Re: Draft election rules, announcement

I wonder if that ends up creating classes of candidates: the 'elders' who
are nominated by others and us mere mortals who need to fend for
ourselves.  Also, it could generate a love-fest of people nominating all
their favorite hackers.  It creates an administrative burden (making sure
people would be willing to serve).  But modulo all that, I like the idea

So I prefer to have people nominate themselves, and tell us why we should
vote for them.  The lovefest can kick in after people nominate themselves
(you can go cheer for them or something).
