Why would a shortlist need to be publicised? Do you mean actually
listing the names of the candidates, or simply stating that "there is
a short list of candidates"? I am not sure posting the names of those
"still in the running" is that common a practice. Or are you
referring to more publicity within the higher-ups of the Foundation?
