I'm sorry for raising this objection so late, but I think this
violates 5.2.8 "The Project Leader serves for one year from their
election". 5.2.3. says that "The election begins nine weeks before
the leadership post becomes vacant...". The post becomes vacant on
2003-04-10 (according to 5.2.8), therefore the nomination period
should start on February 6 and voting on March 20.
