I've just dug my voting invite out of the Gmail spam and voted. The discuss
list has been hard to keep up with lately, so I hadn't been aware of the
impending opening of the vote.

The OSGeo calendar http://www.osgeo.org/event/ical is a bit sparse at the
moment. Perhaps we need to track important admin events in a calendar...
