Well, a possible timeline is:

* Candidates are announced early/mid-October
* Elections begin shortly after and run for a few weeks until early-November
* Announce the new board  mid-November
-- Then we have that December-Early January period where everyone is
super busy, taking lots of time off, also tends to be a busy Pg
development period...

Hand-offs in leadership will be much easier and faster if they're done
in-person - and I prefer to link this with a conference, rather than
scheduling another expensive meeting outside that.
