We have received insufficient nominations to fill all of the vacant
seats. The deadline for nominations is therefore being extended by *two
weeks*. This makes the timescale as follows:

  - Nominations should be received by: February 24, 2014 00:00 UTC
  - Election (if any) starts: Febuary 24, 2014
  - Election (if any) concludes: March 10 2014: ~12:00 UTC
  - New members confirmed on: March 10 2014, with terms beginning March
    11, 2014

Please consider nominating yourself if you feel you have the time and
skill to serve on this important body.
