Dear all,

Based on the feedback received from two of our members (thank you 
Dimitris and Gert-Jan), I did a small change in the voting system. The 
change is on the number of votes than one can cast. The initial system 
was maximum 5, minimum 5, which does not make sense if you want to 
abstain on more than 5 nominations (the rule was inherit from the survey 
template used last year). Also, according to our process rules  "You can 
cast up to 5 votes, for 5 different people." [1]. Now, before making 
this change, 35 people already voted. The votes are anonymized but I can 
go through Limesurvey setting to check if is possible to reset someone 
votes. Please let me know on cro at osgeo.org if you already voted and you 
were unhappy with the fact that the system forced you to cast 5 votes.
