Not as far as I am concerned. Looking at the track record, associations and
/ or manifesto of a candidate is more than enough information for me.

The figures also indicate that the majority of votes were cast before SoTM
started (proxy votes), so the only possibility for a debate would be a
conference call, which has similar problems to an email list.

Instead of companies donating money to OSMF which then employs someone to do
that, it's somewhat simpler to offer the time of their own employees to do
the work.
