Number of candidates/re-election (was: Re: questions for all candidates)

Hrm, platforms seem to be up (mostly), so I guess that makes it "answer
questions" time.

I think it's largely a good thing; though I think the vote software will need
some changes to cope with more than eight options, at least in its reporting.

There looks like there's a lot of commonality in many of the platforms;
so I don't think it's fragmentation. Personally, I'd rather have a bunch
of good people competing for every positon -- and I think if we can
maintain that level of interest and participation, even as we improve
other things and provide other ways to participate, it'll be very healthy.

I expect so -- the details might change, but I expect Debian will still
be interesting then, and will still have problems I could help work on, so
my rationale would be the same.
