Vicky, I went looking for an appropriate project to raise an issue and
couldn't find anything obvious.
My suggestions are not really bug worthy, as they are limited to
tweaking the process:
1. Ensure CRO acknowledges nominations so the nominator knows their
nomination has been received. (This was done.)
2. When notifying the community that it is time to vote, provide a link
to the list of people. This was done, but wasn't obvious to some of us
3. Make sure that the style used in the voting tool makes links looks
like a link (typically blue underline), as in the prior format it was
confusing (at least to me).
