Helllo all! Hola a todos!

I'm addressing the community and the Oversight Board with great news as
Ignacio, Samson and I (Laura), understanding the mission of the Oversight
Board (to ensure the Sugar Labs community has clarity of purpose and means
to collaborate in achieving its goals), would like to *confirm our
intention to become part of the Board for the 2016-2018 period*.

As interested as we are in participating, we have decided to unite our
forces in order to help out with this year's election. From 2015 election's
call [1], we understand there are 3 seats available for the period
2016-2018 and will be calling openly for additional candidates to make it a
fair election :D

According to our time availability we have pre-agreed on the following
election schedule:

01 Additional candidates call and deadline: January 7 to January 21.

02 If by January 22 we have more than this 3 candidates, we will need to
have members list debugged by the 30th of January. If by January 22 we
don't have any additional candidates, we would have 3 candidates for the 3
board places and no election may be necessary.

03 Send ballots and run the elections for the period from February 1 to the
28th of 2017.

Hopefully current Board members will find it convenient to second the
following motion for approval during the upcoming Slobs January's meeting:

*Motion 1 for January 2017's meeting:*

"To appoint volunteers Ignacio Rodriguez, Samson Goddoy and Laura Vargas as
the new elections and membership committee, with the purpose of debugging
current membership list and running the 2016's elections for the 3 seats at
the Board available for the 2016-2018 period and to appoint Dave Crossland
as an impartial election oversight party."

Regards and may the holidays find you all in a good cycle of joy and
