Hi everybody,

Just a quick update and reminder. 

The nomination period for the Chief Maintainer position ends tonight (at 23:59 CEST). Please remember that if you choose to nominate someone, that person also has to accept the nomination by that time.

My original plan didn’t leave any time between nomination period and start of voting. That’s of course somewhat unrealistic. So I hope it’s ok for me to push back the voting period by one day to give us a bit of time to prepare the voting based on the final set of candidates. 

This means that voting will start on Friday, 3rd of June 2022 at 0:00 CEST and end on Thursday the 16th of June 2022 at 23:59 CEST.
