The starting point for me was not the document on the wiki (which I assumed 
was obsolete and would be replaced with the council's proposal for a new 
election process when we eventually received it) but the way the election was 
run last time -- nothing more or less.

So, for me, it was a surprise that Andrew thought the 25-point rule should be 
re-instated/retained.  And it was also a complete surprise that you, Benson 
and others thought the description of the election process in the wiki 
document had any relevance to the discussion of the replacement process.

Maybe it wasn't for others.  Maybe I am the only stupid person on this list 
and it was obvious to everyone else.  But, on the other hand, maybe there are 
others who also don't realise this is being proposed.  I feel it needs 
discussion here and on ITT and, in particular, someone should be willing to 
stand up and explain why they believe the council should only represent 
contributors, not users.

I suppose it might also be useful to know how many people who voted last time 
still have less than 25 points.  Dave, could you work that out for us?
