You're right the minutes aren't clear.

My recollection is that we had decided to make the list of eligible
voters and eligible nominees who are also listed as potential
financial contributors as of the start of the nomination process (last
week). That means folks can't add themselves to the list afterwards to
vote (they can add themselves but they're not eligible to vote).[1]

We didn't make the nomination process limited to only those folks
listed (we didn't discuss it as far as I remember) and so folks are
free to nominate who they like, but final voting will be limited to
that list.

We hadn't discussed the board size. I'd assumed it would be 4, and
speaking to Kate earlier, said it should be 5 or 7 members.

We need to resolve this.

Also, this election is for the temporary board for incorporation and
will last, I believe six months or less, in order to "jumpstart" the

Further elections will be by member of the organization.
