Six candidates doesn't sound like enough to allow the smaller projects
to be represented. If only candidates that can get a large number of
endorsements are allowed to stand then only candidates that are known
by a large number of people (ie. contribute to large projects) will be
able to stand. While you can vote for someone you don't know (since
you can find out about them during the election), you can't really
endorse them.
