I was a bit surprised at the voting result announcement today because I
couldn't find any "[VOTE] ..." messages for those two committer candidates.
Even if it  is a guideline and (P)PMC might want to have a different
process, I don't see any good reasons to avoid an official voting call per
candidate. I think it is better to follow the guideline for committer
Another thing is, if 2 years already passed and if we're concerned whether the
candidate is still interested in or not, then I think a PPMC member should
kindly contact them to ask if they're still willing to join by e-mail with
CC'ing private@. If we get a positive answer form a candidate, it seems best to
start a voting call for the candidate only.
