Nominated but declines nomination
- Andrew Piskorski: would like to work on the OCT, but now isn't a particularly good time. Whoever nominated me, thanks for the vote of confidence! But currently I think there are enough other candidates who, one, are equally or better qualified, and two, have much more time to contribute than me, that I should decline.
- Jerry Asher
- Carl Robert Blesius
- Talli Somekh
- Vinod Kurup: I'm flattered (Thanks Jade!), but feel that I can't provide consistent time to OpenACS and there are much better candidates above.
- Frank Nikolajsen: Unfortunately I fell I have to decline the nomination for the OCT. Currently
my employment situation is rather uncertain come new year, so I don't know
how much time I will have for OpenACS related work next year. I would like to
stress that this decision has nothing to do with OpenACS or the people behind
