You have 5 votes but there will be 9 on the council.  We discussed this at
length in today's text conference.  It was determined that the election
process will elect the best people in the Membership's view.  In addition,
if the Council doesn't perform, there's no reason why a vote of "confidence"
couldn't be held for the entire Council, called for by 10% of Membership.

Subject: Re: [Foundation] VOTE FOR THE JABBER COUNCIL

First, sorry for my late reaction on this thread.

In considering the candidates for voting, I've come to notice that if I
choose the people that I feel are most experienced jabber developers (which
is wise technically), I'm choosing a council based almost entirely of
jabber.com employees. Is the 5 vote limit suggesting that the council will
consist of 5 members? I'm not sure I have a problem with all jabber.com
council, but I'm sure that it will be an issue for other companies, etc.
Just how much power will the council hold? I, without knowing the
implications of such, would like to suggest a larger council, and that we
nominate more candidates for it. Is this a possibility or should I just vote
in on an almost all jabber.com council?
