I regret to report that the ballot was invalid, having received just  
shy of the required number of responses.  I'm sorry for the hassle for  
those who did respond!  However, I have taken steps to fix the problem  
in future:

- Since the Kantara rules allow me the discretion to make participants  
"non-voting" if they haven't attended two meetings in a row, I've  
notified quite a few people that they're now in non-voting status  
unless they begin attending again.  Thus, we should begin making  
quorum more easily at telecons, and so we can entertain formal motions  

- If in future we need to do electronic ballots, I will probably  
lengthen the period of time the ballot is open, just to be sure  
everyone has a good chance to respond.
