As I understand the voting rules (as one of the people who will have 
to implement them), anyone is currently free to vote for an unequal 
board.  When the final ordered list of vote results is compiled, we 
will fill the board from the top of the list, and once a quota is 
reached for a company, simply skip all subsequent people affiliated 
with that company.  Effectively, there is an "election within an 
election" for each GNOME company to see who gets the permitted slots.

If I'm misunderstanding the rules as we've agreed on them, I'm sure 
someone will quickly correct me. :)
