One of the challenges of an end-to-end web-based nomination and voting tool
is that it tends to result in very little discussion about candidates. It
would be really cool for LA members if:

 1) Nomination statements were sent to the mailing list when entered on the

 2) The returning officer or membership committee, whichever exists, could
    collate questions from members and put them to the candidates (so that
    candidates are not forced to follow numerous Q&A threads on the list).

Happy to volunteer some time to help these happen (mostly relevant to the
second point, as I suppose the first would be a quick hack to memberdb).
