you're right!

on the other side a more open process could motivate new people to
engage more.

in our case, i don't expect anybody to walk in and crash the vote with
random opinions.

the number of people who have participated in the lgm organization has
drastically sunk in the last two years.

so, yes, this is a try to fix something that is not working as well as
it did in the past.

something that seems to better fit the opinion of the ones who were
actively and visibly caring (and had the time to do so) for the "global"
lgm in the last year.

my first proposal was a shy try at opening the process.
this is a more bold one.

if more people support your concerns, we will be back to the slight
changed process i proposed last weeek. also on sunday.
with a bigger chance for the sevilla bid to be refused, since a non
negligible part of the people on the lgm-org list seem just not to care
that much anymore.

have a wonderful day and thanks for your feedback!
