If the rest of the Technical Board agrees, I'd be happy to simply
re-enable Jonathan's membership on the ARB without doing the whole vote
setup thing.

The rationale here is that there's a single nominee for 3 seats
available on the board, so not really anything for the Ubuntu community
to choose from.

Jonathan was also a previous ARB member who had to step down due to
limited personal time. So I'm personally fine with his application just
like I was when he first joined the ARB in October 2011.

I'm happy to setup a usual two-weeks long CIVS poll for this, but my
feeling is that it'd be a bit of a waste of time and effort in this case.


I'm planning on simply re-enabling his membership for two years on
Friday unless someone objects to it by then.
