Matthias, can you please explain to me what exactly
the "LoCo Team Contact" job is all about?
Is this just a thinly veiled disguise for the term "Leader" or not?
Personally I dont think LoCo Groups need a leader, we should just
co-operate as a group.

So if there is more than one person who is leading by example then we need
to have a vote?

Very good point.

This whole idea of a vote bugs me.
Matthias, about 2 months ago we decided we needed a leader so we could
be recognized as an official LoCo team, and so we had a vote.
Andrew (who has just joined the list) nominated himself, and didn't
get any votes.
I started this project and so it seemed appropriate that I should also
I received three votes. We had about 8 active members at that time and
two were nominatees.
I won the vote, you saw that I won because you were on the mailing list..
but... then... nothing... happened...
Next thing I knew almost two months had gone by and Andrew is again calling
for a vote.
Yes I'm sorry that I was silent for a couple months. However I don't
think my absence should have meant anything to anyone.
Or if it really did mean something and I was sorely missed and the
group couldn't function without me, then why didn't someone write me
an email or something to
find out if I was even alive?
