Please don't spread FUD.

This has been discussed over a month ago:

There has been a reminder two weeks later:

It has been set as a topic for the IRC channel (#sugar on Freenode) for 
about a month. Also there was a call to put oneself on the membership 
list in the context of the election as early as 2009-08-05 [1] (i.e. 
almost two months ago) at a minimum (haven't tried at all to find 
anything even older).

While it could have been announced more clearly (e.g. by sending out an 
_election_ reminder noting the membership status deadline), this is 
_very_ far from "first before a call for elections".
