Re: Proposal: Shift election cycle back six months

It still looks strange to have the voting body to vote to extend the term of the current board, not the same as a general election.

Extending the terms of some leadership tend to happen under situations where something prevents the holding of regular elections... nothing comparable exists here for the GNOME Foundation.

As mentioned in the original mail: "(Note that the Board is unlikely to make
a change like this without formally consulting our membership via a
referendum.)" -> that means casting a vote.
