I didn't think it appropriate to comment while the election was in
progress as I was also standing. I'm responding now that the election is

I'm not sure it's appropriate to Cc ubuntu-devel@ - that will create
duplication for many readers, is not the convention I've seen used
before, and it's generally understood by Ubuntu developers that
discussion in response to an ubuntu-devel-announce@ post should be taken
to an appropriate list.

I do take the point though that it's important to enable discussion. If
I ever run an election again, I intend to add a period of time set aside
for discussion which would take place after nominees are announced but
before the vote begins. This hasn't been done before, but I assume
nobody would object to that.

I am writing up the process for running a DMB election now, and will
include that.
