Hi all,

The voting period is now open.
Do we want to want to vote as a group? (I'm a bit concerned no-one even
aswered my previous email :/ ) and if so, how should we procede? I was
thinking about an internal vote, and take the results but I fear there will
be too few votes to be representative of the group. I need you, *we *and *you
*need you!
So the big question is: should I launch the internal vote and is anyone
interrested? (for obvious reasons, it would be good that someone assist me
to make sure everything is going fine).

For information, there is 12 candidates (listed with statements on
including the two seats whose terms have expired) and as remarked, none «
mentioned Wikisource specifically in their candidate statement » (source:
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:News/2019-05 ).
