1) This is complex as Luke's coordinating the election as I understand 
it, but I want to make sure he's given a fair/open/transparent shot 
(without conflict of interest) should he decide to run for office 
himself, as I (*) strongly believe he should.

Not sure his own opinion of course, but there has been no more stellar 
OLPC/Sugar volunteer over the past 3 years, conscientiously supporting 
learners worldwide at almost every level, including fixing their 
hardware, ethically running a business -- and perhaps most important 
resolving disputes peaceably, and diplomatically.

I gather the guy's still in high school too and busy applying to 
universities, which might also an issue I suppose, Luke? :)

2) I just created the page 
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Oversight_Board/2010-2011-candidates to 
encourage more candidates to run, and could easily add 5 others to the 
list-of-the-willing, but please if folks could help take this very 
seriously editing that (without too many write-in candidates ;) as I 
don't want to be the only one!!!

3) Everyone please remember to email members at sugarlabs.org by Oct 1 if 
you want to vote in Sugar Labs' annual election, which you SHOULD do if 
you are participating in our effort -- remember there's a $20 fine in 
Australia if you don't vote -- and yes Please be as vain^h^h^h^hproud as 
possible including a list of your Learning/Sugar-related contributions 
in the email :)
