Thanks for the link, Anita!

These are definitely good guidelines, but there are a couple problems with
doing the election exactly as described in the document:  It looks like to
generate the list of voters, it recommends using the list of people who
have committed code to the project in the last year. As this project is
just getting bootstrapped, obviously we have no committed code yet.

It might be possible to use mailing list activity (in [Neutron][LBaaS] in
particular) to generate this list, but also keep in mind that not everyone
who has been active on the mailing list is interested in contributing to
Octavia. For example, while Doug Wiegley has made great contributions to
Neutron LBaaS, it's probably a conflict of interest for him to participate
in Octavia, since he works for a load balancer vendor.

I do agree that the election should not be conducted by one of the
candidates in any case. What do y'all think, as far as determining the list
of who should be able to vote and/or nominate candidates?

Thanks,
Stephen
