Seems like we need a bit added to this process which makes sure big tent
projects have their primary IRC channel identified, and a list of core
reviewer and meeting chair IRC nicks to ping when something urgent comes
up. This isn't just useful for elections, but is probably something the
VMT would appreciate as well, and likely anyone else who has an urgent
need to make contact with a team.
I think it might also be useful if we could make the meeting bot remind
teams of any pending actions they need to take such as elections upon
Seems like all of that could be automated.
