Thanks for digging it up.

Well.. we probably need to get Guy and/or Klee's votes before things are
settled, and after all this time a pre-arranged wait for the weekend is
probably ok.

My biggest worry was that months would pass, or some such..

I'm not going to be, but maybe some of the other people are.

If you happen to come across Klee or Guy could you ask them to
speak up?

I've not yet expressed a preference.  I think I've read the relevant
parts of the constitution a few more times than Dale, but Manoj had
expressed a concern that I wasn't diplomatic enough.  Since I don't
feel competent to assess my personality flaws, and since there was
no immediate need for me to express a preference I elected not to.

I expect that both are just busy.. I hope that one or the other will
speak up before too long.
