Agree. Thank you for taking the lead in this.

I would find it more efficient if only confirmed candidates are on the 
ballot. I propose to postpone until this has been solved by explicit 
yes/no's from the candidates.

Also, as my swift candidature was (and still is) mainly targeted at 
trying to reduce the 'footprint' perceived by this role on our 
community, I'd like to reach consensus on term duration, and a 
separation between the legal/reporting tasks of the chair, and the 
technical leadership (which should be owned by the community of 
committers at large, as it has been in the past). The ASF bylaws are 
pretty clear on the role of a chair, and we should be conscious about them.

Not meaning to mess things up, but we shouldn't trip wires by moving
