Dear all,

With roughly two hours before the board nomination deadline, we have
only 4 nominations for 4 seats. From what I know, this is without
precedent in our history. As CRO, I cannot comment on the apparent low
interest for the most important decision structure in OSGeo. However, I
know that it's in the best interest of our community to have a real
competition for the board of directors. That's why I propose to extend
the nomination deadline with one more week. I'm confident that this
extra time will help OSGeo to grow the already strong candidate list for
our board.
