You did ask for a place to ask questions, which is quite reasonable. I'm glad
you're happy withe the mailing list Q&A. You did also say though:

That's a rather more substantiative suggestion. Also, a random draw doesn't
really fit with the the Ubuntu Leadership CoC says about measuring support:
(yes, I know it doesn't fit word for word, since this is an election, not a
delegation, but the principle applies - the Kubuntu Council can only be
effective as long as the Kubuntu membership supports it).
Anyway, enough political theory, back to the campaign ...
