Dear all,

Please let us give you some updates on the membership process (charter 
members nomination) [1]. Until now we got 50 nominations. 40 nominees 
already confirm the nomination and that was reflected on this mailing 
list and the New Member Nominations 2017 wiki page [2]. Please be aware 
that the table is not reflecting yet all the endorsements received by 
the nominees. It's quite challenging to keep up with that. This 
information will be updated during the weekend and one more time before 
the nomination period end. Also, the user profile link was not included 
for the nominees.  This will also be reviewed during the weekend. Some 
people raise concerns about the phrase "be aware of and protect against 
a hostile takeover of OSGeo". The reasons for this wording were 
explained by some of our colleagues here and the subject will be 
included in one of the next board meetings. That's all for the moment. 
Thank you for caring about our community!

Best regards,
Vasile & Jeff
2017 OSGeo Elections CROs
