This proposition makes a lot of sense to me. Is there an objection to

Also, I would like to see a rule about Planet GNOME and similar sites:
I'm not sure that all the candidates will be represented on Planet GNOME
and this could give some advantage to candidates who are. I see three

 a. leave as it is and don't care about this (ie, it's not a real problem)
 b. make sure that all candidates have the opportunity to appear on
    Planet GNOME (and similar sites)
 c. ask the candidates to debate on foundation-list, and nowhere else

I think we should go with option c.

What do you think?
