Some points to address

1. Number of seats (must be clarified at next board meeting)

2. third party hosting and administering a reliable voting system

3. Revision of criteria for voters (not edit-count or at least not-only 
edit count -  how to address developers of mediawiki, staff members etc...)

4. Voting system

5. Perhaps (or not) good statistics to evaluate the voting process 
afterwards (what sysops voted versus regular editors. What english voted 
versus french etc...). I am not favorable to this myself, but I heard it 
mentionned several times

6. Pre-vote to eliminate trolling candidate
