Dear all,

One more update. Due to some technical problems, the invitations to vote 
were delayed until last Thursday. What we propose to you is to extend 
the nomination seconding period until 28th of October (10 days instead 
of one week as it was originally planed). CRO will update the dates on 
the wiki pages.

We would like to thank the SAC for all the help in setting up the 
electronic voting system and enable invitations/reminders via email.

Vasile, Vicky and Jorge
