Here's the draft candidacy list

The GNOME Foundation Membership & Elections Committee is pleased to
announce the final list of candidates running for the 2005 elections.

You will find the list of candidates, the invalid nominations and the
calendar of the elections below.

Official list of candidates

1. Jonathan Blandford
2. Behdad Esfahbod
3. Christian Fredrik Kalager Schaller
4. Quim Gil
5. Dominic Lachowicz
6. Federico Mena-Quintero
7. David Neary
8. Bastien Nocera
9. GermÃn Poà CaamaÃo
10. Vincent Untz
11. Luis Villa
12. Jeff Waugh
13. Anne Ãstergaard

Are these intended to be in any particular order?  If in alphabetical by
last name, I'd place Anne between Bastien and German, and Christian
should be sorted by Schaller, nor Fredrik, putting him between German
and Vincent.

This list, a summary of each candidate's statement and a link to each
candidate's candidacy can be found at:

Baris will soon send questions to the candidates to launch a debate on
foundation-list. Feel free to participate to the debate.

Invalid nominations

There's no invalid nominations for this election.

(all deadlines are 23:59 UTC/18:59 EST)

Original schedule had the list of candidates sent on the 16th, and
hopefully the questions sent on that day or the next.  This should have
kicked off the discussions.  Discussions on the list have been
non-existent so far.  We are sending out the list of candidates 5 days
late.  I'd like to at least have the option to extend the discussion
Indeed that's true. But we're still have time for candidates to discuss
and this has not been changed. I don't know announcing the candidates
before has something to do with that. 

For me personally, I either vote the first day the ballots are sent, or
I forget, and don't vote at all.  The only way extended discussions are
useful to me is if we push back all the dates from the ballot sending
onward by however much.
I second that. But as I said we do not change the discussion time. If we
will change the schedule we should do that as soon possible and announce
candidates with this schedule.

I could still be convinced that changing the dates is a bad idea,
Is there any other comment about this? Other committee members agree
with us on keeping current schedule?
