For the record, I would have been fine with re-opening the application
period, if I had thought it was necessary.

However, please note that the "application period" is actually the
"recruiting period", i.e., the time when I actively reach out to people
and cajole them into volunteering to spare an hour or two of their time
each week to help with the business and technical work of the XSF by
serving on the Board or the Council. Yes, every year a few people
volunteer on their own, but especially for the Board (and nowadays it
seems even for the Council) I need to do quite a bit of recruiting,
because spontaneous applications would leave us with only a few people
serving in these positions. I'll let you to draw your own conclusions.
