I'm a bit torn here, showing my indecisive side quite clearly:

* We have not enough candidates for an election (3 nominations, 3 seats,
so voting isn't useful)

* To fill up the nominations is feeling very rushed, with four hours
left to go

* People on this project are not fully aware of the election

* Serious people have put up their names for nomination, and they
deserve respect and a fair/useful election

* Putting off until 24 Dec. or later for elections really means we want
to wait until the New Year, which is _very_far_off_ our schedule of
"just after the release."  Oops.

* FAMSCo seems ready to go and chomping at the bit

* If we postpone we risk losing the momentum we have

* Someone is potentially upset with the outcome no matter what the

Oops, sorry, the last point is just my "place of always being stuck" as
a leader. :)
