Hmm ....

The idea with the thread which people can follow is good, but I don't think
it's such a good idea to have people nominate themselves on Gnotices.

Just look at how followups to Gnotices posts normally go; a lot of people
reply, especially to such an "interesting" topic and you'll get a lot of noise
there so it will be hard to follow the important posts.

Also, Gnotices isn't such a good medium to fully track a thread and keep
informed, a mailing list is much better suited for this job. Since the
foundation-list is open to everyone, everyone who likes to follow the discussion
is free to subscribe here, so we should do the nominations here.

Btw. I also don't think a public forum like GNotices is such a good place
to hold the nominations. Almost all political parties hold their nomination
procedures in some place where basically everyone can attend but which looks
