A minor correction:

  "# If fewer than 5 candidates stand for election, the 3 with the most
     votes are elected to the council."
  -- http://wiki.maemo.org/Community_Council/Election_process

The key word is *fewer*.

Exactly 5 candidates would be selected by default. No election would
*need* to be held (should we still hold one so that the electorate can
pass their opinion on the candidates, or is that just extra work for
little benefit?)

Hope that helps,
