Re: [Draft Question Set] "Let's start the debate" - the traditional set of questions for candidates at the Board Election

Hi Bruno,

Thanks for collating the possible question set from earlier years.
This will come in handy soon.

An aspect that struck me was that a reasonably high %-age of the
candidates would perhaps be up for re-election, so in the interests of
generating a "debate" we are somewhat bound to be creative with the
questions. Most of the questions from earlier years and even my draft
set are really non-technical. We might want to ask for some technical
vision that helps members adapt to what the Board thinks and desires
