I don't want to derail the voting process, but would like to clarify this part:

 recommend a new chair through consensus via a lazy 2/3 majority 
 voting method.  In the case that consensus is not achieved, the PMC
 will vote for a chair using Single Transferable Vote (STV) voting.

At first, I thought the first part meant voting on a number of candidates - but reading this
thread it seems you meant:
- take nominations, discussion ensues
- if there is one name settled vote to confirm the decision to present to the board
- if there's not a single name, then use STV

Is that right? It may need a bit of clarification on what the first vote is about - but I
don't think that should change the vote in progress.
