First, kudos to Jehan for taking the initiative to draft the text!

I agree with bear.  The XSF needs to present a professional public face, 
especially about something as serious as board and council elections.  
This is particularly important as the XSF tries to attract new members 
and quality candidates for the board and council in future elections.
