I am sorry if you are frustrated.  One of the hardest and most
important parts of open source development is sticking to the release

In order to coordinate the efforts of large numbers of volunteers
(please remember that every contributor at Sugar Labs is a volunteer),
we must set and enforce deadline.  If we let deadlines slip without a
very good reason, they quickly become meaningless.

With that being said, I have taken a snapshot of the membership list
provided by the membership committee as of the freeze election freeze
date for use in this election.  I would encourage the membership
committee to open the membership merger window again.  I would also
like to encourage you and any other new participants to apply for
