1) Vote - The vote should proceed as described earlier. Changing the dates 
is confusing and I have heard from a number of members that we don;t want 
this to be a long drawn out process. The Wiki page has been setup and 
communicated. lets move forward as is and not mention dates anymore.

2) Webpage - The web page redesign stuff has been picked up by shadowing and 
I since it looked like no one was doing anything about it. We would love to 
have help because neither of us are web designers. We just saw a need and 
through our hats in the ring. We have been putting in some time on this, 
working with the French LoCo. We currently have a number of ideas that we 
are ready to bring to the group. An update will follow, maybe today.

3)Voting - We talked last night on IRC about having a mailing list vote. One 
person would be responsible for counting the votes and updating the Wiki 
page. nominees not voting sounds good to me too.
