Seems likely.

Like Aniello, I am very happy to endorse the five candidates and I don't think 
an election is needed.

I like the poll idea.  I think it would be good to better understand what the 
community wants to achieve given how much has changed over the last year or 
so.  For example, what should be the focus on supporting mainstream N900 users 
running Maemo 5 (things like keeping the Extras/downloads structure available, 
supporting/driving/controlling the CSSU, etc.) or older device users or N900 
users running MeeGo or Harmatten or even efforts to port Maemo or Harmatten to 
other devices!
