I agree with that.  In this case, it seems to me that 7 council members
is better for Gentoo than 6, and if the Council members do not
unanimously accept anyone down the list, then just hold an election for
the missing spot.  I think the rules pretty much have it right here.

I am neither agreeing nor disagreeing with your analysis, as that is a
matter for the council members.  I'm just saying that rather than hold
the position open, just hold a brief election to fill it.

To save some virtual trees, I'll respond to your other email about your
and Ciaran's "nobody" proposal.  Good idea, put me in the "support"
column.

Regards,
Ferris
