Subject RE: [DISCUSS] RE: [DISCUSS] Calendar for New chair of AOO
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2015 22:50:03 GMT
The August Board meeting is on August 19 and I suspect that a resolution to the Board must
be provided on or before August 17.  (I couldn't find a different deadline other than 2 days

My sense is that it is very important to be consistent and deliberate.  For me, August 16
closing of nominations is an established, public date.  There might be some generous lazy
consensus period for reaching a different nomination-closing date so long as there are no
further nominations or any request for the full time to accept nominations.  

Apart from concern that we demonstrate care in making any alterations, I am neutral with regard
to the change of the closing date.  As the only current nominee, it is awkward for me to say
any more than that.

+1 from me, provided the PMC is in agreement on it.

Please remember the original date was 16 August, so there might be
candidates out there waiting (just like Dennis was not nominated the first

In case the PMC decides to close for more candidates, I suggest a 72 hour
(+weekend if needed) lazy consensus, and then I can make the needed
resolution to board,
we might even make it to the August board meeting.
