Re: Proposal: Shift election cycle back six months

Andy Tai a �it :
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.

Indeed! Here is how the mandate of french presidents went from seven to five years : - a referendum chose to modify the term length -- but not for the then-current president ; - a normal election happened at the normal date for a new president with the new term.

This made the 'who' and the 'how long' independent, and I think there is wisdom in it.
