I checked the http://meeting.sugarlabs.org/sugar-meeting/2016-12-02 log -
sorry I couldn't make it, was in transit at that time. Sameer, sorry to
hear about your colleague. No pressure, just looking forward to your next
installment - when you can :)

Tony, Jose Miguel, and Claudia, please could you reply to this email
confirming or denying your wish to stand for reelection in 2017.

Actually non-existent, because there is nothing to publicize.

No one is in charge.

There is no election to be rigged ;)

Well, sure - shoulda woulda coulda :)

I said I would do some things, and I did not do them, and no one else has
said anything about any of this.... I apologise.

- I ought to have been more proactive, and said in September when all my
time got taken with my employment that I wouldn't be able to do anything,
as I had said I would

- Each SLOB ought to have been more proactive, realised the obligation to
run the election, and solicited a new volunteer

- Anyone else active in the community could have been more proactive on this

But no one was. Alas!

Now, rather than focusing on who in this very small community ought to have
done, I suggest we all focus on moving forwards and suggest what we may do
as next steps.

I am unlikely to have any real spare time from now until mid-January. I'm
happy for anyone to ask me to do something and I'll do what I can, but
basically I'm checked out until then.
