I think that's a little unfair - other candidates have been chatting in the
XSF chatroom. Some other members, too.

people that the XSF can help others communicate when there isn't much
communication within.  There has been very little feedback from XSF
members.  It is doubtful that a majority of XSF members are on vacation as
it is not summer in all parts of the world. :-)

That's true, but half the candidates (guess) are travelling at the moment.
I know Arc is (he flew yesterday; we had a great chat on Monday night in
person as I'm in DC), and Ralph and Matt Wild are also both on their way to
the RealTimeConf and the XMPP Summit. Lance and Mike both work for &Yet
that's organising it, so I imagine they're busy too.

That said, the people I'm personally most interested in hearing from are
the members - it's important that the new Board (in particular) does what
they want, and it can only do that if we know what that is.

Dave.
