send
a personalized link, so members can vote on the system on the allowed dates.

What do you think? Any other ideas or experiences on how to gather almost
200 people votes fulfilling our requirements?
