The reason I suggested Monday as the dates to finalize things on is because
sometimes I dont check email on the weekends. My free time consists of
Mondays/Tuesdays and sometimes Wednesdays, sometimes those are the
times I even get to see a computer and sometimes not even then if Im
really busy.

I will continue the redesign stuff.

Nobody asked if any help was needed on the list, and you cant simply
take control of
something because you feel like it or because it seems inactive to you.

If you would like to help me, thats great, I'll talk to Matthias about
getting you
access to the server if you dont already have it.

We still need to discuss how the voting will actually take place. 
Do we want a secret ballot? 
The last time we voted people just sent their vote in to the mailing list
but it didnt seem like that was very well supported.

Another option is that we could use a poll on a forum, phpBB style.
