  5.2. Appointment

    1. The Project Leader is elected by the Developers.
    2. The election begins [-nine-] {+six+} weeks before the leadership
       post becomes vacant, or (if it is too late already) immediately.
    3. For the [-following three weeks-] {+first week+} any Developer
       may nominate themselves as a candidate Project [-Leader.-]
       {+Leader, and summarise their plans for their term.+}
    4. For three weeks after that no more candidates may be nominated;
       candidates should use this time for campaigning [-(to make their
       identities-] and [-positions known).-] {+discussion.+} If there
       are no candidates at the end of the nomination period then the
       nomination period is extended for [-three further weeks,-] {+an
       additional week,+} repeatedly if necessary.
    5. The next [-three-] {+two+} weeks are the polling period during
       which Developers may cast their votes. Votes in leadership
       elections are kept secret, even after the election is finished.
    6. The options on the ballot will be those candidates who have
       nominated themselves and have not yet withdrawn, plus None Of The

    7. The decision will be made using the method specified in section
       A.6 of the Standard Resolution Procedure. The quorum is the same
       as for a General Resolution (4.2) and the default option is "None
       Of The Above".
    8. The Project Leader serves for one year from their election.
