Well, strictly speaking, every candidate should declare their
affiliation. The elections committee asked the candidates with no
affiliation to confirm this some years ago. Maybe we didn't do so last
year (I can't remember).

Now, I can understand that a candidate might not want to advertise his
employer or might not want to make it look as if the employer is
interested in GNOME. But as James pointed out, it's necessary to know
the affiliation of the candidates to verify the elections results.
