Hi Scott again,

I don't actually want to draw lots, I just felt that this election was
rather a bit difficult to vote on, since all 4 candidates have dedicated
years into KDE and Kubuntu.

The two questions I asked will be the determining factor for me to vote on
which candidates, since I not only care about Kubuntu, I care about the
whole Ubuntu community.

Thank you Scott for your suggestions:)

Regards,
Howard Chan (smartboyhw)
